  whiteshark: Also a Russian search engine ?!
Dec-22-07  Resignation Trap: <whiteshark> <>>Also a Russian search engine ?!<<>

Cute, but <Georgian Search Engine> would have been more to the point!

Picky, picky, picky! :)

  whiteshark: <Resignation Trap>: Yes, of course! It must be a <Georgian Search Engine>!

Damn it, I ruined the payoff. :D

Oct-11-08  Resignation Trap: I just discovered a nice trilingual website (English/Georgian/Russian) which covers Goglidze's games and career in detail: . It also features many interesting photographs which I have never seen.

  brankat: <Resignation Trap> Thanks for the link. Yet another tragic, but also warm story, among untold thousands, of the Stalin years.

R.I.P. Master Goglidze.

  juan31: from my point of view of a simple fan of chess Master Goglidze Viktor,A. was a excelent player
Premium Chessgames Member
  MissScarlett: His older brother was Sergo Goglidze, one of <Stalin's hangmen>:

Confirmed by

No doubt, if a leading German player had a brother who was a senior Nazi and associate of Heydrich, I'd have heard of it before now.
