|Jul-25-05|| ||BishopofBlunder: 'Course, maybe it was a correspondence game? Or distance match?
John Edwards could have "received" the moves from the other side and played them on the board for the dearly departed.|

In 1575, Polerio, who was nicknamed l'Abruzzese because Lanciano is in the Abruzzo region in Italy, accompanied his friend Giovanni Leonardo to Madrid. He and Leonardo played together as a team, contesting their chess skills against the formidable Ruy Lopez and Spain's other master chess player, Alfonso Ceron. Later the Italians were joined by Paolo Boi , also known as Il Siracusano.
