|Jul-26-05|| ||Gypsy: Trener of Smyslov in late 1940's. His theoretical speciality was utilization of weak collor-complexes in middle game. (ref. Kotov-Yudovich)|
|Jul-26-05|| ||euripides: <utilization of weak collor-complexes in middle game> As in Alatortsev vs Capablanca, 1935|
|Jul-27-05|| ||Gypsy: <euripides> Smooth play by Black and rather dis-harmonious by White. Maybe this game inspired Alatorcev to study such things. Of course, it is easy to like an idiot when losing to Capablanca.|

aka <V. Alatorcev> never got the opportunity to compete outside the Soviet Union. He was awarded an Honorary Emeritus Grandmaster title by FIDE in 1983. This was clearly well deserved, since his win at Leningrad 1938 and his second place in the Soviet Championship 1933 were definitely strong Grandmaster results.

Very interesting. Have there been any other players who have also been awarded an Honorary GM title by FIDE?
|Apr-22-10|| ||HSOL: GrahamClayton:
I'm quite certain FIDE awarded several Grandmaster Emeritus titles in the early-mid-80s.
I've found on wikipedia Jonathan Penrose and Harry Golombek mentioned as Grandmaster Emeritus.
Another one is Erik Lundin who got the GM title in 1983, probably at least 20 years after he was last competitive internationally.
I guess Alexander Konstantinopolsky also is one considered he got the GM title in 1983 while being born 1910.
Lodewijk Prins and Raul Sanguinetti got the GM title retroactive in 1982. FIDE's own wording according to an Informator.
