Tomasz Lissowski

Our friend Tomasz Lissowski from Warsaw is a guarantee of high quality – besides his impressive work on Zukertort (together with Cezary Domański) his biography and game collection of Lionel Kieseritzky (Wydawnictwo DiG, Warsaw 1996), a joint work with GM Bartłomiej Macieja seems to me to have received much too less attention.
