Comments: by ProGunslingerDixie, United States :
-"Grigoriy is the most astounding chess Master I have ever played! He not only is a technical and strategic Master, for him chess is an art, this is truly a gift from God, to watch him play is art in action. It comes so natural to him as breathing does to a normal person. His rates are more than reasonable!
It is so fascinating to have him explain the thought process going into the moves.
His strategy is astounding in depth, and his creative checkmate positions are breathtakingly beautiful and just pure art.
He moves with such speed and grace that I could watch him play all day. To be on the receiving end of his skill is to be manipulated from the first moves, to be set up so you have no chance of attacking with success, unless you are skilled beyond comprehension.
I have played many thousands of games, and not until I played Grigoriy in competition did I realize just what skill a chess Master can possess!
Astounding is too poor a word choice to describe the sensation, but I can find no words to adequately describe the sensation!
Sincerely, Scotty Drye, Minister, Scientist, and Chess Lover."

Some Info About Me: Grigoriy (Greg) Burtayev – AWARDCHESS, Chess Coach. I was born in Engels, in River Volga, at USSR in 1957. I started learning chess at age 5-6 from watching my Father play with his friends. I spent a great deal of time researching chess while in the Russia, in the massive chess library I had collected and get an access to there. My favorite Chess Masters are: GM David Bronshtein, Paul Keres, Alexander Alechin, Michael Chigorin, Michael Tal, Anatoly Karpov, Bent Larsen, and Akiba Rubinshtein... I adore them, as the Chess Artists, Masters and Persons!
I have had the pleasure of playing GM Nikolay Krogius (twice), GM Iosif Dorfman, and GM Ratmir Xolmov. And I knew GM Eduard Gufeld, as I played at his own Chess Club at La Brea, West Hollywood, Los Angeles...
Chess is taken very seriously in Russia, and particularly during the time of my youth, with the excellent Russian Champions of the 1960's and 1970’s. Bobby Fischer’s brief period as World Championship in 1972 encouraged popularity of chess worldwide, and a renewed study of/and among the great Russian masters, through the breakup of the Soviet Union, and till this day.
Russia has produced more World Champions than any other single Country.
While in Russia I achieved two 1 /First/ Ratings at USSR Chess Federation in 1982 and 1984 in OTB (Over The Board Tournaments) and in Correspondent Mail, which is roughly equivalent to Expert/Candidate Chess Master at USCF, or FIDE. I came to the US in 1998. I shared 2-8 Places in Category 'B' in an American Open at Las Vegas.
I am preparing for an active return to OTB, that I left a few years ago... I am USCF Correspondent Candidate Chess Master, that I achived by playing by Mail...
It may be really hard for some Coaches to decide the 'right' strategy choice: 1) Play just a few games at the time, to maintain a very good looking 'rating', or 2) Finish consistently 1, 2, or even 3 dozen games every day, 4 years in a row, and finish nearly 19,000 games, without a single time out here, at Site...
At the same time, I shared my own chess experience in chess blogs, and at public and group chess forums, with many hundreds of my own chess (and funny/entertaining) posts. It was a huge amount of chess practice, (and a personal challenge) for me to withstand the heavy load of playing and focusing on chess 15-17 hours per day.
I always do my best, and give 100%. Others may go an easier route to get a high rating, but I follow my own path...
As you can see from the Chess Coach Directory, some 'Coaches' are here only for 'coaching', and really not as active players at our biggest global Chess website. Look at how many games they have played, and the dates!
What is better - to 'play', or to 'only Coach players' ? I commit fully to both playing tournaments and to Coaching!
