Jan-07-05  Flo: <yoozum> For which country did Dizdarevich play in the olympiad against Shirov?
Premium Chessgames Member
  offramp: He is player of the day, today. I only really remember him for E Dizdarevic vs Miles, 1985. I was at a tournament in Avoine, France in 1985, and I was talking to the only other English contestants, Glenn Flear and Anthony Cornelius Kosten. They were talking about how they were going to play Emir Dizdarevic and Kosten showed me and Flear this game. They both said they were going to play the same line against him to see if they could pull it off again.
