Nov-05-05  Eastfrisian: He is born on 03.04.1978.

It would be interesting to know, if Latvian Top-Players today are playing the Latvian Gambit, one of my favorite openings.

  whiteshark: More game:

No games since 2002... did he quit for something more serious than chess?

Krokops is a lawyer by profession, so I presume that he gave up full-time chess for his legal career.

Sep-28-13  tjipa: Actually, he has recently played in some chess events in Latvia, yet no great results and no signs of serious returning.
