|Apr-22-05|| ||refutor: i'm a big fan of his book "beating the caro-kann" |
|Aug-26-05|| ||uladzik: "VIKTOR KUPREICHIK (born Jul-03-1949) Russia" - the native country listing is wrong. He is from Minsk, Belarus.|
|Oct-29-05|| ||Whitehat1963: <uladzik> Are we sure Kupreichik wasn't born in 1849? He plays like a 19th century player.|
|Dec-30-05|| ||waddayaplay: The stats say it all: +602 -399 =380 . Mention another GM that draws less games?|
|Jul-03-06|| ||BIDMONFA: Viktor Kupreichik|
|Nov-29-06|| ||beatles fan: According to this, he played a game when he was 1!!!|
|Dec-29-06|| ||TheBB: "talpa" on FICS played this fireworks draw against Kupreichik, and presented it in a lecture there:|

Draw offered by black in severe time trouble. Let me know if you want his comments (talpas that is).
|May-11-07|| ||alshatranji: "Draw offered by black in severe time trouble."
Doesn't the heading say "unrated untimed match"?
|Jun-06-07|| ||russep: This guy is amazing he played his first serious game of chess when he was only 1 years old|
|Jun-06-07|| ||Tomlinsky: <According to this, he played a game when he was 1!!!>|
It's not that impressive really, he lost. Not only that but the event appears to have traumatised him into becoming a QGA and Slav adherent thereafter.
|Jul-03-08|| ||whiteshark: Happy Birthday, GM Kupreichik!|
|Sep-07-08|| ||GrahamClayton: Kupreichik finished last in the first 3 USSR championships (1969, 1974 & 1976) that he competed in.|

|Jul-26-09|| ||Phony Benoni: After those first three USSR Championships, he became known for starting fast but fading. In the 48th Chamionship (1980/81), he started with five straight wins and 6.5/7. Later, with five rounds to go, he had 9.0/12 and led the field by 1.5 points--whereupon he lost four in a round and dropped to a tie for sixth. Here was the game which began his downfall: Romanishin vs Kupreichik, 1980|
|Jan-13-10|| ||humangraymatter: Why is "Kupreichik-Sunye Neto 1989" game not included in the notable games section? That game is a piece of art.|
|Jan-13-10|| ||TheChessGuy: This guy is a true "caveman" in chess terms. Ferocious and deadly with the initiative.|
|Apr-19-10|| ||Tabanus: Yesterday in Thessaloniki, Greece he was European senior vice champion 2010:|
|Jul-03-10|| ||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!

|Apr-16-11|| ||FSR: I thought this guy had killed himself, but had him confused with Alvis Vitolinsh.|
|Sep-25-11|| ||wordfunph: <TheChessGuy: This guy is a true "caveman" in chess terms. Ferocious and deadly with the initiative.>|

<Kupreichik enjoys a reputation as a caveman attacker.>
