  whiteshark: Also a Russian search engine ?!
Dec-22-07  Resignation Trap: <whiteshark> <>>Also a Russian search engine ?!<<>

Cute, but <Georgian Search Engine> would have been more to the point!

Picky, picky, picky! :)

Premium Chessgames Member
  whiteshark: <Resignation Trap>: Yes, of course! It must be a <Georgian Search Engine>!

Damn it, I ruined the payoff. :D

Oct-11-08  Resignation Trap: I just discovered a nice trilingual website (English/Georgian/Russian) which covers Goglidze's games and career in detail: . It also features many interesting photographs which I have never seen.
Nov-07-08  brankat: <Resignation Trap> Thanks for the link. Yet another tragic, but also warm story, among untold thousands, of the Stalin years.

R.I.P. Master Goglidze.

  juan31: from my point of view of a simple fan of chess Master Goglidze Viktor,A. was a excelent player
Premium Chessgames Member
  MissScarlett: His older brother was Sergo Goglidze, one of <Stalin's hangmen>:

Confirmed by

No doubt, if a leading German player had a brother who was a senior Nazi and associate of Heydrich, I'd have heard of it before now.

Premium Chessgames Member
  TheFocus: Happy birthday, Viktor Goglidze.
May-19-18  zanzibar: <Missy> should have added this about Sergo's demise:

<In 1953, after the death of Stalin and downfall of Beria, he [i.e. Sergo] was arrested and shot (in Moscow, on 23 December 1953) together with a group of other NKVD officers close to Beria.>

OTH- Viktor's career choice was apparently better, allowing him to die from natural causes (i.e. heart-attack).
