Mar-11-05  Albertan: Thanks for the link MoonlitKnight
Mar-11-05  MoonlitKnight: <If Korchnoi can devote half-an hour a day to studying tactics at age 70+ what does that tell the rest of us?>

That Korchnoi has studied chess for at least 10,000 hours?

Mar-11-05  DutchDunce: LOL moonlit!

So I take it this Eloi dude is pretty old? I've never heard of him.

Mar-11-05  MoonlitKnight: According to, he's a 30 year old GM from France rated 2500.
Jul-18-05  TruthHurts: This guy is Almira Skripchenko's new boyfriend he was also a host of "diagonal" a chess internet tv program of the late 90's.
Jul-01-06  BIDMONFA: Eloi Relange


Nov-24-08  Xeroxx: <<<According to, he's a 30 year old GM from France rated 2500.>>>

Is that his Eloi-rating?

May-14-11  wordfunph: from NIC Magazine 2006 #1..

"Many chess players have become so successful in poker that they quit the royal game. GM Eloi Relange says he spends only 10% of his game-time on chess these days. The rest is devoted to poker..."

  perfidious: Here's a link on Relange from that field of endeavour:

Poker is the reason I gave up chess, though with the ban (ar least temporarily) of online play here in USA, I may return to chess.

Almira Skripchenko has been even more successful than Relange, as the above link will demonstrate.
