Apr-21-04  OverDjinn: Edhi,

if by chance you're aware of this site and see this, email Chessic89 from Pogo. I lost your email. :( Or come back and play. I've been over at Yahoo under musicalhug. Look me up if you're in the mood.

Good game against Torre in the year I was born.

May-02-05  superiorNOshow: I would suggest to chessgames to put in Handoko Vs. Suttles as one of his notable games.

Indonesian GM <Edhi Handoko> (born 1960)

Fide Card:

National champion 1978, 1980, 1984. MI 1982, 1991

The fourth Indonesian GM. Has been dubbed as Indonesian new star after winning national championship as a teenager. But as what happened to many Indonesian talents, he somewhat failed to live up the expectation. True he finally got his GM. But it happened when his age had already caught up. However he is still the man to beat in domestic events.


Feb-17-09  Eastfrisian: According to English Wikipedia GM Handoko died today on February 17, 2009 after a heart attack.
Feb-17-09  Karpova: From "JakartaGlobe Sports", February 17 2009, Ami Afriatni:

<Indonesian chess suffered a sudden loss on Tuesday when Grand Master Edhi Handoko died at the Cibinong Hospital in Bogor, West Java Province, following a heart attack. He was 48.

Edhi will be buried at Bonoloyo Cemetery in Solo, Central Java Province, on Sunday.

The celebrated champion, who began his career in the mid-1970s, was know to challengers and fans alike as a man who not only understood the game, but as a man who passed a wealth of knowledge on to the next generation.

He earned his National Master title in 1978, before progressing to both FIDE Master and International Master 1982. He then became Indonesia’s fourth Grand Master in 1994 after reaching an Elo rating of 2,495.>


<In early 2008, Edhi switched his career focus from tournament play to mentoring younger players

“Edhi set up the curriculum applied in my chess school as a blueprint for the regeneration of Indonesian chess players,” Utut said. “I might say he played a main role in creating international players like the youngest Grand Master, Susanto Megaranto, and Indonesia’s first Woman Grand Master, Irene Kharisma Sukandar.”

Edhi is survived by his wife, Endang Hapsari Setyaningsih, and two sons, Ekona Sulistya Wibowo, 22 and Okana Razi Giovani, 12.>
