  acirce: Isn't he Tom Wedberg, not Tomas?
Sep-09-04  RisingChamp: Tomas is his full name.He is Swede as I am sure u r aware( being a swede urself).He is a very attacking player.
Premium Chessgames Member
  acirce: <Tomas is his full name.> I didn't know that but I think it should say Tom here as it always does otherwise.
Sep-09-04  WMD: Tom's a big fan of Bobby Fischer.
Sep-09-04  RisingChamp: Another point- Is his name here Bobby Fischer or Robert Fischer? Because if it is the first,their policy seems to be contradictory
Premium Chessgames Member
  acirce: He's listed as Robert James Fischer but Bobby is just a nickname while Tom is what Wedberg is always called even officially. For example
Sep-09-04  poktirity: Is it just me or is down today?
Sep-08-05  Runemaster: <poktirity: Is it just me or is down today?>

FIDE's been down for years.
