|Jul-25-05|| ||BishopofBlunder: I wouldn't call a chess match with a dead man a "casual" game, exactly...|
|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.|
|Jul-25-05|| ||Giearth: You mean playing with... a ghost, or other etheriel beings? O_o|
|Jul-25-05|| ||BishopofBlunder: The only thing worst than playing a dead man is getting beat by one. (Polerio was +4 -0 =0 in games in 1801)|

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.

|Nov-07-14|| ||Christoforus Polacco: The most spectacular gambit - Gambit Muzzio- should be called ''Gambit Polerio''. In Polerio's manuscript there are variants of this. So Polerio was first !
In monography of king's gambit, Estrin and co-autor Glazkov, they use trade name : ''Polerio gambit''.
