  GrahamClayton: Steve Spencer (1950-December 15, 2008).
Spencer was a San Diego resident who reached Master level in the 1980's. His cause of death was lung cancer.

  perfidious: <Graham> Spencer made master long before that-he was the first master I ever played in a tournament game, in summer 1975, at Burlington, Vermont.

The obituary notice said that Spencer was a very good attacking player - were you on the receiving end in your game?

  perfidious: <Graham> Don't remember that, actually; it was a typical first-round pairing where I was White, opened 1.e4 and he played a Modern. Think he won easily in ~30 moves, though that was no surprise, as I was roughly 1600 USCF then.
Dec-02-13  MarkFinan: I just can't believe this guy was a master if his game against Rogoff is anything to go by! This site is turning me anti American, because most of the men (not you Perf) who have achieved master on this site seem to be complete idiots, or/and unworthy of the title!
