Dec-04-07  ahmadov: Is this man a Turkish player?
Dec-04-07  jamesmaskell: Ismet Ibrahimoğlu is a 3-time Turkish Champion winning in 1967, 1970 and 1971. In 1971 his rating was 2290.

Ismet also won Individual Bronze on second board reserve in the 1966 Olympiad with 10/13 (8 wins 4 draws 1 loss). In 1968 he scored 11/18 on second board (9 wins 4 draws 5 losses) and in 1970 he scored 6.5/17 on first board scoring six wins and a draw.

My Turkish is non existent but Ismet shared first with Demir Büyüközkaya in a tournament in Istanbul in 1961(perhaps the city tournament) Chessmetrics ratings:

Sources are Chessmetrics, OlimpBase and Wikipedia.

Dec-04-07  ahmadov: <jamesmaskell> Thanks for this information... He has games for only four years, but I assume that this is one of the most prominent Turkish players since he once played against Fischer...
