Kibitzer's Corner
Feb-17-04  Taidanii: Okay, who is this player? He beat Alekhine AND drew him. Someone that Alekihine didnt beat from that time should surely have more information.
Feb-17-04  WMD: He's Juan Manuel Fuentes, strong enough to have played for the Spanish national team. His victory over Alekhine was from a simultaneous display, and was avenged a few days later during a similar event.
