YUDOVICH, Mikhail M.
|Sep-02-07|| ||jenspetersson: I'm searching for a D81 (Grünfeld 4.Qb3) game with "Mik-Mik".|
White was Belavenets (sometimes spelled Belawenez) and it was played in Moscow 1936. Any idea on where to find it?
|Jun-08-09|| ||WhiteRook48: he beat Fine?!|
|Apr-08-12|| ||backrank: I've always wondered who might have been Yudovich Jr., but there seems nowhere any trace of this guy! Why is Yudovich always called Senior if there is no Junior of the same name?|
BTW, one of the most remarkable games by Yudovich (Sr.!) is his short win over Kan with the black pieces (and NOT with the help of an opening trap, as in the case of his win over Fine):
