  Benzol: <ughaibu> Was Uusi the player that brought Tal's first run of unbeaten games to a close?
Feb-09-05  ughaibu: Benzol: the loss to Uusi immediately preceded the first run.

  The Long Diagonal: <Isn't Uusi the short form for Uusikaupunki ?>

Not really. The short form locals use is Uki.

Jun-30-08  minasina: In some Finno-Ugric languages word <uus> (Estonian) or <uusi> (Finnish) denotes word <new> in English.

  OhioChessFan: 2 wins against Tal, a win against Levenfish, and against Osnos...he had something going on. A shame the database games are only 39%. There has to be some wins of his that can be uploaded.
