Nov-21-08  Karpova: C.N. 5847 gives a link to a new page about Gromer (in French):
Oct-28-10  Dionysius: An extract from Koltanowski's column in Chess volume 1 no 2 14 October 1935: "I am going to write some very unpleasant things about Gromer, and I hope he reads them. He has victimised Spanish chess circles long enough and is doing the game a lot of harm, and I am publishing these details at the request of the committee of the San Sebastian Club; in the hope that they might save afew people from him who might otherwise be duped. Gromer's habit is to turn up suddenly in some small town, announce that he is penniless and beg the president of the chess club to arrange a simultaneous display for him. A display is arranged and he receives a large fee. Now, instead of leaving, he stops. A few days later he calls again and reveals he has borrowed large sums of money from various members; just arrange one more simultaneous display and he will pay off the debt and leave! Again a display is organised but isntead of paying off the debt, he pays half. A week later he turns up and asks for another display to pay the remainder of the debt off. by the time the club gets rid of him he has mortgaged thier finances so badly that they are unable to plan any sort of ambitious programme for years to come" Same chap?
