Kibitzer's Corner
Aug-01-17  Howard: Inside Chess stated that Wolff missed chances to gain a significant position in this game, but I don't recall exactly where.

Incidentally, Wolff got off to a good start in this interzonal, achieving a score of +2 at one point. But...he slipped up in the later rounds.

Anyone know what he's doing nowadays ?
