  technical draw: <dagootje> Yes Dutch names are hard to pronounce. See the Euwe page.
Premium Chessgames Member
  dakgootje: <technical draw> Yes, but i think we dutchies managed at last to give a good indication there for how to pronounce euwe
Premium Chessgames Member
  technical draw: That's true, now I have to learn to pronounce "dakgootje".
Premium Chessgames Member
  WannaBe: I'd just shorten it to 'dak' =)
Premium Chessgames Member
  dakgootje: <That's true, now I have to learn to pronounce "dakgootje"> You know that i never even thought about that that may be a problem =)

but indeed, most people say dak or dakkie (mostly dakkie), think those wont be too hard to pronounce ;-)

Oct-24-06  BIDMONFA: Sipke Ernst

ERNST, Sipke

Oct-24-06  Rocafella: That pic's a dude?
Oct-24-06  Archives: Surely you jest. That pic is of a female women isn't it?
Mar-13-07  wolfmaster: Can't really tell, can you?
Jul-16-07  coastalferg: tool rocks
Jul-23-08  Alphastar: Yes he's a guy. The picture is pretty vague though.
Jul-23-08  Karpova: More pictures:

And that's what GM Sipke Ernst looks like in comparison with a lady:

  patzer2: Nice article at reveals the level-headed thinking of this Dutch GM.
May-30-11  Raspje: Sipke is a very nice GM of my hometown, Groningen. Willing to explain everything, like after our recent game, which was a draw (finally, a draw, after so may losses!). Maybe sometimes he is a little bit too prophylactic, which is the reason, I think, why he hasn't got 2650 at the moment. But still, a very strong and nice GM.
Jun-30-11  zubenator: tool!
Jan-04-12  messachess: He definitely should change his name to "Spike Ernst." It just sounds cool. Besides, they need a 'Spike' in Holland.

  Penguincw: Happy Birthday! If you face Carlsen again, make sure YOU checkmate Him this time. :)

  Penguincw: < "The 250-euro ‘Piet Zwart Prize’ in Group B went to Holland’s Sipke Ernst for his win in 44 moves with white from a Queen’s Gambit against Group-B leader Pentala Harikrishna of India." >

Almost equally good.

Premium Chessgames Member
  PhilFeeley: Crashed and burned at the Dutch Championships this year. I wonder why.
Premium Chessgames Member
  Penguincw: Happy Birthday Sipke Ernst.
Jan-08-14  HeMateMe: Penguin, whatever became of your Wendys hamburgers avatar? You need to re-up and get your burger back.

Not sure. Last time I checked in the avatar area (which was a LONG time ago), it wasn't there.
