Kibitzer's Corner
Aug-09-06  Autoreparaturwerkbau: Johannnes? Triple N? Awkward.
Nov-27-07  bystander: <Autoreparaturwerkbau> Triple N is also very uncommon in the Dutch language.
Premium Chessgames Member
  Stonehenge: Nice chap, I met him once. And yes, Johannes is with two n's.
Nov-27-07  Shams: I heard he got his third N norm.
Nov-07-08  Edwin M: After a wrecking illness IM Van Mil is about to depart from this world. His wife WGM Erika Sziva asked you to light a candle for him. Be it in real life or like so (visit link)

Farewell Johannes.

Nov-07-08  jmi: I'm stunned. It's unbelievable how a sudden illness can render a man so helpless so quickly.

My thoughts and prayers are with him, his wife and his children.


Nov-10-08  nescio: Johan van Mil died yesterday, November 9. In Memoriam on
Nov-10-08  SufferingBruin: Deepest sympathies to his family.

Nov-11-08  Karpova:

R.I.P. IM Johannes Antonius Josef van Mil.

Nov-11-08  diagonal: a sad moment, not only for dutch chess, ... just 49 years old, my thoughts are with his family:

rest in peace, Johannes van Mil.

Nov-11-08  Alphastar: I have frequently used the chess book store of him and his wife. I'm a bit shocked.

I wish Erika and the kids all the best and I hope Johan rests in peace.

May-08-09  Eastfrisian: Read it today for the first time. Younger than me. Really sad. R.I.P.
Jan-07-12  wordfunph: rest in peace, IM Johan van Mil..
Apr-14-12  wordfunph: <Dutch chess players know him from the magazine Schaaknieuws (started in 1986) and from the mail-order company De Beste Zet (The Best Move), specializing in chess books!, which he runs together with his wife Erika Sziva, and from an impressive victory over grandmaster Donner many years ago.>
