  GrahamClayton: Here is an Altschuler victory that I have just uploaded to the database. This game won the Dr Ronald Hames Prize for the best non-master CC game of 1986, as judged by Alex Dunne through his "The Check is in the Mail" column of the US Chess Life magazine.

  wordfunph: on Bruce Altschuler..

<During the years that the U.S. championship was held in New York, wallboarders were often chosen at the last minute. Bruce Altschuler, who was in the U.S. Army, had just returned from a tour of duty in Vietnam in 1968 and was enjoying a 30-day leave before his next assignment at Fort Hood. He decided to drop by the playing site, the Henry Hudson Hotel. “They were short of wall boys and asked if I could help out,” recalled Altschuler, now a political science professor at the State University of New York at Oswego.

He handled a drawn game between Bill Lombardy and Sammy Reshevsky and what he remembered most was the postmortem: “Lombardy used some very unpriest-like language in complaining that Reshevsky was never willing to admit making a mistake,” Altschuler recalled.>
