Kibitzer's Corner
Feb-22-08  M Psaila: A legend in Maltese chess circles, having won the championship several times and also was President of the Malta Chess Federation. He remianed a strong player till the end. Not one to study much theory but he had a tactical flair and woe betide you if you happen to be on the wrong end of one of his combinations. RIP
Dec-28-11  acmilan03c1: Does anyone know what year he died in? It would help a lot with this little project I have...
