Kibitzer's Corner
Jan-19-14  thomastonk: In the early 1990s I played with him in a EM/M/GT group. The games with Russian players went quite slowly, i.e. 4 weeks per move in the average, I would say. Then he send his email address, and so our game became my first email game.

During the email phase of that game he let me know that he'll visit another corr player in Germany, who was a former team mate of mine. So, we met on a Saturday in Neuss, where the local club organized a team blitz event. He was joined by a few other Russian players, but they needed one more player for a team. So, I played this afternoon at board 2 or 3 of the famous CSKA Moscow.

Another anecdote of the same day. His host and my former team mate was stressed out and told me: "He only needs 2 or 3 hours of sleep per night, and then walks about the whole night in my house. I cannot sleep anymore!"

A nice man and nice memories. I hope he is doing well.

  perfidious: <thomastonk> Also played Lyukmanov, though it was in the late 1990s (EM/M/GT/014), so we used email and that considerably sped up matters.

In 1981, I began a World Cup preliminary section which had, amongst other opponents, Vasily Skotorenko. Dropped out of postal play before long, but I remember that, as you say, the moves took for ever to come from the former Soviet Union.
