|Feb-10-06|| ||BIDMONFA: Manuel Apicella|
|Feb-10-06|| ||jackmandoo: He looks like a chess palyer.|
|Feb-10-06|| ||blingice: Apparently you have to do more than be a Grandmaster to get a picture and a multi-word bio on <CG.com>...|
|Feb-13-06|| ||dakgootje: Think hes got one of the best bio's of the whole site! ;-)|
|Dec-10-06|| ||stanleys: I won against GM Apicella a week ago in a rapid tournament.This was my first-ever tournament game against a grandmaster!|
|Dec-10-06|| ||refutor: congratulations! show us the game!|
|Dec-11-06|| ||stanleys: Thanks <refutor>!
Unfortunately I could not restore the whole game - remember only about 30-35 moves.Will post it soon
|Dec-12-06|| ||stanleys: Here it is:

|Dec-14-06|| ||stanleys: Winning this game in the last round allowed me to get the third prize|
|Apr-19-08|| ||brankat: CG.com's biography of Mr.Apicella reads: "Grandmaster." |
A gem of brevity! :-)
Happy Birthday Manuel!
|Apr-19-08|| ||slomarko: could be worse they could have writen: "chessplayer" ;)|

|Apr-19-08|| ||Calli: "Vice-Champion de France 1994"
What's a vice champion? Player has a lot of vices?
|Apr-19-08|| ||MichAdams: It's a fancy dan way of saying 'runner-up'.|
|Apr-19-08|| ||OhioChessFan: That would be this player, <calli> |
|Apr-19-08|| ||brankat: Calli is just joking :-)|
|Apr-20-08|| ||Calli: Yes, but the French must be joking too. "vice" means "in place of", the vice-president can take the role of president, a viceroy is in place of the Roi or king in a territory. Vice-champion in chess? If the first place winner dies, you take their place until next year?|
|Apr-20-08|| ||brankat: Yes, that's in the FIDE regulations since June 2006. (Reg. # I-123 ABC etc) :-)|
|Jun-10-08|| ||stanleys: About 1,5 year later: Same tournament,same round (the last one),same colours and same opening line.However, this time the game was drawn and we changed our places in the tournament table: GM Apicella took the third prize and me the fourth|
