Jan-03-13  thomastonk: Happy birthday, Mr Spanjaard!

There is none of his early games in the database, though he was already successful then. E.g., the V.A.S. organised at Easter 1928 a 4-player event with Edgar Colle, Salo Landau, Petrus Van Hoorn and a 19 years old Spanjaard. He won this event with 2.5 points from 3 games.

Here is his win against Colle.

[Event "Easter tourney of the V.A.S."]
[Site "Amsterdam"]
[Date "1928.04.??"]
[Round "?"]
[White "Spanjaard, Eduard"]
[Black "Colle, Edgard"]
[Result "1-0"]
[ECO "E43"]
[PlyCount "75"]
