  whiteshark: Any backround information about <Lev Abramovich Aronson> ?
Premium Chessgames Member
  Xeroxx: apparently he was alot better with 1.e4 than 1.d4

Repertoire Explorer: Lev Aronson (white)

Premium Chessgames Member
  whiteshark: umm, yes, ... thanks <xeroxx>.

He looks like a good otb and a strong corr player to me. And I think he is no the classical cello player with the same name...

Premium Chessgames Member
  Resignation Trap: I can't find much information about him, except that he was born in 1924, and died in Leningrad in 1974.

A participant in the 24th USSR Championship, where he finished in a 4-way tie for last place. However 7.5/21 isn't bad in such company. See: .

Premium Chessgames Member
  whiteshark: Thank you very much,<Resignation Trap>! That Championship was really a tough field. And I saw Aronson in good company with Abram Khasin, a corr player that I admire from the early 80' (last century :D) - well that's another (longer) story.
Premium Chessgames Member
  Nosnibor: Surely the last game in the database is that of another Aronson. This game was played in 1977 three years after his death.
Dec-24-16  Sally Simpson: There is another Lev Aronson who was the subject of a book about his lost Cello.

Jul-26-17  Eagle41257: Lev Abramovich Aronson (1924 - 1974) - Soviet chess player, USSR master of sports (1956). Engineer. Participant of 10 championships of Leningrad.
