|Jun-14-06|| ||PhilFeeley: Here's a game that should be in this collection. Kevin Spraggett writes of it that Piasetski was offered a bribe by Ghiorghu the night before the game to throw it (http://www.kevinspraggett.com/anecd...). The bribe was only $5, but Leon wouldn't have taken it anyway, and went on to win this:|

PIASETSKI, Leon D.
|Dec-03-11|| ||lentil: <The bribe was only $5> Hah! This lowball offer implies that Gheorgiu (probably rated 200+ points higher at the time) had no doubt that he would win, but just wanted to avoid the effort. I hope leon took the fiver and then ignored the agreement. What's Georghiu to do? Complain to the TD? (p.s. the link is broken)|

|May-01-13|| ||wordfunph: "A well-played chess game is like a pas-de-deux in ballet - two performers executing graceful, artistic maneuvers to a brilliant tempo."|
- IM Leon Piasetski
|May-01-13|| ||DoctorD: A pas-de-deux in ballet is cooperative; a chess game is not. Sounds like he is describing a helpmate, not a game of chess.|
|Oct-03-13|| ||PhilFeeley: <lentil: (p.s. the link is broken)> Yes, Kevin's blog is now on Wordpress. Just Google it and you'll get there.|
|Nov-26-15|| ||PhilFeeley: Anyone know why Leon didn't play the World Seniors this year?|
|Oct-31-17|| ||PhilFeeley: Playing with Kevin Spraggett at the 11th Figueira da Foz International Chess Festival in the Sweet Atlantic Hotel, Figueira da Foz, Portugal.|
