ONCE UPON or The Only Encounter
Compiled by vonKrolock
--*--

How many frustrated encounters, contemporaries who never played a single game... If there was not these sole encounters, the same could be said about the players featured here, then the games are very precious without other qualities - even if they are almost always very good games too. (PS. I included my only game vs then future GM E Matsuura just for register and personal statement.)
