Sep-04-05  WTHarvey: Here is a little collection of puzzles from Michael's games:
Oct-10-06  BIDMONFA: Michael Roiz

ROIZ, Michael

Nov-01-07  capablancakarpov: 4/4 at European Team Championships and counting... this guy is on fire! Will be in 2700 elo rating soon!
Oct-18-08  zluria: Michael is Player of the Day, today... I played in the same tournament as this guy once. it was the championship of the Israeli army. he won the event easily.

Michael is a very strong Grandmaster, and has represented Israel in several team events. He's a very promising young talent.

While (obviously) strong in all phases of the game, Michael shines especially in the endgame, where he's anybody's match. Here is a shining example: M Roiz vs Karpov, 2007

Sep-08-10  plimko: Roiz is an excellent blitz-player too
Oct-18-11  haydn20: <zluia> I looked at this game and Karpov simply blundered a piece in the middle game, resulting in a quick resignation--no endgame.
