Vitaly L Kunin
|Aug-10-08|| ||whiteshark: Vitaly Kunin was born in Moscow, Russia the 2nd of October 1983. His daddy taught him chess at the age of 4 and Vitaly later became a Champion of Russia under 10. In the year 2001 he moved to Darmstadt in Germany with his family and now he plays under the German flag. |
Kunin was awarded the Grandmaster title (GM) in 2006. He is the winner of many open tournaments. He became second in the German Championship 2006 and got 4th place in 2008. He also plays in 3 different chess leagues, the German, French and the Austrian leagues.
Kunin has won against several famous Grandmaster colleges such as Korchnoi, Yusupov, Jakovich and Gustafsson. But his most prestigious victory is from rapid chess in Mainz where he defeated Alexei Shirov as black. Kunins highest elo is 2538 which he got on the January list of 2008.
Kunin usually plays 1.Nf3 or 1.d4 with white and as black he plays a wide range of different openings from the Sicilian and the Benoni and to the Queens gambit. His style is sharp and many of his games become complicated.
