  Karpova: From Hans Ree's "Fenny Heemskerk, Almost Kidnapped in Moscow", June 2007: http://www.chesscafe.com/text/hans1...

Hans Ree: <It was a creditable result which would be far surpassed two years later in the Candidates tournament of 1952, again in Moscow. The winner of that tournament would play a match for the World Championship against Rudenko, the winner of Moscow 1949/1950.

This time Fenny Heemskerk had a second, the Dutch master Lodewijk Prins. Having played in the men's interzonal in Salstj÷baden, he arrived in Moscow a few days late, lamenting as soon as he stepped off the train about a fold in his trousers, an un-ironed shirt or similar matters. Fenny worried. Was this the man who was supposed to assist her, or should she mother him during the next weeks as an additional burden to her, she thought. But she was wrong, as Prins proved to be an excellent assistant.

She played well in that tournament, so well that the Russians got worried and thought of a way to stop her. As Fenny once told me, one day suddenly some paramedics entered her hotel room, telling her that they had heard that she might have caught a cold, but that it could be much more serious, one never knew and one shouldn't take any risk with a distinguished foreign guest. Fenny would have to be brought to a hospital at once, where the best Russian doctors would take care of her. Of course they couldn't say on what day she would be dismissed from the hospital, that would be for the doctors to decide.

Luckily Prins was also present in the hotel room and he proved his worth as a second. Like a true knight he made it clear that Fenny would only be taken away over his dead body. The attempt of kidnapping her did not succeed. At the end she shared second place with the Russian Olga Ignatieva. First place was for Elizaveta Bykova, who would go on to win the match against Rudenko and become world champion.>
