    Today it's nine years and one day since the great Bent Larsen passed away. I still miss him despite that he always called the guy who can't play endgames ...

    Here are a little Dutch movie from 1970. Bent larsen - in Dutch(!) - lay in his bed and explains why he is better than Bobby Fischer! Later he imitates Walter Browne...

    WARNING ... Both the TV-presenter and Jan Hein Donner are smoking cigarettes ...

    If my Dutch is on par - it's not ... - he says that he sleeps from 4:00 - 12:00, so maybe the interviewer came around twelve ...

    Interesting synth arrangement of The Beatles Black Bird by Fuzzy!
    I also loved Donner's "Oxbridge" English in the comments.
    What that whole thing has to do in a "Latest News from Karpov" thread is another story!

    Elderly Dutch like to sleep in the afternoon with total neighborhood silence I was led to believe from my unsuccessful Dutch ex-neighbors. So Bent was unusual.
