Aug-23-05  Resignation Trap: Yugoslavia hosted the first Olimpiad after World War II in Dubrovnik. The host team finished first, and Rabar, with the score of eight wins and two draws, had the best overall percentage of the event.
Sep-27-07  pawnofdoom: Player of the Day!
Happy Birthday Rabar! Today's almost over and I'm surprised no one else kitibtzed

An impressive game by him that got the game of the day. Too bad he wasn't the one who won it

Sep-27-10  YoungEd: Perhaps the strongest player with a palindromic name?
Sep-27-10  TheTamale: <YoungEd>: I always thought Level 12 was the strongest player with a palindromic name, but then I realized the 12 at the end disqualifies it.

<Resignation Trap>,
Rabar won the Gold Medal for the best score on Board 4. Larry Evans also scored 90%, but did not play as many games as Rabar.
