Mar-19-06  sneaky pete: Irving Pierce: "31... Ra7! followed by ... Qa6 might cause White a problem on the queenside." "I estimate Bobby spent four minutes on this game, while I spent four hours!"

  perfidious: <sneaky pete> is Irv Pierce still active? We played a number of tournaments together in Western MA in the late 1970s-early 1980s, though never actually meeting OTB.
Mar-20-06  sneaky pete: <perfidious> Still active? No idea, I have no personal knowledge. My information comes from Donaldson's <A Legend on the Road>, quoting Pierce from a 1979 <Chess Life> article (November issue, page 644).
