Kibitzer's Corner
Oct-16-05  lopium: Seems a very young player! Nice.
Oct-16-05  Open Defence: <> can we have a bio please?
Oct-16-05  lopium: For sure he is Quebecer, I guess. As I am, and that's a French name.... So from Qc, Canada, or France but here I doubt.
Aug-10-06  EmperorAtahualpa: His family name could be of Dutch origin too.
Jul-14-08  Squarepusher: He's brazilian
Premium Chessgames Member
  whiteshark: Well, a pure bijou.
Dec-17-08  IvanchukPupil: Still doesn't change anything?His is a IM put in the biography.He's brazilian champion search in the CBX to see.
Dec-17-08  ottohill: Congratulations, Andre! Excelent performance, you won the Brazilian championship ahead of experienced GM's, like Vescovi, Milos, Leitão, Fier and Lima. Wish you a good future in chess!
Dec-30-08  Karpova: Chessbase report:
Dec-30-08  vonKrolock: <Caucasian/Oriental (Fier, who bears a surname which is a corrupted version of German Vier)> - What's "caucasian/oriental"?! According to Fier's father Luciano, is an Italian surname, with same root of english "fierce" - or it changed since?!

<According to Rabbi Najmanovich, until then the only player who used Yarmulke during a chess event was Akiba Rubinstein.> This can be canfirmed?! - <"the only">!?

Dec-30-08  Anyi: It is very conceivable, but there's so far no picture confirming that Rubinstein wore a Yarmulke during a chess event. In his later years (after the death of his wife 1954) Rubinstein would always wear a certain kind of a cap, and never take it off.
Dec-30-08  Karpova: <According to Rabbi Najmanovich, until then the only player who used Yarmulke during a chess event was Akiba Rubinstein.>

GM Leonid Yudasin, 2004 Santa Monica Invitational

Dec-30-08  vonKrolock: <Karpova> So (at least) also Yudasin - Well, it was really a very strong event - and nice that the national Championship is again played in this Round Robin format... The images show that the playing hall is quite spacious, comfortable and well illuminated - and hardly could someone say it was an <unorthodox> venue (lol) - we heard to concerti of profane music in catholic churches, for instance... Great victory for young Andr� Diamant! - In 1980 the Brazilian Junior Championship was held in an Art Museum, the 'Museu Guido Viaro' in Curitiba - I was there as arbiter - Then Milos was first followed by Lima - both are today GMs and played at Porto Alegre - Diamant and some of the other participants were not yet born...

  MissScarlett: For the SPICE program to lose one GM may be regarded as unfortunate; to lose two looks like carelessness.
Feb-09-16  TheFocus: Happy birthday, GM Andre Diamant.
