  Benzol: Sergey Georgyevich Gorelov
Born 18th August 1957 in Moscow

Aug-18-07  Eastfrisian: Did he resign from active chess ?

  whiteshark: Mysterious - no FIDE-card
Aug-31-07  Whitehat1963: Gotta love this guy's name.
Aug-18-08  ravel5184: Hipy papy bthuthdth thuthda bthuthdy!
Aug-18-10  Prugno: I'm afraid he might be no longer with us. In a recent New in Chess article in memory of Lembit Oll (n.6/2009), Yermolinsky ends by saying farewell to a list of deceased players, and Gorelov is the first of them.

Perhaps some Russian reader has more information about this?

May-12-19  siggemannen: <Prugno>, i think you might be right. According to , Sergey Gorelov died prematurely.

  parmetd: Whiteshark fide regularly deletes fideids for passed members. A practice that upsets many as it gets even worse... They reuse the id. If there is one thing that doesn't need recycling.... It's fide ids.

  Tabanus: I just mailed FIDE about it. Hope it helps :)
