CHERNIN, Alexander M.
|Feb-19-06|| ||WTHarvey: Here are some puzzles from Alexander's games: http://www.wtharvey.com/cher.html|
|Aug-24-06|| ||clampolo: I love the pirc and noone plays it better than Chernin. His book, Pirc Alert, is my favorite book on any opening. Hopefully he writes more.|
|Mar-06-07|| ||Atking: <clampolo: I love the pirc and noone plays it better than Chernin. His book, Pirc Alert, is my favorite book on any opening. Hopefully he writes more.> A very clever way to explain an opening. I like this book too. <lopium: Already stopped to play.> He still play semi rapid tournament as Corsica with good results. As chess trainer he is really wonderfull.|
|Jul-26-08|| ||bravado1: I always thought he's Hungarian. Takes one to know one.|
|Mar-06-10|| ||wordfunph: 1990 U.S. Championship in Jacksonville: GM Alexander Chernin came to Jacksonville to give a well-paid but very poorly attended simul. Somehow, his six or seven opponents stressed him so much that he decided to sit out the U.S. Open.|
happy birthday GM Chernin!
|Mar-06-13|| ||JPi: Good points Atkin!|
|Aug-06-14|| ||Refused: Was he the one coaching both Caruana and Giri?|
|Aug-14-14|| ||docbenway: Caruana praised him highly in his quick chat with Daniel King while at the Tromso Olympics. These interviews are great, especially Melanie Ohme, what a doll!|
|Mar-06-16|| ||TheFocus: Happy birthday, Alexander Chernin.|
|Mar-06-16|| ||eternaloptimist: Happy birthday to GM Chernin!|
|Mar-06-16|| ||Zaiyetz: A bit unlucky about the number of games in the database...|
|Mar-06-16|| ||gars: Happy Birthday, Grandmaster Chernin!
And let's not forget that March 9 is Bobby Fischer's Day!

That is an awesome opening book! Unfortunately the Pirc opening itself has fallen out of favor.
