[what is this?]
Vasily Mikhailovich Byvshev was born February 18, 1922 in Starovo, USSR. He achieved some success in Soviet tournament chess in the 1950s, placing fourth in the 1954 Leningrad Championship and qualifying three times for the USSR Championship (in 1952, 1954 and 1956). However, Byvshev is probably best-known for his accomplishments as a chess teacher. He helped train Women's World Champion Lyudmila Rudenko and, later in life, he also trained future FIDE world champion Alexander Khalifman.

|May-06-17|| ||zydeco: Byvshev was a very exciting player - part of the Wild Man school of Soviet chess in the '50s. |
Cherepkov, who worked as a student with Byvshev, describes him as being a very difficult character, hard to collaborate with (although Cherepkov also seems to be very fond of him). He mentions that Byvshev was epileptic.
