|Feb-08-06|| ||BIDMONFA: Ilya M Gurevich|
GUREVICH, Ilya M.
|Jun-21-07|| ||nolanryan: If I knew where you lived BIDMONFA, I would egg your house.|
|Jun-21-07|| ||Jim Bartle: If that's really you, Nolan, I suspect you'd throw him the high, hard one, and then grab his head and pound him with noogies.|
|Aug-18-07|| ||wardvet: Bidmonfa lives in Spain...Barcelona I think. Anyway, his "Kibitzing" (and I use that term loosely) is very annoying.|
|Aug-31-07|| ||lopium: Who is this player? He has played along the greatest player of our time!|
|Aug-31-07|| ||Jim Bartle: Gurevich was world junior champion, then quit for good in 1994?|
|Dec-02-07|| ||pawnofdoom: I believe he's the brother of Mikhail Gurevich and Dimitri Gurevich|
|Jul-28-08|| ||Fusilli: <pawnofdoom: I believe he's the brother of Mikhail Gurevich and Dimitri Gurevich> Really? He is a lot younger than them. Dimitri was born in 1956 and Mikhail in 1959. Ilya in 1972. Not impossible, though, but do you have a source?|
|Jul-28-08|| ||RookFile: He isn't. I was acquainted with him when he was a teenager. He still plays chess in the icc, his handle is junior.|
|Jul-28-08|| ||Strongest Force: Junior is very friendly. I talked with him all the time when i was playing at the ICC.|
|Jul-28-08|| ||najdorfman: I recall Ilya telling me that when he won the World Junior Championship the USCF, in its journalistic organ Chess Life, put a picture of a bunch of people on a cruise ship, on the cover! The cruise ship had something to do with a U.S. Senior Open Championship.|
To say the least, he was not thrilled about it.
I asked him if he knew what "U.S.C.F" stood for? Sensing a sarcasm coming, he replied that he did not know. So I told him:
UNALTERABLY STUPID CHESS FEDERATION
|Nov-27-10|| ||kramputz: Here is another great talent who quit chess. What is Ilya doing these days?|
|Jul-04-11|| ||technical draw: Here's what he's doing these days:
|Jan-09-12|| ||King Death: < pawnofdoom: I believe he's the brother of Mikhail Gurevich and Dimitri Gurevich>|
None of these players are related to each other. There was an interview that Dimitri Gurevich gave a long time ago where he mentioned that. Gurevich is a common enough Jewish last name in the Ukraine if not on a par with Smith or Williams.
|Jan-09-14|| ||perfidious: <pawnofdoom: I believe he's the brother of Mikhail Gurevich and Dimitri Gurevich>|
Was well acquainted with Ilya in the eighties, as we played several times and were in numerous other events together.
