|Mar-15-05|| ||lopium: Does anybody know more about this player? He was strong, and play for only 4 years... |
|Apr-21-05|| ||soberknight: I know Igor Stohl, but I don't know what he Stohl. |

An odd comment to make, considering the database gives his dates of games as 1981-2005, i.e. about 25 years worth of games - a good career. Plus he has games recorded for this year so he's not finished.
He has, however, taken the time to write a major work of analysis of Kasparov's best games. Read about it here:
|Jan-25-06|| ||EmperorAtahualpa: This is a player with one of the highest percentages of "short draws" (draws reached in less than 20 moves). According to a calculation, an astonishing 41% of his games were reached by short draws!|
Kramnik only has 16%, so what are all the Kramnik-bashers thinking??

|Sep-27-06|| ||BIDMONFA: Igor Stohl|
|Sep-27-06|| ||plang: Excellent writer; Instructive Modern Chess Masterpieces is a great book.|
His two volume set on Kasparov is great as well.
|Apr-14-07|| ||bauernfresser: Has recently worked with David Navara.

|Dec-18-11|| ||GrahamClayton: Stohl also co-authored a book on the 1990 Manila Interzonal with Lubomir Ftacnik.|
|Sep-27-12|| ||LoveThatJoker: Happy Birthday, GM Stohl!
|Sep-27-13|| ||Kikoman: <Player of the Day>
Happy 49th birthday GM Igor Stohl. :D
|Sep-27-13|| ||waustad: He is still active in team tournaments, playing in Czech, Slovak and sometimes Austrian and German leagues. Since he publishes with Gambit Books, some of his work is available via the Gambit Books app on the iPad, notably the Kasparov Best books.|
Apart from the team tournaments, one he played in is the admirably named: http://www.365chess.com/tournaments...

That is a strange fact. Another player worth looking at would be the late
Istvan Bilek was also not inclined to overexertion later in his career.
|Sep-27-15|| ||MissScarlett: Credit to Igor....here he is making John Nunn look stylish: http://www.chesshistory.com/winter/...|
|Sep-27-15|| ||eternaloptimist: Happy birthday to GM Stohl! <MissScarlett> Lol indeed he did do that!|
|Sep-27-15|| ||MissScarlett: I wouldn't wish those trousers on my worst enemy.|
|Sep-27-15|| ||whiteshark: Game Collection: Instructive Modern Chess Masterpieces ~ Stohl|
<MS> What does that say about you? ;)
|Sep-28-15|| ||eternaloptimist: <MissScarlett> The sweatshirt looks tacky also. It's funny how much styles change over the years.|
|Sep-28-15|| ||columbeau: @barkingscarlett : send us a picture of your underwear. all chess players will surely appreciate your epic style|
|Sep-28-15|| ||siggemannen: Are those trousers or pyjamas?|
