Kibitzer's Corner
Apr-14-06  Eastfrisian: Attila Schneider died on 07.07.2003 (heart failure). He had been seriously ill since longer time.

He was able to play a super match and in the next game he could fall down on amateur level. In the real life he had much problems.

Schneider's preferred openings were Sicilian Defense (Dragon and Sämisch Variation) and Modern Benoni.

Apr-14-06  BIDMONFA: Attila Schneider


Apr-14-08  brankat: A.Schneider was a very talented player, as his victory in a strong Hungarian Championship showed, but apparently unstable, and in poor health for years. A sad loss for Hungarian chess.

  whiteshark: His 3 volumes work on <Modern Benoni> is still pioneering.
Apr-14-10  wordfunph: <whiteshark: His 3 volumes work on <Modern Benoni> is still pioneering.>

...and his book Closed System of the Sicilian Defence

Mar-09-15  Pirandus: Attila Schneider was an excellent Theoretician of the Sicilian Defense. R.I.P.
