  refutor: dolmatov roolz!!1!
Feb-18-04  WMD: Born in 1959, GM in 1982, World Junior Champion in 1978. Career peak was fifth place in the Manila Interzonal in 1990 - he lost the ensuing Candidates match with Yusopov on a tie-break playoff.
Apr-16-04  hongisto24: Read Dvoretsky's books and they are filled with this guy's games...what happened to him? Unfulfilled potential? Or did he go the way of Kamsky?
Apr-17-04  Lawrence: <hongisto24>, check his list of games and you'll see that he's still around. Played a lot of games last year. Lost to Magnus Carlsen in 19 moves at the 2004 Aeroflot Festival, though.
Jun-18-04  ConLaMismaMano: He's playing in the World Championship against Moiseenko.

Feb-20-06  BIDMONFA: Sergey Dolmatov


Jan-13-08  MichAdams: <Why didn’t you talk to Dolmatov about it during the Olympiad?

It is necessary to remember that Sergey broke off his leg. He came to Turin in spite of the pain because he thought that he would help the team. Moreover, it was late to tell something in Turin. The open conflict wouldn’t have been helpful. >

Ah, sorry to hear about him losing a leg.

  whiteshark: No games between 2006 and 2008, and only one for 2005? What's the story behind?
Apr-18-09  Open Defence: the only one to play a game of chess 6 years before he was born ??

  Eggman: Dolmatov's bio omits that he qualifed for the Candidates through the 1990 Manila interzonal, then was eliminated in the first round of the Candidates by Yusupov, in a close match that went into extra games:
