  refutor: i was reading http://www.chesscafe.com/misha/mish... and i found this interesting passage in regards to comments made by alexander goldin

"MS: I remember I read an interview with GM Alex Goldin, where he said that a successful American player can make about $70,000 in a moderately successful year."

is that true? $70K is nothing to sneeze at

Oct-12-05  AlexanderMorphy: another player of the day i have never heard of!

  WannaBe: <refutor: ... is that true? $70K is nothing to sneeze at> I wonder if that's tournament winnings only, not counting if you write books (Eric Schiller) be a tournament arbitor (Eric Schiller) write articles/puzzles for papers (Nigel Short, Ray Keene, etc.) And participate in Geek Cruises (Susan Polgar)...
Oct-12-05  AlexanderMorphy: He is curenly 40 years old(Check his bio) <admiralnemo>
Oct-12-05  centercounter: GM Goldin is very talented apart from chess. He plays acoustic guitar and juggles very well. He is friends with a local chess store/school owner here in Orlando and comes to do simuls/lessons, as well as tournaments.

  DarthStapler: Although I did manage to win a pawn early on
Jan-04-09  WhiteRook48: that may have been a pawn gambit. I thought you never lost games. Seems this guy liked looking for gold.

  wordfunph: 1996 World Open Goldin-Yermolinsky 5 Minutes Playoff Game:

In the middle of the game, a table holding many spectators collapsed and people fell over each other like logs! The game went on as if nothing happened..

though i couldn't find the game here in CG..

  wordfunph: <CIO> mostly from chess magazines and books.

"In Russia and continental Europe, a Grandmaster feels he's on top of the chess pyramid. Here in US, everyone asks me for autographs, but no one provides a hotel room or spending money!"

happy birthday GM Goldin!
