  1. No clues! I’m curious to find out people’s guesses. Your picks will give me ideas for future lectures (if members are interested).

    David :-)

    1. OK. If it doesn’t have to be in Canada or between Canadians, how about Abe Yanofsky’s win over Mikhail Botvinnik in Groningen, 1946?

  2. Fully agree with Abe Yanofsky. Apparently his rook sacrifice against Peruvian
    Alberto Dulanto at age 14 is considered extremely noteworthy too. But beating
    a World Champ is pretty cool. Also props to Mark beating Topalov, if famous in
    the modern era counts.

  3. I can’t think of an individual Suttles game. Spraggett won a pretty big game in the Candidates matches.
