  technical draw: I can't find any information about the death of NM Francisco Benitez. I played him in 1974 and lost. He played against some big names with, unfortunately, no wins. And then there was that controversy with the Keres game: Keres vs F Benitez, 1958. If the birthdate above is correct and he hasn't died he would be 103 years old.
