Kibitzer's Corner
Jul-20-09  swordfish: This guy is going great guns at the Canadian Open. Looks like he beat Ganguly and Mikhalevski and drew Shirov and Adams!
Aug-10-09  theagenbiteofinwit: Not bad for an IM to finish ahead of Shirov at the Open. I predict he won't be an IM much longer.
Jul-14-13  BIDMONFA: Edward Porper

PORPER, Edward

Dec-16-18  Nosnibor: Despite his name he seems to have achieved a rich run of success in some of his results against strong players.
