I am amazed every day by just how many players' games you have, including obscure ones like this one. How did your site come to have positions from all these players?
|Apr-17-05|| ||WTHarvey: <Abaduba> Thx! I go thru a bunch of games. :-) It's getting to be a morning ritual to pull up chessgames.com first thing and check out the 'GM of the Day'. To be sure, all soon to be GMs have plenty of beautiful combinations early in their career. It's nice to capture some of those brilliancies. |
|Jun-29-05|| ||Giearth: Dear <chessgames.com>, I'm submitting one of Yehuda's game I think you don't have yet: (By the way, I found the pgn from chesslab.com).|

|Jun-29-05|| ||chancho: This guy is a deaf mute, and a pretty strong Grandmaster.|
|Nov-18-05|| ||atripodi: <This guy is a deaf mute> How does he offer a draw?|
|Feb-07-08|| ||whiteshark: In 1990 he became Israeli Champion for the second time!|
More details about his tournaments and Chess Olympiad's participation:
|Feb-28-09|| ||timhortons: is these guy still alive?
|Feb-28-09|| ||WhiteRook48: I think so|
|Oct-22-09|| ||Stonehenge: <Dillinger> LOL!|
|Feb-27-10|| ||Poisonpawns: Happy Birthday Yehuda!!|
|Sep-21-10|| ||jontsef: He's playing in the Olympiad for ICSC (International Coalition for Silent Chess or something like that). He's on first board.|
|Feb-28-12|| ||waustad: I recall spending a while trying to figure out what the listing was for in the olympiad. Happy b'day!|
|Feb-28-12|| ||mike1: Yehuda is (was?) one of the strongest
speed chess players around; even though this is based on seeing him playing in Biel in the 80s. He played
games for money and trashed some Yugoslawian GMs and IMs with 1 minute to 5!
|Feb-28-12|| ||BIDMONFA: Yehuda Gruenfeld|
|Feb-28-12|| ||Penguincw: Happy Birthday POTD!|

And what exactly would that be, and why does it have the status of a country as far as the chess olympiad goes?
|Apr-19-15|| ||alexmagnus: International <Commitee> of Silent Chess. A chess federation for the hearing impaired. Part of the Olympiads just as the two others disability related federations (IBCA for the blind and IPCA for the physically disabled).|
|Feb-28-16|| ||TheFocus: Happy birthday, GM Yehuda Gruenfeld.|
|Sep-03-18|| ||FSR: He never played either side of the Gruenfeld Defense. Sad!|
|Sep-03-18|| ||perfidious: <atripodi: <This guy is a deaf mute> How does he offer a draw?>|
On the other side of the ledger, Gruenfeld was once playing Korchnoi, who offered a draw. Gruenfeld made a move in reply and went on to lose. It turned out that Gruenfeld had not heard Korchnoi's proposal of a draw.
|Sep-03-18|| ||Retireborn: <perfidious> John Nunn related a similar tale about this game:-|
Nunn vs J D Tisdall, 1995
Apparently Tisdall had the habit of playing with his thumbs in his ears and simply didn't hear the offered draw.
|Sep-03-18|| ||Sally Simpson: Hi Perfidious,
Do you have a source for the Korchnoi - Grünfeld incident.
I assumed it would be the first time they met. The first game here is dated 1982
Korchnoi vs Y Gruenfeld, 1982
Is not an Olympiad game it was played in 'Luzern' which does transpose into Lucerne where the Olympiad was held. But Korchnoi never played Yehuda Gruenfeld in the 1982 Olympiad.
(Israel did play Switzerland but it was against Switzerland II.)
The linked game is from the European Team Championship. The two met again in a later game (not on here). a draw in 53 moves.
|Sep-04-18|| ||perfidious: <Retireborn>, never heard the one about Nunn-Tisdall, though I recall meeting Tisdall in the mid 1970s. Jon always got in fierce time scrambles and kept his thumbs in his ears even then.|
<Geoff>, believe the Gruenfeld-Korchnoi bit was mentioned in <New in Chess> in the mid 80s.
|Sep-04-18|| ||Sally Simpson: Thanks Perfidious,
Apparently Korchnoi annotated a game of his v Gruenfeld in NIC.
"...the players [Karpov and Kasparov] were following a game between Yehuda Gruenfeld and Viktor Korchnoi in the San Bernardino 1983 Open Tournament. Gruenfeld had continued with 16 B-B4 but later lost. Korchnoi, in his commentary on this game in New in Chess, Vol. 1, 1984A, suggested 16 P-KN3, PxP; 17 PxP, N-K2, which was adopted by Karpov and Kasparov here..."
That will be this game. Y Gruenfeld vs Korchnoi, 1983
