Bio (in English):

Aug-11-09  wordfunph: "Here is some good advice for all women who cannot get a man: just join a chess club (any chess club will do). Even if you are as ugly as hell, and have a bottom like an elephant, it does not matter. Success is guaranteed." GM Karel Van der Weide

Happy Birthday GM Karel!
