  offramp: There's a Marvel comic about this guy.

  Phony Benoni: This player's actual name is unclear.,

I am inclined to think his last name may be <Subramaniam>, ending in "m" instead of "n". That is the form used in USCF rating lists at the time, and the crosstable for the 1968 US Open published in "Chess Life".

USCF's current Member services Area provided no help.

The "New York Times" (August 15, 1968) does use "S. Subramanian", but their brief reports often have definite mistakes and misspellings.

Since he was from California, I checked CalBase, I found both forms for the last name, plus the first name also showed up as "Sabu" and "Suba" in addition to "Subu". Augghh.

As I mentioned, I feel that "Subramaniam" is correct, but I don't feel comfortable submitting a change request. Are there any other thoughts out there?

May-10-15  Sacsacmate: <PB> There are 2 surnames - Subramaniam as well as Subramanian. Perhaps people with the former surname are numerous....

If I may throw my 2 cents in, in absence of specific information...let it remain as it is....he could well be Subu Sunramanian.

May-10-15  Murky: I used to play chess with Subu in the cafes around Berkeley California. His last name, as I remember hearing it, was 'Subramanian', I checked the web site of the Mechanics Institute chess room in San Francisco, and they spell it exactly as listed here. No final 'm' on his last name.

  Phony Benoni: <Sacsacmate> <Murky> Thanks for the your thoughts. Personal knowledge is always the best information, so there is no need to request a change.

I'm not surprise USCF would have it wrong. They had an incorrect version of my name for years, and it's almost impossible to screw that up.

So you're not David Mondy?

Good to know.

  Phony Benoni: <TheFocus> They had the wrong middle initial. And it was probably du to my chronically poor penmanship. I once got a tax refund check made out to <Dawd Moody>.

Thank Goodness for Notepad!
