Kibitzer's Corner
Jul-09-17  diagonal: Otto Marthaler, from Raperswil-Jona in Switzerland won the first edition of the annual <Reggio Emilia tournament series> in 1958/59, the initiator and soul of this traditional international invitation tournament, Enrico Paoli, finished fourth then (there were two earlier Prequels won by Canal and Czerniak respectively).

Anish Giri won ahead of joint 2.-4. Moro, Naka, and Fab the 54th and last edition in 2011/12.

The World Chess Champions Kasparov, Spassky, and Smyslov all played at Reggio but did not win! :)
