Jan-29-06  BIDMONFA: Artur Kogan

KOGAN, Artur

Mar-08-06  SickedChess: He is better know for his boxing skills can ask Milov and Moskalenko to know why :)
Nov-06-08  dx9293: This is the guy who is behind the (new?) Olalachess Academy I think.
Oct-03-09  Edwin M: Yes. This is the guy behind the Olalachess academy/method. I recently attended a traing session by him at the Max Euwe-Centrum in Amsterdam. Interesting stuff. He is in the process of writing a book about his method in cooperation with Quality Chess. You should keep an eye out for it.
Nov-17-09  kooley782: Josh Waitzkin has an annotated game between him and Kogan on Chessmaster in his "Psychology of Competition" course. He describes Kogan as an interesting chess player who loves madness and craziness in chess. I can tell it. That game was really bizarre and wild. Fun chess like that seems to attract me more than dull, defensive chess.

He won today a rapid event in Cambrils (Spain):

Premium Chessgames Member
  OhioChessFan: He appears to prefer the spelling of his first name as "Arthur", and is listed that way on his FIDE card.
