May-12-05  SilverRook2000: Are you the Marty Appleberry that used to be friends with Alan Kobernaut many long years ago? When Alan moved to Chicago he played with us at the Park Forest Chess Club and he used to mention you frequently.
May-13-05  soberknight: <SilverRook2000> I don't know if Mr. Appleberry reads these comments. This is not, strictly speaking, his website. However, you can safely assume that the number of people in the world named Martin Appleberry is very, very small. :)
May-13-05  MoonlitKnight: Mmmm, appleberry. Sounds juicy.
May-13-05  MoonlitKnight: I know what you're thinking, but I didn't mean it like that!
Jun-20-06  Rocafella: What an enthralling biography. Nearly as good as <tpstar>'s! ;)
Premium Chessgames Member
  CherrylandCafe: That is the Martin Appleberry who is still friends with Alan Kobernat.
Jun-20-08  BIDMONFA: Martin Appleberry


Jun-20-08  hedgeh0g: Do NOT mess with fruit!
Jun-20-08  GEWKS: Thanks BIDMONFA for the link. The photo confirms the ID. I knew Marty in the 70's. He claimed to be from Huntsville, AL. Apparently he is now French.

  swordfish: How did this guy get to be player of the day?
Jun-20-08  jperr75108: hhhmmm. hm.
Oct-01-09  Buck R F Gordon: MA has at least 1 game cited in at least 2 MCO editions. I played MA and AKobernat at the Huntsville AL C.C. Others at the HCC were: KW WW JR MB CS CI RD(2) Roark. At least 2 of these were still in Huntsv as of 3-4 yrs ago.

  FSR: I was also sure Marty Appleberry was a Southerner, and saw him at some big tournaments in Chicago in the '70s.

  redlance: There is a Marty Appleberry,a master who was from the south ,and played in Memphis TN ,USA ,at the old Pillsbury CC in 1975/76.Moved to CA.

  Stonehenge: Appleknockers Flophouse :)

Jun-20-11  theodor: <<TheAlchemist>: Appleberry? Is this another genetically mutated fruit?> what about Applebee (aussy golfplayer)? a flying apple? happy birthday, dear appleberry! you bit me by 6 days
Jun-20-11  hedgeh0g: His cousin is Mickey Blackberry, the inventor of the Blackberry handheld device.
Dec-21-12  eleaticus: Yes, Marty's mother lived in Huntsville. I knew him and lived with him in Atlanta during the days of the hippy migration to that area. He played at the Aurora Methodist Youth Center and the Stein Club, both on Peachtree Street. When he first showed up I staked him to a tourney entry; he won, and I played my first tourney. Later he drove/delivered for UPS, and married and moved to California (in whatever order). Definitely NOT a Frenchman. When I checked the USCF today, they showed a top rating of 2394; strange in a way because his mother told me he had given up chess!
Dec-21-12  eleaticus: Oh. He played 1. e4, although I played a Benko against him once.
Dec-21-12  Shams: Family dog is Bugsy Dingleberry. Lovely labrador with a notable shaven patch.

  Gejewe: <Redlance> I have spoken Martin Appleberry on different occasions during chess tournaments in Paris about a decade ago. A very friendly and polite man, American resident in Paris. At the time he was an artist, a painter. Not very active anymore as a player, but investing a lot of time in chess analysis. Yaacov Murey lived at the Appleberry family's house for some time and his creative analysis inspired his host to a large extent. Another good friend of his and inspirator in the chess openings is GM Vladimir Okhotnik (IM at that time). Martin Appleberry was a driving force behind the "Carpathian Warrior" series, crammed up with original opening analysis. The title has been chosen as to honor Mr. Okhotnik and lot of the ideas are his, besides Murey's, and Lalic's. And Mr. Appleberry did a lot of administrative work, (computer)checked the analysis and generally inspired the project. The colourful illustrations in the books are his as well. It's a pity that only two volumes were published as there were still several themes waiting to be discussed. For example Martin told me that 1.f4 Nh6!? and 1.e4 e5 2.f4 c6!? have been analysed from black's point of view by the team (and were planned for inclusion in the second volume at first..)
