Mar-31-16  TheFocus: Happy birthday, Zoltan Gyimesi.
Mar-31-17  WickedPawn: I still remember Zoltan's shocking win over A. Sharyazdanov in round 11 of the World's U20 in Medellin 1996 to finish tied 3rd (won by Emil Sutovsk). I happened to be roaming by their table when they shook hands.

Sharyazdanov was the current European U20 champion and gave Sutovski his only defeat in Medellin.
