  whiteshark: Bio of the Player of the Day: On the Bidmonfa picture it looks as if he is blind.
Jan-25-09  WhiteRook48: ha ha, he looks like a guy with weird sunglasses. Weird
Jan-25-12  Dr. J: Hard to believe someone could win the Polish Championship with a rating only in the 2300's. Can someone explain?
Jan-25-12  King Death: <Dr. J> Back when Kostro won his championships you didn't have some of the strong players that came along just a little while later and there weren't FIDE ratings published until 1970. Back then he would have been a player of just about international standard. Today they wouldn't let him in through the front door.
