FOCUS ON EUROPE: SPAIN: Olufemi Sharaibi (Oris).

Hmm, I think we have seen this game face before. Aha, yes, that is the indomitable Oris that we all know. Oris is a former National Chess Champion of Nigeria and a Chess Olympiad veteran for Nigeria.

PICS: In Barcelona (Feb.2009) with his club. Playing in the finals of the Catalunya Rapid-play Team championships, wearing a red Cardigan - a Tiger Woods kind of "opponents beware" trademark if you ask me. And hey, is that Frederic Friedel of the Chessbase sitting next to Oris? Nope . A look alike of course.

Relaxation time? Not quite, Oris is trying to see if he can find that elusive passed pawn in the beautiful sky of Spain.
