Apr-25-04  Artificer: He won the St. Petersburg Championship... So who is this guy?
Nov-14-05  lopium: Should ask an expert. This man didn't seems to eat a lot.
Jun-25-06  Kings Indian: Yeah wow this guy look skinny O.o
Premium Chessgames Member
  offramp: He's thin, he has pink fingers and he wears glasses. But he has won a pawn, so he's all right by me.
Jun-25-06  BIDMONFA: Valery A Loginov

LOGINOV, Valery A.

Jun-25-06  dakgootje: <offramp> He could have sacced a bishop for it... ;-)
Dec-03-06  Karpova: More Loginov-pics:
(Evgeny Shaposhnikov is sitting there)

Dec-13-06  wasspwot: dodgy haircut. Big glasses. Nice sweater.
Jan-03-07  Silverstrike: Interesting, I assume you're talking about an earlier picture of this guy, as this new picture shows him without glasses, and not being overly thin.
Jan-03-07  TheBB: And also hard to determine if he's won a pawn or not.
Jan-04-07  Silverstrike: Oh, LOL now I see, his glasses are by his side. :D
Apr-13-07  bauernfresser: Back in 1992, when Uzbekistan won the silver medal at the Chess Olympiad in Manila, Loginov was playing on Board 1.

  wordfunph: <bauernfresser: Back in 1992, when Uzbekistan won the silver medal at the Chess Olympiad in Manila, Loginov was playing on Board 1.>

and GM Loginov took most of the thrashings with +1=6-6 while his IM teammates terrorized the lower boards..

Mar-27-12  King Death: <wordfunph> And the best player on that team in the end was their board 3 who later was known as Alexander (Nenashev) Graf though Grigory Serper had a good career too.

  Penguincw: Happy 58th birthday to the <POTD>: gm Valery A Loginov.
Dec-13-13  waustad: Offramp already took the obvious pun.
