Nov-11-14  Eastfrisian: Hart to believe, but I never have heard of him. :-(
Nov-11-14  waustad: Looking at his entries on, he plays mostly in the Czech Republic and some in Austrian leagues. This year he's playing for Blackburne Nickelsdorf in 2. Bundesliga Ost 2014/2015, where he has won both of his games on board 1 so far. Of course, not all results make it to that website, so he may play many other places, but those are the only very recent games posted on the FIDE site. German tournaments and leagues, for example, usually rely on much less convenient results software.
