  Benzol: I'm wondering why in the books "Chess Olympiads 1927 - 1968" by Arpad Foldeak and "Modern Chess Miniatures" by Leonard Barden and Wolfgang Heidenfeld the Black player here is listed as Angos?

  whiteshark: <Benzol> It's one and the same person, but with two ways of writings.

Olimpbase give him as Greek player Aggos

I think he later emigrates to the US and changed his name to Angos Alexander

I have a book written by Dr. Alex Angos --> <Endgame artillery>, 109p, Thinkers' Press (1982). Its unique !!

In this book he mentioned another Olympic game vs Indian player Bakhtiar from Leipzig 1960, which is identical to the olimbase game vs Bachtiar --> Final C, rd 8

  Benzol: <whiteshark> Thanks. Sounds like "Endgame artillery" is well worth a look at.
