May-18-04  Legend: Estonian GM Kaido Kulaots:
http://www.maleliit.ee/images/playe...

One of the nicest players out there! I`ve read that he is always very friendly and kind to everyone he meets. It`s rare to find guys like him these days...

Actually he reminds me a little bit of Paul Keres, both by the looks and by wonderful personality. Plays not very bad either... :)

May-18-04  MoonlitKnight: Are all Estonian players that friendly? I heard that Lembit Oll used to be the nicest guy around.
Nov-05-05  WTHarvey: Here is a little collection of puzzles from Kaido's games: http://www.wtharvey.com/kula.html
Nov-05-05  Eastfrisian: He is born on 28.02.1976.
Nov-05-05  shinesaza: Strong player, he plays in a finnish team JyS also. Some of these strong estonians play in finnish club teams, which is very nice.

  wordfunph: maybe i got this from the book Wonderboy Magnus Carlsen by GM Agdestein..

<GM Kaido Kulaots started with 8.5/9 in the Gausdal October 2003 Edition before calming down with two closing draws. He is a friend of the Carlsens. In Gausdal January 2000, he and the Carlsens shared a cabin and on the way back to Estonia he spent a night in their Lommedalen home. He borrowed the room of the eldest Carlsen daughter, and the family jokes that he was the first GM in Ellen's bed.>

happy birthday GM Kulaots!

Mar-23-12  Troller: 3/3 in the European Ch now after beating Roiz in an interesting game in rd 3. Now Kulaots faces MVL with the Black pieces, no easy task.

Nice story <wordfunph>.
