|Sep-08-06|| ||DutchDunce: Wow, I'm surprised no one has commented on this guy. I've never heard of him myself, and his rating looks mediocre enough (for a GM), but it looks like he is a blitz wizard. He scalped some pretty big names at the WBC, including Polgar, Grischuk, Sutovsky and Carlsen! Nice job.|
|Sep-09-06|| ||ahmadov: <DutchDunce> He might also be a risng star.|
|Sep-09-06|| ||EmperorAtahualpa: Sergey Erenburg, Israeli GM, born in 1983.
Current FIDE rating: 2585
Current world FIDE ranking: 177th
Current national FIDE ranking: 7th (behind Boris Gelfand, Ilya Smirin, Boris Avrukh, Michael Roiz, Emil Sutovsky, and Evgeny Postny)
|Sep-09-06|| ||ahmadov: <Current world FIDE ranking: 177th> Not very impressive though|
|Sep-09-06|| ||EmperorAtahualpa: <Not very impressive though>|
I might be a modest man, but I think it is.
|Dec-03-06|| ||OlgaVerechtchaguina: Serega, Congratulations!
I knew that one day you will be GM!
My best wishes and GOOD LUCK!!!

Wow, I am glad I did not know that before I played him in an OTB rated game at the Blackstone Open (http://blackstonechess.com/event88g...).
I would have had a heart attack if I had known I was playing someone who had beaten Carlsen at blitz!

|Aug-17-08|| ||Eric Schiller: He thumped my Pterodactyl at the National Open this year. I chose an inferior line because I couldn't remember the theory of the main line. Nice guy. Game started 20 minutes late because TDs didn't know how to set the clocks.|

Yes, GM Erenburg is one of the nicest, most friendly chess players I have ever met. I wish him all the best in his future chess career.
|Aug-18-08|| ||WannaBe: <Eric Schiller> You mean either you or Erenburg knew how the clock works either? Does that mean either of you brought your own clock?|
|Aug-18-08|| ||jessicafischerqueen: According to the photo there, his rating <is> or <was> 2613--|
Contrary to what it says in his profile here.
|Aug-18-08|| ||WannaBe: <jessicafischerqueen> Do not trust the photo, I heard that, the photographer is an horrible chess player, and an even worse photo taker!!|
(The ELO could be FIDE, or USCF, depending on which one the tournament TD wanted to use...)
|Aug-18-08|| ||jessicafischerqueen: Thanks <MannBee>!!
Who is this ELO fellow?
Is he related to ARPAD?

“During my undergraduate career at UMBC, I gained a lot of knowledge, learned to write reports, papers and how to approach problems from different perspectives and in a more systematic manner. UMBC has outstanding faculty and research facilities, which helped me become interested in quantitative finance, reaffirming my desire to pursue mathematical education in order to apply mathematical methods to the analysis of financial markets.”
