  HeMateMe: <birthtimes> Well described! Those blind pigs on the 7th rank were quite hungry in this encounter. I believe they were going our for 'Chinese'.

Mar-12-11  Dionysius: This was a lovely tournament. I went along to watch and there were only about 30 spectators, all sitting in v comfortable chairs, with only velvet ropes separating us from the players. I remember this game particularly because of Smyslov's chivalry. Xie Yun was sitting waiting at the board when Smyslov walked over at the start of the round. Honorably, Xie Yun stood to welcome him and offered her hand. Smyslov, in his late 70's, stooped and half blind, smiled, bowed, took her hand and brushed it with his lips in the old fashioned way. Not a hint of pastiche, just courtesy on both sides. And then they sat down and he beat her.
