Kibitzer's Corner
Jun-01-03  Ribeiro: Actually, his name was Luis Palau. He was very important for chess in Argentina (wrote books, was the editor of the important "Ajedrez" magazine etc.).

  Gregor Samsa Mendel: I have a couple of books by Palau, one on opening traps and one on combinational themes. My father purchased them when he was a teenager growing up in Buenos Aires.
Oct-07-13  Karpova: On page 301, the October 1926 'Neue Wiener Schachzeitung' reports that L Palau won the 2nd South America Championship ahead of Grau, Reca and so forth.

  offramp: He should have invented a variation of the Rice Gambit.

  perfidious: Blackburne would have just called him 'Tapioca'.
