|Apr-11-06|| ||whiskeyrebel: maybe somebody should sponsor a 3 person family team tournament.|
|May-13-06|| ||DeepBlade: Mikhail Gurevich plays in Turkey, which is a great honour to have him play there.|
Overall record: Mikhail Gurevich beat Suat Atalik 1 to 0, with 1 draw.
M Gurevich vs S Atalik, 2006
Mikhail Gurevich's best game (in my opinion)
M Gurevich vs Short, 1990
Ilya's interresting game, his opening seems to challenge theory
I Gurevich vs Nunn, 1992
Last but not least, Dimitri Gurevich
L Ross vs D Gurevich, 2004
Resilent, clean and modern play!
|Sep-11-06|| ||BIDMONFA: Dimitri Gurevich|
|Sep-11-06|| ||Benzol: <Sularus> Take your pick
|Jul-22-07|| ||SniperOnKN2: This guy looks like Kasparov, but plays on the other side of the Aronin-Taimanov.|
|Mar-20-08|| ||ex0duz: http://img.epochtimes.com/i6/503172...
Stop pulling my leg please.. That HAS to be Kasparov, otherwise he's got a twin i never knew existed till today..
|Jun-12-08|| ||WannaBe: <ex0duz> I'm quite sure that's <NOT> Kasparov.|
Since I was the one that took the picture, and got to see him in action.
Now, if you see a picture of me, you'd say <I AM KASPAROV>. :-))

|Nov-07-09|| ||whiskeyrebel: I faced GM D. Gurevich at his simul at the Western States open a couple weeks ago. There were 18 of us players in all. I hoped for more so I could have more time between moves. He was very generous with "passes" however. He played an advance variation against my Caro Kann. I've been gloating all over this website about not being afraid of the advance, so I felt happy to be surviving well at the 18 move point. By move 30 I was crushed of course. Thank you for the lesson, sir.
By the way, my Wife says he really looks like a strong chessplayer. We both sensed a powerful aura.|
|Jan-12-11|| ||wordfunph: marriage and chess.. :)
Jerry Hanken: Do you plan to get married soon?
GM Dmitry Gurevich: Please Jerry, I do not look that far ahead in that variation!
|Jan-12-11|| ||wordfunph: 1996 Interplay U.S. Championship in New Jersey:
GM Dmitry Gurevich, during the closing ceremony, said that it was the best U.S. Championship that he had ever played. GM Larry Christiansen then piped in, "But Dmitry, you say that every year…"
|Jan-12-11|| ||swordfish: I've never had a chance to play Dmitri--I have to get better scores--but often see him at tournaments, playing or accompanying his students. He won the US Open recently, 2009 I think. Seems a really decent guy, not full of himself. There was an interesting article about him in the Chicago Reader about ten years back; unfortunately, I don't have a link.|
|Sep-11-11|| ||LIFE Master AJ: This guy is obviously a good player. (He has beaten me a few times.) |
He was absent from PTB competiton ... seems to be making a comeback as of late.
|Sep-11-11|| ||SimonWebbsTiger: classic AJ!
<This guy is obviously a good player. (He has beaten me a few times.) >
oh lord above....Given Gurevich is a GM and rated 2480 at the time of writing, it stands to reason he knows the difference between a prawn and a pawn and doesn't call knights <ponies>. But oh no -- forget his distinguished career; he has beaten the <Laugh Master> so that means he is a good player. Jebus....
|Sep-11-11|| ||JoergWalter: no games Goldsby vs. Gurevich in this database? The score sheets must be classified stuff "burn before reading".|
|Sep-11-11|| ||ProjectR: I wander,if he were to get a mild electric shock every time he told a lie,if he'd even open his mouth at all ?? Lets have this right,he couldn't even lie strait in bed,and i personally dont see the reasons why he needs to tell lie after lie,each one bigger than the last|
|Sep-11-11|| ||whiteshark: Laughter is an instant vacation. :D|
|Sep-11-11|| ||parmetd: It is his birthday! Be respectful! Dmitry is one of the nicest players I know.|
|Sep-11-11|| ||perfidious: While I played some events with Dmitri through the years, we never met at the board, but he seemed a decent fellow; an illustration of a theory that Danny Kopec once mentioned, in that many strong players are respectful of others and their capabilities.|
Wink, nod to <The. Greatest. Player. Ever>....yeah, you must be truly awesome if a grandmaster has beaten you a few times.
<parmetd> Does Dima still play poker?
A few years back, I was playing holdem in Tunica, Mississippi with a guy who knew Gurevich from the poker tables of Harrah's in E Chicago.
|Sep-11-11|| ||parmetd: He plays poker but usually only in Vegas during the national open.|
|Sep-11-11|| ||ProjectR: So is this the brother/cousin,or some other relation of the Gurevich that played against Kasparov in a simul for the US juniors in 1988 ?|
|Sep-11-11|| ||perfidious: <ProjectR: So is this the brother/cousin,or some other relation of the Gurevich that played against Kasparov in a simul for the US juniors in 1988 ?>|
No; this Gurevich gave Chess Life an interview in the early 1990s, in which he stated that none of the three GMs named Gurevich are related, further noting that it's a common Russian Jewish surname, and the equivalent of the Polish surname Horowitz.
|Sep-11-12|| ||talisman: happy birthday GM Gurevich.|
|Sep-11-13|| ||Penguincw: Happy Birthday GM Gurevich.|
|May-07-15|| ||zanzibar: Please, some biographer editor or somebody, change his first name to <Dimitry> - to match FIDE card and name he uses in local press in US.|
