Kibitzer's Corner
Feb-29-04  ConLaMismaMano: GM Andrés Rodriguez (2485 ELO) is the best player of history in Uruguay, very aggressive player, i would like to know where is he playing actually.
Apr-01-04  capanegra: Andrés Rodríguez Vila (Born in 19 December 1973)

The best player of Uruguayan chess history, and one of the best South American players at the present.

He learned the game at 4 years while he was watching his father playing against his uncle (any similarity with other cases is pure coincidence).

Started his chess carer at 10 years.

At 13 years he beats the Uruguayan champion Bernardo Roselli.

At 14, he finished fourth in the World Chess Championship sub 14 ( played in San Juan de Puerto Rico), and classifies as the better player of America.

At 17, becomes the Panamerican champion sub 20, and converts into the first International Master of Uruguayan chess history.

At 18 years, he gains world prestige, after finishing fifth in the World Championship of his category, playing against the best players.

At 20 years, he settles in Argentina (where he lives today).

In 1997 he happened to be the first Uruguayan Grand Master. Today, his ELO is 2485.

I met Andres more than once (Uruguay is a small country), but didn’t talk with him very much because I was a very shy kid, and, in spite of being only two years older, he looked like a giant to my eyes. He seemed to be a very nice person. I also have some beautiful games played by him which are not in the database. I will submit them when I have time.

  PizzatheHut: He's the A-Rod of chess.
Jul-30-05  capanegra: I submitted this game twice in the last year, but unfortunately it wasn't loaded, so I'll write it down in order to share it with you. It is a game Andrés played in the Uruguayan Championship in 1990 against the ex Uruguayan champion Jose Bademian. The game is genuine because I was there standing in front of the board among all the rest of people. The resolution is so nice that it was published in the newspapers the day after.
