Dec-20-11  brankat: A man of many talents.

He drew against Alekhine 3 times. Had a win against Tartakower and Yates. Not shabby.

R.I.P. Dr.Ardid.

  wordfunph: <Dr Ramon Rey Ardid (1904-88), a medical doctor from Zaragoza, was one of Spain's strongest players for three decades. He represented his country at the 1924 Paris Olympiad, won the Spanish Championship four times and in 1944 he played a short match with world champion Alekhine, losing only one game. Dr Rey only seems to have played CC for a brief period in the early 1930s.>

taken from the book 64 Great Chess Games by Tim Harding.

  moronovich: Played him in Las Palmas 75.A very nice and gentle man.

It was only later I realised that he played a match vs the great Alekhine.
