Greetings from Key West FL USA.

I'm a Vishy fan. In 1985 I was in Madras, India on a field project and played lots of chess at the Tal CC. I also had the opportunity to play at the V.K. Mills Open in Palni, won by 15 year old Vishy Anand. Afterwards Vishy and his friend Manuel Aron (sp?) went over their games in my dorm room and then we played some speed. I took a snapshot. They were just a couple of kids, I was the bigshot visiting scientist. :)

Best published rating USCF 1954 in 1987, highest rated victim 2150, call myself an Expert.
