|Mar-29-05|| ||Appaz: LOL!
Great fighting from Gurevich.
And still I see people on <cg.com> go on about how you offend your opponent when playing with a piece down. I guess those folks are typical quitters.

|Dec-10-05|| ||aw1988: I'm still trying to figure out what makes him look so much like Kasparov...|
|Dec-10-05|| ||KingG: <aw1988> You think he look like Kasparov? This guy looks like Kasparov: Dimitri Gurevich.|
|Dec-10-05|| ||aw1988: Oh, damn it. I mixed them up. Yes, that one.|
|Dec-10-05|| ||KingG: By the way does anyone know if they are related?|
|Jan-09-06|| ||WTHarvey: Mikhail has been selected by FIDE as one of 16 to participate in the 2007 World Championship qualification matches: http://www.fide.com/news.asp?id=896|
Imo, Mikhail looks a little like Groucho Marx.

Imo, Mikhail looks a little like Groucho Marx.> He hasn't been selected, he earned this by playing in the FIDE World Cup (2005). He finished there 8th by the way.|
|Apr-06-06|| ||Bobak Zahmat: Gurevich is probably one of the candidates to win the European championsship.|
|May-30-07|| ||sheaf: <le héros> --<les héros>|

It would be nice to have the games included in the database.
|Feb-22-08|| ||jmi: One of my favourite French players of modern times is the player of the day!|
Thank you, cg!
|Feb-22-08|| ||HolyKnight: Wow maybe if I get started I can get a 2600 rating sincc Gurevich is a year younger than me.|
|Mar-17-08|| ||russep: What's the next tournament he will be playing in?|
|Apr-23-08|| ||Knight13: Gurevich is getting out of 2600s soon.|
|Oct-07-09|| ||GrahamClayton: <Benzol>An IM in 1985 he was USSR Champion (after playoff and tie-break) in the same year. |
According to Cafferty and Taimanov in "The Soviet Championships", Gurevich, Gavrikov and Chernin finished =1st with 11/19. A three way play-off ended with all games being drawn. An unknown journalist announced that there would be no further play and that Gurevich would win the title, based on his superior tie-break in the actual Championship. The arbiters were annoyed by the journalist's claim, but accepted his decision anyway!
|Oct-08-09|| ||Benzol: <GrahamClayton> Thanks. I actually have the Cafferty and Taimanov book but I think I posted that before I had obtained it. I can never remember everything I read these days. I'm just getting too old.|
|May-30-10|| ||BradMajors: Hello.|
