Ray Duque III was born in the Philippines on October 16, 1944. He started playing chess in the early 1960s but stoped playing the game because he was a Bit Player Actor in those years in the Philippines and was dancing the Ballroom/Latin Dancing while in the movies. He wanted to be a Master in Chess but never happened instead he was called by his friends GMBD (Grand Master in Ballroom Dancing). In 1999, he resumed playing chess and was connected to many chess sites in the internet. How wonderful to be a Master in Chess and GMBD in Dancing but he got it only in dancing and never in chess. He has been residing in New York City since July 1970.

    Hope he still dances in the ballroom of chess even if only as a kibitzer as we are way past the prime of our lives.
