Kibitzer's Corner
Dec-29-05  jperr75108: player of the day... still no kibitzing? come on people.
Dec-29-05  nsteinme: If my memory is correct, this is "Lord Malshun" on, one of the strongest blitz players playing there, with a higher rating than, for example, Short, Radjabov, and Grischuk.
Apr-24-07  virginmind: <nsteinme> yes, your memory is correct.
Oct-25-09  Everett: The only listed undefeated player in the Olympiad currently. English?
Oct-07-10  BIDMONFA: Robert Markus
