Kibitzer's Corner
Jun-10-08  Karpova: This might be Janis Fride who was born in Riga, Latvia (birthday: 1906.12.25). He used the pseudonym "Defrijs".

  Sneaky: I suppose it could also be the same Fride who drew against Alekhine, Alekhine vs Fride, 1935.

Janis Fride also accompanied Vladimir Petrov to the 1941 USSR championship semifinal in Rostov on Don, along with Alexander Koblents. It was Janis Fride who saved a record of many of Petrovs' games, which later comprised the raw material used by his son to publish a biography of Vladimirs Petrovs:

Andris Fride <Vladimirs Petrovs: A Chessplayer's Story - From Greatness to the Gulags>, Caissa Editions, 2004.
