Chess legend GM Svetozar Gligoric has passed away


 I was first "introduced" to Gligo through his wonderful Game of the Month (with a great emphasis on the openings) column in Chess Life and Review in the seventies, and one of my earliest books was 'The Sicilian Defence"


Yanofsky played 9 games against Gligoric as far as I can tell, but only managed 4 draws. Yanofsky, of course was not a professional player, unlike Gligoric.
