  Sneaky: I know this guy. He's a Colombian master who lives down here in South Florida. He's got a heart of gold... that is, until you meet him over the chessboard, and then he will do the most mean and viscious things to your poor king you've ever seen!

  matey: Congratulations to Fabio who last week won the 2004 USA Senior Championship.
Dec-24-04  PinkPanther: He needs to learn real openings.
Premium Chessgames Member
  Benzol: <Sneaky> If he won the Senior Championship how old is he?
Mar-08-06  blingice: <PinkPanther> Yes, he does do some obscure openings like the Catalan and Robatsch (certainly uncommon at my level...)

His record of games on this database isn't very good...

  Richard Taylor: I found part of game by him versus Bisguier (it was a Torre, he was White, the book says NY 1979), but cant find the whole game here. Anyone (who either) knows him or can find it?

As I type this...I suppose it's in one of the Informators, hmm, they have a set at my chess club, going in tonight... try to remember it.
