  FSR: 11.Ba5! is an unusual queen trap that must have shocked Dlugy.
Nov-13-17  tjipa: Yo, a nice queen trap indeed! I wonder how Karklins is doing these days. I just googled out of curiosity and learned that his legendary father has recently passed away at the age of 102.

  FSR: tjipa - not great. He is legally blind and impoverished. But he's still playing chess.
Nov-14-17  Howard: Didn't I see him playing at the Chicago Open 2-3 years ago?

  FSR: Howard - quite possibly. If you go to the USCF website, you can see what tournaments he's played in.
