  WTHarvey: Here are some chess diagrams of crucial positions in Aleksandr's games not shown here:
Apr-10-05  WMD: Not to be confused with the relatively better known Attila Schneider.
Feb-21-06  sleepkid: Strong player, Famous win: A Shneider vs Kasparov, 1994, and nothing seems to be known about him. It also appears he's stopped playing??
