I received a text message from GMA Davao News Director
Darios Relatado inquiring if chess genius has a wife or a daughter in .
Alarmed by the text, I immediately called former
Philippine Chess Federation Regional Director Alex S.
Alex, a New York-based Davaoeño, said he read and
heard about the late Fischer having a wife or daughter
in but they could not establish their existence.
I learned that the lady has a Chinese surname. Starts
with a letter “O”.
But, unfortunately, she could no longer be found.
Not even the old woodpushers can recall.
If only national master Joe Pascual is still alive, he
will be a big help.
Charles Maxey, Sunstar Davao Sports Editor and
Sportswriters Association (DSA) President, said that
Fischer played against the many-time national champion
Pascual in the 1980’s at the University of Mindanao
Charles said that one of the 100 memorable games of
Fischer was his game against Pascual.
But as to to the identification of the lady, it
remains unknown up to now.
