  Retireborn: Zbot? Well, I suppose you zeds have your names and it would be Brashe of me to make fun :)

  Straclonoor: <Retireborn: Zbot?> I think it was Johannes Ernst Seyboth (in Russian media Ivan Martynovich Zeibot) - strong St.Petersburg chess player. He was born and passed away in Riga (1864-1938). He was school teacher in Petrischule in Saint-Petersburg.

  Retireborn: <Straclonoor> Thanks. My database has one game by Zeibot against Alexander M Levin, St Petersburg 1900.

<perfidious> Zeds under the bed. Surrounded by zeds, one can only be in Zugzwang.
