Kibitzer's Corner
Mar-19-11  BobCrisp: A forgotten man of English chess. A photo of the English Olympiad team, at Helsinki 1952, shows him to be a smartly dressed man with a moustache and glasses. Standing next to him is the 18 y-o <Jonathan Penrose> who looks absolutely hideous in one of the worst fitting trouser-jacket combinations I've ever seen.
