Leslie WITT, 72: Chess 'superstar'
Received carved set from Fidel Castro
By Catherine DUNPHY, Obituary Writer
Leslie WITT never talked about the time he beat Bobby Fischer at his own game -- but others did for years afterwards.
It was 1964 and the chess world's greatest prodigy had not yet knocked out Russian great Boris Spassky from his world domination, but the 19-year-old was still a huge chess star and all of Montreal's and Toronto's chess players were thrilled when he showed up for some exhibition matches.
His first day in Montreal, Fischer was subjected to a vapid television interview. He hated being asked questions about dating; he actually hated talking about anything other than chess but the highlight of the show was the one-minute chess match he played against WITT, then the city's best player as well as a member of the Canadian Olympic chess team.
Fischer was -- naturally -- confident. He'd already played two exhibition games -- one in which he faced 56 people at once, beating them all, the other where he took on 10 players with clocks. They were better players but Fischer completed his 40 moves in under two hours, winning every game.
He could be forgiven for thinking he had another easy ride ahead. WITT, a Hungarian émigré, was unprepossessing -- an affable, smiling man who earned his living as a television repairman, not particularly tall, a little on the pudgy side.
"But Les was one of the speediest players I have ever seen," recalled Denis ALLAN, an assistant Crown attorney in Hamilton who was a young chess player at the time. "Not only could he think fast, but the speed with which he could move his hands was incredible. Bobby was not happy about losing. He made that clear."
Much later that night everybody got together at the Boulevard Club, where chess was played seven days a week, and Fischer and WITT faced off for about a dozen five-minute games.
"Bobby cleaned him out," ALLAN recalled. "Leslie won maybe one, but even one game is pretty good. Bobby Fischer was a genius."
But WITT was pretty darn good as well: a four-time Montreal chess champion, three-time winner of the Montreal Closed Championship, winner of the Quebec Provincial Championship, the Ontario Provincial Championship and, in 1962, the Canadian Open Chess Championship, held that year in Ottawa, with a perfect score of 9-0.
He was a member of the Canadian chess Olympic team at the 1964 Olympiad held in Tel Aviv, the 1966 Olympiad in Havana and the 1970 event in Germany.
"I remember the Tel Aviv Olympiad because it was the first time the Canadian team made the A group -- the top two teams," said Zvonko VRANESIC, a University of Toronto professor who often played WITT. In the '60s he and WITT were vying for the country's top spot.
"They were the two superstars," said Toronto Star chess columnist Lawrence DAY. "It was a great rivalry."
Both men were representing Canada when Cuban leader Fidel Castro, a big chess fan, pulled out all the stops for the Olympiad in Havana -- putting them up in the best hotel, even opening the event himself playing an exhibition match with the ubiquitous Fischer. Castro presented each player with a gorgeous wooden chess set, in a splendid carved box.
In 1969, WITT won a Brilliancy Prize in the Canadian Closed tournament. That same year he was named an International Master, which is one rank below Grand Master.
Laszlo WITT was born in Budapest, where chess is respected and popular, and the best chess players accorded the accolades reserved for hockey players in North America. He began playing the game at age 8 and tournaments when 15. By 17, he was the premier player for the Hungarian junior national team.
He was in Vienna for a tournament during the three weeks in October and November of 1956 of the Hungarian Revolution. His wife, Viola, and 4½-year-old daughter, Sylvia, had not been permitted to accompany him to the tournament. "We were collateral," said Sylvia SANKEY, now a stage manager who lives in Winnipeg.
Jews who had pretended to be Christians since the war when most of the family's male relatives -- including WITT's father -- were taken to Auschwitz concentration camp where they perished, they quickly decided to flee the country. Mother and daughter crossed the border to Austria to the sounds of Russians shooting on one side and Germans on the other. For three weeks they had hid out in farmhouses and fields.
They were taken to refugee camp outside Vienna where they were eventually reunited with WITT. They left for Italy and the ocean voyage to Halifax, where one of WITT's six sisters lived, moving to Montreal in 1957.
They lived in a walk-up on the Main in the heart of the émigré chess-playing community.
SANKEY remembers them always sitting at her parents' kitchen table playing chess with her father, all men, all in their 20s and 30s, slapping the button on the top of the clocks.
She and her mother never did really learn to play the game, but SANKEY grasped quickly that she had to be "quiet, quiet, quiet" so her father and his Friends could play. "I would read or go and watch television in the other room. It was just a part of life, coming home to see who ever happened to be in the kitchen playing chess with daddy. It was the norm," she said.
And yet by the time the family all moved to Toronto in the late '70s, WITT had all but retreated from the chess scene. In Toronto and Montreal it was no longer dominated by the émigré master a new generation of home-grown talent had emerged under their tutelage.
Current top-rated Canadian Kevin SPRAGGETT was moving up fast. "He beat WITT in 1979 for the Montreal championship and that was the changing of the guard," said DAY.
WITT was a very private man who simply slipped out of the world of chess. Few questioned it -- chess had become an increasingly young person's game.
"When you've played the game at such a high level, climbing down is difficult," VRANESIC said. "People just quit instead. I think that's what probably happened in this case."
WITT took up painting and backgammon in the '80s and in the last few years frequently went to Casino Rama for poker games.
Before he died at 72 on December 27, his daughter found his easel and paints in the Scarborough townhouse he had shared with a young couple -- as well as the chess set from Havana.
"You know it was kind of sad," said ALLAN, the lawyer. " WITT's death was mentioned on an international chess chat room and it got no comments. I guess people just don't know him anymore."
