Aug-28-11  hedgeh0g: <I play the Fred>

Rumours were circulating the internet. Naturally, I didn't believe them, so I had to come here and see for myself.

  eternaloptimist: <Penguincw> Actually u wished him happy birthday on the wrong day. Happy 47th birthday to GM burmakin! I don't remember ever hearing of him before but he gets my respect for having a 2568 rating. He plays the caro-kann as black very well! He has beaten several world-class players w/ it!:

  Messiah: I always thought - it seems, mistakenly - that he is a very old GM.
Premium Chessgames Member
  Breunor: Another Russian strong GM not well known (maybe outside of Caro-Kann enthusiasts) probably because he is Russian!
