|Jun-15-04|| ||dac1990: hmm... something tells me that one man cannot play for 130 YEARS. |
|Jun-16-04|| ||sneaky pete: <dac1990> but 6 or 7 man called Martin can.
The 1973 game was played by Angel Martin of Barcelona, born in 1953, who learned the game when he was 14 and, while studying medicine, was youth champion of Spain in 1972.
The 1958 Olympiad Martin was 4th board for Colombia, he may have played in Buenos Aires 1955 as well.
Games 8,9,10 and 12 feature most likely Trends editor Andrew Martin. Games 1 and 2 could be the work of the late Major Martin who, consulting with J.Minchin, on September 6, 1871, in London, playing black, drew a Steinitzgambit against none other than Steinitz himself.
That leaves us with Toronto 1933, New Zealand 1987 and Australia 1999,
probably 2, maybe 3 different players.
Other kibitzers may provide information about them.

|Jan-25-05|| ||DanielBryant: #19 should be Andrew Martin. |
