A chess FM follower in the Internet Chess Club (ICC) live commentary raised an interesting question about why GM Loek Van Wely (2681) playing in the Corus GM Group A Tournaments held at Wijk aan Zee, Holland but GM Ivan Cheparinov (2713) from Bulgaria who is 32 points higher then Loek are playing in GM Group B tournament. The commentator said that the answer is simply because Van Wely is Dutchmen!!!
