I have played many games with Arnold over the years in Kurnik and am very saddened by his death. I was told by his nurse a couple months ago that he was having much trouble moving the pieces and I was in the process of making a software program so he would be able to move the pieces on kurnik by talking into a microphone. He will be sure to give Marion Tinsley a run for his money in heaven. May he rest in peace.

My regards to his family,

Eric Strange
