  GrahamClayton: Wiedenkeller finished =1st with Lars Karlsson in the 1991 Swedish Championship, but Karlsson won the title on tie-break. Since the late 1990's he has represented Luxembourg.
Sep-08-15  siggemannen: interesting why he was invited to World Cup?
Sep-08-15  sonia91: <siggemannen> He won the European Small Nations Championship in 2014 (FIDE Zonal 1.1 Championship):

  alexmagnus: Actually it is interesting. Of nine invitees in the World Cup, Weidenkeller is by far the lowest rated (the next lowest is Durarbayli, one of the organizer's nominees, at 2621).
