On New Year:
Pictures of an eventful autumn

[Page 1]


Dear friends of the Ken Whyld Association,

it’s already a bit of a tradition for us to start the new year with a short and illustrated look back – less the words than the events should motivate all of you to appear "in front of my lens" as well at the one or other of the many opportunities in the coming months.

So pictures may be found of the last TV match Vlastimil Hort vs Helmut Pfleger played in the WDR studio at Köln-Böcklemund (2005-08-21, Pope’s day in Cologne), see also the (German) ChessBase report Die letzte Partie im WDR (Das Ende einer Ära).

GŁnter Wallraff
Günter Wallraff was one of the spectators too, according to the interview his relation to chess comes from "completely down".

Rarely I had such a competent and patient analyzing partner: impressing two hours over the board together with GM Artur Jussupow.
