Kibitzer's Corner
Feb-07-18  zanzibar: <
The chess section of Riga is not that big, but there are many former front-line soldiers in its ranks. In our chess club often comes a short man, his appearance is very little like a hero. His name is Nikolai Kaukitis. Young chess players know only that Kaukitis is a strong first-rate player and that, no matter how busy, he will always find time to sort out an interesting partner of the last tournament, that he is an active public figure. But not many people know that this man is a former major and that in a dashing year, when the Nazis were eager for Moscow, he, along with his comrades, performed a heroic feat. In the immediate vicinity of the moving column of tanks, Kaukitis crawled out onto the highway and mined it. Two armored fascist monsters found their grave on this highway.
