What's up with Kamsky

So Mr. Kamsky is getting famous again.

People have been expecting him to show his true nature after a long silence.
Many people were stunned when his name suddenly appeared again in chess world.
He was actually very famous a little more than a decade ago
In his teen age, he had beaten a lot of big names such as Nigel Short, Ivanchuk, Anand, Shirov, Kramnik and even Mr. Kasparov (only onced though)
He was the youngest player ever to be rated in FIDE's world top ten in 1990.
However, he suddenly left the competitive chess world in 1995 to continue his study in medicine.

After 9 years, he came back in 2004 to do extremely well in his first competition.
He continued his excellent run and won more competitions after that.
Today, being the lowest rated among 6 players, he is leading in Sofia, in a Super-GM tournament with +3 -0 =1 after beating Anand 2 days ago. If he beats the world champion, Mr Topalov tomorrow, that might be his best result in the first round of a Super-GM tournament ever.

Good luck Gata Kamsky... I always love your games
