|Apr-13-09|| ||Tabanus: According to http://www.chesscenter.com/twic/twi... from 2001,|
"The tournament brings up an interesting point about the FIDE rating list. It seems its practically impossible to get a name changed in the list. Two of the players Andranik Matikozyan (his preferred spelling) is called "Matikozian" by FIDE and Jack Peters is still listed as John A. Peters, a name he hasn't used in more than 20 years."
Today (2009) there is no John Peters in the FIDE list. The above games should be transferred to Jack Peters.
Some of the games by Peters belong to Jack Peters:
K Shirazi vs Peters, 1984 is most well known.
