  offramp: When he won the Armenian Championship they all sang, "Hovhannisyan the highest!"

BTW he looks bloody awful in that Brikenau shirt in the current picture...Change it! (Shirt or picture.)

Jan-30-12  JoergWalter: Just get him the shirt in his correct size ("skinny rabbit")
Premium Chessgames Member
  technical draw: A picture of him from the Dubai Open shows he hasn't improved his weight. I wonder if he has some health issues?
Jul-27-13  Xeroxx: Seems underweight.
