B86 Rossetto Bashes Behrennsen

Héctor Decio Rossetto (September 8, 1922, Bahía Blanca, Argentina – 23 January, 2009, Buenos Aires) was one of the best chess players in Argentine history.

He earned the title of International Master in 1950 and the Grandmaster title in 1960.

He was a five-time Argentine Champion (1942, 1944, 1947, 1962, and 1972). Rossetto won the Mar del Plata chess tournament in 1949 and again in 1952 (shared with Julio Bolbochán). He also won in Mar del Plata (KIM) in 1962.

He was the director of the 1978 Chess Olympiad in Buenos Aires.

After Miguel Najdorf he was the most important Argentine chess player of his time.

    Czechman I didn't fix the links - there must have been a temporary glitch at your end or with chess.com, which has a fair amt of temporary glitches. BTW I "borrowed" my costume from the recent movie "The Dictator"        This link may be helpful in the future

    Czechman the links work in FireFox 14. Cut-and-paste them into whatever inferior (jk) browser addr bar (or whatever the hell it's called) you're using and hit "enter" - and stop dressing up in drag! (at least in public)

    This goes well with IM Rensch's video series on the Scheveningen Pawn Structure, where he demonstrates at an early point the idea of f4-f5 for white to rip open the diagonal for the Sozin bishop against the black king.  A good game, indeed.
