I am so sorry to hear of te death of Genrikh Chepukaitis. While there with the children from Annapolis Maryland in May, I found Genrikh Chepukaitis to be very kind, and a happy man.I will be forever grateful that I had the opportunity to meet Genrikh Chepukaitis, and very happy that my son was able to learn even a little for him.

Im very sorry about the dead of this great master, i had the opportunity to play against him in this April 2004, and i did a draw, i was very surprised, becuase he had 2450 rating "smartchip" was his nick name, on icc 5 Minute games. So i went to see who was this master, and i was very pleased when i read about his style, his way of thinking about chess, and his great victories. I didn't know him before.
The World will be much better, when people can let his feeling's out, and play life like he did in chess, just enyoing and be just the way you are.
I will miss him a lot...

Навсегда мне запомнился Чепукайтис, и книжка его стоит на полке. Стоит прочитать хотя бы одну страницу из нее - сразу
представляю Чепукайтиса, с особым пафосом декламирующего.... Очень жаль.

Condolences to the friends and family of G.Chepukaitis - his clock has been stopped for the last time. Perhaps somewhere on a cloud he is driving Capa and Alekhine crazy playing fast, unsound, but winning, chess.
We will miss you Chepuikaites.. you had great ideas... and played the wildest positions I have seen... winning games that looked so lost.. and out of the blue the smoke settles and you were on top.. I am sure even now when the dust settles you will still be on top.. :)

I agree with Sune Berg Hansen, he played a lot of interesting games on ICC. My condoleances for everyone who misses him.

I never met Chepuikaitis in person and I never spoke to him (he didn't speak english and I don't speak russian). Nevertheless I still feel I know him very well after playing more than 200 blitzgames with him (Smartchip) at ICC. I feel sad about his premature and sudden death. He had an interesting and original chessstyle and was one of the true blitzchess-gladiators. I will miss him.
