Feb-27-06  WhiteSox: Certainly no need for Rustam to
choke Patrick Wolff here! This is
pretty much a clean sweep by Ilya.

Actually, why is there a body of
Sicilian theory (mostly referring
to the previous game with Benjamin)
that only seems to have been discovered by Ilya Gurevich?

I suspect it's just talent. That game
where he had to play ...f5 and
then even ...f4. He had no squares
at all except the d5 square for the
longest time - then went on to win.
He must have been worse there, tho.

Roly-poly dark squares,
Dark squares, dark squares,
Eat them up, yum.

  perfidious: A classic exploitation of dark-square weaknesses, which resembles a game between players of different classes.

  perfidious: <Howard: Whatever became of Ilya anyway ?>

Way I heard it, he went to NYU and made a pile in the stock market sometime thereafter.

Last time I saw Ilya, whom I knew well from New England events in the 1980s, was in summer 1993 in Greenwich Village at the shop once owned by Rossolimo.
