Happy birthday to both masters!

May-27-10  wordfunph: sidelights of this Olympiad game..

1958 Munich Chess Olympiad: In Spain versus USA match, Toran won against Bisguier on the third board. As soon as the American master resigned Toran said with a smile: "I am so happy, it's a nice present for my birthday!". "It's all right" said his opponent politely - "today happens to be my birthday too"...

Feb-02-13  jerseybob: Bisguier loves to play Qe2 gainst the Lopez, even against the annoying Berlin defense he plays so often as black. White's troubles here stem from 10.Bxc6 and it's flukey follow-up 11.d5!? 10.Bd3 seems better(10.Ba4?,Nxd4), and if 10..Nb4 11.Bb1 followed by a3.
