Kibitzer's Corner
Dec-18-07  sushijunkie: Wasn't this guy a Herculoid?
Dec-18-07  DukeAlba: I think so:

I guess he needed a career change... He had an argument with Tara and decided he needed to see other people and try new things like playing chess...

Dec-18-07  porgue: aww he died the day before his birthday

that would suck

Dec-18-07  DukeAlba: Yeah that does suck...

  whiteshark: He didn't care a straw.
May-09-19  Nosnibor: No games here from the 1957 and 1965 Swedish Championships where he won the title.However with a win against Stahlberg and draws with Keres, Spassky and other elite players he was without doubt a strong player.
