|Dec-31-05|| ||Resignation Trap: In this tournament, Jan Hein Donner finished first with a devastating score of 11/13. The World Champion Petrosian ended up in a tie for second place with Larry Melvyn Evans , both scoring 10.|
Petrosian wrote "I was not even especially upset after my draw with the 65-year-old Calapso, a player who, frankly speaking, is not of international standard."
"'How did you contrive only to draw with him?' exclaimed Dragoljub Janosevic . 'I'll show you how to play against outsiders.'"
"A day later the Calapso Remo vs Janosevic, 1967 encounter took place. By the 20th move Black had already lost his entire queenside, and soon the Yugoslav grandmaster had to admit defeat...."

Petrosian took the draw against the outsider, and then beat Janosevic!

And you're right, all that you quoted is in there. I've seen it before.
<Bragging seldom pays, even when you find an opponent named "Colapso".>
I'd thought of that too, although unfortunately his name is probably pronounced Kollop-so, rather than Collapse-So.
