  diagonal: Three times National Champion and three times participant at the Chess Olympiad for Switzerland between 1982 and 1996: <Hansjürg Känel>, always an amateur player, is still a regular and successful competitor at national / local Open Festivals, winning today the <Swiss Chess Open> (140 years jubilee of the Schachgesellschaft Luzern) at Kriens near Lucerne, ahead of GM Vorotnikov - time for a first kibitz note of Känel at chessgames:


Aug-09-18  Paint My Dragon: His victory at the Volksbank Open in Bern in 1996 was a big surprise. Switzerland is famous for its many large Open events, but no-one could recall a Swiss national ever winning one, at least in recent times. He finished ahead of a number of GMs, including Tukmakov, Mikhalchishin, Suetin, and Andrei Sokolov, a former world number 3.
