Kibitzer's Corner
Jan-24-07  garcia.markina: Parece que Espinosa y Russek visitaron la misma escuela de chavitos. Y que fue Espinosa quien inició a Russek en esto del ajedrez. Al igual que Roberto Martín del Campo y Russek, Espinosa tuvo el potencial para llegar a ser gran maestro, pero algo salió mal, por así decirlo.
Jan-24-07  euripides: <escuela de chavitos. > we have those in South London.
Jan-24-07  garcia.markina: Very good, but what I actually mean is that they visited the same school when they both were "chavitos"! Sorry, I wrote in a quite coloquial mexican spanish (but you seem to understand it very well)

Besides, I do not like that kind schools: only boys or only girls. It seems a little bit artificial to me.

Sep-18-07  Manuel Garcia: No sé si tenga por ahí otro escondido, pero su triunfo sobre Dreev fue su momento de gloria. Primero le ganó y luego lo contuvo sin problemas en la segunda partida.
