|May-30-05|| ||TheAlchemist: His name should be Anthony. He plays on Playchess.com, where his handle is (was) anthonywirig|
|May-30-05|| ||hintza: More to the point, Anthony Wirig! ;-)|
|May-30-05|| ||TheAlchemist: Thanks for that, I only found this page through the game Acs vs A Wirig, 2001 and so I didn't see this "duplicate".|
|May-30-05|| ||Akavall: <His name should be Anthony. He plays on Playchess.com>|
I thought his name sounded familiar....
|Jul-15-07|| ||Karpova: Pictures:
|Jul-15-07|| ||whiteshark: I hope I'll never meet his hairstylist. :-)|
|Feb-25-10|| ||technical draw: I'm betting on him in the chessbookie game. If I don't he'll kill me.|
|Feb-25-10|| ||Cercatore: Holy @#$%, he's absolutely of mind.|
|Mar-26-11|| ||BIDMONFA: Anthony Wirig|
|Mar-26-11|| ||wordfunph: 2011 European Individual Championship: so far so good for French IM Anthony Wirig with a hot 4.5/5!|
|Mar-26-11|| ||hedgeh0g: I heard he moves the pieces with his mind!|
|Mar-27-11|| ||zoren: I haven't seen much of him since his playchess fame, nice to see him doing well in the 2011 EIC.|
|Mar-27-11|| ||talisman: it's all in the Wiring.|
|Jul-29-11|| ||eternaloptimist: Man, that's 1 stupid & weird looking hairdo!! Although 1 of the reasons for having it might be to distrupt his opponents concentration (psychological). The other reason(s) would be: he is crazy &/or he really likes it?!?!|
|Jun-05-13|| ||CFMEU: Just played some really weird moves against Bacrot in the French Team Championships. A pity Chessgames ain't covering it. 1-0 to Bacrot.|
|Mar-14-16|| ||waustad: Most of his pictures look much more normal. Then again, without the "My Favorite Martian" do he'd be a minimal GM from a country with several much stronger ones and nobody would remember him.|
|Apr-07-16|| ||offramp: He get signal?|
|Dec-17-16|| ||S4NKT: Most people are not brave enough to have an unusual hairstyle and only want to 'fit in' and 'not be noticed', ever since the 1990's most men just have 3cm or so of nondescript hair, unless you're Italian or unusually fashionable.|
Considering his clothing in a picture elsewhere he's most likely into some kind of trance or cyber-goth music subculture, which is respectable.
