  technical draw: The 3 Stooges:

Moe Horowitz
Curly Horowitz
Shemp Horowitz

Aug-19-07  sharkw: Kevin Spraggett (GM) and Grant Spraggett (don't know if he had a title, but was certainly at least FM strength).
Aug-19-07  Caissanist: <technical draw> The best information I have is that Curly and Shemp were patzers, Moe always beat up on them.
Aug-19-07  Caissanist: According to the FIDE web site, Grant Spraggett is indeed an FM.
Premium Chessgames Member
  technical draw: <Caissanist> Moe cheated. He would poke his opponents in the eye.
Premium Chessgames Member
  Tabanus: The brothers GM Simen Agdestein and FM Espen Agdestein. The sisters WGM Tatiana Kosintseva and WGM Nadezhda Kosintseva.
Dec-14-09  mack: <Benzol: Adam Hunt and Harriet Hunt>

Better late than never I guess: no relation!

Dec-14-09  Bratek: <WGM Jolanta Zawadzka and her brother <IM Stanislaw Zawadzki>
Dec-14-09  Landman: Asuka Nakamura and Hikaru Nakamura
Jan-04-10  Caissanist: Thanks to all for the additions. I wouldn't include the Nakamuras though, since Asuka Nakamura did not get a title before he stopped playing.
Jan-04-10  FHBradley: Petri Kekki, an IM, and his brother, Jorma Kekki, who is an FM.

  Tabanus: GM Andrey Vovk and GM Yuri Vovk.

GM David Berczes and IM Csaba Berczes. WGM Sabina Francesca Foisor and WFM Mihaela-Veronica Foisor.

Mar-27-10  Caissanist: IMs Jovanka Houska and Miroslav Houska.
Jun-28-10  Caissanist: 12-time Swiss champion Hans Johner was awarded the IM title in 1950. His brother, 6-time Swiss champion Paul F Johner, would probably have received it as well had he not died in 1938.
Jun-28-10  Caissanist: Alexey Alekhine (1888-1939) seems to have been quite a strong player, although nowhere near the level of his younger brother. He stayed in the USSR after Alexander's emigration and scored respectably in several Ukrainian championships. His best result was a tie for fourth in the 1925 Ukrainian championship; probably he would be considered IM strength today. He apparently died in August 1939, according to Bill Wall's website he was murdered.

Jul-13-11  Caissanist: IM Istvan Almasi is the older brother of GM (and current Hungarian #1) Zoltan Almasi.
Jan-23-14  siggemannen: Zhigalko brothers are both GMs
Aug-23-14  Lovuschka: Ton Timman has died at the age of 66 years, the KNSB reports.
