  OlimpBase: A real chess hamdinger. He was naturally outstandingly gifted and might have reached a lot, but he scoffingly pooh-poohed chess and quit very soon. He is successful businessman those days.
Dec-24-06  BIDMONFA: Adam Kuligowski


Sep-20-23  Caissanist: <Olimpbase> Well, he quit when he was in his early 30s, which is a common and probably wise age to do so. You're not going to climb the world rankings much (or probably any) further then, and this is basically your last chance to settle into a stable living doing something else. If you're not a world championship contender and don't want to die poor, this is probably the time to look for a more renumerative line of work.

Btw, your website rocks, very much appreciate the work you have done on it.
