|Jan-10-10|| ||ChessMasta2000: The death date brings to question the following problems?
Bio here & onn chessmetrics, date was taken from pathetic wikipedia, and german version nis worse ever:
follow all links: http://wikipedia-watch.org all info is 100%true!
: Social security death result does not display exact death date, it's most possible he died on January 25 1985! Social security is wrong many times, idiots gave george burns death as march 8, instead of 3/9!!!|
|Jan-10-10|| ||ChessMasta2000: Interesting story on bob hope, his wife & burns. His wife, now made it to 101, she said hope will beat burns, so he did by 11 days, but burns was special, to the end he performed, bob barely moved, if burns didnt fall in that damn bathtub he'd living atleast until105! His mind remainedsharp!|
|Jan-11-10|| ||Raisin Death Ray: <ChessMasta2000> Maybe you should do a few MORE posts on this site. You don't have NEARLY enough! :)|
|Feb-03-10|| ||ChessMasta2000: what, in usa death certificate procedure totally sux, they ll put day body was found, acccording to new york social security, jacob yuchtman was dead late january 25 1985, good to know he made it to 5o!
Today is when music was born, not died, the seed of 3stars brought good harvest thanx2 holly, valens, richardson.The roots r deep 2stay4goodd!
Weird, Eddie Cochran recorded song 3 stars up above, how God wanted the 3 stars, and on 4 17 1960 he died, wow 50 years, rip! God can wait, after all earth was not made inn 6000 years nor universe, one day for him is billion years, but dont say when one dies God wanted him, there's no proof, its subjective. Amazing how valens lost coin toss, he was youngest, la bamba in stereo exists, i made my own mix from 2 versions, also deleted mistakee in the middle of the song when some jerk did not sing in key! Valens did not want to record that song. But certainly Donna would never beat it! At the time dating (especially in the south) somebody else out of your race was unacceptable, senator stron thurman was total hypocrite when he changed his stance, y?HE HAD TO, ALL OTHERS DID IT!|
|Apr-17-10|| ||Robotics: According to police documents he died on the 25th but idiots always mess up days, above user is correct, after full investigation, correct day is january 25 close to midnight! Chessgames never cares of course!|
|Apr-17-10|| ||wordfunph: 1959 Tbilisi Soviet Championship: Jacob Yuchtman (1935-1985) had a winning position in an adjourned game against World Champion Boris Spassky. However, an "Appeals Committee" ruled the game a draw without resumption of play, because of repetition of position which actually did not occur.|
|Apr-18-10|| ||Caissanist: I have updated Yukhtman's biography from saying "At the beginning of the 60s he first moved to Israel and later to the USA" to "At the beginning of the 1970s ...", since he obviously was in the USSR through at least 1971.|
|May-03-10|| ||Caissanist: Does anyone know of a definitive source for Yuchtman's date of death? It seems to be given as January 25, 26, and 28 in different sources.|
|May-03-10|| ||HeMateMe: must have been tough in middle school...the kids called him "yucky"?|
|May-16-10|| ||Robotics: i found out HE APPLIED FOR CITIZENSHIP IN 1981!INFO IS PUBLIC DOMAIN, THERES HIS ADDRESS, WRITE THERE FOR BIRTHDAY! LIVED IN UPPER PART OF NY, HE WAS NOT POOR!|
|Jun-29-11|| ||Jacob50: finally correct day, reminds me of idiots at ss, put george burns march 8 1996!|
|Jun-29-11|| ||Jacob50: time is gift or people who die below 50 why,genetics a lil plays role but always watch out for doctors who barely reply, they are dangerous!
|Jun-29-11|| ||Jacob50: b grateful for efforts mr. chess champ started (world corespondence champ 1998-2003), for advices, etc!|
|Jun-30-11|| ||technical draw: This is the player that played in a New York park for money with a sign that said. "Play the player that beat Tal"|
Additional bio info in Spanish here:
|Jun-30-11|| ||chancho: This is the game:
J Yuchtman vs Tal, 1959
|Jul-01-11|| ||technical draw: Well maybe I'm wrong:
<Israel Zilber was Latvian Chess Champion in 1958. He defeated Tal in 1952 and once made a living in a park with a sign, "For $5 a photo or a game with the man who beat Tal.">
|Jul-01-11|| ||Jacob50: thats good if that brought him dough!@smart move, but im sure there were many like him, at least he played, i doubt many beat him!|
|Jul-30-11|| ||Jacob50: He died in NY. Thanx to old time user who disappeared Chess Champ his death day is corrected, kudos to CC, bravo bravisimo!|
|Feb-25-12|| ||CMBK: glad to know he died at 50, if it wasnt for dam kgb opresion, he would be gm easy!|
|Mar-01-12|| ||thechosenme: GLAD HE MADE IT TO HALF CENTURY MARK!
If it wans for damn comis, he'd be GM easy!
|Mar-06-12|| ||wordfunph: "In the 1950s the name of Yakov Yukhtman was well known among us young players. He undoubtedly possessed a natural and rare talent, one that particularly manifested itself in sharp positions, in which he was very resourceful and strong.
But in simple, classical positions his ingenuity markedly waned, and his play was less strong."|
- GM Lev Polugaevsky
* Sicilian Love - Chess Tournament Buenos Aires 1994 by Lev Polugaevsky
|Sep-08-14|| ||morfishine: Yuchtman was a natural player combining tactically wizardry with positional soundness. This formidable combination of strengths garnered Yuchtman a number of GM scalps including Averbach, Matulovic, Krogius, Alburt, Huebner and even the great Tal himself. |
A great pity that due to personal circumstances, his opportunities in chess were limited and/or denied. On a positive note, his contributions to chess are unmistakable and permanent.
|Sep-15-14|| ||Caissanist: Does anyone know whatever happened to all the annotated games Yuchtman gave to Leonid Shamkovich? I know that a few of them were published in Chess Life, a few more in Chess Today, but most of the rest never saw the light of day.|
|Apr-14-15|| ||Marcelo Bruno: <Caissanist> I have some of them, that I got from a copy of Shamkovich's article (in collaboration with Khodarkovsky) for the Inside Chess magazine. This I received from I colleague I have in São Paulo many years ago and under his request I translated to Portuguese.|
|Jan-14-18|| ||morfishine: Yuchtman was a great player! Thank you <CG> for remembering him as Player of the day today!|
