  Jonathan Sarfati: Only one game from the 1992 NZ Champs he won very convincingly?
Premium Chessgames Member
  Benzol: <Jonathan> I count 3 games with Peter Stuart, Ben Martin and Nigel Metge being the opponents. Have I got it wrong?

A major competitor was Julius Breyer.

  perfidious: Got to play Dreyer once, at the 1989 Monadnock Marathon, in Jaffrey, New Hampshire. Believe he played an Old Indian and I got a very good position, but faltered and he handed me my only loss of the event, in which I finished equal first with 8.5 points from twelve games. Never saw him before or after that tourney--guess it is apparent why now!

  TheFocus: That Old Indian can be tricky. I never lost with it, postal or OTB.
