  IMlday: Excellent, except it wasn't a postal game, it was board one in an Ottawa-Brockville team match. Kalotay was quite strong. He played on the Canadian Olympic team at Havana, 1966.

  IMlday: compare Larsen vs Spassky, 1964 played a few months earlier.
Bohatirchuk's chess always had a sense of humour!

  Calli: <IMlday> You can click the "suggest your correction" link below the kibitz button to improve the info for the game. Do you remember Kalotay's first name? That would be nice to have in the DB.

  IMlday: OK, thanks! I have found the 'suggest correction' button. His first name was Andrew. After UoT IBM captured him, moved him to New Jersey. I met him first in 1960, then 20 years later as a spectator at a NY tournament. His tournament playing career was brief.
