Apr-19-07  vonKrolock: <"He was the first ever Uzbek, and thus arguably the first ever Asian grandmaster. Born in 1954 Georgy Agzamov was not just a strong player the nightmare of top GMs he was also a great ambassador for chess."> Fine illustrated report on the First International Agzamov Memorial http://www.chessbase.com/newsdetail...
Jul-20-07  Grim Reaper: He came as the crow flies.
Sep-06-07  D4n: Life can be tragic.
Sep-06-07  centercounter: The Agzamov variation in the Alekhine's Defense is one of Black's strongest responses to the Modern system. 1. e4? Nf6! 2. e5 Nf5 3. d4 d6 4. Nf3 Bg4 5. Be2 c6!

The point is that after 6. O-O, then Bxf3! 7. Bxf3 dxe5 gives Black play against the Pe5. Black isn't winning, by any stretch, but it is not easy for White to demonstrate the usual "White" advantage, either.

Naturally, White has other options than 6. O-O. Rather than make this an encyclopedic post, I'll just say that White gains nothing significant. There are lines where Black forfeits the right to castle after a Queen exchange at d8, but that comes to nothing special for White, either.

  whiteshark: <DarthStapler: 2...Nf5 is illegal, centercounter> It's <2...Nd5 <>>, of course. d+f are closer of the keyboard than on the chessboard. :D
Sep-06-10  miguelito: first asian gm ? no , the first asian gm was eugenio torre 1974 , and rosendo balinas 1976 , both from phillipines .

Jun-27-13  csmath: There is an important game Agzamov lost to Maliamov in 1976 in exchange Grunfeld that is missing here in this database. As if he had not played any game in 1976. :-)
