Kibitzer's Corner
Feb-14-06  sagahelten: It looks like Germany is getting a new Grandmaster. Michael Hoffmann has the three norms. He only has to reach 2500 rating.

He now has 4,5 of 5 in the Aeroflot A2-group! (Not bad for an IM)!

Aug-01-06  BIDMONFA: Michael Hoffmann


Nov-30-10  jackpawn: Is the current rating here right? 2260 and he's a GM? He's only 40 years old . . .
