Kibitzer's Corner
Oct-27-04  nikolaas: In Spain vs USA match in the 1958 Munich olympiadToran won against Bisguier on the third board. As soon as the American master resigned Toran said with a smile: "I am so happy, it's a nice present for my birthday!". "It's all right" - said his opponent politely - "today happens to be my birthday too"...
Oct-02-05  meloncio: Roman Torán died yesterday 1st October in Madrid. Moreover what it's writen in Chessgames Biography, he was many times a main member of the spanish chess olympic team, and became a very popular man of the spanish chess world being President of the Spanish Chess Federation from 1984 to 1997. RIPA.

Jan-05-10  Eastfrisian: As I know, his hobby was to collect stamps.
Oct-08-12  bachiller: His second name, Albero, sounds like a typical spanish term, as it means both the bullring and the sand used for it.

  diagonal: Roman Toran Albero was President of the Spanish Chess Federation from 1984 to 1997. As mentioned, Toran was FIDE vice president from 1982 until 1990.

In 1990, he ran for FIDE presidency, but lost to incumbent president Florencio Campomanes at the FIDE Congress during the Chess Olympiad in Novi Sad (first ballot: Campomanes 79 votes, Toran Albero 26, Rabell-Mendez 9).
