Aug-08-05  jperr75108: nice job netherlands, what has happened to russia?
Aug-08-05  jamesmaskell: 711 games....ready kibitzers...on your marks, get set, GO!!!!!
Premium Chessgames Member
  WannaBe: <jamesmaskell: 711 games ... GO!!!!!> LOL, I'll just post 'First' on everyone of them!!
Aug-08-05  SneechLatke: <WannaBe> Nice! Let's start now and see who can get the most "firsts" hmm?
Aug-08-05  iron maiden: The Ukranian and Israeli teams actually scored more points than the Dutch, who won most of their matches by narrow margins.
Aug-08-05  TruthHurts: Yeah but Ukranians faced far wicker opposition. Actually Holland, France and Azerbaidjian where the teams who face the better teams refferring to the number of points.
Aug-08-05  TruthHurts: As an example
Ukraine opponents total:162
Holland " " :191.5
France " " :184
Aug-08-05  niemzo: great performance by the greek team.4th place .In a few days i will play in an open tourn in which several of them(Kotronias,Mastrovasilis) will take part .I dont think i have much chance to play these GM's but it will be nice see them play.

  WannaBe: <jamesmaskell> Don't forget there are the 15th European Team Championship (Women) (2005) events too!!

"First, First, First, First..." LOL.

Aug-08-05  jamesmaskell: Of course...Get ready...set....oh wait a sec, youve already gone!

England beat Russia in the mens section and England beat Germany in the womens section. I think England did well. The mens England team was certainly not at its strongest in Sweden.

Aug-08-05  percyblakeney: Netherlands won only 9 games in the whole tournament (Ukraine and Israel won 13), but on the other hand this was their only loss: Van Wely vs Kotronias, 2005

They played like Petrosian in his matches. Winning a match by the minimal one point (2 1/2 to 1 1/2) is still winning the match. Sure it's nice to win matches 4-0 but it's more important not to lose.

Aug-08-05  TruthHurts: <jamesmaskell>, England did not beat Russia in men section, only Netherland, France and Hungary did.
Aug-08-05  TruthHurts: And they did not beat germany in wooman section , maybe you looked at an other team.
Aug-08-05  Shams: I am especially happy for Timman-- this might be the final feather in his cap. He may not be board one but I bet he revels in this win more anyone. As well he should.
Aug-09-05  cade: <England did not beat Russia in men section, only Netherland, France and Hungary did.>

You are WRONG.

13. England
14. Russia

<And they did not beat germany in wooman section , maybe you looked at an other team.>


13. England
14. Germany

Aug-09-05  TruthHurts: <cade> I was talking about beating them in one game so I am not wrong .
Aug-09-05  TruthHurts: And calm yourself, if you want you can delete your non sense shouting post ("WRONG WRONG", it looks like a child screaming his anger), I will delete this one...

Beating Russia or Germany in a single game, no, finishing ahead of them in the final standings yes .

Aug-09-05  jamesmaskell: cade...its OK. No need to be so abrupt. I wasnt clear about it. I meant the overall table, not individual bad :)
Aug-09-05  cade: I enjoy being abrupt, especially when someone slanders the English team. England would have been one of the favourites to win if our 2 best players (Adams and Short) had bothered to show up.
Aug-09-05  TruthHurts: <CADE> grow up kid. And stop being paranoid, nobody slandered the english team, you're over reacting like a hooligan drunk supporter. You're desapointed that Short and Adams were not here, ok good, but stop being childish. And by the way what about Hungary without Polgar and Leko, or Bulgaria without Topalov, or Russia without Kramnik Morozevich and Grischuk as an example, or even Spain without Shirov and Vallejo. As an example France didn't have the money to pay their best players for the olympiad , England did have for the olympiad and didn't had here, that's life. And this is not at all a reason to react non sense this way like a soccer fanatic blinded supporter, because this has nothing to do with what I've said, keep your frustrations and have a walk. Calm down kid...
Aug-09-05  TruthHurts: And a little statistic for the information:
Here, would have been the start list sorted by average ranking of players, of the european championship, if the 5 better players of each country would have played.

10. ......

So one of the favourites to win, hmm, I would say that at least 8 would have been more :).

Aug-09-05  cade: No need to be racist "kid". I'm not even English so keep your racism to yourself.
Aug-09-05  TruthHurts: "Racism", what are you taking about, there's no relation to the subject, it's irrelevant. Anyway you calmed down kid, great, so that's what counts.
Aug-09-05  kolobok: relax guys you beat team Russia-3 not 1, without kasparov, kramnik, morozevich,this is the reason Russia still #1
