(Mängija, Estonia, 2008, 53 min, Portrait)
Synopsis: A documentary about the gifted Estonian chess grandmaster, Jaan Ehlvest. Playing chess is his only income, but above all, it is his calling. In the Soviet Union, Jaan belonged to the chess elite, in New York he has to take part in low-budget competitions, where the winner gets 200 dollars. This documentary poses the question: will Ehlvest break through one more time, will he reach the top again? Through this journey we will begin to see chess player Jaan Ehlvest as a person. The Player tells a story about being yourself in the conditions of social and individual upheaval.

|May-25-15|| ||TheFocus: <Recently, I've had a lot of critics saying I should concentrate more during the game. But I'm usually very nervous, that's why I walk around. Chess is a horrible game. I mean, the game is very nice, but for a profession it's something else. It's not easy to concentrate, you know? If you try to over-concentrate, you can break down. It must be a balance. In American chess, concentration is not so important> - Jaan Ehlvest.|
|Sep-20-17|| ||diagonal: At Zagreb Interzonal 1987 (Korchnoi won at age of 58), Ehlvest finished second / third together with Seirawan and thus qualified for the following FIDE Candidate matches, Jaan Ehlvest then was still an IM!! For that achievement, Ehlvest was awarded 1987 the FIDE GM title automatically.|
In the GMA World Cup cycle 1988/89 Ehlvest placed fourth behind only Garry Kasparov, Anatoly Karpov, and Valery Salov (25 top players participating, point scoring system).
Ehlvest won at Reggio Emilia 1989/90, as clear first ahead of 2. Ivanchuk and 3. Karpov, followed by 4./5. Ribli and Andersson, etc., his maybe biggest success.
Estonian sportsman of the year in 1987 and 1989, a very rare distinction for a chess player.
