Kibitzer's Corner
Aug-10-03  Emil Tyson: Tony Miles played a memorable game against Vaisser in the 1998 Olympiad. It was so memorable because it was so singular.
Aug-10-03  PVS: I cannot locate it in the database.
Aug-10-03  Emil Tyson: Neither could I. I made a list of ten games and four of them are not there.

Aug-17-03  Emil Tyson: Much thanks, morphynoman2., will you be making a page for this game or should I link this page to my game collection?
Jul-05-04  northernsoul: It seems that game was played between ARDAMAN Miles and Vaisser, not Anthony Miles...
Jul-05-04  Ziggurat: Thanks <morphy> - that really was one of the most outlandish games I have seen.
Jul-05-04  grozny: The Miles-Vaisser game is now in the database: A Miles vs Vaisser, 1998

Interesting game.

Mar-22-05  WMD: What information have you got?
Premium Chessgames Member
  Benzol: <WMD>
Born March 5th 1949 in Alma Ata. IM in 1982 and GM in 1985. 3rd= at Sochi 1982 (category 11 tourney) and 1st= at Sochi 1983 (category 11 tourney).
Mar-05-06  BIDMONFA: Anatoli Vaisser

VAISSER, Anatoly

Apr-08-09  arnaud1959: This Guy is still playing in the French championship.
Apr-08-09  WhiteRook48: oh, he is?
Feb-19-11  wordfunph: "GM Anatoli Vaisser is probably the greatest ever expert in the Four Pawns Attack."

- GM Mikhail Golubev

Dec-01-13  Eastfrisian: Congrats to the Senior-World-Champion title.
Premium Chessgames Member
  Penguincw: Congratz to Anatoli Vaisser for winning the 2014 Senior Championship (65+). He finished with 8/11 and edged out Yuri Balashov, Viktor Kupreichik and Herman Van Riemsdijk. 13 others finished no more than 1 point back.

At 2531, he's the top seed, and I have to say, the top seed winning a Swiss style tournament doesn't occur as often as I think.

Also, this is Vaisser's 3rd Senior Championship (2010, 2013 and 2014), joining the late Janis Klovans as the only 2 people to have won 3 titles.

Nov-14-14  sonia91: He won the Russian Championship in 1982.
