  wordfunph: The Soviet Chess Federation received an invitation to send two players to an international junior tournament, and they sent Karpov and Viktor Kupreichik. When they arrived in Czechoslovakia it turned out that the tournament was for adults. There being no time to send replacements, the two youngsters were given the green light to participate. The result was a sensation - Karpov and Kupreichik finished 1-2.

happy birthday Viktor!

May-22-17  Resignation Trap: Sorry to report this, but veteran GM Viktor Kupreichik passed away earlier today at age 68: https://www.svaboda.org/a/28502157....
May-22-17  cunctatorg: Not old enough but on the contrary he died too early; a pity...

However he left an important work...

May-24-17  gars: Sad news. I'd like to know more about him.
May-24-17  Alekhinelives: Cmon 1 year old? Not possible to even learn the movements.

  Marmot PFL: That's old for a chess player, as the game causes lots of stress.
May-24-17  Eastfrisian: Yes, again a great loss. R.I.P.
May-24-17  CountryGirl: I am so sad to hear this news. 68 is not very old. Viktor was a fearless attacker, he would take anyone on. RIP.

  eternaloptimist: It's sad that GM Kupreichik passed away but he did leave us many brilliant attacking games to remember him by. His beautiful niece, Anastasia Sorokina, is a good chess player & has a great smile as well. She was born in Belarus 🇧🇾 like Viktor but now she lives in Australia 🇦🇺. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ana... Anastasia Sorokina <CountryGirl> He was a fearless chess player indeed!

He was on the level of Super-Nez

Or very close
