  GrahamClayton: Vidmar's best performance was =6th/20 at Karlovy Vary-Marianske Lazne. Vidmar was leading the tournament at the halfway stage, but he contracted a very nasty facial inflammation that meant he had to be treated at the local hospital. This would have definitely affected his performance in the second half of the tournament.
Dec-16-08  brankat: Born 99 years ago.

R.I.P. master Vidmar.

Dec-16-08  slomarko: Vidmar was a good player, he played against people like Capablanca, Alekhine, Rubinstein.... it is a real shame he only gets 1 page of kibitzing.
Dec-16-08  brankat: <slomarko> You may be referring to Dr.Milan Vidmar, the father of "Jr" above. This one was rated amongst the top 5 between about 1911 to about 1931!

Milan Vidmar

Dec-16-08  slomarko: ooops wrong Milan Vidmar. thanks.
Dec-16-08  brankat: I meant top 6, or so :-)

Between San Sebastian 1911 and Bled, 1931.
