  Jonathan Sarfati: Dr Guðmundur Pálmason (1928–2004) was one of Iceland's top geologists and a pioneer in his country's geothermal research as well, as one of their best chessplayers after Fridrik Olafsson He once visited my chess club as the guest of his former Olympiad team mate Arinbjorn Gudmundsson who has lived in Brisbane for many years.
Jun-11-13  JustAnotherPatzer: Hurrah for Iceland! The rest of the world could learn a lesson.
Jun-11-13  Aurora: Hann hvíli í friði!
Jun-11-13  waustad: Perhaps a wine pun can be found here somewhere based on his last name. Speaking of old plonk, maybe Italian Swiss Colony could lead to a pun for Fabiano Caruana.
