|Sep-06-13|| ||Thanh Phan: A few others have access to both languages, Hoang Thanh Trang is one, lost one of my link pages somehow, had a few more|
|Sep-06-13|| ||twinlark: The wikipedia article in Polish adds to the linguistic intrigue.|
|Sep-06-13|| ||John Abraham: This guy is very exotic looking|
|Sep-06-13|| ||waustad: The search capacity on chess365 seems to fail for him. Here is the actual link to it for anybody interested: http://www.365chess.com/players/Cao...
Somehow with naming issues dealing with both Vietnamese and Magyar, neither word seems to have made it into their database as his last name.|

|Nov-24-17|| ||Joshka: Isn't there a Cao who is suing the St. Louis Chess Club for sex discrimination?? He used to be a man then changed his identity to female?|
