|EVGENI ELLINOVICH SVESHNIKOV
(born Feb-11-1950, 70 years old) Russia
[what is this?]
Grandmaster (1977) Sveshnikov was born in Cheliabinsk, Russia and won the 2017 World Seniors' Championship at Italy(1). He is best known for the work he did on the Sicilian-Sveshnikov (formerly known as the Sicilian Lasker-Pelikan) together with Gennadi Timoshchenko 1.e4 c5 2.Nf3 Nc6 3.d4 cxd4 4.Nxd4 Nf6 5.Nc3 e5

He maintains an unusual opinion, in that he is against the handing over of gamescores. He believes that the chessplayers should have the right to decide themselves what to do with them (e.g. write a book with exclusive gamescores), and not give future opponents unnecessary advantages.

|Jun-16-10|| ||bharatiy: I got this link from Susan's blog. nice interview. http://www.scacchierando.net/dblog/...|
|Jul-14-10|| ||Tabanus: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Evgeny...
Latvian champion 2010 (as he was in 2003):
|Jul-25-10|| ||BIDMONFA: Evgeni Ellinovich Sveshnikov|
|Jul-26-10|| ||Tabanus: He was 5th yesterday in Miguel Najdorf Memorial (Poland) 17-25 July 2010:|
|Sep-27-10|| ||HeMateMe: When I saw this name in the Olympiad, I thought maybe its a common name in Russia, or, perhaps he is a cousin of the man who's name is on an opening...but it is the same Sveshnikov of old.|
Who is he playing for here?
|Apr-02-11|| ||Everett: This GM has one of the most straightforward opening repetoires in the history of the game.|
Opens e4 and plays the following against the 5 major responses:
Petrov Modern Attack
The first two fit together very well.
|Nov-03-11|| ||rapidcitychess: He's playing in the European team championship, apparently.|
|Feb-11-12|| ||brankat: Happy Birthday GM Sveshnikov!|
|Feb-11-12|| ||Penguincw: Happy 62nd birthday Sveshnikov!|
|Feb-11-12|| ||jurado96: great all or nothing player happy birthday from 8000 miles away|
|Feb-13-13|| ||wordfunph: "I can confidently say that the move 2.c3 has fed me and my family for almost 40 years."|
- GM Evgeni Sveshnikov
|Feb-11-14|| ||waustad: <HHM>He's often played for Latvia. There is also another player with the same last name on the 2010 team.
|Feb-11-14|| ||Penguincw: Happy 64th birthday to GM Evgeni Sveshnikov.
<He maintains a unusual opinion, in that he is against the handing over the gamescores believing that the chessplayers should have the right to decide themselves what to do with them (e.g. write a book with exclusive gamescores) and not give future opponents unnecessary advantages.>
So does he mean the fans can't view the gamescores (only the results)?
|Jun-30-14|| ||offramp: I'd like to know what happens to chess gamescores. I never see them for sale on places like eBay. But people obtain and collect them. Where from?|
|Dec-15-14|| ||Conrad93: I have been playing 2. c3 for the past few months. Very few people are aware of the Na3-Nb5 idea, so I get lot of easy wins.|
Great player and a great writer! Definitely worth the 30 bucks I spend.
|Jul-08-15|| ||Penguincw: Sveshnikov is playing a match against Karpov!
|Jul-11-15|| ||redlance: Sveshnikov, is writing a book on openings for blitz. These games maybe a test of lines.|
|Nov-05-15|| ||sonia91: He switched to the Russian Chess Federation two days ago: https://ratings.fide.com/fedchange....|
|Feb-11-16|| ||thegoodanarchist: A very strange bird is the Pelikan
Its beak can hold more than its belly can.
Happy Birthday to GM Sveshnikov.
|Feb-11-16|| ||eternaloptimist: Happy birthday to GM Sveshnikov! It's great to see that he's still playing in tournaments & still playing at a very high level! He played Karpov last July in a rapid match & did pretty well considering he played Karpov. Of course Sveshnikov lost the match but he did get 1 win.: Karpov-Sveshnikov Rapid Match (2015)|
|Feb-03-17|| ||rickcarnes: Since Chess is considered a sporting event in some parts of the world and certainly a news event in others it would be difficult for Chess players to claim the exclusive right to the broadcast of their games. But reprinting them in books and magazines or use videos where there is commercial exploitation of their ideas should net them a royalty I do believe. At the very least the attribution of their games should be required. However, a copyright can only be assigned to a unique expression of an idea so the game copyrighted would have to be the first one using the specific moves outlined and any succeeding games that were exactly the same could not be copyrighted. Perhaps if Grandmasters had royalty streams of income there might be more and better players interested in the game. After all, that is the idea of copyright, to incentivize the creation of art.|
|Feb-05-17|| ||sonia91: He just won the Moscow Open veteran's event with 7.5/9 on tiebreak from an IM : http://www.chess-results.com/tnr260...|
|Jul-27-17|| ||Eagle41257: He's been playing for Latvia more than 20 years, but lives in Russia now again.|
|Nov-21-17|| ||Tabanus: World Senior 65+ champion 2017, congrats!
|Feb-11-19|| ||eternaloptimist: Happy birthday to 1 of the most important theoreticians of 1 of the best variations of the Sicilian...GM Sveshnikov!! Mieses was the 1st to play it but Sveshnikov deserves a lot of credit for turning it into the great variation that it is today. He has 1/2 a century of chess tournaments behind him!!|
