Kibitzer's Corner
Jan-12-17  machuelo: Josť R. Florido was a Cuban chess player. In 1956 when he was among the best 10 masters of Cuba he played in Havana against the then unknown Bobby Fischer and lost. This was the first important win for the young Fischer. Florido was a good tactician and also a good blitz player. At least twice, 1951 and 1951 he participated in the US Open with good results.
