Kibitzer's Corner
Jan-24-09  WhiteRook48: why's he rated 2273 if he loses against Stepak, Hertneck, and Sutovsky?
Feb-05-09  WhiteRook48: he won no games, so why does it say his winning percentage 12.5%? Or am I looking at it the wrong way?
Feb-05-09  thebribri8: Draws count as half a point. Therefore, Mashian has (1/2)/4 which is 12.5 percent.
Mar-08-09  Mibelz: He, as Houshang Mashian, played thrice for Iran in Chess Olympiads at Munich 1958, Tel Aviv 1964, and Siegen 1970.
