Get Well, Mr. Fineberg

Tom Finberg, founder of the South Side’s Tuley Park Chess Club and a giant in the world of Chicago chess for many decades, is hospitalized tonight. I don’t know the nature of Tom’s illness or how serious it is, but I understand from his daughter Carol Fineberg Metzger that he is alert and welcomes phone calls and cards. On Saturday Tom will have a procedure that will probably make him groggy, so if you’d like to call it might be best to wait at least till Sunday:

South Shore Hospital
8012 S Crandon Ave.
Chicago, IL 60617

Tom is in Room 301-1. More information on the Illinois Chess Association forum.

Thanks for the post on Tom. I've always liked and respected Fineberg, and I definitely wish him well soon. He and Maxine are troopers that are very valuable to Chicago.

Thanks again for informing us! Good thing for RSS feeds...
