Oldhands Team Strengthened by GM Boris Gulko

We have recently reported on the line-up of the upcoming Oldhands-Snowdrops match. However, GM Dragoljub Velimirovic won't be able to attend it due to an illness, so he was replaced by formidable GM Boris Gulko.

GM Boris Gulko (2535)


Boris Gulko was born on February 9, 1947 in East Germany, where his father served in the Red Army. After several years the family returned to the Soviet Union. Gulko became an international grandmaster in 1976, and a year later he won the USSR championship. A few months later he asked for the opportunity to emigrate, but his request was denied. Gulko protested against it, repeatedly tried hunger strikes, and was even imprisoned. He was allowed to emigrate after the accession of Mikhail Gorbachev and the Perestroika in 1986. In the nineties, he won the U.S. championship twice.

Against Garry Kasparov he had played between 1978 and 2001 eight standard time control games, including three wins, four draws, and only once Gulko was defeated. He managed to beat the legendary Garry Kasparov in 1982 with the Black pieces in just 24 moves!
