|Dec-03-04|| ||schoolsucks: Stripunsky was already popular in the US before then. But anyways a good example of Stripunsky's weaknesses can be shown here. Child Prodigy Josh Waitzkin demonstrates how to take care of the weak dark squares. It's really a great game to study.

|Dec-03-04|| ||SnoopDogg: Oh fo shizzle dogg, I remember when I gots second to Stripunsky in a 30 minute action tournament in New York of '98. I was the only brotha in the tournament too. Shiz. |
|Dec-04-04|| ||Poisonpawns: 1998?? its 2004 fellas, maybe Stripunsky is a tad bit stronger!? The terminator Stripunsky will be at least sharing first place in this tourney after its all said and done. |
|Dec-05-04|| ||whiskeyrebel: Congrats to Stripunsky! His round 9 game was exciting for sure featuring an attack with pieces seemingly hanging everywhere. I recommend you all check it out. I'll be following the playoff tommorow for sure. |
|Dec-07-04|| ||Knight13: <Overall record: +46 -14 =36 (66.7%)*> That's pretty high. |
|Dec-09-04|| ||KTKnight86: Alex wears the glasses because of his car accident in Memphis, not to be rude or hide his eyes, think about it and dont be so quick to judge. Not to mention that having surgery on an eye can make it extremely sensitive to light, especially at a highly publicized event like this one. |

"To top it off, it finished in a stalemate after Serper played a cute piece sacrifice to create a book draw fortress."
There's a word I thought I'd never hear when describing a chess move. Does cute mean something different in "chess talk"?
|Jul-13-05|| ||robmtchl: Alex played in the Chess Masterminds event this last week in Nashville, Tennessee. The show will air on Television in the US and via satellite world wide. www.chessmasterminds.com|
|Aug-27-05|| ||woodenbishop: Did Stripunsky get in an auto accident in Memphis, TN? If so, where can I find articles relating to this matter?|
|Oct-15-05|| ||Amber Berglund: Oh Honey, that accident was ages ago. Just move on and let him wear his sunglasses. To an earlier poster, Spassky69, sweetheart, I live with my darling, beloved Wojo. I don't know if we will get married, because there's some kind of weird tax situaion. I've had too much Sake. I always get into trouble when I drink too much Sake. So, I won't say much. But Stipunsky is fabulous. Really a nice guy. Sunglasses are sexy, honey. Sunglasses on a sexy russian are even sexier. Stripunsky is pimping that look. Accident or not, he's making it work.|
|Nov-06-06|| ||BIDMONFA: Alexander Stripunsky|
|Aug-02-08|| ||Jesspatrick: Here's to you Alex for your win in the Continental Open.|
Just so you know. Stripunsky is a fierce competitor at the board, but when the clocks are stopped, you couldn't hope to meet a nicer guy.
|Aug-18-08|| ||ravel5184: Hipy papy bthuthdth thuthda bthuthdy!|
|Aug-18-08|| ||dx9293: <Jesspatrick> Yes, Alex is a nice, very quiet guy. He almost never speaks!|
I've also never seen better posture at the chessboard...
|Sep-02-08|| ||Open Defence: any relation of Monty, Full ? :)|
|May-16-09|| ||myschkin: . . .
The former Soviet Union is often thought to be the breeding ground for top players. In Stripunsky’s case, his largest leap of improvement came after he moved to the United States, in 1997. At this time, he switched many of his main lines, such as his White Open Sicilian to offbeat lines in the closed Sicilian. He often catches his opponents off guard in systems they've never seen, let alone studied. Meanwhile, Alex can relax. Stripunsky is a specialist in finding positions that are easy for him to play.

|Aug-18-09|| ||akapovsky: Who wrote this guy's bio?! <he is a GM>|
|Apr-05-10|| ||Tabanus: Philadelphia Open 2010 (United States of America), final ranking crosstable:|
|May-23-10|| ||SufferingBruin: More biographical information from the current leader of the US Open:|
|Jan-05-12|| ||wordfunph: 1998 Manhattan Chess Club October International:
GM Alexander Stripunsky greeted Jay Bonin with the words, "I'm sorry." When Jay asked him what he was sorry about, Stripunsky replied, "You are the only player enough to lose to me in this tournament!"
|Jan-05-12|| ||Shams: <wordfunph> Again with the cryptic quotes. :)|
<Stripunsky replied, "You are the only player ____ enough to lose to me in this tournament!">
Is the omitted word yours, or Stripunsky's? Is the word "bad"?
|Jan-05-12|| ||wordfunph: <Shams> that was the original quote, i didn't omit any word.|
see you again tomorrow :)
