Kibitzer's Corner
Jun-13-08  Whitehat1963: Wonder if he's a doctor.
Oct-17-09  Thrajin: <Whitehat1963>, that joke had no "sole".
Nov-26-09  Alphastar: Naw, math teacher, just like Euwe.
Oct-17-12  TheTamale: Happy Birthday, Master Scholl. Holland will be yours once again. Persevere!
Feb-02-20  Alphastar18: There's a nice interview with Eddie Scholl in the Leeuwarder Courant of yesterday:

Some excerpts that could maybe be included in his bio:

- in 1956, when he was 12, he helped at the candidates tournament to transmit moves from games to the demonstration boards

- he played his first dutch championship in 1967, finishing 3rd

- he also participated in the dutch championship in 1969, scoring 50%

- he won the dutch championship in 1970, beating Coen Zuidema in a playoff (the score was 3-3 when Scholl won the sudden death game)

- as reward for winning the dutch championship he was allowed to play in the prestigious IBM Amsterdam tournament of 1970, drawing Spassky among others. Later that year he also played on board 1 at the olympiad for the dutch team, scoring 10,5 out of 17

- in 1971 he played in the IBM tournament again. After a decent start he lost 8 games in a row. After that he decided to not become a professional chess player and just become a math teacher instead.

- Scholl was an IM strength player and Botvinnik said that he could perhaps have become a grandmaster, but because it was very difficult to become a titled player back then, Scholl has always remained without a GM or IM title.

- He has played in the Dutch team league 55 years in a row (almost 500 games) and is still going strong.
