|Jul-28-04|| ||chessgames.com: We just added a few Pleci games to our collection including the one mentioned above, I Pleci vs L Endzelins, 1939. Enjoy. |
|Dec-29-05|| ||lopium: Incredible funny story from his biography!! ahahahzz!!!!!!|
|May-09-06|| ||BIDMONFA: Isaias Pleci
|May-09-06|| ||gmgomes: About about Pleci x Najdorf. Ain´t the game available?|
|May-09-06|| ||EmperorAtahualpa: I can't find the PGN of the Pleci vs. Najdorf game anywhere else on Internet either:|
I only found these two links:
What a pity!
|May-09-06|| ||pawn to QB4: I've seen an account somewhere of the Pleci-Najdorf shambles. Alekhine asked Sir George Thomas "what would be the decision if that happened in England?" and got the reply "it wouldn't have happened in England!" (standards have declined over here since). Najdorf's comment on the decision he'd lost: "I wouldn't have wanted another result, playing, as we are, in Poland".|

Game Collection: Liege 1930
|May-01-09|| ||Augalv: Pleci was nicknamed the "Tank". He did not know a lot about theory, but he was an outstanding player in Argentina for many years.
His secret, according to Foguelman, was his skill at simplifying the game at the right time to reach a good ending position.|

Well, Pleci would have done a lot better, but none of his opponents got into time trouble.
|Oct-27-10|| ||Fusilli: Just based on personality and future actions by Najdorf, I tend not to believe the Najdorf's version of the story. But that's just my guess.|
If memory serves, when Pleci died Najdorf was running a weekly chess column in Clarin newspaper and wrote a nice tribute to Pleci (of course, dedicating the column to one of Pleci's games).
