Peter Falk (1927 - 2011), Chess Fan
Peter Falk kibitzes with GM Yasser Seirawan
Peter Falk, best known for playing the disheveled Los Angeles detective "Columbo" on television, and less well known for playing chess, has died. He was 83. My mother will be very sad, as she loved Columbo. Edward Winter has posted several pictures of Falk as a chess spectator (including the one above with a young Yasser Seirwan). Obituaries are widely available, including in the New York Times.
