  stoy: He was born in 1913, is he still alive and playing chess? This database has sixteen games of Cabral - two against world champions!

  vonKrolock: According to Spanish naming customs, fully enforced (I believe) also in Uruguay, father's surname comes first, then probably we should refer, preferably, to Señor <Roux>.

  vonKrolock: <Luisito Roux, así se le conocía en el ambiente ajedrecístico> Online post on his famous game vs Bruno Molinari - including photos, and the facsimile of an article appeared in a contemporary Argentinian magazine (analysis, crosstable of the tournament etc)

<fue campeón uruguayo en los años 1948 y 1970> Both times representing Club Atlético Peñarol
