SUETIN, Alexey S.
|Nov-16-06|| ||WTHarvey: <jaime gallegos> Victor Korchnoi is the Senior World Champion of 2006: https://www.chessbase.com/newsdetai...|
|Nov-16-06|| ||Phony Benoni: Good for Victor! But now we'll have to take him off the list of "Strongest Players Never to Become World Champion."|

|Jan-24-09|| ||whiteshark: Quote of the Day
< The work of a chess player is similar to a blast furnace process: it is continuous and demands a heated passion for chess.>
-- Alexander Suetin
|Jan-24-09|| ||Pyke: Hey <Sharky>, good to see you're still around. I just marked your post, because I put the same quote on my own forum ... but as usual, it turns out you were faster than me ... :-)|
|Jul-24-09|| ||whiteshark: <Pyke> Yet, again! :D|
|Nov-26-09|| ||Domdaniel: < The work of a chess player is similar to a blast furnace process: it is continuous and demands a heated passion for chess.> |
As this was written in the USSR, it can be seen as part of the propaganda effort to depict chess as industrial work. If written in the USA, it might be an appeal for sponsorship aimed at a smelting company. And in England it would be a begging letter to the rock group Blast Furnace & The Heatwaves, asking them to play for free at the post-match party.
|Nov-26-09|| ||whiteshark: Early bird <Ddl>, you've posted that at 04:37 hrs CET. :D|
|Nov-27-09|| ||Domdaniel: <Sharky> True. But on this occasion I was a late bird who hadn't gone to bed yet.|

GM Jacob Aagaard on the Quality Chess blog:
<However, we will have two other books on positional themes this year. We will publish another book in the Chess Classics series, called <<<SOVIET CHESS STRATEGY by Suetin>>>. Also, we have another book planned by a very interesting author on positional chess sacrifices; however, I do not want to announce this one too soon.>
Anyone know anything about this book? Thanks

|Feb-09-12|| ||ewan14: '' Chess through the prism of time ''
Kasparov gives this as the source of ( absolute ) proof of collusion in 1962 between Petrosian , Geller ( & Keres )
Has anyone read the relevent part ( of the book ) ?

What are they?
|Jul-13-15|| ||zanzibar: "They" == "Rooks"
That's the trouble with just quoting a quote out of context, sometimes.
|Jul-14-15|| ||offramp: <zanzibar: "They" == "Rooks"> Okay, thanks. In my mind I was thinking of howitzers:|
<Like mortars in old war films, howitzers are often ready to destroy the opponent's unsupported defences> - Alexei Suetin
Are you sure that isn't it? It makes more sense.
