Kibitzer's Corner
Sep-26-04  jsastre48: Puiggros was a cigar puffing Argentinian tactical player who played in Uruguay in the early 1960's and even became the Uruguay chess champion. Always impecably dressed and "peinado a la gomina"!

  Willem Wallekers: Hairdo with brillantine?
Sep-26-04  molinov: something like that.
Sep-26-04  molinov: I am gonna look for some games of Puiggr├│s, see if a can find a win.
Oct-01-04  jsastre48: Indeed hairdo with brillantine. He has very nice wins I think it can be found in other databases.

  Willem Wallekers: I think I know the type from the movie Evita. The crooner who discovered her. Am I right?

  Willem Wallekers: Was Capablanca peinado a la gomina?
Premium Chessgames Member
  technical draw: Yes, Willem, I have seen some pictures of Capablanca with that doo. Capa was always considered "dapper".
