Kibitzer's Corner
Oct-03-03  Phoenix: Possibly the happiest man alive right now!
Oct-03-03  Benjamin Lau: Indeed. His ELO probably rose by at least 50 points, maybe 100. I don't know the formula. ;-)
Oct-03-03  Diggitydawg: I didn't know much about him so I went on chessbase and found out he's a 41 yr old Israeli. There's a picture of him in the link provided (along with some cheesecake pictures of some female players. His picture is 4th from the bottom.
May-21-05  WTHarvey: Here are some puzzles from Alexander's games:
Sep-09-05  shortsight: No one care to drop by for the player of the day? No even Huzman himself care?!
Premium Chessgames Member
  Eggman: I believe this man also works as a trainer, for example for 17-year-old Canadian grandmaster Mark Bluvshtein.
Sep-09-05  alexandrovm: I will, after all he did won over Kasparov one time.
Sep-09-05  iron maiden: It's kind of funny that Kasparov's crushed Huzman in a simultaneous exhibition, yet Huzman has the plus score at head-to-head encounters.
Sep-09-05  AzaleaCastle: Diggity, thanks for the link. Note to self: find out where some of these ladies are playing and join that tournament pronto ;-)...
Oct-24-08  Billy Vaughan: A very good try against Carlsen: Huzman vs Carlsen, 2008
Oct-26-08  Bobsterman3000: This guy has done a decent job at the Euro Club Cup. He earned draws against Karjakin and Mamedyarov and had some chances against Carlsen, but couldn't press his wild attack home to victory...

Huzman,Alexander 2575 - Zvjaginsev,Vadim 2545

I'm not sure I understand the final sacrifice, 49. Rh6. If black takes it, then Kf6, but I don't know how to proceed from there.

  wordfunph: from Boris Gelfand's Positional Decision Making in Chess..

<Alex Huzman goes to a dentist called Rubinstein. Once I prodded him, asking why he did not go to Tal's son, who is also a dentist and lives in the same town as Alex. "I am a bit afraid of his style. It is better to stay with Rubinstein.>

  perfidious: Maybe Tal fils emulates the style of Tal pere as a mature player.
