|Mar-28-05|| ||chessgames.com: We cleaned up this player record to combine the serveral different "H Pfleger" records. Some kibitzing got lost, but nothing terribly important, sorry about that. |
|Mar-28-05|| ||cu8sfan: Thanks, <chessgames.com>. That was quick! How come the header still says that there are only 81 games of him in the database? |
|Mar-28-05|| ||chessgames.com: The header gets recalculated once per day. |
|Aug-06-06|| ||BIDMONFA: Helmut Pfleger|
|Nov-26-06|| ||cu8sfan: He's a very nice man. I met him at the Lichthof Chess Champions (2006) and he was kind enough to sign his book of the 1986 World Championship.|
|Apr-17-07|| ||bauernfresser: On those rare occasions, when chess makes it to German TV, Helmut Pfleger will unavoidably be the one who presents it, assisted by Vlastimil Hort.
Over-exposure aside, he seems to be a decent guy, who has a lot of interesting views on life and chess. He is a medical doctor by profession.|

|Aug-06-07|| ||Halldor: He is a chess columnist for Die Zeit, link: http://www.zeit.de/leben/spielen/in...
(click on 'Schach'). Fine columns with puzzles, but the diagrams disappear in older columns.|
|Aug-06-08|| ||rjfsworstnightmare: I haven't checked the Germans' database, but the Russians cite 517 games from 1957: 159 wins, 253 draws and 105 losses for a 55.2%; an IGM with a minus score lifetime seems implausible. They (he?) put him in the top 100 from 1964 to 1979 and rank him 355th lifetime historically.|
|Aug-06-08|| ||rjfsworstnightmare: And then I forget to say, 'Happpy Birthday!' Duh! Perhaps he, his family or friends can update his record further...|
|Aug-06-09|| ||Winter: Glücklicher Geburtstag!|
|Aug-06-09|| ||wordfunph: Happy Birthday GM Pfleger!|

Pfleger was one of the players who took part in the British TV series 'The Master Game', which was broadcast around 30 or so years ago.
After the players played the game, they would record their thought and comments, which were replayed along with the moves.

In the above work, there is a chapter devoted to the first three matches between Karpov and Kasparov, which offers great insight into the protagonists.
