[what is this?]
Maxim Dlugy was born in Moscow. He emigrated with his family to New York in 1977. He became a master in 1980, an International Master in 1982, and a Grandmaster in 1986. In 1984, he tied for 3rd at the U.S. chess championship. In April 1985, at the age of 19, he advanced to the interzonals (he played in the Tunis Interzonal), the youngest U.S. player since Robert James Fischer. He tied for 6th-8th place (won by Artur Yusupov). In 1985, he won the World Junior Chess Championship. In 1985, he took 2nd in the New York Open. In 1986 he played second reserve board on the U.S. Olympiad chess team in Dubai. In 1987, he won the National Open in Las Vegas. In 1987 he tied for 3rd in the U.S. Championship. In 1988, he won the $32,000 Samford Chess Fellowship. In 1988, he won the World Open in Philadelphia ($25,000). In 1988 and 1990, he won the US Open blitz championship. From 1988 to 1993, Dlugy was ranked number 1 in the world in the World Blitz Chess Association. In 1989, he tied for 1st at the American Open. He won the state of New Jersey championship in 1989. He was elected President of the USCF (the first Grandmaster to be elected President) in 1990 and was USCF president from 1990 to 1993. In 1991, he won the 2nd Harvard Cup man-machine tournament. In 1992, he was the 3rd highest rated player in the USA, behind Gata Kamsky and Gregory Kaidanov.
In the 1990s he worked for Bankers Trust on Wall Street as a securities trader. In 2002, he was the investment manager to Russian Growth Fund (based in the Virgin Islands), which invested in a magnesium plant in Solikamsk (Russia's second biggest magnesium plant; the USA buys 60% of its production). Garry Kasparov also served as a senior advisor at the Russian Growth Fund. From June 2003 to August 2003 he was the plant's chairman of the board.
In April 2005 Dlugy was arrested at Sheremetyevo airport in Moscow on fraud charges related to the Russian Growth Fund involving ten million dollars, and imprisoned in Russia. On December 20, 2005, Dlugy was acquitted of all charges.
Upon his release, Dlugy returned to the United States and resumed competitive chess. He played in the 2006 US championship, earning a plus score; he also became a member of chessgames.com (User: Maxim Dlugy) and posted several times in 2007. In addition, he established a personal website at http://www.dlugy.com/, which includes several of his annotated games at http://www.dlugy.com/games/. The website does not contain any information about Dlugy's activities since 2007.

|Oct-12-13|| ||LIFE Master AJ: Congrats to Dlugy, he has done what an army of FIDE officials could not ...
|Jan-29-14|| ||Penguincw: Happy Birthday to GM Maxim Dlugy!|
|Mar-27-14|| ||Moszkowski012273: Good luck tomorrow at the Marshall! (even though I'm a big Yaacov fan).|
|Aug-26-14|| ||TheBish: I couldn't believe that Dlugy wasn't listed in the drop-down menu on the search page. Is that because there are too many grandmasters now? But I saw other players of much lower rank than Dlugy listed. Hmmm...|
|Aug-26-14|| ||Howard: Perhaps it's a combination of his being relatively inactive nowadays plus the fact that (with apologies to his fans) he was never among the world's elite. Granted, he won the world junior championship, in 1985, but he was never a world-class player.|
|Aug-26-14|| ||MissScarlett: <But I saw other players of much lower rank than Dlugy listed.>|
|Aug-26-14|| ||perfidious: Agreed; while Dlugy was long one of the strongest players in USA, he was never quite a contender for higher things, though he fared better in qualifying events for the world title than Walter Browne, who was stronger than Dlugy at their respective peaks and received invitations to top-class events far more often than did Dlugy.|
One thing sure: they can both play a little, as I know from first-hand experience of sitting across the board from each.
|Aug-26-14|| ||RookFile: Larry Evans isn't in the drop down list, and he won the US Championship 5 times. Dlugy has to do some work to equal that.|
|Aug-26-14|| ||perfidious: Had this site existed in the 1970s, Evans would easily have merited a place in a drop-down menu.|
|Dec-25-14|| ||Caissanist: I know Dlugy returned to Moscow a few years ago, I wonder if he is still there. Doesn't seem like a good place to be doing finance nowadays, especially if you don't have really really good connections.|
|Dec-26-14|| ||Strongest Force: Max has good connections. Unfortunately he has one or two enemies who stir up trouble.|
|Feb-01-15|| ||Moszkowski012273: Dlugy is (and has been) in NYC for quite some time now I see him on a semi-regular basis.|
|Feb-11-15|| ||Moszkowski012273: Dlugy and Lenderman just had a best of 20 blitz-off at Columbia University. Lenderman took the match by a good solid three or four games.|
|May-06-15|| ||ketchuplover: Max might be at chessbook.net...if not him another GM is there as of today|
|May-25-15|| ||TheFocus: <When I am down in material and do not have a plan, I simply develop in the hope of finding one later on> - Max Dlugy.|
|Oct-13-15|| ||thegoodanarchist: At age 49, this guy is #72 on the world blitz rankings. Fairly impressive, IMO|
|Jul-23-16|| ||Moszkowski012273: He's starting a chess club on the upper west side of Manhattan,, it looks like it could be awesome!|
|Jul-24-16|| ||Moszkowski012273: Whoops... EAST side of Manhattan.. 81st and 1rst. Place looks nice!|
|Jul-24-16|| ||MissScarlett: <Please observe our posting guidelines:|
No spamming, advertising, or duplicating posts.>
|Jul-24-16|| ||Moszkowski012273: You gotta be a little more specific than that. I don't feel like any of those apply.|
|Jul-24-16|| ||MissScarlett: Is entry/membership free? If not, you're forbidden from posting any more about this club.|
|Jul-24-16|| ||Moszkowski012273: Well then I guess we'll just have to agree to disagree.|
|Jul-27-16|| ||Howard: Just met Maxim for the first time, at the World Open earlier this month. He was there for the blitz event.|
|Jan-29-17|| ||TheFocus: Happy birthday, Maxim Dlugy.
Imagine that! They named a magazine after a chess player.
|Jan-30-17|| ||OhioChessFan: For a very short time, he was very active here. |
