|Nov-26-03|| ||Master of Sacrifice: maybe its a different Valery Chekhov and the database accidentally mixed them. I mean, the database has a game from 1893, then immediately afterward a game from 1972. Clearly two different players. |
|Nov-26-03|| ||chessgames.com: The game from 1893 was a different Chekhov (obviously!) and we have it fixed now. |

|Dec-26-04|| ||Benzol: Valery Alexandrovich Chekhov
Born 27th November 1955
He became an IM in 1975 and a GM in 1984. He was World Junior Champion in 1975.

|Nov-27-08|| ||BIDMONFA: Valery A Chekhov|
|Nov-27-08|| ||Karpova: <"Chess used to be prestigious," said Valery Chekhov, a junior world champion in the 1970s. "Now not as much. But children are starting to love it for different reasons."|
The main reason is the use of computers in today's chess world, which has sparked a resurgence of interest among children, Chekhov said.
Kasparov and his predecessors became champions through endless reading and playing, but chess experts agree that computers have pushed the game to a higher level - making chess research and previous outcomes much more widely available.
Russia's bright chess future is visible at a children's center where Chekhov and his wife, Tatyana, provide free after-school lessons.
Tatyana Chekhov lectures to an attentive class full of young chess-lovers, gesturing with a pointer to a chess diagram taped to the blackboard.
In an adjacent room, children are immersed in brightly colored computer chess programs. Clicking on the correct answer to a problem prompts a cheery beep.>

|Nov-27-08|| ||lentil: the star trek guy was named pavel chekhov|
|Nov-27-09|| ||edbermac: Where's Chekov? Out with Uhura looking for nuclear wessels.|
|Nov-27-09|| ||ComboKal: Here's a little Star Trek trivia that involves the <Continuum> with no <logical explanation>! |
In the movie <"The Wrath of Khan"> when <Khan> encounters <Pavel Chekov> on Ceti Alpha Five, he recognized him, claiming he never forgets a face.
How is this possible???
Chekov didn't appear on the TV series until the second season, and therefore was not in the first season episode <"Space Seed"> which featured the imfamous Khan, and his crew of the Botany Bay.

|Nov-27-12|| ||Abdel Irada: I imagine that the 19th-century playwright Anton Chekhov (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anton_...) would be somewhat put out to discover that his fame has been eclipsed by a cheesy pseudo-Russian comic deuteragonist in a made-for-television 20th-century science-fiction drama.|
And I'm not sure that he'd find much consolation in the fact that the latter was a namesake of his father, Pavel Yegorovich Chekhov.
|Nov-27-12|| ||YoungEd: I don't know if this player is married, but if so his wife is Chekov mate.|
