  offramp: Rarely won a major event.
Sep-02-07  bravado1: I think he died much later, around 2004. No big deal, but he wouldn't have liked his life having been shortened by mere 20 years, I believe.

  whiteshark: player of the Day: Kazimierz Plater
(* 3 March 1915 † 30 April 2004)


1) Thus <bravado1> was correct! 2) Vilnius (Wilno) was part of the Russian Empire when he was born and is today the capital of Lithuania.
