Kibitzer's Corner
Apr-16-09  algol: I read this interesting anecdote by Alkinoos (on the blog chess-problems-gr):

Allow me, (fourteen years after his passing) to reveal a private conversation I had with him, in order to describe the wonderful mind of Triantafyllos Siaperas. I had organized a problem solving contest (Patras, 05/02/1984) and he called me (long distance) to learn what had happened in order to write a comment in his newspaper chess column. He said (always politely): «Will you please tell me the positions of the problems?» «Should I use algebraic or Forsythe notation?» I asked naively. «You may use whatever you prefer», he said.
«2 capital-K 4 capital-Q slash 8 slash 2 capital-S 5 slash 1 k 6…» I started to say. He interrupted.
«Ah! The two-mover of Kossolapov from Novosty 1963. Nice selection! Please tell me the next.» I was speechless. Twenty four years have passed and still I cannot believe it!

Triantafyllos Siaperas was really great.
