Yesterday was grandmaster Yusupov’s 61st birthday.
Yesterday was Spassky’s 84th birthday.
Grandmaster Ciocaltea (1932-1983) would have had his 89th birthday yesterday.
FIDE Master David Griego was a prominent player in New England during the 1980s and 90s. Unfortunately, he died of cancer earlier this week at the all too young age of 56. He was widely liked in the chess community and known for his photographic memory. RIP. Here he outmaneuvers a strong grandmaster.
