  Honza Cervenka: <Moldavan veteran GM Viktor Bologan> is younger than Zbynek Hracek.
Sep-09-15  waustad: Considering where he lives I'm surprised that a player search on came up with two other players with that family name, but none matching his whole name.
Sep-09-15  waustad: Is there a spelling issue? Looking at some of the events he's played in that seems implausible.
