  keypusher: Great news! I knew him when I lived there 1988-1990. A gentleman and a magnificent chessplayer.

Mar-10-08  Riverbeast: Hombre!

I know you from NYC, amigo....You used to kick 'culo' in Washington Square Park...In 'mas suave' fashion...

Congratulations on your GM title.

Apr-03-08  chessmoron: Is this really User: Mateo?
Apr-04-08  hitman84: <MORON>Could be..
Apr-04-08  mistreaver: < Is this really User: Mateo?> It really could be because Mateo's comments are very interesting and look quite professional
Apr-12-08  stanleys: Congratulations from me too!

I was surprised (and pleased) to read his interview in which he said that he was not a professional,never worked with chess programs,but with books;finally he called Petrosian as a favourite player

Apr-23-08  positionalgenius: Mateo, I see you are a top player. No wonder your annotations are deep!
Apr-23-08  Red October: if this is User: Mateo we are indeed honoured to have interacted with him at if not, User: Mateo's analysis are still high class so either way we are honoured
May-12-08  stanleys: Deserves a picture,I believe.How about this one:
May-29-09  myschkin: . . .

GM Ramon Mateo learnt how to play chess at the age of 13. Soon he scored numerous local and international results. 1981 he was awarded the IM title by FIDE. In 1988 Mateo backed out of tournament play, but started a successful comeback ten years after chess retirement: Until 2005 he achieved the required 3 GM norms and in 2008 his rating overcame the 2500 ELO barrier. He represented the Dominican Republic not less than eight times at the Chess Olympiads since 1978.

If this guy in the picture is really Ramon Mateo, then I don't believe he is a good player, or a grandmaster. He may not even know how to play chess at all. Look at the chessboard in front of him. He does not know where to put his Queen and King in their initial position. He is already in the middlegame and he hasn't noticed yet!

  chancho: <nanobrain> He's playing with the black pieces. Look at the color of his opponent's pieces.

The square his Queen is standing on is dark, so...
