Are there any famous ones here? I just read the interesting thread

about meeting famous chess personalities.

My question is are there any famous people that play here? Chess personalities, or famous in other respects?

Famous Either in the world of chess (Gm, book author, etc etc) OR even a noteworthy celebrity, politician, musician...

Of course I suppose anonymity is pretty much a requirement for those individuals anyway..

hello triangulator Maybe this is off subject a little - but since you posted ...
My wife and I have been looking for a new house - some of which have indoor pools - but they tend to be small.
What would you say is the minimum size for a pool for which you can have an enjoyable swim and a decent workout?
Realize this is off-chess, but I hope nobody will notice.

um well we trian for the olimpics( the fake ones but still hard to get into) and we practice in a 25m pool. but I do know some adults that come to our neighborhood pool( 20yards) I ( and they) find it very good. you need to be more specific, I do morning practice in a 20 y pool, in general I would say you need 10-15 yards to be able to do laps/have fun- you need go to a pool and see what is good for you measure the pools at the houses and go swim that distance at a real pool- this will give you an idea of how it will be- if you don't want to do that 10-15 y is probably fine for adults, hope this helps- sorry, I am not very good an grammar or spelling( the funny thing is I am good at chess and a "A" student in everything else!)

There is a famous basketball player in Israel, Oded Katash, who plays a lot of chess of ICC. He was formerly a European champion and European Player of the Year, and was drafted by the NY Knicks, but got injured and had to stop playing ball for a while.

But I'm not aware of any celebs here on GK ...

Elvin Hayes Known as “the Big E”; Overall number one pick of the 1968 NBA draft; three-time All-NBA first team (1975,77,79); 1978 Finals MVP; 12-time NBA all-star (1969-80); named to NBA's 50 Greatest Players; 6th leading scorer in NBA history with 27,313 points and 4th leading rebounder with 16,279; member of NBA Hall of Fame.

I'm not a big sports trivia nut, but that's pretty impressive.

I'm pretty sure more than 10 people know who he is.
