"Care for A Game?"
by Bob Brooking


<"As a young man of 22, Severin Woinarski appeared from nowhere to finish 2nd to Crakanthorp by a mere half-point in the 1926 Australian Championship. He believed that in chess one should seek, not correctness, but chances, and his vigorous style produced sparkling games during a few years of competitive play.

  MissScarlett: My guess is that he appeared from Poland.

His name certainly sounds Polish: <Severin Howard Zichy Woinarski>.

Possibly you or Tabanus or Stonehenge might find him in the ancestry sites you use. I believe Tabanus has a paid service on one or more of these sites?

  MissScarlett: It's possible that in later years he became a Holocaust survivor, on the basis that you tend to get more of what you pay for.

<MissScarlett> bad news!

<Hozza> has force fed you your own avatar back, an eerily similar ploy to that dramatized in the terrifying horror film "The Revenge of Hozza."
