Kibitzer's Corner
Sep-24-03  patzer2: Dao Thien H (with no listed rating here) looks awful strong only to have two games in the data base, and with both of those being wins against strong GMs. Does anyone have any information on Dao Thien H?
May-10-05  WorldChampeen: Vietnamese GM Dao Thien Hai defeated GM Susanto Megaranto in a recent match. -

http://www.thanhniennews.com/sports...

May-10-05  SpikeyMikey: Think he won the World U18 champs in 1994 in Bratilslava if its the same guy I'm thinking of. I did very badly at the World U16 in the same year :o)
May-11-05  WorldChampeen: The article I believe states, they split the match of standard games and that Dao won in a blitz match!
Apr-20-06  Petrosian63: Vietnamese GM Dao Thien Hai's highest achieved rating is 2609 in 2005.
Dec-16-06  Petrosian63: GM Dao Thien Hai won the silver medal in the Rapid at the Asian Games 2006.

He beat Kasimdzhanov on the way.

  chessgames.com: We've received this player's name in several forms:

Dao Thien Hai
H Dao Thien
Hai Dao Thien
Thien Hai Dao

and probably others as well. Does anybody know the proper way?

May-22-07  darkwitch: To Chessgames.com:

I think Dao is the surname and Thien Hai is the name. Like Xie Jun, Xie is the surname and Jun is the name.

  chessgames.com: So taking into account the fact that Asian/Indian names are usually presented "backwards" (family name first) then "Dao Thien Hai" would be the most correct/common presentation. Thanks.
