RABINOVICH, Ilya L.
|Apr-20-06|| ||offramp: I like this bit in the bio: "Primarily a positional player he perished in the siege of Leningrad in 1942."|
Did the tactical players survive?
|Apr-20-06|| ||dbquintillion: <offramp> good question. you'd think that a long, slow squeeze like the siege of leningrad would be precisely the sort of thing a positional player would be prepared for. perhaps the tactical players sacced some of their colleagues to maneuver their way out.|
