42 ( +1 | -1 ) Who am I ?I am a fairly inexperienced 24 year old player. I am delighted to have been accepted into a major Tournament. My excitement is slightly dulled when I look at who my first six opponents will be, I am to play Alekhine, Capablanca, Euwe, Botvinnik, Reshevsky and Flohr. This means I have to play the reigning World Champion, two former World Champions, one future World Champion and two Super Grandmasters.
43 ( +1 | -1 ) HmmmI wanted to say Let me be the first to bludnder into this. But then think i got it. Thinking something like this: Tal? Sounds like a Tal thing to do! Ah but no, too obvious. Who could do a Tal like result, hhhh Fischer! No wait, he didnt play those right? So maybe tthy both a bit young too ?! Ohhhhh! [This is fun :)] So I'll wait and see. Maybe if you know and dont want to give it away you might post a couple "Nots?" . I hope its not TAL ! :)
29 ( +1 | -1 ) Reuben FineAvro 1938, only player to win 5 in the event (actually 6, 'cause he won one in the second half, too). Keres (undefeated, but only 3 wins, while Fine had 3 losses to go with his 6 wins) and Fine tied for first with 8.5. The conditions at the event favored the younger, more resilient players.
