  Benzol: Anyone know for sure if this is US player Bruce Rind?
Premium Chessgames Member We did some research, and Chessbase has Bruce playing at both the Lone Pine Open '79 as well as the Lloyds Bank in '78. Therefore, we'll go with them and say "yes".

  Phony Benoni: I have tournament bulletins from Lone Pine 1979 and 1980, and Bruce Rind played in both of those events. USCF crosstables confirm the games played in 1992 and 1993.
May-29-08  Strongest Force: Bruce was a good friend of mine during his college years. He went on to become a world famous psychologist.

Rind was involved in a controversial study of child abuse which was censured by the United States Congress:

ertragungsgesetz. I hope I got it correctly, though I think it technically doesn't exist anymore :-)
May-27-20  Marcelo Bruno: Hello, everybody! Does someone know from which game is this position below?


In this case Black wins and mates in four moves: 1.…Rh6+ 2.Kg1 Rh1+ 3.Kxh1 Qh3+ 4.Kg1 Qxg2#.

I received an information that the game was played by Bruce Rind (White) and Gianfrancesco Gandolfi (Black) in Milan, 1939; however I found an information that this seems unlikely because, according to Chessgames database, Bruce Rind was born in 1953.
