|Nov-09-04|| ||J.A. Topfke: Racist and jewish supremacist. Here is an online review of his book:
|Nov-09-04|| ||dafish298: well that certainly wasnt a bias comment |
|Dec-05-04|| ||Knezh: It looks like Yudasin has gone bonkers big time on the idea of Jewish supremacy. |
|Jan-06-06|| ||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.
|Jan-06-06|| ||ughaibu: Or changing their names.|
|Jan-06-06|| ||offramp: Yeah... I didn't say that because Kasparov is the only Soviet player I can think of who did change his name - and it wasn't even him, it was his guardians.|
|Jan-06-06|| ||weltschmertz: leonid yudasin is a wonderful man.|
|Feb-23-06|| ||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.|

|Aug-08-09|| ||wordfunph: GM Leonid Yudasin is an Orthodox Jew who can play on the Sabbath, but cannot keep score and thus gives up the option of making a time claim!|
Happy Birthday GM Leonid Yudasin!

|Aug-08-10|| ||wordfunph: i forgot where i lifted this bit of info..
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.
happy birthday Leonid!
