Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
The Dutch Chess Grandmaster and teacher of the game: Max Euwe.

Aljechin - Euwe, World Championship 1935

I learned of Max Euwe as a great mathematician and professor at University of Amsterdam's Mathemathical Centrum. The first Dutch computer was build here and laid the foundation of NV Electrologica, mainly for scientific studies marketed to European Universities.

Euwe will go down to chess history as the apostle of method. He is a Doctor of Mathematics, a qualified actuary, licensed to teach book-keeping, an accomplished boxer, swimmer, aviator. He has written more books than any three other living masters put together.  - Hans Kmoch

Maybe it's because I'm a Londoner - that I moved to Nice.
