Kibitzer's Corner
Feb-24-06  Manuel Garcia: The best mexican player after Carlos Torre. He was a quite strong IM, but played too little after obtaining the GM title. He is retired from active chess (what does not mean from chess in general). He is now a... film director! His film "Libre de culpa" was a very promising effort, but the sound quality was awful. The film "una de dos" was a very good one.

Oct-31-06  Manuel Garcia: Sisniega is one of the organizers of the World Championship in Mexico-City. Finally has he found a way to earn for a living from chess.

  whiteshark: I never heared before about hin.
But there is a book about him:

<MASTERPIECES OF ATTACK * THE BRILLIANT GAMES OF MEXICO’S GM MARCEL SISNIEGA CAMPBELL * <Gabriel Velasco> (1997)

< These 659 games (most annotated) are an attempt to gather all his best efforts at the chessboard, many of which are really extraordinary works of art. Like his mentor, Carlos Torre, attacking is the style of this Mexican Grandmaster. <His games are often characterized by a very lively and enterprising style, the direct attack against the king being a salient feature in his style. As far as tactics and combinative play was concerned, Sisniega really excelled and produced many beautiful masterpieces and breathtaking short games.> -author.

This grandmaster is your contemporary - you will learn the art of attack, sacrifices and combinations from him. Openings and games indexed as well as his opponents. A great book with lots of text to involve you. 299 pages, figurine algebraic. >>

Sep-17-07  Manuel Garcia: Debería volver al ajedrez activo.

  chancho: Me imagino que esta partida es una de sus mas memorables.

Anand vs M Sisniega, 1987

Sep-17-07  Manuel Garcia: ¡Seguro! Aunque supongo que las que le ganó a Yusupov y a Romanishin también las recuerda con gusto. Ya eran jugadores plenamente formados.

Sep-27-09  syracrophy: Marcel Sisniega Campbell es de los escasos ajedrecistas mexicanos, sino el unico, que puede considerarse digno sucesor del legendario Carlos Torre. El excelente libro de la vida y partidas de Sisniega escrito por Gabriel Velasco (quien tambien escribio un libro sobre Torre) puede considerarse de lectura y estudio obligado para quien desee conocer a fondo a uno de los ajedrecistas mas reputados de nuestro pais.
Nov-16-09  astronomychess: A humane chess player !! retired early from chess to seek other creative art endeavorssuch as painting, writing and movie making,

cheers, alonso acuna barba

Dec-26-10  Green Bishop: I just saw one of his movies: "Luces artificiales" and I can say that he is a Grandmaster Film Director.
Jul-28-12  LoveThatJoker: Happy Birthday, GM Sisniega!

Dec-11-13  ChessCoachClark: <Gottschalk> FYI, the game you generously listed as a PGN in April 2013 has been included in the book, MASTERPIECES OF ATTACK: The Brilliant Games of GM Marcel Sisniega Campbell, by Gabriel Velasco, on page 158, Game #298. However, that book has 1981 as the year. The only annotation provided is "Times: White 2:14; Black 2:29." What source did you use? (No problem; just curious.)
