  Penguincw: Top seed Tamir Nabaty finishes in 2nd place at the Anogia Open. He scored 7/9 (+6,-1,=2), finishing behind only 2nd seed Alberto David, who he lost to in R6 (and it was a costly lost).

He went a solid 4.5/5 with white.

  cro777: GM Tamir Nabaty is a former Israeli chess champion. He won the Israeli Chess Championships 2013 after showing a great 2681 rating performance.

Nabaty is Wei Yi's opponent in the first round of the 2015 World Cup.

Oct-04-18  Caissanist: Is this the best Israeli-born player ever? All the other notable Israeli players that I know of have been immigrants.
Nov-02-18  fisayo123: Underrated, extremely strong player with a unique style. Hasn't been playing much these days. Hope he can become more active again and inspire us with his great games.

  sonia91: At 2688, Nabaty is Israel's new #1 player in the Feb 2019 list, ahead of Boris Gelfand (2669) and Maxim Rodshtein (2668). He should be the first Israeli-born to become the top player of Israel.
