[what is this?]

Evgeny Ilgizovich Bareev was World Under-16 Champion in 1982 and since then has been a regular representative of Russia at the highest levels of world chess. He tied for first place in the Soviet Championship of 1990. Subsequent tournament successes include back-to-back victories at Hastings (1990-1991), fourth place at Linares 1994, joint second at Sarajevo 1999, clear first at Wijk aan Zee 2002 and third the following year. He reached the quarterfinals in the FIDE World Championships in 1999 and 2001, and was a semifinalist in the Candidates for the classical world championship at Dortmund 2002. He has previously been ranked as high as fourth (January 2003 and July 1991). Bareev is also a FIDE Senior Trainer.

Bareev now lives in Toronto, Canada. In September 2015 he officially changed federations from Russia to Canada, thereby becoming Canada's #1 player and scoring +4-3=3 at the Chess Olympiad (2016).

Nov-21-15  Caissanist: Anybody know why Bareev moved to Toronto? I've never heard of that city being a particular hotbed of chess activity.
Nov-21-15  PhilFeeley: Perhaps he knows people there and went to coach. Toronto may not be a hotbed but it does have some good players.

  eternaloptimist: Happy birthday to GM Bareev! Next year we can say nifty nifty Bareev is 50! 😃 <Phil> That is interesting that he moved to Toronto. Your guess as to why he moved there might be correct
Jan-02-16  PhilFeeley: I wonder if he will play for Canada's Olympiad team. That would be great. He can replace Mark Bluvshtein.
Jan-21-16  dumbgai: Was surprised to learn that Bareev now plays for Canada. If he plays, the team will have a very strong experienced GM. If not, he can still be an excellent coach for team.
May-25-16  posoo: DIS MAN is a smiling GLOMUVULIN and shood be treated as such!
Nov-21-16  Ironmanth: Many happy returns of the day, Grandmaster. Welcome to the special club of chess players over the age of 50! Have appreciated your contributions, energy, and results over the years. Be well, Evgeny.
Nov-21-16  TheFocus: Happy birthday, Evgeny bareev.

  LucB: Happy Birthday to Canada's strongest player! Fifty years young!
Aug-10-18  PhilFeeley: Bareev did play for Canada at the 2016 Olympiad, and we had our best result ever: played board 1 (!) in the last round against the powerhouse U.S. team. Even losing, we ended up in 11th place, ahead of Azerbaijan and China (!) Well done!

This year Bareev doesn't play for the team (anyone know why?), but Aman Hambleton and Eric Hansen take up the challenge. Good luck gentlemen!

Aug-10-18  Howard: Didn't know that Bareev plays for Canada now !
Sep-18-18  PhilFeeley: I still can't find out why Bareev is not on the Olympiad team this year. Did he go back to Russia?
Sep-18-18  Howard: It's my understanding that one of the Canadian players just dropped out several days ago due to family reasons.

Guess who his replacement will be ?!!

Sep-18-18  Howard: It's my understanding that one of the Canadian players Leseige just dropped out several days ago due to family reasons.

Guess who his replacement will be ?!!
