  ketchuplover: He might have lost to a 12 year old recently.
Dec-11-14  waustad: He did commentary on chessbomb today for the 4th International Chess Memorial of Krystyna Holuj-Radzikowska 2014 tournament and seemed to do quite a good job. It isn't the highest profile tournament, but some decent female players are there.

  kdogphs: Guy just qualified for the World Cup on 2017! Followed a bunch of his games from the EIC, pretty universal style, hope he makes it far in the World Cup!
Jun-12-17  cunctatorg: <@ wordfunph; Anyone knew the meaning of "Mastro" and "Vasilis"?>:

Well, you may have already find the answer after whole eight years!

In any case, "mastro" is a quite simple word, not a Greek word but perhaps a word of Latin origin or so; it simply means "master".

"Vasilis" is perhaps a word of Greek origin though it isn't a Homer's word, it became quite common during the Christian Era and the Byzantine Empire; "Vasileus" is just the King and the word became a little bit "international" as a Christian name etc.

Last but not least about GM Dimitrios Mastrovasilis first name: Dimitrios is surely an ancient Greek word and it was the name of "Dimitra", the Goddess of Agriculture. Plato himself is giving the etymology of the word from the words "dido/dous=give" and "mEtEr=mHtHr=mother" at his "dialogue" on names, "Kratylus". That Goddess was giving as a mother and you can see the interesting (and general) fact that the ancient Greek names had a similar structure to that of the names of e.g. the natives of North America, the "Indians".
