1.e4 e6 2.Nd2

I read somewhere he got thrown out of the Botvinnik school for playing the Cochrane gambit.
|Nov-29-09|| ||Red October: no kibitzing for the POTD today ?|

|Nov-29-10|| ||wordfunph: trivia on GM Lev Psakhis..
+ GM Lev Psakhis claimed that he reached world-class status by memorizing the games of Bobby Fischer.
+ GM Lev Psakhis does not call himself a chess fanatic though he says that he does not grow weary even after many hours of playing chess provided he has a comfortable chair and nice pop-music playing. Psakhis grew a thick beard which he says his lucky charm, which is
probably so, as ever since he has never come worse than third in a chess tournament!
+ At Aruba 1992, GM Lev Psakhis defeated all three Polgar sisters.
happy 52nd birthday GM Psakhis!
|Sep-20-11|| ||wordfunph: just read from Chess U.K. mag that GM Psakhis <is dangerously ill and awaiting a liver transplant>, hope he feels better soon.|
|Nov-27-11|| ||ketchuplover: Due out 2-1-12 is Advanced Chess Tactics.
Get well soon Lev.
|Nov-29-12|| ||lost in space: Is Lev well after the liver transplantation?|
|Nov-29-12|| ||SimonWebbsTiger: Lev is, touch wood, in far better health and on the mend now, the last I heard.|
|Nov-29-12|| ||Domdaniel: Lev - my contemporary - was close to death a year ago, after picking up lethal diseases in a Russian blood transfusion. Now, after a liver transplant in Israel - he's reportedly much better.|
Nobody has ever written with more insight on the French ... but hey, staying alive matters too.
Keep on going, Lev.
|Nov-29-12|| ||perfidious: <Dom> Insight, leavened with a nice dash of humour.|
Psakhis' books are worthwhile reading.
We played two events together in July 1992, but never met. That would have been enjoyable indeed.
|Nov-29-12|| ||parisattack: <Domdaniel...Nobody has ever written with more insight on the French ... but hey, staying alive matters too.>|
Yes, awesome books on the French! Good to hear he is recovering.
