Nov-22-10  wordfunph: how do you pronounce Vovk?
Nov-23-10  Petrosianic: I don't.
Aug-29-11  waustad: That is a name where maybe Annie K should be consulted.
Premium Chessgames Member
  alexmagnus: You pronounce it just as it is written :).
Aug-30-11  Jason Frost: The "e" is of course pronounced the usual Ukrainian (same as Russian, like in Nepo...) way.

Or if it's easier to read, Andrey can also be spelled Andrei.

The other letters are same as in common english

Jul-28-13  jancotianno: Nice result in the Andorra Open.
Jan-13-16  iking: A Vovk vs Lenderman, 2014
