  technical draw: Wow! Whos is this? For me a strong unknown female GM....Bio and Picture please!!
Sep-23-07  refutor: <technical draw> note that maxim rodshtein played in the Boys U18 championship so i don't think it's a female GM
Premium Chessgames Member
  technical draw: <refutor> Right you are. Gender mistake. Here's a bio:
Feb-19-08  TheBB: I played this guy in a simul once. He definitely possesses the property of nonfemaleness.

In other news, he's (one of) the scourge(s) of Aeroflot these days:

Jul-24-08  ravel5184: Anyone who wants to see more games of <TheBB> come to my forum and watch the show! ravel5184 chessforum
Nov-25-08  notyetagm: Rodshtein just won team Silver (Israel) and individual Silver (Board 5) medals at the Dresden Olympiad.
Feb-23-09  timhortons: <In other news, he's (one of) the scourge(s) of Aeroflot these days:>

he say early bye in aeroflot 2009, play real bad.

Nov-18-09  walker: This guy is so young, has achieved 2650 rating and is not widely known. When will be his next tournament?
Nov-18-09  walker: I see now...<He is currently an Israeli Air Force soldier>

  Tabanus: 8th place and 2728 perf. in European Championship 2010:

Jul-21-10  zluria: Good Luck at Biel, Maxim!
Maxim kicked off with a fine win against Negi, in which he made Nagi "look like a child": M Rodshtein vs Negi, 2010 .

Black offers the exchange with 8. ... b5, but Rodstein's sharp eye discerns that he can win rather easily by declining the offer and instead attacking the weakened Queenside.

Jul-21-10  polarmis: Not the most elaborate comment ever made, but Gelfand has this to say about Rodshtein in a recent interview:

<Is there any promising chess star in Israel? Who would you point to as a potential 2700 player in the coming years?

I think Maxim Rodshtein is the most promising. He assisted me in Khanty-Mansiysk, and I got to know him better there. He’s got all the requirements to get to 2700 in the next few years. Again I really hope that it works out for him. And I’ll try to help.>

Jul-21-10  nanobrain: But Negi seems to be off-form. Let's see how he fares with So today.

  Tabanus: 7th in Biel:

2nd in Politiken Cup (Denmark) 31 July - 8 August 2010:

Premium Chessgames Member
  Tabanus: Winner with 2744 perf. of Open de Sants (Spain) 20-29 August 2010:

Aug-28-11  solskytz: Had the honor of beating him once in Active chess, when he was an 2100 rated child prodigy (I was some 300 points lower). We got a totally equal and totally dynamic position with many pieces and possibilities, where we both had 3 minutes on the clock... and probably experience and maturity played a role.
Jan-04-16  detritus: Rodshtein just hit 2700.0 in the live ratings with a win over Alexander Donchenko in Round 8 of the Rilton Cup in Sweden. He's sitting on 7/8, a half-point ahead of Jon Ludvig Hammer, who crested 2700 a few rounds earlier in the same tournament.
Jan-05-16  zluria: Congratulations Maxim! 2700, Woohoo!
Jan-05-16  waustad: With both top players winning, he wound up at 8/9 to win this year's Rilton Cup.
Jan-05-16  sonia91: Congratulations on winning the 2015/16 Rilton Cup! After this victory his live rating is 2702.8.
Jan-19-16  TheFocus: Happy birthday, Maxim Rodshtein.
Nov-02-18  sonia91: Rodshtein is the new Israel's number 1 player in the November '18 list, ahead of Boris Gelfand, for the first time I think.
