  GrahamClayton: Wiedenkeller finished =1st with Lars Karlsson in the 1991 Swedish Championship, but Karlsson won the title on tie-break. Since the late 1990's he has represented Luxembourg.
Sep-08-15  siggemannen: interesting why he was invited to World Cup?
Sep-08-15  sonia91: <siggemannen> He won the European Small Nations Championship in 2014 (FIDE Zonal 1.1 Championship):

  alexmagnus: Actually it is interesting. Of nine invitees in the World Cup, Weidenkeller is by far the lowest rated (the next lowest is Durarbayli, one of the organizer's nominees, at 2621).

  OhioChessFan: I just saw <BIDMONFA's> post in new kibitzing, and came here to check out which game should be designated "Round Up", but I see I got beat by 2 years on that one.
