Jul-11-05  farrooj: Isn't there a list of banned drinks by FIDE?
Sep-05-05  WTHarvey: Here is a little collection of puzzles from Dmitri's early games:
Sep-05-05  SambaDanne:

Lets assume that is weight is 70 kg... If he drinks more than 132 cans during a game, hes dead.

Sep-05-05  BaranDuin: <ughaibu: Caffeine alters the perception of time so that, in effect, a player has more thinking time after drinking coffee. I'm surprised it's not banned in FIDE events.>

As we all know, "time is an illusion, lunchtime doubly so."

Dec-21-05  billiejoelover21: i wonder if that redbull will kill his brain cells?
Jan-29-06  rKa: He actually also plays Magic: The Gathering (a huge trading card game) very well, appearing in the top8 of a 1000+player tournament in Hasselt/Belgium.

  Caissanist: Reinderman is a truly amazing photographer, at least to judge by the photographs here on Chessgames. He seems to have a remarkable knack for capturing a player's personality in a photograph.
Dec-24-06  Nibiru: I drew once against Reinderman in Arnhem (Holland) but that was only a quick game, not official.
Dec-02-07  bystander: Dimitri Reinderman won the Cultural Village Tournement (Wijk aan Zee). The winner of this tournement plays in Chorus 2008, group-C.

Johan Hut wrote an interesting article about Dimitri Reinderman's results in 2007 (Dutch).

Sep-20-09  Gryz: Last round in the Dutch Championships. Reinderman (2nd) plays with white against Giri (1st place). Reinderman still has a chance to win the championship, but he must beat Giri.

He then plays a 14-move draw. With white.

What a sissy.

  Richard Taylor: But then he avoided a possible loss and came second, which is a great achievement, and he gained rating points.

  Richard Taylor: By the way - far more useful than coffee etc is in fact is any source of vitamin B - especially including B12.

It greatly (or noticeably) increases alertness and other things - in fact it enhances one's libido!

The vitamin B complex tablets are good or we have marmite in NZ and there is spirulina... It (B vitamins and B12) are or is not a drug(s). The point is that it is or or some of the vitamins are basically catalysts and speed reactions in cells. They help synthesis of certain proteins etc If you are not vegetarian also have a good amount of red or other meat and beans etc or beans and alfalfa sprouts etc if you are a vegetarian.

Some people have difficulty absorbing say B12 and have injections or take tablets. (I do, and I use tablets from the supermarket, and I notice the effect on my playing ability almost immediately if I am not tired.).) But probably everyone has some degree of absorption difficulty - so it is enhancing - increases alertness etc And some orange juice of consumption of fruit is also good vitamin C helps to work with other vitamins and things....

Coffee, tea and other caffeine sources do also but the effect of caffeine peaks and then it is not so useful.

Of course a good sleep before a game is important if you can sleep.

NOTE - all substances taken in excess can be harmful. So excessive vitamin B and C (while not as harmful as say A etc) can also be deleterious. In great excess, anything, including B vitamins, can be quite harmful.

Apr-05-11  zdigyigy: When I started playing I smoked like a fiend...

  Phony Benoni: Let him have his pleasures. When your day job is caring for Santa's flock, you need a break.
Premium Chessgames Member
  HeMateMe: I think Blitzen might beat him.

  Phony Benoni: Not at Classical.
Premium Chessgames Member
  HeMateMe: Are you tweaking my nose?

  FSR: <Phony Benoni: ... When your day job is caring for Santa's flock, you need a break.>

When Donner is blitzin' the results aren't pretty.

Jan-11-14  waustad: He is the one with purple hair at Tata Steel.
Jan-11-14  John Abraham: What year is the above photo from? 1998?
Jan-11-14  hellopolgar: "...He is a vegetarian...", well...
Aug-22-14  Ke2: Very colorful guy
Premium Chessgames Member
  Caissanist: Looks like Dmitri's got $10 coming to him:

  TheFocus: I think Santa Claus is the original Reinderman.
