|Oct-16-05|| ||lopium: For sure he is Quebecer, I guess. As I am, and that's a French name.... So from Qc, Canada, or France but here I doubt.|
|Aug-10-06|| ||EmperorAtahualpa: His family name could be of Dutch origin too.|
|Jul-14-08|| ||Squarepusher: He's brazilian|
|Jul-14-08|| ||whiteshark: Well, a pure bijou.|
|Dec-17-08|| ||IvanchukPupil: Still doesn't change anything?His is a IM put in the biography.He's brazilian champion search in the CBX to see.|

|Dec-30-08|| ||vonKrolock: <Caucasian/Oriental (Fier, who bears a surname which is a corrupted version of German Vier)> - What's "caucasian/oriental"?! According to Fier's father Luciano, is an Italian surname, with same root of english "fierce" - or it changed since?!|
<According to Rabbi Najmanovich, until then the only player who used Yarmulke during a chess event was Akiba Rubinstein.> This can be canfirmed?! - <"the only">!?
|Dec-30-08|| ||Anyi: It is very conceivable, but there's so far no picture confirming that Rubinstein wore a Yarmulke during a chess event.
In his later years (after the death of his wife 1954) Rubinstein would always wear a certain kind of a cap, and never take it off.|

GM Leonid Yudasin, 2004 Santa Monica Invitational
|Dec-30-08|| ||vonKrolock: <Karpova> So (at least) also Yudasin - Well, it was really a very strong event - and nice that the national Championship is again played in this Round Robin format... The images show that the playing hall is quite spacious, comfortable and well illuminated - and hardly could someone say it was an <unorthodox> venue (lol) - we heard to concerti of profane music in catholic churches, for instance... Great victory for young Andrï¿½ Diamant! - In 1980 the Brazilian Junior Championship was held in an Art Museum, the 'Museu Guido Viaro' in Curitiba - I was there as arbiter - Then Milos was first followed by Lima - both are today GMs and played at Porto Alegre - Diamant and some of the other participants were not yet born...|
