À la Tal II

My father very fondly remembers Mihail Tal's visit to Bremen in the early 1980s - the charming magician from Riga used to play blitz against three opponents simultaneously, cigarette in one hand, a glass of something in front of him, all the time telling stories - in German!

@Igor Freiberger FIDE has Suba currently representing Spain: https://ratings.fide.com/card.phtml?event=1203363 That is why the flag is as it is. We don't have flag changes indexed over time yet in the PlayerBase.

I believe Suba's national flag is wrong. He is Romanian and always played for Romania, except a short period representing UK. AFAIK, Suba never played for Spain. Tal's may also be wrong, but the article does not inform the date of Keres Memorial.
