Kibitzer's Corner
Dec-06-22  Ninas Husband: Thank you to whomever added a games collection for the 1977 US Championship.

  HeMateMe: Looks like Fed got 'mentored' here.
Dec-06-22  Ninas Husband: I would be remiss, however, if I failed to point out that there are still some problems with this game collection. Christiansen-Tarjan is listed as being in Round 7, it was in Round 10. Browne-Ghizdavu is listed as being in Round 10, it was in Round 9. Grefe-Ghizdavu is listed as being in Round 11, it was in round 10. And Ghizdavu-Zuckerman from Round 7 is missing entirely. Zuckerman won that game, BTW.

  Pawn and Two: There is a game, Ghizdavu- Zuckerman, U.S.A 1977, won by Zuckerman on Can someone verify if this is their game from the 1977 U.S. Championship?
