Jan-13-06  Bobak Zahmat: <ahmadov> He lived in Russia. He has studied International Law at University. At the moment he lives in Afghanistan. He travels a lot. He loves travelling. He visits us in Holland a few times in a year.

In December he played in the 14th Asian Team Championship in Esfahan (there is also a photo of Zaheeruddin)

In February he will play in Aeorflot Open.

In March he plays qualification Matches for the coming Chess Olympiad in Torino http://www.chessolympiad-torino2006...

Jan-13-06  Bobak Zahmat: <ahmadov> Here is another photo
Jan-13-06  ahmadov: Thanks Bobak.
Jan-15-06  Bobak Zahmat: <ahmadov> You're welcome!
Feb-15-06  Bobak Zahmat: Zahiruddin has played during the Aeroflot Open, Group C. His result was 5,5/9. I publish his games as soon as possible.

  lostemperor: <Bobak> do you happen to know Mishtari?
Feb-15-06  Bobak Zahmat: <lostemperor> No, who is he?
Premium Chessgames Member
  lostemperor: A former number 3 orso Afghan player who has lived in the Netherlands. Maybe your uncle knows him.
Feb-15-06  Jim Bartle: He's no Leko, apparently, according to his record at the top of the page.
Feb-15-06  Bobak Zahmat: <lostemperor> Really? Do you know him personally?
Feb-15-06  Bobak Zahmat: <Jim Bartle> Do you mean Zahiruddin? Yes, that's true. He always plays for a win, I think he almost never plays a draw, I know for sure he has never offered for a quick draw.

  lostemperor: Yes I have played a lot with him. He still has a rating equivalent to 2100 Fide now (55). He must be >2200 then and has played in his country's team too.
Feb-15-06  Bobak Zahmat: <lostemperor> Cool. Well I will ask my uncle about him, and let you know what he knows.
Mar-31-06  Open Defence: maybe can incorporate some of Bobak's info into the bio
Mar-31-06  Bobak Zahmat: Well, the winning percentage is a bit lower after the games from Asian Championship is added :)
Apr-02-06  Bobak Zahmat: <Open Defense> I am trying to add as much info as possible with the help of <>, his photo is already been published like you can see.
Apr-13-06  Bobak Zahmat: During the coming Chess Olympiad in Torino Zahiruddin Asefi will play on the first board for Afghanistan. I will give you all an update on his progression and his results. After having performed amazingly at Calvia (8/11 score), he is ready to reach an even better result this time!
Nov-12-06  Bobak Zahmat: Sadly, Zahirruddin played a very bad Olympiad in Torino. One of the main reasons was, that there were too many players from Afghanistan in Torino and because of that he could play much.
Nov-12-06  Bobak Zahmat: My uncle is signed to play in the amateur Group of Corus Tournament.
Nov-12-06  Lt. Col. Majid: <Bobak Zahmat: My uncle is signed to play in the amateur Group of Corus Tournament.>

Wow. I am due to play there too.

What's his name so that I can make I crush him should our paths cross.

Nov-12-06  Karpova: <What's his name so that I can make I crush him should our paths cross.>

His name is Asefi Zahiruddin, i guess

Nov-12-06  Bobak Zahmat: <Lt. Col. Majid> What's your ELO rating? And no offense, but if my uncle is in shape he is hard to beat.
Nov-12-06  Lt. Col. Majid: <Bobak Zahmat:> Just kidding. Ur uncle doesn't need to be in shape to kick my butt:)
Nov-12-06  Bobak Zahmat: My uncle plays his best game against strong opponents, I don't know whether you have already noticed it yet, but he also played a game againt Krishan Sasikiran (A Zahiruddin vs Sasikiran, 2005), he lost that game, but the game was quite equal till the timecontrol.
Aug-18-14  zanzibar: <FIDE> has two players with very similar names:

11700025 Asefi, Zaheeruddeen (1965) AFG FM 1996 / 0

11700343 Asifi, Zahiruddin (0000) AFG IA 0 / 0

Curious, that a new and later ID is created for the IA player. They are likely the same, but maybe not.

If not, FIDE should clean up its records. (our player here) (the IA)
