Kibitzer's Corner
May-26-07  Eastfrisian: Deen Hergott is an IM from Canada. He is born in October 1962 in Kitchener, Ontario. Hergott played seven times for Canada in chess olympiades. Because of health problems in the early 2000s he retired from active serious chess. Since then he playes on a lower level.

By profession, he is a mathematician (bachelor degree in 1986), computer programmer, and chess journalist.

Feb-12-10  gauer: It's nice to see an occasional Ottawa Citizen article, even if no longer edited by the above past chess columnist. A recent Alexey Shirov simul story appears here: http://www.ottawacitizen.com/life/G...

  perfidious: If not at chess, though a strong player early on.

We first met in the last round of the 1984 Toronto international, a game which ended in a win for Hergott.

We had quite a number of common opponents, besides having met at the board.
