  perfidious: A number of the youngsters in this event would go on to make their mark, some in the days leading up to the Great War, while others' time in the sun would only come after that conflagration had passed.

  HeMateMe: Helluva 'B' tournament line up!
Jun-25-21  Stolzenberg: <perfidious> Indeed Aron Nimzowitsch and Savielly Tartakower were just 20 years old and at the beginning of a great chess career. Instead Rudolf Swiderski committed suicide 2 years later, just 30 years old.
