Nov-29-17  Nosnibor: Although his overall record in this database is not spectacular he seems to have acquitted himself well with a win over Euwe and draws against Bogojubow, Fine, Spielmann,Gruenfeld,Tartakower, and Maroczy. He also had a fine win against Prins.

  offramp: When I see a name that includes a "van" or a "von" I am always curious where that town is.

Here the town in now named Doesburg, in the east of Holland. It lost its last <h> during the Seven Years War

The town is most famous for the its Doesburg Cake:
"<"In London you have fish and chips, in Doesburg we have Doesburg cake.">

Doesburg Cake is made from molasses, egg yolks, bitter almonds, cream, beer, mace, treacle, bicarbonate of celery, crystallized cherries (or four leeks), two ounces of flour, butter, and lots of capers. I have not tried it myself.
