|Jan-14-05|| ||jahhaj: A quick search on google shows he's a Bangladeshi GM, the second from that country to get the GM title.|
|Jan-14-05|| ||Honza Cervenka: Today I have sent some of his missing games to chessgames.com. They will be soon in the database. |
|Feb-23-05|| ||fasting: here this guy gets beaten by a 13 year old girl:
D Harika vs Z Rahman, 2004
|Jan-24-06|| ||nasmichael: Age doesn't matter in chess. Only insight and experience matter. Vision and will do not come with age, or all GMs would be old when they attain the title. Kids would not have a chance if age made any difference, that is to say, if the older the player, the better the play.
And the sex of the opponent doesn't make it better or worse. Now, if the quality of play was poor, then comments might be qualified.|
|Jan-24-06|| ||nasmichael: Now the game itself was interesting, and it looks like the controller of the black pieces made a misstep in the end of the game. I have not seen a game with the pawn tension exhibited in this game, but I would enjoy watching a game like this live.|
|Jan-24-06|| ||BIDMONFA: Ziaur Rahman
|Jan-24-06|| ||killjoy: Ha! How horrible of you to say age matters not in Chess! Certainly it does, I say! Think of all those horrible hours you put into its study, who else but a child posssessses such free time? I say, how horribly wrong it is to ruin your child's hood with so much chess that this horrible wretch may embarrass Rahman. What horrible reward to earn in place of the pleasant hours she might have spent in the sun, with her friends, in the jumping of rope and hopping of the scotch in the schoolyard!!! Ha!|

Rahman earned the International Master (IM) title in 1993 and the GM title in 2002.
His playing style is solid positional."

a historic day for Bangladeshi chess!!!
|Nov-20-08|| ||Interbond: I think Rahman made a clever choice of opening today. It's not often Carlsen meets a Trompowsky!|

Chess development in the country will be given a boost with the arrival of Bangladeshi grandmaster Ziaur Rahman.
THERE are a number of interesting chess activities coming up in the next two or three weeks.
First up is the news that we shall have Bangladeshi grandmaster Ziaur Rahman stationed here in Malaysia for the next one year. Ziaur is Bangladesh’s second grandmaster and the leading player in his country at present. He is expected to arrive on our shores sometime next week and will be based at the Datuk Arthur Tan Chess Centre (DATCC) in Kuala Lumpur.
Why would we need a foreign grandmaster here in Malaysia? Well, it is to boost chess development in the country. We need someone who is experienced enough to be a catalyst to raise our game. Ziaur happened to be available and he was interested in the challenge.
Bangladeshi grandmaster Ziaur Rahman will be based in Malaysia for a year.
Moreover, he comes with good credentials. He is an active player in the regional chess circuit so he’s not one to rest on his laurels. He led Bangladesh at the Asian team chess championship in Kolkata last December, took part in an international chess event in Delhi in January, and made an impressive second-place finish in the Chennai open chess tournament this month.
Ziaur’s international rating of 2548 is high enough to suit Malaysia’s needs. We don’t need a super-GM here but we do need a professional who is strong enough to impart his knowledge and experience to our players.
Ziaur is a trainer at the Garry Kasparov School of Chess in Bangladesh and was the coach of the Bangladesh national women’s chess team. He has trained many junior players in his homeland and neighbouring India, and counts Sayantan Das, the current under-12 world chess champion who recently secured his first international master norm, as a notable student.
A comprehensive programme has been prepared to make full use of him during his time here. There will be various events and tournaments featuring Ziaur as the main man, with seminars and classes, including trips to reach out to all corners of the country.
Some of the activities planned will be individual chess sessions for serious players who want to improve their skill and understanding of the game, and group classes covering topics such as preparations for tournaments, opening, middle game and endgame techniques.
He’ll be giving chess seminars and training to suit all manner of chess enthusiasts, including parents, supporters, officials and organisers.

|Jul-31-13|| ||GumboGambit: Since hes from Bangladesh, i wonder if there is significance to his reluctance of playing Indian defenses. He often plays 1 e6 against 1 d4.|

This is, of course, strictly sub rosa, but since 1992, when cricket rivalry-engendered tensions between India and Bangladesh peaked and war was narrowly averted, a secret treaty has forbidden Bangladeshi players from using any Indian defense, while Indian players are prohibited from playing the Bangladeshi Defense.
Now there are new tensions, however, since Bangladesh recalled that there *is* no Bangladeshi Defense and realized it had been hoodwinked.
Meanwhile, however, players are still bound by the treaty.
