  offramp: Born in 1917. Middle name Sergeevitch.
Unusual in that he is represented by 18 games over 18 years!
Nov-17-09  Red October: was he the founder of <Saigin Kick> ?

or maybe he acted in <Miss Saigin> ?

- Vladimir Saigin (after losing to 17-year-old Tal in a qualifying match for the master title in 1954)
