|Apr-12-05|| ||fenno: Ujtumen's openings, according to this database:
against 1.e4 e5 always 2.Nf3,
against 1.e4 e5 2.Nf3 Nc6 always Bb5
One Sicilian against 1. e4, otherwise always 1. - e5
I guess this is about the best level one can reach by being a pure 1.e4 player (or a Ruy Lopez specialist). Or is it?
|Apr-12-05|| ||aw1988: Fischer perhaps? |
|Apr-13-05|| ||fenno: No. Fischer was not a pure 1.e4 player, to be exact, although it was a surprise when he played something else. |
|Apr-13-05|| ||sneaky pete: Morphy. |
|Apr-13-05|| ||Karpova: greco |
|Apr-13-05|| ||sneaky pete: <Karpova> Greco's collection includes 1 Bird's opening and 3 Queen's gambits, one of which (1.d4 d5 2.c4 dxc4 3.e3 b5 4.a4 c6 5.axb5 cxb5 6.Qf3 .. and wins) is missing in this database. |
|Apr-13-05|| ||Karpova: <sneaky pete>
ok, i choose Philidor.
|Apr-14-05|| ||fenno: Yes, Philidor and Morphy must be accepted, but they are 'ancient'. Who else? |
|Apr-14-05|| ||Karpova: beer
|Apr-14-05|| ||fenno: Well, beer is even more ancient, but yes, it has an effect on how chess is played even today!|
Are you suggesting that no chessplayer controlled by beer can play anything else than 1.e4 as white? ;)
|Apr-14-05|| ||Karpova: :-)
Bologan seems to be a good candidate.
|Apr-14-05|| ||keypusher: But Bologan doesn't often play 1...e5 as black.
Morphy played the French once and the Sicilian rarely -- maybe only once?
|Apr-14-05|| ||fenno: Bologan even seems to be changing from 1.e4 to other 1st moves. |
|Apr-14-05|| ||knightspot: but Ujtumen was alone in first place at the Interzonal in 1970, after three rounds. He was in line to be the next champion - the only thing that got in his way were those annoying last 20 rounds, and he ended up 22nd our of 24 :( |
|Apr-15-05|| ||fenno: Kateryna Lahno seems to be a pure 1.e4 player, and her best rating is better than Ujtumen's best. Lahno is not ancient either, so she is the epitome of a modern 1.e4 player. Or is she? |
|Apr-16-05|| ||Karpova: i think she'll expand her opening repertoire in the near future.
her main defense against 1.e4 seems to be pirc-ufimzev, btw. |
|May-22-15|| ||zanzibar: I believe the cover of the 2010 book pictured here:
is <Түдэвийн Үйтүмэн>, which is the Mongolian spelling for this player.
|May-22-15|| ||zanzibar: People have asked whether or not this player is still alive, wondering because FIDE dropped him from its rating list.|
Information about this player after he became inactive, and from his part of the world (Mongolia), is generally difficult to find.
I found an in-depth article, with a better picture of him, here:
It lists his dod as 1993, and I find the article credible enough to propose <CG> adopt this information.
(Sorry, but only the year is listed for his dod).
