Default My Wikipedia biography of Max Dlugy

Maxim Dlugy
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
Maxim Dlugy is a Grandmaster of chess. He was born on January 29, 1966
in Moscow, USSR. He arrived with his family in the United States in
about 1979. He was a late developer and was only an average player for
his age until he shot up in strength in the early 1980s. He was
awarded the International Master title in 1982. He won the World
Junior Chess Championship in 1985. He was awarded the Grandmaster
title in 1986 at the World Chess Olympiad in Dubai, United Arab
Emirates, where he played on the U.S. team that was in first place
going into the last round.

He emigrated to America when a young boy and first came to notice in
1984 when he finished 3rd in the U.S. Chess Championship. He was 2nd=
in New York 1985, 2nd= in Clichy 1986-87 and 3rd= in the 1987 U.S.
Chess Championship.

He turned to chess politics and ran for and was elected President of
the United States Chess Federation in 1990.

Bankers Trust placed an ad in the New York Times for young chess
masters who, studies had shown, made good securities traders. Dlugy
answered the ad and was hired and got a job working on Wall Street.

In April 2005 Dlugy was arrested at Sheremetyevo airport in Moscow on
fraud charges involving ten million dollars. He is still in jail and
has been denied bond. He is expected to plead not guilty.
