Apr-20-09  waustad: The automatic translation is, as usual rather strange stuff. I have to like somebody with a passion for blitz chess though.

Oct-16-16  Christoforus Polacco: I remember ending game from Polish Championship - Jozef Gromek versus Kazimierz Makarczyk (Makarczyk with Polish team was golden medalist Chess Olympiad at Hamburg 1930 ). Gromek played ending with huge material advantage but it was only draw. He had ''bad'' bishop. Funny, because Gromek could avoid such ending :) A some more experienced Makarczyk very gladly strove to such comfortable for him endgame....
