Kibitzer's Corner
Apr-21-09  number 23 NBer: Here he is: the player who stunned Nakamura in Toronto last weekend.
Sep-14-09  alexrawlings: Is this guy a GM?
Sep-14-09  felixd: No he's not, but he is actually a strong IM.
Sep-15-09  alexrawlings: Thanks <felixd> ... it seems strange that his peak rating was 2612 yet he's not a GM. Maybe it's a mistake and that's not his actual peak rating.
