Nov-16-06  stanleys: A very strong Soviet player with a tragic destiny.I'm searching for some articles about him;as soon as I find something I'll post it here
Nov-20-06  stanleys: In 1940 he shares the 2nd place in the very strong Leningrad's championship: (the last table)

Dec-28-06  Karpova: Can you tell us more about his destiny?
Jul-22-07  stanleys: Unfortunately couldn't find the score of the following game (perhaps somebody knows this opening line?)

  Benzol: I think this sort thing has arisen before. BTW why does the bio say died -50 when it's filled in correctly as 1950 in the editors bio block?
Jul-24-07  stanleys: More successes in Leningrad's championships: in 1946 he shares the third place. It was a particularly strong tournament,won by Tolush; Levenfish was second.Klaman,Taimanov,Chekhover,Lisitsyn,Furman,Kopyl- ov,Stoliar also played there 17.htm

In 1949 the championship was even stronger (Bondarevsky,Shamkovich,Zhukhovitsky,Borisenko played too) - Vasilev tied for the second place 20.htm
