offramp: It's very hard to read the review - it's a Babelfish translation, I hope.
Some players, like Yudasin and Yudovich, have names which display their religion to the world. I suppose they have a choice of either revelling in their religion or becoming paranoid about it. I mean in a Soviet milieu.
Poisonpawns: Yudasin played at the US amature team East in New Jersey from Feb18-20th Here is a game from my team mate Ernie Johnson rated 2000 against the GM.Yudasin hangs a piece! but he swindled a draw.

Lautier-Yudasin at the Manila 1990 Interzonal, yoga practitioner GM Leonid Yudasin meditated in lotus position for 20 minutes before making his first move. Some of the players, notably Short and Lautier, chuckled as they watched Yudasin do his act. "A bit strange." observed Chandler from afar. Yudasin lost his game against Joel Lautier.
