He was player of the day... for about 10 minutes. He was then airbrushed away in favour of Wang Hao. Perhaps he is a non-person.

  MissScarlett: <Argentina's #4 Carlos Maderna played so badly in the beginning of the event (0/4) that the team captain decided to sacrifice him on higher boards (the rules allowed that at the time) to give a relief to other members of the team. Amazingly he converted into iron-chest pit bull and scored 5½/7 beating a.o. Apšenieks, Makarczyk, Koltanowski and Ståhlberg.>

  perfidious: The diagrammed position presented by <capanegra> is a clever and elegant windup.

Perhaps one day it will make the list of this player's games; I do not propose to waste time over a futile effort of submitting it.
