He won yesterday the strong Neckar Open (Germany):, congratulations!

Feb-20-17  diagonal: He also won the Basel Schachfestival, Open in 2010: (Albo d'Oro of Basel)
Feb-20-17  grasser: Finally, someone I never heard of made "Player of the Day". Will I ever receive the honor? Grasser-Winokur was not a game of Dominoes. I had to calculate very deeply before I gave up my Queen. What more do you want from me? G Grasser vs L Winokur, 2014
