Kibitzer's Corner
Nov-09-06  Resignation Trap: The Romanian master, Stefan Szabo was born December 9, 1911 in Oradea and died October 23, 1954 in Arad.

Laszlo Szabo had this to say in <<My Best Games of Chess>> on Hastings 1954/55:

"'An excellent performance by a dead man', remarked a London friend of mine. Well, it turned out that many people believed me dead and buried in England. When Stefan Szabo died, the press agencies announced me dead by mistake. The outstanding English chess player, Conel Hugh O'Donel Alexander , had already written my obituary for his column, when I turned up in Hastings. I was not sorry that the obituary was unpublished, but I still think I should have asked Alexander to give me the proof. It must be terribly interesting to read how people think of one after one's death."
