  Chessical: Diez del Corral became the second ever Spanish player to become a grandmaster (the first being the child-prodigy Arturo Pomar-Salamanca).

He played for Spain in seven Olympiads, and nine times in the Clare Benedict tournaments scoring 58% in each. He was also a strong blitz player.

He retired from competitive chess in 1986. I believe that his first international tournament game was

Ivkov vs J Diez del Corral, 1955

and his last was against the same opponent

Ivkov vs J Diez del Corral, 1983

He also regularly wrote articles and composed studies, despite the demands of his professional life as a lawyer specialising in property law.
