  offramp: I know that Karsten Volke is a very very good-looking man, despite being in his mid 50s ( I think he is now 53 ).

He is a German and has reached the rank of International Master. In fact he has a FIDÉ rating of 2474. although he has been stronger.

He tends to score at about 50%. You can check out his individual style by playing through these notable games:
K Volke vs M Schaefer, 1994 &
D Koenig vs K Volke, 2001.
