Remembering Michael Uriely


Michael Uriely was a very talented chess player who enjoyed great success in his short career and made many friends along the way. Michael passed away in August 2015 aged nine in the middle of the Mindsports Olympiad after a severe asthma attack.


Earlier this year, his parents Roy and Ayelet supported a tournament in celebration of his life which was held at Westminster Under School which he attended. Funds were raised in support of the family’s chosen charity, Asthma UK, you can donate here.


With the support of an anonymous donor, the Super Rapidplay at the London Chess Classic 2016 is in memory of Michael and competitors who knew him are welcome to comment in the remembrance book on display in the foyer.
