|Sep-28-13|| ||tjipa: Since I had never heard of such a GM from my neighbouring Lithuania, I googled him and found that currently he is the director of a company that deals in cash registers, scales and other electronic shopping centres' equipment. Good luck to him! Although, it would be great to organize, say, a double return match Krakops-Ruzele.|
