  • @EdDean - Weird. Good Catch. I had no idea how Levon Aronian got in there. I can only think that wikipedia made a mistake initially or I subconsciously put Aronian in there :). It's fixed now.

  • @xaisoft - Yeah, I was guessing wikipedia had it at some point and then it got removed. I was wondering if you maybe had some inside information :)
