  WTHarvey: Here are some puzzles from Alexey's games not shown here:
Dec-14-05  joelsontang: he's 1 of the young players found in the book "the younger school of soviet chess"
Dec-14-05  cguerra: yep. he is pretty terrible though
Dec-14-05  dakgootje: Maybe i did suggest it earlier but <> isnt it a good thing to have a picture of the player of the day? :S
Dec-14-05  Trooper2: <cguerra> The guy was rated #47 in the World at one time - he can't be that "terrible" (at least, not to a patzer like me).
Dec-14-05  chesscrazy: If you want a picture of Alexey Kuzmin here is one (at least I think this is him):

Mar-08-06  BIDMONFA: Alexey Kuzmin

May-30-10  hellopolgar: he was Karpov's trainer, he was also Morozevich's trainer.

  Fusilli: <trooper2> <hellopolgar> I think you guys are confusing him with Gennadi Kuzmin. This one is Alexey. I never heard of him until today.
