Eric Rosenthal remembrance published by Chessbase!

Chessbase has published the remembrance of Eric Rosenthal that Marc Polonsky wrote for this year’s Gulf Coast Open! You can see the story here.

Eric and I exchanged games back in our youth (the old-fashioned way — with letters!) and I present here a nice game that Eric played vs Mikel Peterson in St Petersburg a very long time ago. RIP my friend.

Eric playing in a simul versus Victor Korchnoi in Hollywood, Florida. Eric was the only player to draw that day!
