Sep-05-04  apple head: I know this guy
Feb-23-05  InfinityCircuit: So do I. He's an NM for those who are interested, and has a rare disease that has deformed his body, and possibly caused other abnormalities. It's incredible that he can reach this level despite this.

I've just uploaded one of his games against IM DeGuzman, which he sadly lost.

  whiskeyrebel: I've watched him play at a couple tournaments. Not only are his games exciting, I've noticed he seems to be very willing to chat with kids and let them benefit from his knowledge. I'm definetly a Michael Aigner fan for more than one reason.
Feb-28-05  InfinityCircuit: I wonder why the game I uploaded hasn't shown up. Saragossa (1.c3) is A00, correct?
Oct-04-05  GMAstle: Michael Aigner is probably the coolest chess player that i have had the opportunity to meet. I see him as one of my friends for his selfless dedication to the game, and a kind heart. If anyone is interested you can look at his webpage at fpawn rules.
Mar-11-06  shor: is M aigner he same as Michael Aigner?
Jun-26-06  Kings Indian: Yup fpawn rules! I know this guy too, he's very nice and is a good teacher. I'm not one of his students but i've seen him many times at the sacramento chess club and in tournaments. His rating is around 2300 now.

  Landman: Mike just had a great tournament at the 2006 US Open - 7.5/9, tied for 2-11 with 7 GMs and 2 IMs. He drew Fedorowicz in the last round on Board 2.
May-25-08  kobesarmy: he's a great player, and has taught some state champion students (Danya Naroditzsky)

  GrahamClayton: <GMAstle>If anyone is interested you can look at his webpage at fpawn rules.

Looking at Aigner's most played openings, is an apt name for his website!

Aug-15-10  rapidcitychess: This guy plays on ICC as <f5>.

  GrahamClayton: It seems that Aigner has put his playing career on hold to become a coach to several of the most promising junior players in the United States:
