    This thin volume is an enlarged version of a very lengthy two-part article which appeared in the June and July 1982 issue of Northwest Chess that premier sectional monthly out of Seattle, Washington. Viktor's Pupols is a writer's dream. Pleasantly eccentric in virtually everything he does (and as the reader will soon discover, the owner of a chess style more baroque than Walt Disney's Fantasia), the man is an unstanchable torrent of eloquence.
