Dec-25-03  rndapology: This Romanian GM signed my board at the Florida scholastic championships in I think it was 5th grade. He used to attend the University of Florida. Hmmm...
Dec-25-03  rndapology: Anyone else meet GM's at scholastic tournaments as youths and receive a signed board?
Apr-28-04  Clock1913: Which year did you attend. I've only attended the FCA scholastic champs once but I've gone to the FSCL tournament every year since 1998 and most recently the one in lakeland in march.

  howardb86: His lectures at are awesome. Just Great! best thing I've found to retool after being absent from chess for many years--getting ready for my grandkids who play. Check it out. He writes very well.
Oct-25-09  BIDMONFA: Gabriel Schwartzman


Dec-22-12  HeMateMe: Is he an author? I've heard this name before.
Mar-08-13  IndigoViolet: <In 1993, he was awarded the GM title at age 17.>

Anyone know in which countries he gained his GM norms? I'm guessing Romania, Bulgaria and/or Hungary.

Oct-23-14  ketchuplover: May he have a total chess birthday :)
