FIDE player card for Evgenij Romanovich Agrest

(born Aug-15-1966, 52 years old) Belarus (federation/nationality Sweden)

[what is this?]

GM Evgenij Romanovich Agrest, from Belarus, has been living in Sweden since 1994. In 2003, he won a game from world champion Ruslan Ponomariov because Ponomariov's cell phone rang during their match in the European team championship. A cell phone ringing during a FIDE match is an automatic disqualification. In 2004, it was Agrest who lost a game when his cell phone rang. He has won the Nordic Chess Championship in 2001 and 2003. He won the Swedish Championship in 1998, 2001, 2002, and 2004. He has played in four Chess Olympiads. In 2004, he played Board 1 for Sweden at the Chess Olympiad in Calvia.

Kibitzer's Corner
May-29-04  Bobsterman3000: This should go under "notable games" for Agrest. The committee at Linares would probably give Agrest a "brilliancy prize" for this win...
May-29-04  poktirity: Yes I was a nice and unexpected winning technique.
Jul-06-04  ConLaMismaMano: Is Agrest swedish-born or from an eastern europe country?
Premium Chessgames Member
  acirce: Nope, as his name indicates he is Russian, moved here about ten years ago.
Oct-31-04  aw1988: What's so scary about Agrest? :)
Oct-31-04  nikolaas: Perhaps he's AgresIVE?
Oct-31-04  siggemannen: Agrest is probably most known by his cellular phone incidents, one against Ponomariov when Agrest won, and another in the Swedish Championship (if i remember right) when after white made the first move Agrest's phone rang. Some ppl say it was Pono calling, wanted to say they are even now :)
Jan-17-05  angelique: dose any one want to play me
Apr-07-05  WTHarvey: Here are some chess diagrams of mates and 'must wins' in Evgeny's games not shown here:
Apr-07-05  notyetagm: The following game by Agrest won a prestigious <Chess Informant Best Game Prize>: Agrest vs Bacrot, 2001.
Jan-11-06  Devilz: lol he won because Ponomariov's cell phone rang :P
Jun-19-06  BIDMONFA: Evgeny Agrest

AGREST, Evgenij

Jun-19-06  mahmoudkubba: <siggemannen>: What's a Pono calling?
Jun-19-06  Elixir of Life: Pono = Ponomariov
Jun-19-06  LPeristy: He probably got someone to call Ponomariov's cell phone for him. Actually, that'd be a great winning tactic. Find out your opponents cell phone number, and call it at the appropriate time. *Continues devious scheming*
Jun-27-06  mahmoudkubba: <LPeristy>: Wasn't there a referee to find out abt such a thing or didn't they found out such a trick if it is supposed to be a trick?? and didn't any body noticed that it is from the opponent?? or it is just the good luck that look a like a ping pong game (a Table Ten. g.) when the small ball touchs the edge of the opponent??
Aug-15-09  WhiteRook48: aggravation is not rest
