Mar-08-08  vonKrolock: Formerly known as <Axel Bachmann Schiavo> (in Spanish, father's name come before)
Premium Chessgames Member
  whiteshark: <vonKrolock:> I'm confused Axel Bachmann Schiavo

Is 'Bachmann' his father's name, and if so, is it also part of his (son's) name ?

Mar-08-08  vonKrolock: <whiteshark> So far I know, it's just a, so to say, formal inversion - in non-Spanish countries, the <Schiavo> would be simply the 'middle' name (from mother's side). Of course, there's a source for confunsion, in general...
Mar-08-08  Calli: <I'm confused> Me three. Is it Axl Rose or Randy Bachmann? :-o
Jul-26-08  Whitehat1963: His sister recently got married. Her married name is Kathleen Bachman Turner Overdrive.

Feb-17-14  notyetagm: Axel Bachmann Schiavo

Check out the last move played by Bachmann in this game.

Jun-09-14  waustad: Looking at his rating card he's made a rapid rise in the recent past. He's playing a lot now in Europe which may have something to do with it.
Jun-09-14  waustad: He has a Wiki page in German:
Jul-30-14  waustad: He won the V CAMPEONATO IBEROAMERICANO INDIVIDUAL ABSOLUTO: which netted him some more elo. He's picked up almost 100 pts in the last year and had a performance rating of 2754 at the tournament. Whatever he's doing to improve his game seems to be working. Anybody know who his trainer is?
Aug-18-14  zanzibar: His facebook page:

Dec-24-14  cro777: In 2004, Axel won the Paraguayan championship ... and nine years later (2013) he won the Paraguayan Chess Championship for the second time.

(Bachmann receiving his trophy).

In March 2014 Bachman won the 30th Cappelle-La-Grande International Chess Open, one of the most traditional opens in Europe.

<"A special congratulations to Paraguayan GM Axel Bachmann who broke into the Top 100 for the first time after several near misses.

The South American has been incredibly busy this year, racking up no fewer than 133 rated classical games! This month he had 33, from three Open Festivals in the US, and one in Spain.">


Dec-08-17  offramp: After the Floripa Open in January, 2018, he will retire from chess in order to follow his true vocation: teaching. The very best of luck to him!
