Default Incredible chess lookalike

Another incredible chess lookalike!

I have just seen a picture of Aussie honkey-tonk joanna-basher David Helfgott.

Which famous GM do YOU think he looks like?

I don't tend to know what famous GMs look like. I can only guess Bronstein
but you probably mean someone else.

I was correct but you weren't! The GM David Bronstein looked nothing like
him at all, other than a similar balding pattern.

You're confusing him with a different David Bronstein, who is still alive and worked as a doctor in the US: http://www.idvl.org/harrisburglivinglegacy/Bio27.html
AFAIK, the doctor is just David Bronstein with no middle initial.

Agreed that the doctor David Bronstein looks like David Helfgott.
How did you discover this similarity?

Paul
