Oct-27-04  vonKrolock: I dont know if Kramnik vs Kinnmark would be a good game, but it's almost a palindrome...
Oct-27-04  Ziggurat: Nicely spotted!
Jan-28-10  Mibelz: Ove Kinnmark was born in 1944, so he did not play against Keres at Lidkoping 1944. It was Olof Kinnmark (1897-1970).
Jan-29-10  vonKrolock: another palindrome <draw star Lord Kramnik follow Olof Kinnmark droll rats' ward>
