I refuse to believe that is a name. You say it, then tell me it's a name.

You say it, then tell me it's a name.There are two Poobalasingams on the FIDE rating list here (http://ratings.fide.com/seek.phtml?idcode=&name=Poobalasingam&offset=0) and on the ECF rating list here (http://grading.bcfservices.org.uk/getplayers.php?players=Poobalasingam).

I wonder if they've thought about naming their offspring "Grand".

Round 4 Wohl plays GM Radulski 2539

Radulski won; the game was pretty feisty but I think the GM was better from the early middlegame on.
