Kibitzer's Corner
Aug-12-05  Resignation Trap: Gerstenfeld (1915-1943) lived in Lvov and won the Polish Championship twice before reaching age 22. In 1939 his region of Poland became part of the USSR, which explains his participation in the 1940 USSR Championship.

The world lost another talented player in 1943 when Gerstenfeld became a victim of Nazi atrocities.

Had Edge lived in another time, he might well have said this about poker players.

  Richard Taylor: Tragic loss: I read the wiki info on him.
Jul-05-14  ughaibu: This bit "he was shot by Nazis during the mass killing of Jewish people in Rostov-on-Don, Russia,[5] in December 1943.[6] Rostov-on-Don was liberated by the Soviet Army on February 14, 1943" doesn't make sense.
