  paulalbert: As I remember it, it did get reasonable attention in chess publications when it was played in 2003, particularly Judit Polgar's spectacular sacrificial attack winning against Berkes.

  wordfunph: "About my brother Zoltan, for instance, who just as in Roquebrune was tortured by sore eyes and whose bad result can largely be blamed on this handicap. Sometimes he could not even see half the board."
