Kibitzer's Corner
Feb-17-09  whiteshark: Szabo started the Moscow tournament with 3/5 (+1 =4). His victory over Keres was played in round 2.

Thereafter his concentration for chess went astray due to the political situation / Soviet Military Intervention in Hungary.

Finally he finished 11th with +1 =10 -4.

Feb-17-09  laskereshevsky: So, this mean that tournament was played after the October-November anti sovietic revolution in Hungary?

If yes, thats mean Lacika dont reacted PROUDLY against the bolscevics as the National Water polo team did it, in the 1956 Melbourne Olympic games....


Feb-17-09  whiteshark: <laskereshevsky> The Alekhine Memorial tournament started October 7th and Szabo was in Moscow(!). Szabo said rumours, uncertainties and discussions about the development lead to a lack of preparation etc. Sounds quite reasonable to me.
Feb-17-09  laskereshevsky: <whiteshark> thanks,

I can immagine how many unclear where the <,,,rumours, uncertainties and discussions....>!!

I personally heard a true story by a foreign person who was in Soviet Union during the 1989 facts...

its a little long, sooner or later i will post it here....
