|Jan-06-08|| ||brankat: S.A.Furman. Yet another fine GM who didn't get as much recognition as he deserved. But in his case, it was mostly by his own choice. Mr.Furman preferred to stay in the background. A strong player and excellent teacher, nonetheless.|

|Dec-12-08|| ||Karpova: Furman won the fifth Rubinstein Memorial, Polanica Zdroj 09-31.08.67 in impressive style with 11.0/15 (+8 -1 =6) ahead of players like Hort, Uhlmann, Flohr, Suttles, Adamski, Filipowicz and Sliwa.|

He stopped getting tourney invites because he wouldn't play with the black pieces.
|Dec-03-09|| ||talisman: <Shams> now that's funny!|
|Dec-03-09|| ||HeMateMe: Was he a detective on the O.J. case?|
|Dec-03-09|| ||talisman: <HeMateMe> right...i think he went to utah.|
|Dec-01-10|| ||dx9293: Happy Birthday to the hard-working Grandmaster and one of the first "super trainers" in chess history.|
|Dec-01-10|| ||Infohunter: My strongest impression of GM Furman was formed when I saw the game wherein he brought off a win by the Double Bishop Sacrifice--with the Black pieces yet! That game was V Kirilov vs Furman, 1949.|
|Feb-09-11|| ||wordfunph: Based on GM Genna Sosonko's book Russian Silhouettes, Viktor Korchnoi remembered how Semyon Furman, at a tournament in Scandinavia, each morning bought a roast chicken which then cost a dollar, which he would stealthily consume during the course of the day as his sole food.|

|Jan-03-12|| ||wordfunph: "He studied chess all the time. He liked to use a pocket set since we didn't have much room in the house. But even without a set, he was all the time thinking about chess, in the train, in the bus. I know that look, when he listened to and did not hear what I was saying to him --- he was all wrapped up in chess."|
- Alla Furman (wife of GM Semyon Furman, on GM Furman)
|Dec-01-12|| ||The Last Straw: Happy Birthday.|
|Dec-01-12|| ||Everett: Bronstein mostly went solo (by choice and by circumstance) yet before and during Gothenburg 1955 he worked with Furman, and ran away with the tournament with a +10 =10.|
In Sorcerer's Apprentice he goes on to say that he was not surprised to learn that the amazingly strong and mature play of the young Anatoly Karpov was honed under Furman's training.
|Dec-01-13|| ||RedShield: <Bronstein mostly went solo> He looked the type.|
|Dec-01-13|| ||offramp: I have a list of 757 games by GM Furman.
As white he played 391 games.
With those white pieces he scored +185, =126, -76.
|Dec-01-13|| ||Penguincw: R.I.P. <POTD>: GM Semyon Abramovich Furman.|
