|Feb-23-14|| ||Zhbugnoimt: Vitaly Zaltsman was not born in Ukraine|
|Oct-26-15|| ||greed and death: <Zhbugnoimt> You are technically correct, but people born in the Reichskommissariat Ukraine are not usually considered German-born.|
Anyways, Zaltsman appears to have been a reasonably strong master at his peak in the late 1970's and early 1980's, defeating both Anthony Miles and Pal Benko during that time.
|Oct-26-15|| ||perfidious: Zaltsman was quite competent; it was no mean feat to play in multiple US championships.|
|Nov-19-15|| ||Zhbugnoimt: Vitality Zaltsman was nothing near German-born, he was born in Magnogorsk, Russia and grew up in Dnepropetrovsk, Ukraine.|
