Now, I don't know if this is fair to Svedberg or not, but it's the closest thing I can get to a barometer on his offensive skills. I'm not sure how complimentary this ends up being; it is less than I had expected. Now, Suchy is a strong top pairing QB in my opinion, but less than half of his production is...less good.
Svedberg was also in 1966 Ljublana. Points 0+2 if Czech sources are correct. Apparently played on second pairing and didnīt play in all games.
