  ketchuplover: ciao :)
Feb-02-05  iron maiden: He's gunning for back-to-back victories in Bermuda now, and doing pretty well. He just took the overall lead with a nice victory over Volokitin.
Feb-02-05  fgh: Nice name ;-)
Feb-08-05  ConLaMismaMano: Anyone following Vescovi-Macieja? Is 6.Bb5+ a novelty?

Aug-19-05  Pawsome: So who is this G. Needleman I asked myself as he rose through the ranks to finish second equal in the FIDE semi-final in Argentina recently? The answer came today in the address posted by <notyetagm> above.
Oct-29-05  TopaLove: I think Vescovi will be the next world champion :)
Jan-30-06  gmgomes: I am not sure what happened to him in Corus. He began very well winning his 2 first games then he began to draw and later to lose. He achieved his 3rd win only in last round.

Dec-12-09  vonKrolock: Wonderful event in <Dixie Land City>... and decided in the last round, when Milos had to win with black to become himself the champ. In the whole, Vescovi displayed a more combative play during the event than his main rival

  An Englishman: Good Evening: I know it's roughly 6 1/2 years late to respond to <Larsker>, but Italian is an amazing language. I don't speak it at all, but reading something like The Inferno's Canto V out loud in Italian, the melodiousness still astonishes.

  wordfunph: Buenos Aires 2005: In the penultimate round, GM Giovanni Vescovi was paired against his room mate GM Gilberto Milos. 'What to do? How to prepare? We pretended everything was OK, turned off the computer and watched some football on TV.' quoted from GM Vescovi. The game ended in a draw.

i think i got this info from New In Chess..

Sep-09-12  Yopo: Esta partida G Vescovi vs A Filippov, 2012 mostra que se Vescovi não surpreender o adversário, ele pode perder o equilíbrio.Entretanto, no dia seguinte ele jogou com firmeza e venceu G Vescovi vs T Petrik, 2012 Então, esse ímpeto tem seu lado positivo. Se vale a regra "quando Vescovi perde uma, a outra ele ganha"...Hoje é dia de vitória!
