|Aug-10-04|| ||awacs: IM Georgi Orlov is well-known for his Black Knights' Tango expertise (1.d4Nf6 2.c4Nc6). based in Seattle WA. I'll dredge up a few more of his interesting games. Casey Collins (awacs) |
|Aug-10-04|| ||shr0pshire: Orlov won the US championships as well. |
|Jan-16-05|| ||kvcs: Let us, for the sake of argument, say that the ONLY thing "wrong" with IM Georgi Orlov is the "IM" designation....our group [Kxe6s VEREIN Chess Society] hopes he becomes a GM very SOON!!!!!!!
As for his Chess knowledge, theoretical acumen,
sportsmanship, organizational/promotional skills, and
publishing abilities, he is without peer.
|Jun-21-05|| ||WTHarvey: Here are some puzzles from Georgy's games: http://www.wtharvey.com/orlo.html|
|Jun-21-05|| ||Shams: Orlov is a fixture in Washington State, the best known local player besides Seirawan. The story goes he scored one or two GM norms before retiring from active play, I think because of his family. A couple years ago he won the Keres Memorial with a perfect score, ahead of many GMs.|
|Jul-06-05|| ||altmann1: georgy is a fine teacher and gentleman.|
|Apr-23-08|| ||Petrosianic: <shr0pshire> <Orlov won the US championships as well.>|
He didn't. He's <played> in the US Championships, yes (in 1994 and 1995), but didn't win either time.
|Apr-23-08|| ||Tomlinsky: <Petrosianic: <shr0pshire> <Orlov won the US championships as well.> He didn't. He's <played> in the US Championships, yes (in 1994 and 1995), but didn't win either time.>|
He was 1994 US Open Champion I believe.
|Apr-23-08|| ||Petrosianic: Oh, the US <Open>. Yeah, I think he did win that one. I think he was involved in one of those huge ties for first in the mid 90's.|
|Apr-23-08|| ||chancho: http://www.365chess.com/tournaments...|
|Apr-23-08|| ||Tomlinsky: <Petrosianic> Having checked it turns out that he had quite a year in 1994.|
1st National US Championship
1st Naional US Open
1st North American Open
1st World Open
Among many other impressive tournament resuls. At the end of the year he had a USCF rating of 2600 and a USCF Rapid rating of 2656
He also beat Seirawan +5 =3 in a Rapid head to head.
That's one heckuva strong IM.
|Sep-17-10|| ||PhilFeeley: He usually plays in the Keres Memorial in Vancouver, BC, every year. There's a Yelizaveta Orlova on the Canadian women's Olympiad team, so I wonder if she's his daughter. Also wondering why she plays for Canada.|
