Jan Sendall

Chessplayers throughout the Dyfed region were shocked and saddened to learn of the unexpected death of Haverfordwest's Jan Sendall last week. He was killed in a road accident on his way to a match on the evening of Monday 10th December. A regular player in league matches and the Dyfed Closed and Dyfed Congress, Jan was a true lover of the game with an ingenious and resilient style, capable of playing well above his grading, as I for one know to my cost. For all his determination as a competitor, he was always a genial and relaxed presence at the board and in conversation afterwards, and will be greatly missed. There are tributes to him on the Haverfordwest and Dyfed League websites.
