Born 6th June 1940
Estonian champion in 1968.
Jun-06-07  Avarus: It's a strange sight to see a person you've met as the player of the day. It was back in the days I was playing actively in tournaments, at least then Hermlin appeared as a spontaneous instructor to either comment on a game or show a great example to teach some nuance.

I had no idea he played Tal, Keres and the likes in 60's
