  wordfunph: "The name of Alexander Shakarov might not be world famous, but hardly anyone has lived a life more dedicated to chess. He is one of the most dedicated workers I've ever met. Alexander has always had more interest in analysing than playing, though he was quite a good player, if an impractical one."

- Gary Kasparov
