Nov-10-06  WarmasterKron: Kolty's opponent would later go on to play a simul of his own, in which he drew every game. It's said he was Furst among equals.


I'll get my coat.

Dec-28-08  YoungEd: I wonder if this is the same E.A. Furst who self-published a series of "Chess Artistry" books. They were essentially puzzle books; I had a couple, and they weren't bad.
