Kibitzer's Corner
Jun-29-11  gars: In his book "Tigran Petrosian, his life and games", Vik Vasiliev states that Ebralidze had three "chess devotions": Niemzowitsch, Capablanca and the Caro-Kan Defence.

  wordfunph: One day during the Georgian championship, IM Archil Ebralidze replied to 1.e4 by stopping the clock and signing his scoresheet underneath the words 'Black resigned'. To a perturbed controller, the master explained his decision like this: "Somehow I just don't like my opponent's face today!"

Happy Birthday, IM Ebralidze!

Jul-24-17  Eagle41257: He wasn't an international master, just a USSR master (1941).
Jul-24-17  Eagle41257: It's a true story. He refused to play that game 'cause his opponent was drunk. There is another story. He didn't take a rook, though a spectator in the hall cried: "Archil, take a rook!"
