Nov-17-06  BIDMONFA: Gert Ligterink


Jun-21-12  achieve: I never liked him, and obviously not a great following, though a good columnist at times, provided he doesn't blindly follow engine evaluations.

  wordfunph: from IM Willy Hendriks book Move First, Think Later..

<Gert Ligterink relates that he was setting up a small party to celebrate his first IM norm. Hubner passed by, and when he was informed about the occasion, he quickly managed to spoil the festive atmosphere: 'At home I have a dog that cannot play chess. But if I teach him for half a year, he must at least be able to become a master.'>
