|Mar-06-09|| ||sneaky pete: A chess book I purchased 10 or 12 years ago contained a small notebook, with 6 original scores of games played by Van Scheltinga in (probably) 1981. Game 5, against Cathy van der Mije (Nicolau), is dated March 11, 1981, so one may assume that the first (there I go again!) 4 against Flemish masters were played not long before. From this collection I present this flawed masterpiece against Bernard De Bruycker. Van Scheltinga is black.|
