Congratulations old Beliavsky!
|Dec-17-12|| ||lost in space: Happy Birthday, Mr . Beljavski. I wish you a very big celebration next year :-)|
|Dec-17-12|| ||Kikoman: Happy Birthday GM Beliavsky! Best Wishes! :D|
|Dec-17-12|| ||talisman: happy birthday to one of the greats.|
|Dec-17-12|| ||brankat: Best wishes for Your Birthday!|
|May-17-13|| ||hellopolgar: So both Alexander Beliavsky and Anna Muzychuk are Ukrainian that emigrated to Slovenia. It seems that Slovenia is a lot richer than Ukraine. (GDP Per capita is 22,192 vs 7,598)|
|Dec-17-13|| ||waustad: He's the only one left in the top 100 (he's now tied for 100-101) who was born before I started school and one of the few left who was born before I started college. With baseball the last MLB player who was older than I was turned out to be Charlie Hough. In chess the last top 100 player older than me was Victor Korchnoi, but he was that for a lot of people. Time passes. Happy 60th!|
|Dec-17-13|| ||HeMateMe: A man of the Karpov era?|
|Apr-12-14|| ||Benzol: If they ever do a movie about him actor Orest Blajkevitch should be the one to play the part.|
|May-06-14|| ||Zugzwangovich: I always wondered why Yasser Seirawan frequently called him "Big Al" in the pages of Inside Chess. In a photo of the USSR team at the 1982 Olympiad he looked rather slender and not very tall; only the diminutive Tal was shorter.|
|Dec-17-14|| ||kamagong24: happy birthday!|
|Feb-06-15|| ||redwhitechess: Beliavky won HIT Open Chess 2015 in Slovenia. Brief write up, interesting diagram dan photos:|
|Jun-11-15|| ||Appaz: Some interesting words from Beliavsky on old and new players.|
|Jun-11-15|| ||perfidious: <Appaz> Nice read on Big Al the Dinosaur.|
|Oct-15-15|| ||The Kings Domain: Appaz: Thanks for sharing that nice interview. It's nice to see Beliavsky still going strong. I remember fondly playing and studying his games back when he was one of the top Chess masters and it brings back good memories. It's nice to know he kicked the asses of younger players. Personality has a lot to do with Chess as much as skill.|
|Dec-17-15|| ||diagonal: Happy birthday, Alexander Beliavsky!
At age of 62, he is still a regular and uncompromising competitor in various chess events and (as of December 2015) only 23 ELO points close to the Top-100 of the World!
The biography, missing his notables international invitation tournament wins, deserves a refresher. I made an attempt:
|Dec-17-15|| ||eternaloptimist: Happy birthday to Big Al! It's good to see that he is still playing in chess tournaments & still performing at a very high level!|
|Dec-17-15|| ||Eduardo Bermudez: Only people like Keres, Korchnoi and Beliavsky have won nine world champions !|
|Dec-17-15|| ||Howard: Please clarify the above comment.|
|Dec-17-15|| ||TheFocus: Happy birthday, Big Al!|
|Dec-17-15|| ||Eduardo Bermudez: KERES won against: Capablanca, Alekhine, Euwe, Botvinnik, Smyslov, Petrosian, Tal, Spassky and Fischer.
KORCHNOI: Botvinnik, Smyslov, Petrosian, Tal, Spassky, Fischer, Karpov, Kasparov and Carlsen.
BELIAVSKY: Smyslov, Petrosian, Tal, Spassky, Karpov, Kasparov, Anand, Kramnik and Carlsen.|
|Dec-17-15|| ||cunctatorg: Grandmaster Alexander Beliavsky was the King, the dominating figure, at the Chess Olympiad in Thessaloniki 1984; his performance there was not only outstanding but dominating; playing as the top board of the (back then) USSR Olympic Chess Team, he crushed all opposition in formidable and striking ways!!... |
His performance defines for me the meaning of the "title": Super Grandmaster...
|Mar-08-16|| ||waustad: His draw in the first round of the Reykjavik Open 2016 against Bardur Orn Birkisson ight have been be the biggest upset of the round if it weren't for Nils Grandelius losing to Einar Valdimarsson. Swiss gambits have been known to work before, so perhaps these players will be in the mix at the end.|
