Short biography
An American gay chessmaster who enjoyed writing about chess. Known for the opening Santasiere's Folly, as well as his quote on the Queen's Gambit:

"The Queen's Gambit is neither a gambit nor an honor to any Queen. It is like a piece of dead flesh kept overlong on ice...more the tool of a coward than an adventurer"
