|Jul-12-05|| ||Good2BTheKing: Dean is one of the nicest guys you'll ever meet...at least he was 15 years ago...I only met him once at a tourny in NJ...he had the decency to play me during a break just for fun...just a couple of high school kids hanging out and playing chess...he killed me of course, but (like in all games) only at the end. :) I manged to hang in there with him for a little bit...but, like I said...that was 15 years ago.|

IM <Dean “the dream” Ippolito>
(by Elizabeth Vicary)
IM Dean “the dream” Ippolito spends most of his time preparing for his games not by his computer or by a chessboard but instead in the weight room. His unrelenting regimen of bench presses, leg curls and pushups give him the physical energy he needs to play a tough game of chess. He likes to play VERY positional openings with the white pieces. With the black pieces he used to play the Petroff exclusively until too many people told him how wimpy it was and too many 1700 players traded queens on move 5. Since then he sometimes plays the Sicilian to keep the critics off his back. Despite the fact that Dean plays some “wimpy” openings, I can assure you he is quite a good calculator and has a lot more imagination then you would expect from his repertoire. He is an extremely hard fighter, very resourceful and never gives up…..this has saved him a lot of games in the past. One of the biggest barrier between Ippolito and the higher levels is his penchant for giving too many easy draws away to stronger players, however if he overcomes this psychological desire for a draw, he could make some serious strides.
|Sep-22-09|| ||ROADDOG: <myschkin>: He may be tough in the weight room but he is the whipping post in Group B at the 2009 Spice Open. 0-4 in 4 games.|
|Sep-24-09|| ||BIDMONFA: Dean Ippolito|
|Oct-26-10|| ||rapidcitychess: Obviously this guy is a cheater! He uses Ippolito!|
|Jun-08-15|| ||Mfrankpsyd: His win against Charbonneau in 9/2009 which appeared in the NY Times as an endgame study was a shining star. I don't see it here but it's worth looking up - 2 Knights winning against king and pawn.|
|May-01-21|| ||GrahamClayton: Back in 2010, Ippolito launched a new magazine "Chess Player Magazine", which to quote editor Eric Cintron - "Our magazine is going to replace the old and boring chess magazines that are out in the market."|
It seems that CPM did not replace existing magazines, and had a short life - does anyone know how many issues were produced?
