An interview with Erwin L'Ami about being Topalov's second.
|Jan-20-11|| ||ketchuplover: Tough loss to Carlsen today.|
|Mar-12-11|| ||Penguincw: < ketchuplover: Tough loss to Carlsen today. >|
Well,you have to consider that Carlsen was the highest rated player in the tournament (and the world) at the time and L'Ami is the lowest rated.Plus,Carlsen took on the white pieces.
|Mar-11-12|| ||waustad: Search engines always mess up trying to find this guy. FIDE keeps trying to tell me that he doesn't exist. I was looking because I saw that there is a player named Alina L'Ami who played him in Reykjavik, who plays for the Roumanian federation. I wondered if they were married.|
|Mar-11-12|| ||SimonWebbsTiger: @<wausted>
Alina and Erwin are indeed married.

|Apr-01-13|| ||FairyPromotion: An interesting tweet by GM L'Ami:
|Apr-05-13|| ||waustad: He won today on his 28th birthday in the Bundesliga, playing for SG Solingen against IM Hirneise, Tobias (2448).|
|Aug-13-13|| ||Karpova: Alina l'Ami: <“It is official: Erwin l’Ami will be sleeping on the balcony tonight after winning against his own wife!” It might sound like a funny remark to you but trust me, I was not in such a cheerful mood. After a couple of hours though, I learned to be more generous and lent a blanket to my shriveling husband…>|

|Apr-05-14|| ||Penguincw: Happy 29th birthday to GM Erwin L'Ami!|
|Mar-17-15|| ||chancho: Yup, you can see it...
|Mar-17-15|| ||ketchuplover: Kudos on victory in Iceland!|
|Mar-18-15|| ||Penguincw: Congrats to L'Ami for winning the Reykjavik Open (2015). He was stunning, as he won his first 3 games, drew the next, and then won 5 straight (the later 5 was against 2650 opposition, including top seed Mamedyarov). These 5 wins allowed him to clinch sole first with a round to spare. He did lose his last game against Eljanov however, who finished in 2nd. Libiszewski also won his last round game to finish tied with Eljanov 8/10, half a point back of L'Ami. 11 finished half a point back of them, and 17 a further half point back.|
Entering as the 11th seed, his rating was 2605, but he has now gained 26.8 rating points with his 2826 TPR.
|Mar-23-15|| ||diagonal: Congrats to simpatico Erwin L'Ami for his <biggest career achievement> so far, winning the traditional & strong <Open at Reykjavik 2015> outright. Some further bio stuff :)|
Erwin is husband of Alina, one of the strongest chess couples (ELO 5.000 plus now again in April rating list *together*), she's also a regular contributor to the chess community with pictorial reports from chess tournaments all over the planet
|May-23-15|| ||Penguincw: Congrats to Erwin L'Ami for winning the Rabat Blitz Marathon with a score of 18.5/21, half a point ahead of top seed Mamedyarov (who he defeated with black in R5).|
