    Just don't bring Little Egypt into it. Eugene Torre and Karpov would be doomed.

    Zionism is racism as defined by the UN, Israel by every dirty means available steals land and water, kill Palestinian freedom fighters and civilians, and operates an apartheid system to drive more Palestinians off their land

    Acknowledging the fact that I might sound irrelevant posting about Naum Levin in a Naum Levin thread I dare to add that
    1) as a coach N.L. was extremely selective with the students he chose to include in his classes.
    2) Kirstin, a very low rated club player, improved out of sight under the coaching of N.L.

    For a person such as Naum with such calibre of playing and coaching your part 1 is understanding. I have been referred students from high level players/coaches to teach all basics first as they don't want to know about it.

    One of the games of Naum Levin in which he got beaten by the internationally acclaimed GM and author Edward Gufeld.
    The late E. Gufeld visited Australia in the mid '80s and impressed us all with his inimitable lecturing style and great humour. In this game, the popular "Mona Lisa" story teller, played like a computer - my Fritz15 computer anyway!


    Event Ch Ukraine 1960
    Site Kiev (Ukraine)
    Round 8

    White Gufeld, Eduard
    Black Levin, Naum L.
    White Elo 2480
    Black Elo 2420
    Result 1-0
