  Peligroso Patzer: From P Limbos vs H Bogart, 1951:

< moronevich: Bogart and Dr.Paul Limbos of the Institute for tropical diseases in Antwerp, played multiple games, invariably won of course by Limbos (a master level player acoording to standards of that era), nonwithstanding the fact that Hepburn tried to get him drunk on whisky so that he would loose.She was unaware apparently of the fact that belgians tend to live in a bourgondian style so that they only got increasingly frustrated in their vain efforts to destabilise their opponent.These facts were told to me by dr.Limbos himself, both of us being regular visitors of the chess club in the Billard Palace in Antwerp, Belgium. >

  Phony Benoni: <TheFocus> For starters,you can throw in Josef Martin Boey, Arthur Dunkelblum, and Paul Devos.

I would have trouble considering Turover a Belgian player. Akiba Rubinstein probably played more chess as a resident of Beligum than he did.
