|Dec-28-03|| ||jaime gallegos: the schach archives of Lev Gutman are highly recommended to study chess. Anybody knows where can I found them on internet ? |
|Aug-17-04|| ||Kaspy2: I played with him for lower saxony championship 2004, where he was the only GM. But neither of us made it... |
|Jan-02-05|| ||Benzol: Lev Gutman
Born 26th September 1945 in Riga
Latvian Champion 1972.
|Aug-14-05|| ||fred lennox: For those who like flank openings with dash and daring play, this GM is worth taking a look. I often play so, and Gutman continues to be a model for my own playing.|
|Sep-26-06|| ||BIDMONFA: Lev Gutman|
|Sep-26-09|| ||whiteshark: Is he still citizen of Israel? According to his FIDE-card he is registered for the German Federation. Even German + English wiki-Bios differ here. Probably dual citizenship.|
His books, always on rare chess variants, are deeply researched (maybe his brand mark)
|Sep-26-12|| ||LoveThatJoker: Happy Birthday, GM Gutman!
|Aug-21-14|| ||kevin86: Too bad there's no picture. I wonder if he looks like Sydney Greenstreet. lol|
|Mar-30-15|| ||zanzibar: Wiki has his picture,
He shows up in Biel (1985) playing for Israel, but is currently German.
It would be nice if the bio could note this, and perhaps add the dates.
