|Feb-24-09|| ||WhiteRook48: has he been playing any games recently?|
|Aug-04-09|| ||sajbs1: Ah "Da Loogie"
I remember meeting him at the 1988 World Open. He's a capital guy. He even gave me an autographed copy of his best games collection "Phlegm On Board"
|Mar-18-11|| ||Penguincw: He hasn't visited chessgames.com for years.|
|Aug-11-11|| ||Everett: There are two blitz victories over Kasparov from 1988 on his website (see above bio)|
|Jan-11-12|| ||timhortons: dlugy is a solid rock bullet player,he just dont stop playing that game for over the years at ICC and id seen in his countries banner the flag of russia, he must be based in russia now.|
|Jan-29-12|| ||BIDMONFA: Maxim Dlugy|
|Jan-29-12|| ||Penguincw: Happy Birthday Maxim Dlugy!|
|Jan-29-12|| ||JoergWalter: Happy birthday.
|Apr-24-12|| ||Interbond: Dlugy is making a comeback in Angola!! <http://www.chessbase.com/newsdetail...>|
|Apr-25-12|| ||HeMateMe: I thought Angola was a prison farm in Lousiana?|
|Jun-14-13|| ||Expendable Asset: <In 1986 he played first board on the U.S. Olympiad chess team in Dubai.> This is inaccurate. Yasser Seirawan actually played first board in the '86 Olympiad in Dubai, who famously beat Garry Kasparov in their encounter in the US vs. USSR match.|
|Jun-14-13|| ||TheFocus: <Expendable Asset> You are right. He only played second reserve. I will change it.|
|Oct-06-13|| ||ketchuplover: Thank you Maxim :)|
|Oct-06-13|| ||pawn to QB4: yes, you've done the game a great service.|
|Oct-12-13|| ||LIFE Master AJ: Congrats to Dlugy, he has done what an army of FIDE officials could not ...
|Jan-29-14|| ||Penguincw: Happy Birthday to GM Maxim Dlugy!|
|Mar-27-14|| ||Moszkowski012273: Good luck tomorrow at the Marshall! (even though I'm a big Yaacov fan).|
|Aug-26-14|| ||TheBish: I couldn't believe that Dlugy wasn't listed in the drop-down menu on the search page. Is that because there are too many grandmasters now? But I saw other players of much lower rank than Dlugy listed. Hmmm...|
|Aug-26-14|| ||Howard: Perhaps it's a combination of his being relatively inactive nowadays plus the fact that (with apologies to his fans) he was never among the world's elite. Granted, he won the world junior championship, in 1985, but he was never a world-class player.|
|Aug-26-14|| ||MissScarlett: <But I saw other players of much lower rank than Dlugy listed.>|
|Aug-26-14|| ||perfidious: Agreed; while Dlugy was long one of the strongest players in USA, he was never quite a contender for higher things, though he fared better in qualifying events for the world title than Walter Browne, who was stronger than Dlugy at their respective peaks and received invitations to top-class events far more often than did Dlugy.|
One thing sure: they can both play a little, as I know from first-hand experience of sitting across the board from each.
|Aug-26-14|| ||RookFile: Larry Evans isn't in the drop down list, and he won the US Championship 5 times. Dlugy has to do some work to equal that.|
|Aug-26-14|| ||perfidious: Had this site existed in the 1970s, Evans would easily have merited a place in a drop-down menu.|
|Dec-25-14|| ||Caissanist: I know Dlugy returned to Moscow a few years ago, I wonder if he is still there. Doesn't seem like a good place to be doing finance nowadays, especially if you don't have really really good connections.|
|Dec-26-14|| ||Strongest Force: Max has good connections. Unfortunately he has one or two enemies who stir up trouble.|
