Roger, the (im)posters writing style indicates a FIDE rating of about 2150-2200 but time will tell no doubt.

Leigh Strange was (and hopefully, still is) a real person, just not as strong a player as she appeared...
So Nick Down was impersonating a real person, and not just playing under a false, female, name as I always thought?

Those who haven't got a clue what this is about can read this (under the entry for Down, Nick). What it doesn't say is that he was only caught after being invited to play for the England Ladies team.
