Kibitzer's Corner
Sep-30-06  Autoreparaturwerkbau: 2 wins and 20 losses and yet he was 4 times Moscow champion?? How did he do that?

And more, he became international judge (IJ) in 1951 and then he died January 1st, 1951? He passed away when he was entitled an IJ?

That's 2 seriously weird facts about the guy.

Sep-30-06  dzanone: Well, notice that the games listed here are against some very famous players, including 3 world champions and several contenders. All those Moscow championships have obviously not been uploaded. As for the dates, perhaps the excitement was just too much for him.
Sep-30-06  Tenderfoot: I agree with <dzanone>. I mean, have you ever been an IJ? It's nuts, dude, seriously, nuff said.

  whiteshark: <and became an International Judge in 1951.> He must have been so excited about his appointment that he died by return.
Nov-16-12  bengalcat47: I was looking for Capablanca's well-known win against Zubarev, and couldn't find it for some time. In Renfeld's book The Immortal Games of Capablanca the name is spelled as "Subarev" (with an S instead of a Z) and in Golombek's book Capablanca's 100 Best Games of Chess Zubarev's name is spelled as "Subarew."

  Calli: <bengalcat47> "Z" seems to be correct. Russian sources spell the name Зўбарев in Cyrillic and every school boy knows that З is a Z in English. ( a Cyrillic "с" is an "s" in English ).
