  Peligroso Patzer: I played Marvin Dandridge a few times many years ago when I was living in Chicago. I honestly cannot recall the results, but if I had beaten him (or even split a point), I probably <would> have remembered the result (so it is a more than reasonable inference that my lifetime score against him is probably zero. He was a strong player and seemed a pleasant and good person.

It was nice to see one of his games featured as today's GotD: M Dandridge vs B Kreiman, 1993.

Nov-01-12  Marmot PFL: < He was a strong player and seemed a pleasant and good person.>

You make it sound like he's dead already.

  bigmell: He just played his first tournament in 15 years. Its was a memorial tournament for a guy who ran one of the longest running Chicago tournaments Tom Fineberg. He won the tourney 4-0. Interesting because he is usually always at the big tourneys but he never plays.
