Kibitzer's Corner
Aug-23-04  lao tzu: Norman is a member (even an investor) at worldchessnetwork.com who plays 1 minute games daily...and actually has the most amount of games played there(!) - for those interested, he's a tough competitor- and just fun to watch
Aug-23-04  DanielBryant: I thought he was serving a life sentence for murder.

  paulalbert: You are thinking of Raymond Weinstein, not Norman. They are not related. Paul Albert
Apr-06-05  Caissanist: Weinstein gave up competitive chess (OTB chess anyway) in order to become an investment banker, where he was quite successful. In fact, there is a story (on http://www.hhgross.net/chessintro.h...) about how, in 1990, Weinstein convinced his firm (Banker's Trust) to put an ad in Chess Life inviting strong chess players to apply for commercial banking positions. Supposedly they wound up hiring two GMs and three IMs as a result. If true, it would be very interesting to know if any of the people who were hired in fact had successful careers.
Oct-13-05  Caissanist: It appears that the two GMs that Bankers Trust hired from the ad were Maxim Dlugy (who seems to have done well as a financier before running afoul of the Russian authorities) and the Briton David Norwood (who has been very successful and is now CEO of the "IP2IPO Group plc"). Since neither one of them appears to have had any significant financial background before they were hired, it would seem that Norman was onto something. Still no information on any of the IMs, however.
Sep-27-06  Caissanist: IM Weinstein posted the following reply when I asked about this topic at http://www.chessninja.com/dailydirt...

In terms of chess players who worked at Bankers Trust, the list includes Girome Bono, Max Dlugy, Anna Gulko, Sal Matera, David Norwood, in addition to myself.

Seeing this list brought back some memories-I got to face all these players except Norwood, though I had the pleasure of meeting him when he played an invitational at Cambridge, Massachusetts in 1986. Nice guy.

The last time I saw Weinstein, he mopped the floor with me in the first round of the 1983 New England Open in twenty-odd moves.

  wordfunph: from Grandmaster Chess - The Book of the Louis D. Statham Lone Pine Masters-Plus Tournament 1975..

<The other great result was by Norman Weinstein, who earned a GM norm in this tournament. Thereafter, he had another GM result, but then missed getting his required third GM norm by a half point three times. He eventually gave up without ever getting the Grandmaster Title.

- Sam Sloan>

Aug-26-11  Strongest Force: I knew both SS and NW. NW always wanted to play me at the ICC. SS and myself once sponsored two kid's hefty fees at this one tournament. I think the girl he sponsored was Judit Shipman who was the daughter of IM Walter Shipman. Judit and the other kid were good friends who were with me when Sam showed-up and the rest was history.

Aug-26-11  Strongest Force: Its good to see Sam is on cg.com. when I knew him he was connected to Wall Street in some way. His Zilber story reminds me of "KK": a very young African master who spent tons of money on me: as if I was his young date!

You like to talk about yourself quite often.

Are you a narcissist?

  perfidious: <Conrad>, to see a narcissist, all you need do is look in the mirror.
Apr-18-14  Conrad93: Would I see you?
Apr-19-14  Conrad93: Well, in the eyes of an idiot they would seem like stupid conclusions.

It helps to have an open mind.

May-19-14  Caissanist: <Conrad93: Would I see you?>

If you are who you want us to think you are then yes, you would probably see him, minus about 35 years. And 35 years from now you'll probably be hanging out on something similar to this site, telling stories about your glory and semi-glory days. Which is just fine, in fact it's one of the things I come here for.

Jun-12-14  Howard: In the 1978 U.S. Championship, he drew all of his games but one. The one exception was his crush of Christiansen.

Weinstein retired from chess shortly later.

  wordfunph: IM Weinstein never played the Alekhine Defense from his 105 games here in CG but interestingly he authored The Alekhine Defense published by Chess Digest in 1977..

Sep-23-14  Strongest Force: Norman would show up with his wife from time to time to kibitz some big tournament games. When he was 16 he saw me working at Macy's and wanted to know how he could also get such a big summer job like me (he couldn't know he would make hundreds of millions at the time). Also, once, he also once laughed out loud when he saw me wearing bellbottom pants which were a fad of the sixties. Another big laugh he got was when he saw junior champ Walter Browne playing both me and Vinnie Livermore (the Fishburn character in Searching For Bobby Fischer) in blitz at the same time for money!! Me and Vinnie both became master-level blitz players.
Apr-06-15  JohnBoy: Weinstein won the following game in brilliant fashion. It should be in this database.
