  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.
