Kibitzer's Corner
Jan-10-06  chesscrazy: Congrats on winning the Reggio Emilia International.
Jan-10-06  Laskerfan82: I enjoy Landa's games; he's a very exciting attacking player not afraid to make intuitive sacrifices. Reminiscent of his compatriots Tal and Shirov.
Jan-13-06  BIDMONFA: Konstantin Landa

LANDA, Konstantin

Jun-30-07  Bridgeburner: Landa has jumped from outside the top hundred into number 41 on the July 2007 rating list, although he was 38th in January 2003.
Jul-02-07  arunjangity: another 61-point grabber, like navara...hope he doesn't lose those points as fast as navara did!

i think fide goofed though...they don't show his rating between 2003-07 unless you look at the graph. might have something to do with the adams goof too.

  technical draw: So little kibitzing for a super GM. We need a Bio.

  whiteshark: He's recently doing the a superb job on live commentary in English together with Anna Sharevich.
Aug-31-11  polarmis: Akopian mentions him as having been at the Botvinnik/Kasparov school, so he'd have been among the top-12 juniors in the USSR at one point:

He commented from the scene for ChessPro in Dortmund (as he seems to do most years) - and had some interesting comments about computers (also a good photo there if anyone at ChessGames wants to add it to his profile!):

Aug-31-11  SimonWebbsTiger: Konstantin mentioned today that he spoke with Grischuk before the game with Feller. <the Gris> said he was a bit worried about playing him. Konstantin made a passing remark about Feller: " a computer player."
Aug-31-11  SimonWebbsTiger: apropos Anna Sharevich, Landa's co-host....

An unforgettable song by the lovely Belarus WGM beauty
