It would be interesting to know, if Latvian Top-Players today are playing the Latvian Gambit, one of my favorite openings.

Krokops is a lawyer by profession, so I presume that he gave up full-time chess for his legal career.

Sep-28-13  tjipa: Actually, he has recently played in some chess events in Latvia, yet no great results and no signs of serious returning.
