  offramp: Soultanbeieff was a truly original player; it's a lot of fun going over his games.
Oct-04-05  DutchDunce: Sounds like a really yummy supper creation as well. "Sultan Beef"...mmmm.
Mar-03-08  MichAdams: Yes, I could just go a nice salt beef sandwich, a flask of milky coffee and a couple of jam doughnuts.
Sep-06-08  myschkin: . . .

Soultanbéieff was known for his agressive playing style, which sometimes resulted in short, brilliant games, but which sometimes led to unnecessary defeat. Some of his games are still famous like his games against [E Liubarski vs V Soultanbeieff, 1928 ] or [V Soultanbeieff vs Borodin, 1943 ]. Unlike many other players, Soultanbéieff stayed true to his attacking style when he grew old. He left his name to the Soultanbeieff defence, a line in the Slav Defense which was introduced in the correspondence game Alexander Macht – Soultanbéieff, 1931–32:
