Nov-01-11  twinlark: Congratulations to GM Krejci for achieving his GM title.
Premium Chessgames Member
  wordfunph: congrats GM Jan Krejci!

btw, how do you pronounce Krejci?

Premium Chessgames Member
  Gypsy: <btw, how do you pronounce Krejci?>

The <Krej> part in 'Krejci' is pronounced much like <cray> in 'Cray Computers' or in 'crayon'.

The <ci> part is pronounced as <chii>, say, as in 'Chicago' but longer. (The usual diacritical marks are missing.)

In terms of accent, that goes <KREJ-ci>.

Nov-02-11  twinlark: I knew that.
Premium Chessgames Member
  wordfunph: <Gypsy> thanks.
Nov-02-11  twinlark: Likewise.
Premium Chessgames Member
  Gypsy: <twinlark, wordfunph> My pleasure.
Feb-06-13  BIDMONFA: Jan Krejci
