|Apr-14-04|| ||Vischer: On the kibitzing on the Alexander (Nenashev) Graf page, some people said Kramnik's real name is Sokolov, but he changed his name to Kramnik. This isn't him is it? |
|Apr-14-04|| ||BiLL RobeRTiE: This guy seems a bit older than Kramnik. |
|Apr-15-04|| ||Vischer: good point. Kramnik was born in '75 I think. |
|Apr-15-04|| ||Lawrence: <Vischer>, Kramnik's grandfather was named Sokolov. He died when his son, Vladimir's father, was a boy. Grandma married again and Vlad's father, still just a boy, took the surname of his new stepfather, Kramnik. So Vlad's father was born Sokolov but changed his name to Kramnik. Vlad was never named Sokolov, hence didn't change his name. |
|Mar-14-07|| ||Marmot PFL: Is this guy still alive and living in California?|
|Dec-14-08|| ||whiteshark: He is married with Henrijeta Konarkowska Sokolov|
|Feb-28-09|| ||WhiteRook48: how could Kramnik be Solokov?|
|Oct-31-15|| ||zanzibar: There seem to be absolutely no photographs of this player to be found on the internet.|
Amazing if true...
I did come across a photograph with what I believe is a most beautiful Serbian chess set:
Check out the rooks on that board!
|Nov-01-15|| ||moronovich: <Check out the rooks on that board!>|
Lol! That is what I call a rook ;)
Must be really tiring to play rookendgames with these..
|May-01-20|| ||MacCathey: Wonder if he is related to the Russian American actor of the same name. He was in a movie with Edward G. Robinson and Joan Bennet. Scarlet Street.|
