Kibitzer's Corner
Feb-09-04  SamusAran: If you want to see Efimov get his butt kicked, look at Efimov vs Bronstein (at the top of the page)
Mar-15-05  Karpova: <>

There's an italian GM called Igor Efimov (born in 1960).

The first three games were probably not played by the italian GM and the first to games are identical.

Mar-15-05  Karpova: sorry, first two games of course
