Kibitzer's Corner
Jul-01-04  nikolaas: Chris de Ronde
He was born 1912 near Rotterdam (schiedam, to be exact), the Netherlands. He was also one or two times champion of that city. In 1939 he went to the olympiad in Buenos Aires, because many other players didn't want to go. His results were better than expected: 8,5 out of 14. After this olympiad he disappeared from the chessworld. He played a strong tournament in which he scored just 1 out of 12. After that he gave up chess for good. It's a pity. Maybe he could have produced more things like De Ronde vs Kamstra, 1938. Most likely, de Ronde died in Buenos Aires in ca.1992
