  Benzol: Is this Paulino Frydman?
Aug-21-06  Mibelz: In September 1939, when WW II was broke out, Frydman like many other participants of the 8th Chess Olympiad (Najdorf, Stahlberg, Eliskases, Michel, Engels, Becker, Reinhardt, Pelikan, Skalička, Luckis, Feigins, Raud, Czerniak, Rauch, Winz, Gromer, Sulik, Seitz, de Ronde, Kleinstein, Sonja Graf, etc.) had decided to stay permanently in Argentina.
Aug-24-06  Mibelz: <Benzol> Paulin Frydman had modified his first name to Paulino in Argentina, e.g. Mieczysław to Miguel Najdorf, Markas to Marcos Luckis, Paul to Pablo Michel, Heinrich to Enrico Reinhardt, Jiř to Jorge Pelikan, Franciszek to Frank Sulik, etc. By the way, Sulik moved from Argentina to Australia.

  Benzol: <Mibelz> Thanks for the info. It looks as though you should get yourself put on the list of biographical administrators.
Sep-01-06  Mibelz: <Benzol> Thanks for the suggestion, <It looks as though you should get yourself put on the list of biographical administrators.> but I do not know how to do it.
By the way, several days ago, I sent to a short bio of Paulino Frydman. I have got an answer with thanks but Frydman still has no Chessgames Biography.
Jan-31-07  Caissanist: <Mibelz>: You need only send email to, telling them your interest and qualifications--mostly, you need to be able to write good English and to have reliable sources of information about some players who do not currently have biographies.
Jun-21-07  Karpova: Poor Paulino and Achilles Frydman who became victims of Soltis', Bill Wall's and Koltanowski's tall tales:
Sep-09-07  Karpova: Winter's feature article >Fun> deals with the <running arond naked>-myth also:
Sep-30-08  zooter: I saw a documentary on history channel "The Family that defied hitler" -- apparently, Frydman's brother (a jew in hungary) won a game of chess against a german officer (who had defeated the polish master earlier in cologne).

This victory by the amateur Frydman helped him escape the gas chamber by the german officer who saved him at great risk to himself. They were good friends till the end of the war and played chess regularly.

I wonder if this is true and if yes, a copy of the games would be truly remarkable

  JointheArmy: <zooter> I'd like to see some clips of that on youtube.
