  OlimpBase: It might not be apparent for non-Dutch speakers that Lex=Alexander (it is a good habit to avoid diminutives in databases I believe)
Jun-21-12  achieve: Good columnist and engaging writer for Chess in the Telegraaf. I remember every weekend how my dad would set time apart to read and study his columns.
Dec-08-13  Karpova: Rest in Peace, Lex!


<In 1957 he became Dutch Youth Champion, and finished third at the World Youth in Canada. He played in the Dutch Championship three times, and was board one player for Rotterdam. In 1960 he won the Open Dutch Championship.>
