|Oct-03-03|| ||Phoenix: Possibly the happiest man alive right now! |
|Oct-03-03|| ||Benjamin Lau: Indeed. His ELO probably rose by at least 50 points, maybe 100. I don't know the formula. ;-) |
|Oct-03-03|| ||Diggitydawg: I didn't know much about him so I went on chessbase and found out he's a 41 yr old Israeli. There's a picture of him in the link provided (along with some cheesecake pictures of some female players. His picture is 4th from the bottom. http://www.chessbase.com/newsdetail... |
|May-21-05|| ||WTHarvey: Here are some puzzles from Alexander's games: http://www.wtharvey.com/huzm.html|
|Sep-09-05|| ||shortsight: No one care to drop by for the player of the day? No even Huzman himself care?!|
|Sep-09-05|| ||Eggman: I believe this man also works as a trainer, for example for 17-year-old Canadian grandmaster Mark Bluvshtein.|
|Sep-09-05|| ||alexandrovm: I will, after all he did won over Kasparov one time.|
|Sep-09-05|| ||iron maiden: It's kind of funny that Kasparov's crushed Huzman in a simultaneous exhibition, yet Huzman has the plus score at head-to-head encounters.|
|Sep-09-05|| ||AzaleaCastle: Diggity, thanks for the link. Note to self: find out where some of these ladies are playing and join that tournament pronto ;-)...|
|Oct-24-08|| ||Billy Vaughan: A very good try against Carlsen: Huzman vs Carlsen, 2008|
|Oct-26-08|| ||Bobsterman3000: This guy has done a decent job at the Euro Club Cup. He earned draws against Karjakin and Mamedyarov and had some chances against Carlsen, but couldn't press his wild attack home to victory...|
|Apr-10-13|| ||tedceldor: fluke win happens in chess = lucky day|
|Oct-09-13|| ||PhilFeeley: Missing this fine win:
Huzman,Alexander 2575 - Zvjaginsev,Vadim 2545
1.Nf3 d5 2.d4 Nf6 3.c4 e6 4.Nc3 Bb4 5.cxd5 exd5 6.Bg5 h6 7.Bxf6 Qxf6 8.Qa4+
Nc6 9.e3 0-0 10.Be2 Be6 11.0-0 a6 12.Rfd1 Rfd8 13.Ne5 Bxc3 14.Nxc6 Bd7 15.Qb3 Bxc6 16.Qxc3 Qd6 17.Rdc1 Rdc8 18.Qc5 Bd7 19.b4 Qxc5 20.bxc5 Kf8 21.Rab1 Bc6 22.Kf1 g5 23.Bd3 Ke7 24.Bf5 Rf8 25.f3 Rad8 26.Kf2 Kf6 27.Bd3 Kg7 28.h4 f6 29.Rh1 Rh8 30.Bf5 Rhf8 31.Rhd1 Rfe8 32.Rh1 Re7 33.Rb3 Ree8 34.g4 Re7 35.Rh2 Rde8 36.Rh1 Rd8 37.Rbb1 Rde8 38.Rbe1 Rd8 39.hxg5 fxg5 40.f4 gxf4 41.exf4 Rde8 42.Re5 Rxe5 43.fxe5 Re7 44.Kg3 Be8 45.Kf4 Rf7 46.e6 Re7 47.Ke5 Bc6 48.g5 hxg5 49.Rh6 Kf8 50.Kf6 1-0
I'm not sure I understand the final sacrifice, 49. Rh6. If black takes it, then Kf6, but I don't know how to proceed from there.
|Mar-11-15|| ||BIDMONFA: Alexander Huzman|
|Aug-11-15|| ||wordfunph: from Boris Gelfand's Positional Decision Making in Chess..|
<Alex Huzman goes to a dentist called Rubinstein. Once I prodded him, asking why he did not go to Tal's son, who is also a dentist and lives in the same town as Alex. "I am a bit afraid of his style. It is better to stay with Rubinstein.>
|Aug-11-15|| ||perfidious: Maybe Tal fils emulates the style of Tal pere as a mature player.|
|Aug-05-17|| ||technical draw: He was born in Zhytomyr. Sounds like a fun place.|
|Apr-10-18|| ||Check It Out: Ossip Bernstein was also born in Zhytomyr
