|Jul-09-12|| ||PhilFeeley: <PP> I wondered the same thing. Chessvibes reports it <was the result of his refusal to sign an undertaking ... with which the Turkish Chess Federation requests all of its members to ask permission to play abroad. Besides, by signing the player states that he is responsible for all financial consequences of his participation in a tournament abroad, that he will "act in accordance with the responsibilities of a national athlete" and that he won't commit "any activity against Turkish Republic".>|
See http://www.chessvibes.com/reports/s... and the links for further info.
|Jul-09-12|| ||PhilFeeley: Debate should rage here. Condemnation of this heavy-handed nonsense should be swift and continuous.|
|Jul-09-12|| ||Poisonpawns: <PhilFeeley> Thanks, I had no idea what he was suspended for.|
|Aug-09-12|| ||bharatiy: this is exactly a reason why chess can not gain more popular support! Unreasonable federations. FIDE has a golden opportunity here, they should threaten TCF with derecognition unless this ban is not lifted. Chances of anything similar happening are almost zero, while chances of FIDE condoning TCF actions are far higher.|
|Aug-09-12|| ||perfidious: Ilyumzhinov will act when there's something in it for him, not out of a sense of common decency. Throw him in with the late, unlamented Florencio Campomanes and have done with it. Pity there hasn't been a man of principle and humanity at the helm of FIDE since Fridrik Olafsson got forced out.|
|Aug-09-12|| ||Cibator: The Association of Chess Professionals has evidently got in behind him - see here:|
- though how much clout they are capable of exercising I wouldn't like to say.
|Aug-09-12|| ||bharatiy: why would gcf take orders from tcf? He should file a case against GCF and unfortunately against organizers as well.|
|Oct-10-12|| ||Abdel Irada: It's hard to believe, looking at this picture, that Atalik is actually nearly eight months my junior.|
Maybe the pressures of grandmasterhood have overtaken him. I might be inclined to say it was being married to a much younger woman, except that my own wife is 14 years younger than I, which would tend to undermine this line of reasoning. :-S
|Oct-10-12|| ||Abdel Irada: In fairness, I should add that my own hair has a rather silvery sheen of its own, as you can see here: http://www.moralintelligence.net/si...|
However, in my case, grandmasterhood is no factor.
|Oct-10-12|| ||Gottschalk: One of his best wins Miles vs S Atalik, 1996 .Very nice Bxe3 after Ne4|
|Jan-28-13|| ||PhilFeeley: I see he did manage to play in 2012, despite the "ban". It's an open question whether he will play for Turkey in an Olympiad again. Maybe he'll go to another country like he did once before. Any other country would be glad to have him and the Turkish chess officials can eat sour grapes.|
Too bad he didn't get to play in Gibraltar.
|May-21-13|| ||PhilFeeley: I see he's the top rated (so far) to play in July here:|
|Jul-12-13|| ||PhilFeeley: It's good to see he's doing well there. He's in a fight for first place:|
|Jul-24-13|| ||csmath: Looks like the model game in Grunfeld Sokolsky line Atalik played and won against Robert Ruck from Bled Olympiad is missing in this database.|
|Jul-25-13|| ||nescio: <csmath: Looks like the model game in Grunfeld Sokolsky line Atalik played and won against Robert Ruck from Bled Olympiad is missing in this database.>|
If you think the game should be included, why not submitting it? That has always been the policy of this database.

|Oct-10-13|| ||PhilFeeley: Happy Birthday GM Atalik! I hope you are still able to play despite the pettiness of the TCF.|
|Oct-10-13|| ||Cemoblanca: Doğum günün kutlu olsun Suat Bey. Happy B'Day. :)|
|Oct-10-13|| ||Kikoman: <Player of the Day>
Happy 49th Birthday GM Suat Atalik! :D
|Oct-10-13|| ||Penguincw: Happy Birthday to the POTD: Suat Atalik.|
|Jun-27-14|| ||diagonal: Suat Atalik's probably most famous win was the victory of the 100-Year Hastings Chess Congress Jubilee in 1995, this Summer Masters was played additional to the Winter (Christmas) Events, lasting since 1920/21 (with only a break during World War II).|
Atalik won this swiss system event as clear first ahead of Alexander Onischuk, Vladimir Malaniuk and others as shared second. Legendary David Bronstein and a bunch of brits (including ELO favourite Michael Adams) competed as well.
Until to-day, there were only four Summer Congresses (the first three as super-strong invitational tournament), these congresses are not included in the winter event numbers.
Technically, Suat Atalik is subsequently in the winner line with <Pillsbury>, <Capablanca> and <Alekhine> :
<Hastings Summer 1895 is considered one of the greatest tournaments in the history of chess. It was one of the first tournaments to include all the top players, including former World Champion Wilhelm Steinitz and current champion Emanuel Lasker, Mikhail Chigorin, Siegbert Tarrasch, Karl Schlechter, Joseph Henry Blackburne, David Janowski, and others. The result of the 22-game round-robin was a surprise, as American Harry Nelson Pillsbury won with 16.5 points despite playing in his first international tournament. Main article: Hastings 1895 chess tournament.
The Summer Hastings 1919 "Victory Tournament" was the first international tournament held in an allied country after World War I. The field was chiefly British, but the tournament was dominated by Cuban José Raúl Capablanca (soon to be World Champion) and Yugoslav ‘grandmaster’ Borislav Kostić. Capablanca won 10.5/11 without a loss, drawing only his game to Kostić who placed second with 9.5. George Alan Thomas and Frederick Yates tied for 3rd-4th with 7 points.
Hastings Summer 1922 was a strong double round-robin with Alexander Alekhine, Akiba Rubinstein, Efim Bogoljubov, Siegbert Tarrasch, George Alan Thomas, and Frederick Yates. Capablanca and Lasker had been invited but were unable to attend. The tournament featured a slower time control than had been usual in England — 17 moves per hour instead of 20 moves per hour. The outcome wasn't decided until the final round. Bogoljubov lost all his games against tournament leaders Alekhine and Rubinstein. Rubinstein needed a final round victory over Thomas to tie for first with Alekhine, but achieved only a draw to fall a half point short. Alekhine won with 7.5, Rubinstein was second with 7, and Bogoljubow and Thomas tied for third-fourth with 4.
Hastings Masters Summer 1995 was the 100-year jubilee tournament, Suat Atalik clear first.>
|Dec-02-15|| ||PhilFeeley: No news about what he's doing these days? Coaching? Will he play any tournaments soon?|
|Jun-10-17|| ||bla bla: trt
|Sep-10-18|| ||PhilFeeley: He's turned up in this summer festival tournament in Belgrade, winning:|
I'm glad to see he's doing well, despite the idiocy of his country's federation.
|Feb-14-19|| ||Penguincw: (this was in July 2018)
GM Atalik wins the Orbis GM tournament with a score of 6/9. He was one of just 2 undefeated players (the other one drew all his games).
|Feb-15-19|| ||HeMateMe: Very Turkish name.|
