  Gypsy: <whiteshark> Great picture.

Btw, that must be Kurt Richter, not Emil -- Emil did not play in Podebrady, 1936.

Podebrady, 1936 must have been a pretty strong tournament: 1.Flohr (+9) 2.Alekhine (+8) 3.Foltys (+5) 4-5.Stahlberg and Pirc (+4) 6.Eliskases(+2) ...

Mar-17-08  Resignation Trap: Another photo from Podebrady 1936. This one has Pirc and Frydman, but not Fazekas: .

  Fusilli: One of the many European masters that played the Buenos Aires Olympiad in 1939 and remained in Argentina after the outbreak of World War II. Needless to say, the most prominent of these was the great Miguel Najdorf.
