  GrahamClayton: Mikhail Shabelsky was a doctor by profession, working in a military hospital in Kharkov between 1875 and 1882, and then from 1882 to 1889 in Kiev. Shabelsky moved to St Petersburg in 1899, he served in the Finance Ministry of the government until 1901, when he became an assay-master (person who tests gold, silver coin or bullion). He retired in 1907 and died at Yalta in 1909.

Shabelsky was the winner of the first major correspondence tournament in Russia, which was organised by the Moscow publication "Shakhmatny Zhurnal", and held in 1882 and 1883. He could be considered the first "unofficial" Russian correspondence chess champion.
