Helmut Pfleger turns 80

He is one of our earliest friends in chess, a personality that has done more for German chess than anyone we know. He started as the country’s most talented young player, became a grandmaster, a medical doctor, but continued to promote the game in numerous chess columns and TV shows. Today he turns eighty, and is still going strong. In our article we also include some unique problems that another octogenarian composed for his coeval colleague. | Photo Nadja Wittmann
