  WannaBe: I wonder if we can say "NO SOUP FOR YOU!".
Feb-06-07  Prugno: Happy birthday, Miso! Not only a strong GM but also an excellent writer and coach. He is very well-known in Italy, where he has played dozens of tournaments and is appreciated for his sportsmanship and fighting spirit (which shows no sign of fading - Cebalo is extremely fit for his age!) A worthy Player of the Day.

Also speaks many languages fluently and was chosen as editor of the bulletin for last year's Olympiad in Torino.
