Marx Gyoergy Chess Memorial (2004)
Player: Alexander Beliavsky
|Jun-25-04|| ||AdrianP: A good showing from Viktor... still got some teeth - although a lot of his wins were positional grinds. Beliavsky got off to a disastrous start with 0.5/3, but put in a great run of wins to finish 3rd. Still in the World Chess Championships as well - maybe a bit of a dark horse. I think that he was a Kasparov second at some point - be interesting to have a match between those two... although it might be a bit one-sided. |
|Jun-25-04|| ||iron maiden: Forza Korchnoi! The man's immortal. |
|Jun-26-04|| ||Bobsterman3000: Viktor may play until he's 100! By then he may drop down to a mere 2400 or so... |
|Jun-26-04|| ||JSYantiss: lol....even at a "mere" 2400, Korchnoi would kill me. |
|Jun-27-04|| ||Sylvester: Didn't Kasparov beat Beliavsky in a Candidates' match? Or was that a different guy? |
|Jun-27-04|| ||iron maiden: <Sylvester> Yes, back in 1982. See http://www.mark-weeks.com/chess/828.... |
|Jun-28-04|| ||Sylvester: Thanks <iron maiden>. I thought so. |
|Jul-12-04|| ||Rowson: I love Korchnoi! Good to see that he is STILL capable of winning some serious competitions. |
|Jul-28-04|| ||ArturoRivera: How old is Kornchnoi actually? |
|Jul-28-04|| ||Benzol: Born 23rd July 1931 |
|Aug-03-04|| ||ArturoRivera: 73 years old! and the man is still playing high level chess! |
|Aug-06-04|| ||waddayaplay: I think the problem is that there are no good chess books focused on old people. All training, study, books, &c , are focused on kids. Older people can learn too of course, but noone has taken the time to investigate into it. |
Probably other measurements needs to be taken. To learn positions and patterns is not essential, because they know it already. Instead, more focus on staying fit and alert; mental excercises; tai chi every morning. Stuff like that.
|Aug-06-04|| ||Zenchess: I heard that that's the sort of thing Korchnoi does all the time. |
|Aug-06-04|| ||PinkPanther: <Benzol>
Hmmm...I could swear Korchnoi was born on March 23rd.
