  zydeco: Who was this guy? He played in the finals of the Soviet Championship once and only once, finished very respectably in the middle of the pack, beating Tal, Tolush, and Simagin, and apparently was never heard from again. Does anybody know anything about him?
Jun-12-16  siggemannen: Yes, what happened with this guy?
