  OhioChessFan: Is Tata Steel a step forward in the quality of opposition he's faced?
Oct-22-12  waustad: He's been the opponent of two players who have been caught cheating. See:


It is also interesting that the most famous player involved in a cheating event was also called Sebastian. The slings and arrows of outrageous fortune:
