  Honza Cervenka: This guy from Egypt was not bad. In 1951 he played in zonal tournament in Marianske Lazne and Praha (Marienbad and Prague) with quite interesting result +6=2-8 (very few draws). His play was pretty sharp. He was quite good in tactics and his result in tournament could have been much better with proper preparation in opening. By the way, I am going to submit all missing games from that tournament to the database as soon as possible.:-)
Jun-07-12  wordfunph: Sad, cheer up!
Apr-23-23  xmohamed: His name is not sad but Saad Zaghlol Basioni, both the double A and GH in his name have no equal in English. سعد زغلول بسيوني
Apr-24-23  stone free or die: <xmohamed> Google translate gives it as

<Saad Zaghloul Basiuni>

It has the double-a and gh as you recommend. Is this also an acceptable transliteration?
