From the 2002 Chess Olympiad

Ricardo Szmetan represented Barbados in the 2002 Olympiad.  I don't know whether he was related to Jorge Szmetan (born 1950), who drew Bobby Fischer in 1971 and who represented Argentina in several Olympiads.

I did not have the pleasure of knowing Ricardo, but many of my friends knew him well.

Ricardo was a specialist in the Czech Benoni. I'm going to try to find the PGN's from the norm tournaments of mine that he played in.
