|Mar-03-09|| ||Korch: Some information about Boris Katalymov + annotation of one of his games:|
|Aug-17-11|| ||Antiochus: IM born:1932 KAZ|
|Aug-17-11|| ||Antiochus: Boris Katalymov was born in 1932 and became master of USSR in 1959. It should be pointed out that many Masters of USSR played in IM and GM level then, because many talented USSR players lacked possibility to play in international tournaments out of USSR - only the best amongst the best had a chance to play abroad. Probably that was main reason why Katalymov become IM only after breakdown of USSR in 1996 when he had over 60.
He has won many Kazakhstan championships, played with top GMs like Korchnoi, Karpov, Bronstein Taimanov, Keres etc. in different competitions (and sometimes with not bad results). According to Chessmetrics Katalymov has reached his peak in 1978 when he was 84th in the World.
Also Katalymov is known as author of many interesting and original opening ideas like Nh6 -f6-Nf7 setup in Old Benoni (used against Kunte), original queen move in French Rubinstein (1.e4 e6 2.d4 d5 3.Nc3(d2) dxe4 4.Nxe4 Qd5!?) which is similar with one idea of Nimzowitch in Caro-Kann (1.e4 c6 2.d4 d5 3.Nc3 dxe4 4.Nxe4 Nf6 5.Nxf6 gxf6 6.c3 Qd5!?) , 2...b6!? in Sicilian ( after 1.e4 c5 2.Nf3) in some sources called Katalymov variation, some interesting ideas in Sokolsky opening (1.b4) which was his weapon for many years etc.|
