Feb-04-07  BIDMONFA: Evgeny E Vorobiov


Feb-17-07  ChessVip: this guy like to draw early just to go home to watch tv!
Feb-22-07  ChessVip: another draw in just 7 moves with white! this fightless player must be banned from strong open!
Premium Chessgames Member
  Eric Schiller: This is why we need some form of the Gibraltar anti-draw rules in all serious events.
Feb-23-07  ChessVip: another draw in 7 moves, the second in a row! Vorobiov is a serious candidate for the fightless player of the year!
Feb-23-07  ChessVip: take a look: (eight draws with few moves and only 1 win against a 2400 player) the trick works for him, he gain elo with quick draws
Mar-20-10  Don Cossacks: GM Vorobiov performed excellently in 2010 European Championships held in Rijeka,Croatia. So <ChessVip> your argument doesn't apply anymore.
Jul-06-11  Antiochus: Very rare and difficult ending: bishop pair and pawns against rook and pawns_ all in the same flank. Vorobiov wins, see how...
