Sergio Mariotti Bio/Wiki, Net Worth, Married 2018Sergio Mariotti (born August 10, 1946 in Florence) is an Italian Grandmaster of chess and former national champion.He became the Italian junior champion in 1965 at Turin and in 1969 at San Benedetto, the full Italian Champion. One of his greatest tournament successes followed in 1971, when he finished second at Venice (after Browne but ahead of Hort, Kavalek and Gligori?).Mariotti represented his country at the Olympiads of 1972, 1974, 1986 and 1988. At the Nice Olympiad of 1974, he scored a double success. A board one score of 73.7% (+12 =4 ?3) earned him the individual bronze medal (behind Karpov and Delgado, equal with Torre) also securing his final grandmaster norm. As no Italian before him had achieved the International Grandmaster title, he gained overnight celebrity status when the honour was bestowed on him the same year. Around this time, British Chess Magazine nicknamed him "The Italian Fury", due mainly to his formidable collection of tournament wins but also for his enterprising, tactical style of play.He was victorious in many tournaments including Naples 1968, La Spezia 1969, Naples 1969, Reggio Emilia 1970, San Benedetto 1970, Bari 1971, Caorle Zonal 1975 and Rovigo 1976.His choice of chess opening often revolved around the Sicilian Defence or Ruy Lopez, where he was comfortable with either colour. Occasionally, his fans were treated to old-fashioned romantic openings such as the Evans Gambit and Albin Counter Gambit and these brought him surprising success.His chess career continued on a positive note for a few years to follow and he finished joint 10th (with Spassky, Uhlmann and Gheorghiu) at the prestigious Manila Interzonal of 1976, though this result was insufficient to advance to the Candidates Matches. At the Praia da Rocha zonal tournament of 1978, he finished fourth, one place away from Interzonal qualification. He was a winner at Lugano in 1979.Mariotti became an advisor for an Italian publisher and worked for the Italian Chess Federation (FSI), where he was President between 1994 and 1996. As a precursor to the Turin Olympiad of 2006, he played a website game against the 'Rest of the World' and won in 48 moves.
