Jan-09-05  Ultra: Mr Peterson does not fare well at all when his opposite at the board is the Magician from Riga.


Feb-28-05  bumpmobile: <Ultra>- yes, but look how well he fared against Mr. Miller in D Miller vs A Peterson, 1959

It's Petersons with an 's'. And he drew with Tal in the 1964 Soviet championship. Anyone playing at that level - or drawing with Tal - is de facto a strong player.

<mate2900s> - <wow what was this a simul > Very funny. Despite the lack of a question mark, your post is roughly shaped like a question. Not a very clever one, however.
