  SteinitzLives: Boris was an incredibly active player, not just in NJ & NY, but traveling between NY and DC to play frequently. He was one of the three Boris's who often finished near the top at local DC area tourneys in the 1980's (the others were Zisman and Reichstein). I think the three were friends too. Boris loved chess, and gave so much of his time to it. He was worth every point of his strong master rating. RIP Boris.
