|Feb-05-07|| ||nescio: Perhaps someone should mention to <chessgames.com> that Oleg Neikirch,
O Nejkirch, Oleg Neikirkh and Nejkirch are all the same player and can safely be merged into one page.|
|Feb-05-07|| ||Mibelz: <nescio> I have already send a message to <chessgames.com>.
I would like to add an information on Neikirch. He won BUL-ch in 1937, 1938 (joint), 1940 (joint), 1943, 1948 (joint), 1953, and 1957.|
|Feb-05-07|| ||nescio: <Mibelz> I see. But the biographies are not written by the administrators, but by some designnated users. You could try to contact User: benzol or User: iron maiden on their forum to see if they know who is responsible for Neikirch's biography.|
|Mar-08-08|| ||brankat: It appears the duplication, or quadriplication, has been corrected :-)|

|Mar-08-15|| ||perfidious: Bobby Fischer's very first opponent in a world title qualifying event, even if the game did not presage the mighty achievements to come for the young aspirant.|
|Mar-08-15|| ||gars: Happy Birthday, GM Neikirch! Tomorrow we will all be saying the same thing to Bobby Fischer.|
