Grandmaster since 1954, Mr..


Ludek Pachman - one of the few players whose lives far beyond this rather closed professional world and became a real example for fellow. However, before 1968 hardly anyone could suggest a. Ludek was the first postwar Czechoslovak grandmaster pores which began to successfully represent his country (which he won the championship seven times!) On the international arena. Suffice it to say that he won three zonal tournament and participated in five zonal. Incidentally, in Portoroz (1958) Pachman was very close to becoming a contender - he did not have half point. In addition, 50-60E Ludek was the undisputed leader of his team at the Olympics. Generally, in these years Pachman played great, although many chess fans of his name is associated with a nice combination with the victim of a queen, which the party with the Czechoslovak grandmaster carried Petrosyan.

I think the most memorable for Ludek is a tournament that he did not win, and divided the second place. This is the Capablanca Memorial in 1963, where the marathon Pachman scored 11! Alas, the winner of the tournament, Korchnoi furious "knocked out" by half a point more. Already at an early stage of his chess career Ludek found remarkable literary ability. He - the author of numerous collections of tournament and capital works on the debut of the theory. Life Ludek abruptly changed after the famous events of the Prague Spring in 1968. As a teenager, convinced communist, he radically changed his views and stood in open opposition to the regime. As a result, Pachman twice jailed. Maybe it was worth grand master of several years of his life (he was badly damaged skull and spine) did not break his resolve. In 1972, Ludek allowed to emigrate to Germany. In life Pachman was still a lot of interesting events: the boycott of tournaments with the participation of its Soviet bloc, the failure of an inter Manila, winning the championship of Germany, playing at the Olympics for a new team. After the Velvet Revolution, Ludek triumphantly returned to his homeland.
