Kibitzer's Corner
Feb-10-14  Rodrigo Delgado: Hello, im Alberto´s Niece. He indeed won the silver medal in the 1974 Olympiads, he is in the hall of fame of my country for that. He is schizophrenic, that´s why he stopped playing. He couldn't travel anymore because of his condition. I was searching for him on the internet and i found this discussion.

If you would like some more information about him, i will be pleased to give it. Its such a shame he didn't achieved more, he is truly a genius. He should be remembered by the international chess community. My mail is

Feb-11-14  thomastonk: <Rodrigo Delgado> I've added his Olympiad participations to his biography, and I will submit 4 games he played against renowned opposition.
