  profK: John Cornforth, besides setting the simul blindfold record in Australia, was also a joint NOBEL Laureate. An interesting question is how many other national level chess players have won Nobel prizes???

  An Englishman: Good Evening: <profK>, Samuel Beckett (Literature) was a strong player, but not as strong as his friend, the painter Marcel Duchamp, who played on the French national team. And Einstein vs Oppenheimer, 1933 might rank among the more discussed games at CG, with 29 pages of commentary and counting.

  Benzol: Don't think he ever won a Nobel prize but Jacob Bronowski was in the same sort of mould too.
