|Mar-05-10|| ||Tabanus: Beliavsky recently won the tournament Gotth' Art Cup (Hungary):|
|Mar-05-10|| ||tud: I remember in 1984 Karpov was playing Kasparov and Soviet Union did not have the number 1 and number 1 for Olympics. And Beliavski took over number 1 board and one the gold medal for board 1 and for Soviet Union. He was one of the best by then.|
|Mar-06-10|| ||HeMateMe: In that Olympiad, both Ks were missing? A grand opportunity for the USA, we did not win?|
|Mar-06-10|| ||Tabanus: <HeHateMe> For the olympiads, why not check http://www.olimpbase.org/. |
Now click on "Men's Olympiads" (upper left) and select 1984. This should take you here: http://www.olimpbase.org/1984/1984i... and clicking on "Final group standings" should take you here:
http://www.olimpbase.org/1984/1984f... - USA ended third.
|Mar-06-10|| ||HeMateMe: tx, <Tabanus>, most informative. Those were the days--USA included Nick DeFirmian (bronze medal), Dzindzi, and Walter Browne. Spassky drew 12 of 14 games, the end of Boris as a relevant tournament player.|
|Mar-06-10|| ||dx9293: I'm guessing that Beliavsky is the answer to the new ChessBase "Guess Who?" quiz! <http://www.chessbase.com/newsdetail...;|
-It would have to be an "old" grandmaster (to beat people like Smyslov, Tal, and Petrosian)
-Who is STILL very strong (to beat people like Anand, Ponomariov, Topalov)
-Probably from the Soviet School, to be trained by Spassky and Kasparov
-Who emigrated elsewhere (to have recently been the highest rated player in his country). Beliavsky plays for Slovenia.
|Mar-06-10|| ||HeMateMe: Makes sense, but most of the players think it is nigel Short. Its an old photo of Short that has appeared before.|
|Aug-09-10|| ||suenteus po 147: Beliavsky wins his second consecutive title at the OHRA "Kroon" event here: Game Collection: Amsterdam OHRA 1990|
|Jan-20-11|| ||wordfunph: In his book Uncompromising Chess, GM Alexander Beliavsky related his first meeting with Botvinnik that took place in his flat in Moscow. After examining his games, Botvinnik subjected them to such scathing criticism that Beliavsky went out to the street and was so
mortified and burst out crying.|

(Possibly a good bio for Beliavsky - not my work, in case you are wondering.)
|Nov-22-11|| ||siggemannen: Great picture of Beliavsky, Karpov and Tal!|
|Dec-17-11|| ||brankat: Happy Birthday GM Beliavsky!|
|Jun-25-12|| ||Open Defence: he needs an updated bio|
|Nov-08-12|| ||Gottschalk: In Venezuela GM Beliasky won the 1st Libertador Simon Bolivar, sharing the first place with GM Andres Rodriguez Vila from Uruguay.|

Congratulations old Beliavsky!
|Dec-17-12|| ||lost in space: Happy Birthday, Mr . Beljavski. I wish you a very big celebration next year :-)|
|Dec-17-12|| ||Kikoman: Happy Birthday GM Beliavsky! Best Wishes! :D|
|Dec-17-12|| ||talisman: happy birthday to one of the greats.|
|Dec-17-12|| ||KKDEREK: < Open Defence: he needs an updated bio>|
Agreed! He made it tough for Kasparov during 83 Candidates
|Dec-17-12|| ||brankat: Best wishes for Your Birthday!|
|May-17-13|| ||hellopolgar: So both Alexander Beliavsky and Anna Muzychuk are Ukrainian that emigrated to Slovenia. It seems that Slovenia is a lot richer than Ukraine. (GDP Per capita is 22,192 vs 7,598)|
|Dec-17-13|| ||waustad: He's the only one left in the top 100 (he's now tied for 100-101) who was born before I started school and one of the few left who was born before I started college. With baseball the last MLB player who was older than I was turned out to be Charlie Hough. In chess the last top 100 player older than me was Victor Korchnoi, but he was that for a lot of people. Time passes. Happy 60th!|
|Dec-17-13|| ||HeMateMe: A man of the Karpov era?|
|Apr-12-14|| ||Benzol: If they ever do a movie about him actor Orest Blajkevitch should be the one to play the part.|
|May-06-14|| ||Zugzwangovich: I always wondered why Yasser Seirawan frequently called him "Big Al" in the pages of Inside Chess. In a photo of the USSR team at the 1982 Olympiad he looked rather slender and not very tall; only the diminutive Tal was shorter.|
|Aug-10-14|| ||KKDEREK: <hmm> Yes about 2 years younger than him. And now with 60 years old still representing greatly his country at Chess Olympiad, scoring +4 so far..|
