Kibitzer's Corner
May-26-05  MrSifter: Is this guy a grandmaster or a fide master? His name comes up a lot but I recently saw him listed as an FM. If he is, he's much stronger than that. For anyone doubting this, check out the game against Ivanov in the 2004 US Championships. Now that's an attack!
May-27-05  iron maiden: He's an FM, but he's got a couple of IM norms.
Dec-11-08  dumbgai: Wrong Zilberstein for the first two games? Someone playing in Juniors in 1996 probably wasn't around to play GMs in the early 1970s. By the way he's an IM now.
May-04-09  Mr. Fahey: In 1994, Dmitry came into my life as a 13 year old master from Ukraine while teaching math and building a chess program at International Studies Academy. He instantly put our chess club on the map. I was soon "adopted" by his family, and his mom, babushka and dedushka and I became good friends. We lived a few blocks away at Ocean Beach, so I drove Dmitry to school each day. In his freshman year, Dima became the youngest Denker Trophy winner in California history--top K12 chess player in the State--winning it 3 out of 4 years. He has always been a star, not only as a chess player but academically and in his practical philosophic thoughts on the world. Dima went on to U.C. Berkeley and was a collegiate chess star and brilliant student for 4 years. He will soon become a GM, despite working full time, only delaying the inevitable. Despite a busy schedule, Dmitry volunteers his time for simuls at Lowell HS where I teach math and sponsor the chess club. Dima is one of my favorite people in the world, and had made my life even more exciting than it already is! Dmitry is not just a GM in chess, but also a GM human being, a real class act. A shout out: Thanks Dima for being there for me!
