Sep-23-05  who: Who is this guy. His record against top notch players is quite good. I've never heard of him though. Could someone post a bio?
Sep-23-05  Resignation Trap: Yury Kots was born December 9, 1933.

He won the Championship of Ukraine in 1961 and 1971.

He qualified to participate in the 29th USSR Championship in 1961 and scored 8/20 for 14th-16th place. He also qualified for the 30th USSR Championship final, where he scored a very respectable 10/19, and finished in 9th place.

When the USSR had their Championship with the Swiss-system in 1967, Kots also played there, but he finished in the middle of the crosstable.

  Benzol: <Resignation Trap> I'm mystified as to why you don't get yourself on the <chessgames> Administrative Player Editor list.

I know you can contribute immensely and I for one would look forward to your postings.

Sep-24-05  Resignation Trap: <Benzol> To be honest, I didn't even know that there was an Administrative Player Editor list. How do I get myself on it?
Sep-24-05  WMD: <When the USSR had their Championship with the Swiss-system in 1967, Kots also played there, but he finished in the middle of the crosstable.>

Sounds painful.

  Benzol: <Resignation Trap> If you just e-mail <chessgames> I feel sure that they will put you on it.
Sep-13-10  MaczynskiPratten: This player was so good that according to the games list (as at Sep 10) he played his first game 2 years before he was born :-) However, he lost, maybe not surprisingly...
Jul-26-17  Eagle41257: He played for the Ukraine.
