GreaseMonkey: Chris is also one of the nicest guys around. I am a 2050-2100 patzer and have played him twice - two losses since you ask. But he was the perfect gentleman both times.

GreaseMonkey: According to John Grefe in Chess Life and Review (Jan 75), Bobotsov did indeed have a stroke - after the Skopje Olympiad in 1972. Grefe was playing at Varna 1974 when Bobotsov reappeared and made 2 out of 15. One of his draws was against Grefe!
