Kibitzer's Corner
Jun-25-09  biglo: Born Baku, Armenia, 1965. Grandmaster since 2003. First norm Yerevan Olympiad, Amenia, 1996. Second norm Bischwiller France, 1999. Third norm Griesheim, Germany, 2003.
Jun-26-09  biglo: Oops Armenia rather than Amenia.
Jun-27-09  waustad: He is an Armenian GM, but Baku is in Azerbaijan. In 1965 though, it was all USSR.
Jun-30-09  biglo: I stand corrected!
Jun-30-09  arsen387: And during the Nalchik Grand Prix he was the second of GM Vladimir Akopian, who put up an astounding performance finishing joined 2nd with Leko 1 point behind Aronian. 4th FIDE Grand Prix (2009)
