|Feb-12-10|| ||gauer: It's nice to see an occasional Ottawa Citizen article, even if no longer edited by the above past chess columnist. A recent Alexey Shirov simul story appears here: http://www.ottawacitizen.com/life/G...|
|Mar-09-11|| ||GrahamClayton: In 1997 Hergott played a match against the HIARCS 6.0 computer in Ottawa. Games and commentary can be found here:|
|Oct-23-15|| ||Twocolors: Wow, he was born studying. Must have been a child prodigy.|
|Oct-23-15|| ||perfidious: If not at chess, though a strong player early on.
We first met in the last round of the 1984 Toronto international, a game which ended in a win for Hergott.
We had quite a number of common opponents, besides having met at the board.
|Oct-24-15|| ||TheFocus: He was the head of our college.|
|Mar-28-16|| ||Yopo: D Hergott vs Kudrin, 1988
was beauty and surreal|
