  Benzol: Is Anatoly Bikhovsky the same player?
Apr-11-07  KingG: That interview in was very interesting, i would encourage everyone to read it. Here is a link that wont expire by next week:
Apr-12-07  vonKrolock: <Benzol> Partially retracting from my comment in the other page, the article gives the same transliteration as in this very page, so THIS would be the right page... Somewhat confusing <"never fear, Smith is here">
May-01-10  wordfunph: Anatoly Bykhovsky was awarded the GM title by FIDE..

Jul-06-10  I play the Fred: This guy has a great novelist name.
Feb-05-11  jahhaj: This Israeli player was subject to some racist abuse when trying to enter a recent tournament in the US.

Oct-26-11  Xeroxx: Is this guy old?
May-24-15  TheFocus: <The game itself has changed, too. It has become more concrete and tough, and contains fewer abstract ideas. Suspicious-looking but deeply analyzed positions are played, and we see that there’s something wrong with our perception, because they are completely playable. You know, when you play against the computer, it often seems that its pieces are badly coordinated and lacking protection, but then it turns out that they interact splendidly, only at some higher level of perception. And young players are learning this kind of chess> - Anatoly Bykhovsky.
May-24-15  TheFocus: <Chess has become much younger. Unfortunately, the career span of a chessplayer has decreased substantially. Botvinnik played championship matches after forty, but now a player of that age is over-the-hill.

In other professions a man only begins to flourish at forty, because of all the knowledge and experience he has accumulated, while a chess player has to look for a new job. Nowadays, players spend ten to twelve hours a day in front of the computer, and this is a luxury that only youngsters can afford. In return they get a huge amount of the most up-to-date knowledge, which gives them an edge over more experienced players.

In Soviet times a student would meet with his trainer two or three times a week, while now they can do everything on their own. One can explore the database, play on the Internet, analyze with an engine, find annotated games, follow all the news, etc. Chess has become more intense> - Anatoly Bykhovsky.
