Kibitzer's Corner
Jul-04-05  Knight13: This guy defeated Ruslan Ponomariov in the Efim Geller Memorial! That's pretty good. A strong 2400 beats a strong 2600.

  TheAlchemist: Some of his most brilliant wins aren't in the database. Take these two examples:

<Podgaets - Vladimir Gusev, USSR 1974>

1.Nf3 d5 2.g3 Nf6 3.Bg2 Bf5 4.b3 e6 5.Bb2 Be7 6.O-O O-O 7.d3 a5 8.a4 h6 9.Nbd2 Nbd7 10.e3 Bh7 11.Qe2 Nc5 12.Ne5 Nfd7 13.Nxd7 Nxd7 14.e4 c6 15.Kh1 Bf6 16.e5 Be7 17.f4 Rc8 18.g4 Re8 19.Nf3 c5 20.Rad1 Nb8 21.Bh3 Nc6 22.f5 exf5 23.gxf5 Bf6 24.Qg2 Nxe5 25.Nxe5 Bxe5 26.f6 Bg6 27.Qxg6 fxg6 28.f7+ Kh7 29.fxe8=Q Qxe8 30.Bxe5 Rc6 31.Rde1 Qe7 32.Bg3 Qg5 33.Be6 Qd2 34.Bxd5 Rf6 35.Rg1 h5 36.Re7 Rf5 37.Be4 Rg5 38.Re5 Kg8 39.Rxg5 Qxg5 40.Bc7 Qd2 41.Bxg6 Qe2 42.Be4 Qxc2 43.Be5 Qxb3 44.Rxg7+ Kf8 45.Rg1 c4 46.dxc4 Qxc4 47.Bxb7 Qxa4 48.Bd6+ Ke8 49.Rc1 Qd4 50.Bc6+ Kd8 51.Bg3 h4 52.Be1 a4 53.Bc3 Qf4 54.Re1 Qf5 55.Be5 Qc2 56.Bg2 Qc4 57.Rd1+ Ke8 58.Bf6 Qg4 59.Re1+ Kd7 60.h3 Qf4 61.Rf1 Qb4 62.Bf3 Kd6 63.Bg4 Qe4+ 64.Kh2 Qh7 65.Rf2 a3 66.Rd2+ Kc5 67.Re2 Kc4 68.Be6+ Kd3 69.Re5 Qc7 70.Kg2 Qc6+ 71.Kf2 Qc1 72.Bf5+ Kc4 73.Be6+ 1-0

<Podgaets - Gennady Zaichik, USSR 1986>

1.d4 Nf6 2.Nf3 e6 3.c4 c5 4.d5 exd5 5.cxd5 d6 6.Nc3 g6 7.e4 Bg7 8.Be2 O-O 9.O-O Re8 10.Nd2 Nbd7 11.a4 Ne5 12.Qc2 Nh5 13.Bxh5 gxh5 14.Nd1 b6 15.Ra3 Ba6 16.Re1 c4 17.Ne3 Nd3 18.Rf1 Rc8 19.Nf5 Be5 20.f4 c3 21.fxe5 cxb2 22.Nh6+ Kg7 23.Qxb2 Rxc1 24.Nf5+ Kg8 25.Rxd3 1-0

The latter was the 8th best game (undeservedly low, IMO) in the Informant no.42, it received 10 points by Unzicker and Ribli.

Jun-16-08  Vollmer: As I recall , Mr.Podgaets (who was Karpov's trainer) has 2 of the 3 norms needed to receive the GM title . And his 2 norms came about 30 years apart !
May-15-09  stanleys: Sad news: Mr Podgaets died yesterday :(

May-15-09  Eastfrisian: R.I.P. Often heard, but seldom sawn.
Jan-23-12  LawrenceBernstein: I met Podgaets in Odessa in 2003, a very lovely man, may he rest in peace.
Jul-23-12  LoveThatJoker: 1976 Ukranian Champion Misha Podgaets, today you are remembered!
