Kibitzer's Corner
Aug-31-11  twinlark: Congratulations on achieving his 3rd GM norm. Hopefully he can soon make the necessary rating points.
Oct-15-12  BIDMONFA: Federico Perez Ponsa

PEREZ, Federico

Aug-12-13  ConLaMismaMano: At the age of 17, Federico is the youngest Argentine chess player in history to obtain the Grand Master title (2012). Great talent that decided to go to college instead of pursuing a career in chess. Took part at the last "27th Summer Universidade" representing Argentia and managed to draw Andreikin and Alekseev (both 2700s).
Sep-01-16  Hot Logic: He is also a competitive Age of Empires II player under the name Fedex! for some details if you want to see a game that he played in

Oct-25-17  dumbgai: He finished 2nd in the recently concluded Argentina championship behind Diego Flores. See the Chessbase report:

Of course as an Age of Empires II player I will always root for him!
