    There are a lot of Fide Masters, International Masters, Grandmasters and Supergrandmasters playing on ICC ... but do you know which handles they use ?

    It is fascinating trying to follow and understand their games.

    As an opening I have "OM" which is the handle Yasser Seirawan uses.

    Does anyone know any others ?

    Heliopolitanus = Jesse Kraai
    Smallville = Hikaru Nakamura
    Wolf = Georgi Kacheishvili [sp?]
    Psychik = Thomas Roussel-Roozman

    To get more names, just wait until a GM game is announced, then check the finger notes for that GM. Often the real name is given in the notes.

    Something thought in Mandarin Chinese, I suspect.

    How do you know that Pra Xis is not a horribly disgusting insult in Chinese?

    I'm pretty sure it's impossible to write or say 'pra' in chinese. in any chinese language. (don't know about other sino-tibetan languages though...)

    You can check out the nick by typing "finger" followed by the nick. Often, not always, the real name of the GM appears in the information they give.

    On a grammar note, the thread really should've been titled "Who's whom on ICC?" 😛
