  Benzol: Is this Merike Rotova?
Mar-07-05  sneaky pete: <Benzol> It is. Widow of Boris Rytov. The first o in <Rotova> should have a ~ or - on top of it and is pronounced <ee> afaik.

She wrote her name as <Rytowa> when I met het in a correspondence game in 1991 and as <Rotova> when I played her again in 2000.
