  Fusilli: He was one of Polugaevsky's seconds in his 1980 candidates semifinal match with Korchnoi in Buenos Aires, the other one being Sveshnikov. The two of them visited my club and played some blitz games. It was exciting to have them.

  FSR: A very strong player who unfortunately was given very few opportunities to compete outside of the Soviet Union.
