Kibitzer's Corner
Dec-10-12  thomastonk: In occasion of his 130th birthday, I have collected some facts about him.

G.W.J. Zittersteyn was a strong player from the Dutch chess club Discendo Discimus (D.D.), The Hague. He run a chess column in "Het Vaderland" from 1920 until 1932. In 1938 he became chairman of the Dutch chess federation K.N.S.B. This picture has been published at this occasion. He held this position until 1948, with a break during 1943-45, when Euwe was chair of the "Neschabo". When he died on April 13th, 1956 he was honourary chairman of D.D. and member of the Order of Orange-Nassau.

Several of his games survived, e.g. those from group B of the Dutch championship 1921. Also a draw with RĂ©ti from a simultaneous exhibition in 1919 is available.

Happy birthday, Mr Zittersteyn!
