  GrahamClayton: Vidmar's best performance was =6th/20 at Karlovy Vary-Marianske Lazne. Vidmar was leading the tournament at the halfway stage, but he contracted a very nasty facial inflammation that meant he had to be treated at the local hospital. This would have definitely affected his performance in the second half of the tournament.

R.I.P. master Vidmar.

Dec-16-08  slomarko: Vidmar was a good player, he played against people like Capablanca, Alekhine, Rubinstein.... it is a real shame he only gets 1 page of kibitzing.

  brankat: <slomarko> You may be referring to Dr.Milan Vidmar, the father of "Jr" above. This one was rated amongst the top 5 between about 1911 to about 1931!

Milan Vidmar

Dec-16-08  slomarko: ooops wrong Milan Vidmar. thanks.
Premium Chessgames Member
  brankat: I meant top 6, or so :-)

Between San Sebastian 1911 and Bled, 1931.
