SHAMELESS BRAGGING

I was idly wandering around the web, reading the Wikipedia entries on my two sons, and I came across a fact I did not know.  There is an annual Intercollegiate Chess Match between Yale and Harvard, and the trophy is named the Wolff Cup after Patrick, who is the only grandmaster to have played for both teams, first as a Freshman and Sophomore at Yale and then as a Junior and Senior at Harvard.  I mean, how cool is that!

And your son Patrick also defeated Garry Kasparov, in 1988, while there still was a Cold War!

Indeed, it was Kasparov's shortest loss ever. Patrick was 20 at the time, and not yet a Grandmaster.
