[what is this?]
|Gregory Serper was born in Tashkent, in the former Uzbek Soviet Socialist Republic of the Soviet Union (present Uzbekistan). At age 6, he learned to play chess from his grandfather. In 1985, at age 16, he started studies at Moscow's famous Botvinnik-Kasparov Chess School.|
In 1992, as a grandmaster member of the Uzbekistan team, Serper won the silver medal in the 30th Chess Olympiad.
In January 1996 he moved with his family to the United States. In 1999, Serper won the World Open tournament after drawing an Armageddon playoff game as Black against Boris Gulko, who had been one of nine players who had tied with Serper in the main event. In the same year, he advanced to the finals of the U.S. Chess Championship by defeating Alex Yermolinsky in the semifinals, but lost in the finals to Gulko.

|Apr-24-04|| ||Jim Bartle: I don't know much about Serper, except for a great game in 93 against NIkolaidis, filled with sacrifices. I think Larry Christiansen rated it second or third best attacking games of the 90s, after Kasparov-Topalov 99. Unfortunately I don't see that game included here. |
|Jun-07-04|| ||MoonlitKnight: I have now uploaded the famous game from '93 where he sacrifices all (!) his pieces, and another very interesting game between the same two players that occured the next year. |
|Jun-07-04|| ||poktirity: Which two players? |
|Jun-07-04|| ||poktirity: Well I know Serper is one of them =) |
|Jun-07-04|| ||ruylopez900: http://www.chessbase.com/newsdetail...
Thanks <Moonlit>, I was just looking for that game =D.
<poktirity> The game was played against Nikolaidis.
|Jun-07-04|| ||poktirity: I can't find them here :/ |
|Jun-07-04|| ||MoonlitKnight: <potktirity> All the uploaded games must be approved by the administration at chessgames.com first. The games should appear within a week. |
|Jun-08-04|| ||ruylopez900: <Moonlit><pok> As of today it has been uploaded. |
|Sep-14-06|| ||BIDMONFA: Grigory Serper|
|Feb-03-08|| ||DarthStapler: This guy plays on ICC sometimes I think|
|Dec-12-08|| ||freeman8201: Serper, won the WA State Championship in 2008. I believe he lives in Washington now|
|Sep-02-09|| ||kramputz: He's got the shortest bio. It that all?|
|Sep-02-09|| ||whiteshark: <kramputz> It's reduced to the max. :D|
|Sep-02-09|| ||whiteshark: <MoonlitKnight> It's Serper vs I Nikolaidis, 1993 !!!|
|Sep-14-10|| ||wordfunph: Dortmund 1993: Game between GMs Vladimir Kramnik and Gregory Serper ended on the 27th move. "I should have resigned on the 18th move but was afraid that spectators wouldn't understand." Serper was quoted.|
|Sep-14-12|| ||Llawdogg: Happy Birthday!|
|Sep-23-12|| ||blade2012: What an injustice! An interesting (and sad)article by Grigory Serper:|
|Jan-20-14|| ||Wyatt Gwyon: Looks like GM Serper is mixed up in a bit of a kerfuffle. |
|Jan-20-14|| ||perfidious: Just read the article posted by <blade2012>.|
Sad commentary on life when one was not among the favoured in Soviet days.
|Mar-12-17|| ||Dionysius1: Yes, very sad. Two lessons from it: in the old days USSR only did what it believed was good for the country/regime, not what was good for an individual, or what was just. Justified of course by the claim that individuals should be glad to have their interests sacrificed to further the predestined progress of the state on behalf of its inhabitants.
And the second one: politicians come and go, officials are here to stay.|
|Mar-12-17|| ||Dionysius1: In the end GM Serper did get to play in the World Juniors, in 1988, when he tied for 1-4 with Lautier, Ivanchuk and Gelfand, and came 3rd on tie-break.|
