|Jul-01-17|| ||Al2009: Last (July 2017) fide rating of GM Walter Rodríguez Arencibia is NOT 2201, as wrongly indicated here. 2201 is the last fide rating of the younger GONZALES Walter Arencibia, who was born in 1988. Last fide rating of GM Arencibia (born in 1967) is 2506. You confused the 2 Arencibia...|
|Jul-01-17|| ||Stonehenge: Thanks, I have entered the right FIDE player card for him. It may take a while but the rating will be corrected automatically.|
