  zydeco: Foguelman's a tough player. Playing over some of his games from the early '60s, I picture him as sort of a gnarled club player, with some tricky pet lines (especially in the Caro-Kann), good tactical vision, and an ability to set traps -- basically a minor master but able to mix it up with the world's elite.
