Premium Chessgames Member
  technical draw: I wonder if he plays the Queen's Gambit D. Klein?
Mar-29-12  ketchuplover: drew nyzhnyk today
Aug-07-14  bystander: According to the KNSB-website (Dutch chess federation) David Klein has 3 GM norms and the KNSB states he passed the 2.500 ELO rating this summer, so they expect him to get his GM title soon.
Aug-26-14  BIDMONFA: David Klein

KLEIN, David

Dec-20-14  siggemannen: No games in 2014? What happened?
Premium Chessgames Member
  MissScarlett: His career went into rapid D Klein.
Dec-20-14  waustad: <siggemannen> If you look at his FIDE card, he's been quite active, but not in big tournaments that make it to this database. I don't follow Dutch leagues, but if they publish games you could try posting some of the games if you are a fan. That is how a lot of games make it here.
Dec-20-14  grasser: The little guy made it.
Jan-11-15  siggemannen: He's back to playing in Tata Group B, go David!
Premium Chessgames Member
  Breunor: According to the Wikipedia article linked above, he's a GM. His bio should be updated.
