|Dec-19-11|| ||bronkenstein: Happy late B-day Jan , I just `discovered` it by checking Chessvibes.|
To cover some of my shame - a quote from your new biography by Jon Kuipers:
<He's seen as one of the last romantics in the chess world. At the board the player from Amsterdam was a brilliant strategist. He dominated chess in The Netherlands so much, that he became synonym for it, and thus a worthy successor of former World Champion Max Euwe. Away from the board, he was a pleasant bon-vivant who enjoyed life to the max.> , from http://chessvibes.com/reports/jan-t...
<Remember, life starts at 66.> ... and ends in 666?

Can this be true?
Some people don't seem to know who anyone is.
