There goes a great champ. A historic of the chess. I have some personal memorys about him that I meet him twice on the chessboard. First time when I was 21 year old 1974 I played him in simultan in Reykjavík. I knowed before the games that he had played world match to Botwinnik and I some years before had look at all those games with my father. I had black in the game in Queens gambit. I mede good defence and when I was winning a pawn for nothing he stopped surprisely long at the board and smiled and offered draw...As I was young shark that time I acceppted. He then move the pieces quekly on the board and then say with bigger smile:" And you win a pawn with much better position!" Then we shake hands and he walk fast to checkmate the others..After the big Reykjavík tournament I meet the champ again. I had won my first 6 games in the speed chess championship and then Bronstein walked to me,recoinaised me again and said: "Well,boy then we play again!" In the 2 games I had no chance. He played so fast that I did not know my name..a crush. But it was a plesure to play with such a legend. We here on the icecup will always remember this gentleman.
