|Sep-27-04|| ||OneArmedScissor: Who is this young lad?!? |
|Apr-21-05|| ||lopium: I don't know, i guess a Greek person. |
|Apr-21-05|| ||gadfly: His name is typically Georgian and yes, he is Georgian, not Greek. |
|Apr-23-05|| ||WTHarvey: Here are some win and mate puzzles from Tamaz's games: http://www.wtharvey.com/gela.html |
|Apr-23-05|| ||keypusher: Thanks <WTHarvey>. This guy evolves the most amazing attacks from the strangest openings . . . |
|Apr-23-05|| ||keypusher: <WTHarvey> in your first puzzle white is missing a rook on h3 -- no wonder I couldn't figure it out!|
|Apr-23-05|| ||WTHarvey: <keypusher> Thanks for the tip. I've editted the diagram and credited you. Much obliged! :-)|
|Apr-23-05|| ||Helloween: A thorough study of this man's games will show many examples of unbridled attacking creativity, particularly against the castled Kingside. He is a very risky and almost cautionless player.|
|Jan-22-06|| ||dakgootje: He looks quite young on the picture...|
|Feb-02-06|| ||itz2000: How old is he?|
|Feb-02-06|| ||keypusher: My hero! Here's an example of how he plays. Yelena Dembo gives quite a good account of herself too. |
Y Dembo vs T Gelashvili, 2004
|Mar-19-07|| ||James Bowman: He plays b3 against the sicilian very well the Snyder variation, I have used it with pretty good results on ICC, its funny how often a long pause happens after 1.) e4...c5 2.) b3 tic toc tic toc. ;o]|
|Apr-08-10|| ||wordfunph: Tamaz with peak rating of 2623 and currently sporting a 2621..|
he's 32 years old today..
|Aug-04-10|| ||cjgone: He plays an interesting alternative to the standard sicilian with b3.|

|Sep-19-10|| ||kingfu: I previously suggested that the B20 Sicilian be named after Moshe Czerniak instead of the convicted child molester Snyder, may he rot in HELL.|
Perhaps, it should be re-named after this Grand Master who has played it more than anybody!
And , by the way, is PLUS 44 with it!
Anybody out there PLUS 44 with ANY opening? Anybody?
From now until the end of time , for me, this opening will be known as the CG! Czerniak-Gelashvili opening. And I will play it! Death to the Sicilian!
|Aug-07-11|| ||Jambow: Tommy boy has been real active in the U.S. I think he has taken up residence here. At the U.S. open in Orlando he is listed as playing for New York, fourth player in the standings.|
|Aug-07-11|| ||Jambow: He used 1.e4...c5 2.b3 three times in the U.S. open alone so Czerniak-Gelashvili variation it is.|
|May-10-13|| ||kingfu: Now Tamaz is +53 with the B20.|
|May-10-13|| ||keypusher: <kingfu: Now Tamaz is +53 with the B20.>|
Definitely a case of the player making the opening and not the other way around. He inspired me to try it. Let's just say I am no Tamaz Gelashvili.
|May-10-13|| ||kingfu: The way to do it is going over ALL of Tamaz with the B20. I am working on a survey now. Pretty soon there will be no reference to S...... evilboy with respect to this opening.|
