GENRIKH CHEPUKAITIS
(born Sep-14-1935, died Sep-05-2004, 68 years old) Russia

[what is this?]

Genrikh Mikhailovich Chepukaitis was born in 1935 in Leningrad, USSR. In 1957 he was inducted into the Soviet Army, where he spent two years studying with Vladimir Andreevich Makogonov. In classical play he had some good results but never gained an international title; his highest FIDE rating was 2420. However, he was much stronger at blitz chess, becoming one of the strongest blitz players in the Soviet Union. He was Leningrad/St. Petersburg blitz champion in 1965, 1967, 1976, 1978, 1982 and 2002.

  WannaBe: <Open Defence: <God, if only it WERE a book of pick-up lines> wanna go back to my place and shuffle some rooks ? I got a "bad" bishop :)>

I don't get it, can someone explain??

Feb-14-09  karik: <I don't get it, can someone explain??>

Sorry, we can't. You know, we obey those guidelines, chapter 1. "No obscene, racist, sexist, or profane language."

Jun-06-09  returnoftheking: Apparently there is an opening system named after this man: Khalifman names e4 g6 d4 Bg7 Nc3 a6 f4 with a future b5, Nd7 and c5 the Ujtelky -Chepukaitis system.
Aug-23-09  returnoftheking: http://www.gmchess.com/gmschool/lec...

By changing the numbers from 1 to 4 in the url you can see 4 lectures of the late master Chepukaitis.

It seems to me that Sosonko copied quite a lot of it in NIC and his book "smart chip from St Petersburg"

  whiteshark: <karik> Doesn't it apply for the usage of the word <bishop> alone?

Could be an expanding problem for a chesssite...

  wordfunph: Genrikh Chepukaitis was a 2200 player but a really good blitz player from the Soviet Union. He had a rivalry with Korchnoi. He won the St. Petersburg Blitz Championship 5 times and Korchnoi 7 times. He regularly beat Tal at Blitz; that's how good he was. One day, Tal invited Chepukaitis to his room for some blitz matches and Genrikh obliged. When he got there, he met an older man who told him Tal was out but he could warm him up until Tal got back. Chepukaitis thought this was Tal's uncle. Then the older man proceeded to wipe out Genrikh in one game after another. Turns out the older man was Rashid Nezhmitzinov.

(sorry guys, i forgot where i lifted this piece of trivia)

Sep-19-10  rapidcitychess: Today's quote is not exactly the best idea ever, unless you are Mischa Tal, but that is different.

I wish I could sac, sac, mate like Tal..

< "You need not play well - just help your opponent to play badly." >

Cool.I never knew that.Next time I'm playing chess,I'll tell my opponent to move their queen to a square where she'll be taken by a pawn (or knight or bishop or rook or king).

We always knew George the Genius got by on Daddy and Grandpa's coattails.

An obvious case of education gone to waste.

<keypusher: The future Mrs. Keypusher, upon seeing a copy of George Botterill's <Open Gambits>: "Uh, is that a book of pick-up lines?">

ROFL

That's an excellent book-wish I could find my copy!

This anecdote appears in Sosonko's "Smart Chip from St. Petersburg."

However, it also appears- with different details- in chess cafe here

http://www.chesscafe.com/text/skitt...

And yet another version, with a new set of details, here

http://lanternascacchi.wordpress.co...

The basic story remains stable, but <Chepukaitis> was a notorious story teller who tended not to repeat the same version of any anecdote about his life.

  Fusilli: Six times Leningrad/St.Petersburg blitz champion... Who else famous won this tournament? Did Korchnoi, for example? Blitz tournaments at the highest levels seem to be a lot more popular now at any time during the 20th century, so I wonder if someone like Korchnoi ever played in them.

  perfidious: <whiteshark> As the poker great Amarillo Slim wrote long ago, give your opponent a chance to do something that isn't good for him. Another outstanding poker player who's a decent chess player (Robert Ciaffone) once wrote, 'If you want to let a man hang himself, leave some slack in the rope'.

Somehow, I'm not surprised he wasn't the World Champion.

So I guess he means set up traps and all. This quote seems like it's easier said than done.

Such things are easier to arrange with knowledge and understanding, come to one's opponent and oneself.
