Jan-15-05  activechess: Mama, q pesao esta este tio en el Club Argentino
Apr-11-09  waustad: I suspect that there may be more than one player with this name here.
Feb-18-11  Caissanist: So far as I know these games are all from the same player. Shocron emigrated from Argentina to the United States sometime in the sixties or early seventies, and had a long career in both countries.
Jul-21-11  LIFE Master AJ: I actually played - and lost to - Shocron - as a young man. (I am 53 now.)

  perfidious: <Caissanist>: Indeed Shocron did-just found a game from 2004 which is clearly his and have submitted it for correction.

Also, I remember seeing him (much to my surprise) in an event at Albany, New York in March 1980.

Aug-07-19  Caissanist: Collection of press clippings about Shocron during his years in the USA (he emigrated in 1960), including several photographs: http://www.lehighvalleychessclub.or... .
