  Tabanus: 2nd place today in First Saturday GM (Hungary) 3-13 April 2010:

Apr-13-10  HeMateMe: At first, I thought this might be a relative:

<Salvijus Bercys>

Bercys is one of the outstanding NYC high school players who, I think, won 2 straight national scholastic championships, as part of a team from Brooklyn, chronicled in the book "A year with misfits and geniuses".

He's turned pro and is playing an active schedule.
