Oct-02-05  atripodi: With the affinity many posters on this page have for flank opening specialists like Suttles, I'm surprised no one has posted here. Anyone have any information about him or know any interesting games? Here are a couple: J Hickl vs Blatny, 1996
J Hickl vs A Kuligowski, 1986
Jul-10-07  Atking: <atripodi:> Yes very impressive games. I don't know why this player doesn't appear more in international scene.
