Kibitzer's Corner
Apr-16-07  Timex: Who is this guy? I have never heard of him until he won the Bangladesh Championship. Is he a GM? His rating seems to say so.
Jun-13-07  monvalonai: He is the third grandmaster of Bangladesh. he achieved the third norm of grandmaster in the last national championship.

  Abdel Irada: I'm fairly certain this player's name is listed in reverse order: last name first.

Typically, Abdullah is a first name, while Al-Rakib (Ar-Rakib) would be a family name.

FIDE also lists his last name as Abdullah: http://ratings.fide.com/card.phtml?...

No guarantee of accuracy of course, and mistakes on the FIDE database often take ages to rectify. Nevertheless, there seems to be many chess players whose last name is Abdulla: http://ratings.fide.com/search.phtm... and Abdullah: http://ratings.fide.com/search.phtm....
