  perfidious: Played a few tournaments with Giles, and remember him as a tough, aggressive player. Seemed like a decent guy away from the board.


Feb-13-13  Wyatt Gwyon: Just ran into his mating combo against Browne on chesstempo and came here to find more of his games. Sad to see that he died. How does one go about filling out his bio a bit more? Probably the least we could do.

Haven't reviewed the source provided herein, but when I have some time, that can be done.
