Sep-26-12  Namawiz: Bassem amin's rating will continue to approach the 2700 barrier. Soon he will go past 2650 but how close he can get 2700 remains to be seen.

  Abdel Irada: <timhortons: Bassem amin beat rybka3/transwarp at icc in 15 minute time control>

Was Rybka TransWarp in the process of being assimilated during the game, or was it just a random cybernetic PCP overdose?

Either way, Bassem certainly pulled the wings off.

  Garech: Amin has a very original and unorthodox playing style - I recommend going through them to everyone; great evidence that you do not have to play mainlines to be a top level 2600 GM.

-Garech

Aug-02-13  Namawiz: 2013 African champion and now rated 2650+.
Dec-04-13  zluria: This guy is collecting some nice scalps at the world team championships. In the past two rounds he's beaten Wang Yue and Areschenko, way to go!!
Dec-04-13  dumbgai: He also lost a couple of embarrassing games to Baramidze and Durarbayli. What I don't get is why the champion of Africa is playing board 4 on his own country's team.
