Kibitzer's Corner
Apr-16-07  Timex: Who is this guy? I have never heard of him until he won the Bangladesh Championship. Is he a GM? His rating seems to say so.
Jun-13-07  monvalonai: He is the third grandmaster of Bangladesh. he achieved the third norm of grandmaster in the last national championship.
Feb-01-13  Abdel Irada: I'm fairly certain this player's name is listed in reverse order: last name first.

Typically, Abdullah is a first name, while Al-Rakib (Ar-Rakib) would be a family name.

Oct-07-13  twinlark: <Abdel Irada>

FIDE also lists his last name as Abdullah:

No guarantee of accuracy of course, and mistakes on the FIDE database often take ages to rectify. Nevertheless, there seems to be many chess players whose last name is Abdulla: and Abdullah:

Apr-17-18  Saniyat24: He is known by Abdullah Al Rakib, Mollah must be his title but he does not use it, so the correct name would be Abdullah Al Rakib Mollah...
