  juan31: I dont now the reason that one of the best sites of chess of the world dont have the capacity to make contact to many Masters to ask some about his life, activity, opinions about chess and the permision to place here, to enrich the information about the Master and the database.
May-06-19  BIDMONFA: Jens-Uwe Maiwald


May-06-19  The17thPawn: How does a guy whose record shows 29 wins out of a 190 games make it to GM status?
Premium Chessgames Member
  perfidious: Looking at the roster of Maiwald's opposition, while many lack the cachet of having been world champions or even serious title contenders, they were no milksops, either.
May-06-19  The17thPawn: <Perfidious>- Ok so draw enough GM's and become a GM is the road to his title? Admittedly, I dont know the intricacies of acheiving the GM title but this seems a backdoor method at best.
Premium Chessgames Member
  perfidious: So long as one manages the necessary title norms, and attains a rating of 2500, GM is theirs. In other words, if Maiwald were to play the main group at Corus next year and manage an even score, or something like minus two, that would be a grandmaster norm. If he repeated the result or its equivalent, a second norm would be his (with 26 games played--believe the regulations state that 23 are required) and he would then only need the 2500 rating, if he had not already got there.
May-07-19  whiteshark: <The17thPawn> CB Megabase has over 1,180 of his games, i.e. we see here only a small excerpt. I suspect that he achieved the GM norms in 1993 and 1998/99 in GM tournaments in Budapest - non of these games are in the database here...

Regarding the low winning odds: If you play the Bundesliga (even in a weaker club), you still get the strong players. ;)

May-07-19  The17thPawn: <Whiteshark> - Thanks for the clarification. That seems a lot more plausible.
