Kibitzer's Corner
Aug-18-08  Caissanist: Longtime Peruvian FM who decided to remain in Spain after playing in the 2004 Olympiad there. His young son Cristhian then qualified for the Peruvian Olympic team in 2006, and stayed in Spain with his father after playing in the Olympiad in Italy. The father has improved considerably, and the son tremendously, since moving to Spain.
