Premium Chessgames Member
  Tabanus: Awarded the Grand Master (GM) title at FIDE's Presidential Board meeting 1/2010:, congratulations!

Mar-08-10  Billy Vaughan: I assume this page "mainly" refers to the Romanian GM, whose full first name seems to be Gergely-Andras-Gyula, and not the weaker Hungarian players born in 1970 or 1980 or the guy who played Anderssen and Marett in the 1850s.

At least, that's how I edited the bio. It would be nice if we could figure out which games belong to whom, though with the two Hungarian players it might be difficult work.

Premium Chessgames Member
  Tabanus: If not all, most games are by the Romanian GM.
