|Jan-09-06|| ||EmperorAtahualpa: Kengis currently has the second highest FIDE-rating of his country (2531), behind Daniel Fridman (2559).|
|Feb-16-06|| ||Jim Bartle: Has a Kengis victory ever been the game of the day: e.g. Kengis Can!!|
|Feb-16-06|| ||whatthefat: There was this:
E Kengis vs R Djurhuus, 1991
|Feb-16-06|| ||Jim Bartle: Ahh, just proves once again that great minds think alike.|
|Feb-16-06|| ||tpstar: It went around the first time as "Kengis Kan" = C Kennaugh vs E Kengis, 2003|
|Feb-16-06|| ||Jim Bartle: Someday, someday I'm going to come up with an original one. I'm still jealous as heck of the guy who came up with "Michael Rohde Boat Ashore."|

|Apr-12-08|| ||SwitchingQuylthulg: Happy birthday GM Kengis!|
|Feb-17-09|| ||SwitchingQuylthulg: Happy birthday to Player of the Day!|
|Feb-17-09|| ||Open Defence: how was he born in both February and Apr ??|
|Feb-17-09|| ||SwitchingQuylthulg: It's just one of my funny habits. Whenever one of my favorite players makes PoTD I say "happy birthday" in advance because I'll probably forget on their real birthday.|
|Feb-17-09|| ||SwitchingQuylthulg: Mind you, I'm not the only one. Indeed I see that as recently as this morning you yourself wished Jan Cervenka a Happy Birthday 364 days in advance.|
|Feb-17-09|| ||WhiteRook48: 364 days in advance?! almost never happens|
|Apr-12-09|| ||wordfunph: Trivia: Edvins Kengis and Sigurd Lanka refused to play in international competitions unless the Latvian flag was used at their table in place of the Soviet one.|
Happy Birthday GM Kengis!!!
|Apr-12-09|| ||SwitchingQuylthulg: Oh well, I did notice his real birthday. But I very nearly didn't, so the point is valid.|
Happy real birthday, GM Kengis.

|Feb-17-12|| ||Penguincw: Congratz for POTD. :)|
|Feb-17-12|| ||waustad: Oh well, that pun was too easy. His first name could possibly be used with "Ed Wins" or "Ed Wynn" if somebody sees a way.|
