  whiteshark: He won the International Czechoslovakian Championship in Bratislava in 1983 with 10 points ahead of Lubomir Ftacnik (who became therefore Czechoslovak champion) with 9.5 points and Rainer F A Knaak with 8.0 points.

It also brought him his first GM-norm.

It would give us great pleasure if you'd start firstly. :D

CG should correct this one, he was actually awarded the GM title in 1990..
