I shouldn't have missed Ron Henley and Michael Rohde. And I've never heard of Ken Regan and Mark Diesen. So I guess I did pretty well, not having seen any of these players for more years than I care to remember.

Is it John Fedorowicz 3rd from right? It might be Walter Browne 4th from the right. (I once beat him, but he was a lot older than in this picture.)

This is hard. Is that Jonathan Tisdale on the very left. Yasser Seirawan is 3rd from left. Nick de Firmian is on the right.
