Oct-09-13  paavoh: I had forgotten about him, one of the promising Finnish players in the 1990's.

  Penguincw: Happy Birthday to the POTD: Olli Salmensuu.
Oct-09-14  NightKnight: Ahem, 36th if I count correctly.
Oct-09-14  waustad: His last rated games were in 2005. A search on his name got an ICC page where he seems to have given up chess in 2005 and become very religious.
Oct-09-19  paavoh: He seems to have worked (at least in 2017) for a member of the Finnish parliament.
