Kibitzer's Corner
Jun-18-04  Maroczy: Unless the pairings have changed Sulskis drew Macieja in the first round in Libya. Lithuania vs. Poland. A lot of history and animosity between these two former allies. The Battle of Grunwald, 15th century where Lithuania, Poland et al. kicked the future Nazi's ass:) I'll be rooting for Macieja.
