[what is this?]

Boris Samoilovich Vainshtein, pseudonymously known as "Ferzberi", was born in Odessa on May 19, 1907; he grew up in Ukraine and Uzbekistan, moving to Moscow in 1935.1 Vainshtein was a high-ranking Soviet NKVD and chess official and a good player, now best remembered as a friend and supporter of David Bronstein; he helped Bronstein write his classic book on the Zurich Candidates (1953) tournament,2 and also authored a number of chess books himself. He died in Moscow in 1993.1

The fake player name "Bruce Fairsbury" was inspired by Vainshtein's nickname and real name.
