|Mar-04-15|| ||vanwely: I found a game I played with him in a tournament in Florida in the late 1980's. I went 4-1, but he was 5-0 and won the A prize. This was the one and only time I snuck into the expert class and I remember thinking this guy must be a real master to handle me like that. I have survived two heart attacks and consider myself lucky. One of my daily pleasures is going over the game of the day on this site. Thanks Mr. Artidiello.|

|Mar-04-15|| ||Kev: I must have met him the first time with my brother Kenny, probably around 1990 at the chess park in Miami Beach.
Once I remember he picked me up and we drove to a park by the beach when he insisted we go over all the games played at Linares 1994 from my Inside Chess magazines, he was completely focused on chess, later that year he tied for 1st in the U-2200 section of the World Open.
Albert was one of a kind, a very good person, with a kind heart although an unhealthy one. Heart disease ran in his family.
He will be missed.
|Mar-04-15|| ||paavoh: Terrible news to hear about. May his spirit live on here at CG.|
|Mar-04-15|| ||Bubo bubo: Rest in peace, Mr Artidiello - and thank you for chessgames.com!|
|Mar-05-15|| ||HeMateMe: <fsr> Do you have a skittles game between you and Mr. Artidiello, something saved from high school days, that you could reprint here?|
|Mar-05-15|| ||FSR: <HeMateMe> F Rhine vs A Artidiello, 1976 Somewhere or other I have another Caro-Kann blitz game that I won nicely. As I noted in my comments to the above-cited game, these were highly atypical results, since Albert was much stronger than I at the time. But of course those were the ones I saved.|
|Mar-05-15|| ||FSR: I submitted my memory/testimonial to Albert here: http://www.vanorsdel.com/obituaries... (It has to be approved, so you can't see it as yet.)|
|Mar-05-15|| ||wordfunph: rest in peace, NM Artidiello..|
|Mar-05-15|| ||FSR: Here is my memory of/testimonial to Albert, which the Van Orsdel site has now posted:|
<I was a teammate of Albert's on the chess team at Lane Technical High School in Chicago in the mid-1970s. Albert was a very strong player, and a really nice guy. Our team won the state championship Albert's senior year, and the year after that. Many years later I learned that he had moved to Florida, become a chess master, and co-founded the chess website chessgames.com. That website archives hundreds of thousands of chess games so that they may be played over for free by anyone in the world. It is an extremely valuable resource for many thousands of players, and serves as a memorial to Albert and his vision. My heart goes out to Albert's family and friends. He will be missed.>

|Mar-08-15|| ||Richard Taylor: < torrefan: <ALBERTO A ARTIDIELLO
(born Jul-22-1958, died Mar-02-2015, 56 years old) United States of America>|
If, after I die, someone wants to write my biography,
There's nothing simpler.
It has just two dates--the day I was born and the day I died.
Between the two, all the days are mine.
One day, like a child, I suddenly got tired.
I closed my eyes and fell asleep.>
