  Are there 2 KK Chans? 

KK seemed to be in a number of places within a short period of time. 
It certainly was a busy few months for the Hong Kong based Malaysian 
International Arbiter who had a number of commitments to fulfill.

Nikolopoulos (left) and FIDE President Kirsan Ilyumzhinov at the 
Women's World Team Chess Championship 2015 in China.
