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!

    "To whom am I talking to, Awardchess or Grigoriy? or are you the same person? either way I did not mean to be disrespectful, I was just trying to understand if your rating is not at a master level how will I know the tactics or your training level is equal to a master.

    If I were to take lessons from you, I would like  to know if your training methods are equal to a master or better.

    I do understand that rating should not matter, but it gives me an idea or sense of security that if I took lessons from you I get the best tactical and teaching results you can provide.  

    Thank you very much for taking the time to even talk to me. I greatly appreciate your input."


     

    There are No Masters or GMs, or WGMs at  own Rating System, at all!

     

    At some other Chess Websites they have own Titles System on Place, and I had the Title, too, but it is irrelevant at all other Chess Websites, of course...

     

    Otherwise, I would be one of them here, as I am " All Time Tournament Point Leader" , and I Won Tournament Point Leaderboard Competition at  at 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011...

     

     

     

     

    Title Holders bring their Titles on to here, but anyway their Titles, legitimate or not, or 30 years ago back, are just a good outsourced estimates here.

     

    I am Correspondent  Candidate Chess Master  at USCF / by mail/,  as well as I got Two 1 Degrees / Category 'A' or an 'Expert'/ , back to Soviet Union to 1982 and 1984,  at OTB Chess / Over the Board/ and at Correspondent /mail/chess games... 

     

    I am Chess Coach even more longer, since about 1974...

     

    So, I have enough Experience for both an Active play and for Chess Coaching.

     

    And it is just your choice to goes on Titles, or to goes on my Chess Coaching Services, as I cannot help you to compare and decide the players, who plays just here at  and won more than anybody else here at , with other Great Players and Generals, who Won at Waterloo Battle, little back to History...

     

    I only may responsible for my Stats here, that I have done here! And it took big part of my life on it fight!

     

    I teach the necessary Chess and Life Skills to think,  fight and win, draw and loose, in hard fight... I teach many-many Chess Patterns, that you have to know, before you get it at own games, at hard ways, when you are at Time pressure to submit the move, and you cannot decide, what you gonna do right now and right here...

     

    You can always find and  read some good chess books, on chess, checkers and bridge, as you likes.

     

    The Role of Chess Coach is to talks to you, at some points of your Training, to save you a Years for cut -off of your wrong roadways, that lead to nonwhere in Chess Mastery... ...

     

    I can only Assume that I may get the Nice Pollite Intelligent Bright Chess Student, who can listen, talks, asks, and think ahead...

    --------------

    Are you just asked me Why you need to be my Chess Student, or otherwise?

    Is anyone Plays and Won More Chess Games  and Tourneys at www.chess.com for last 4 years at Row, than me, AWARDCHESS?  I do not know about him here, yet...

    You are looking for  so called 'ratings', but I rather prefer to looks on Performance and Art! Change your mindset, if you can.

    Some of hightest rating players at Site are looks as 'robots', without naming them here, of course... And every week the Staff just deleted an obvious ones, by some clear reasons from Site...

    I am not sure, that maybe someone just wanna buy their 'coaching services', accordingly some logic, for respect of hight rating players here... It is only ups for you to see the difference, and take ups the right decisions!.. 

    Move on into the right directions, and do not let you be mind-blinded by some too good to be true 'Hightest Rated" players, as it means, that some of them hold the Ratings, above even Gary Kasparov, here...

    I just trying to answer straight on you bold question.

    May God Bless Smart Persons and Players!
