|Jul-15-06|| ||Open Defence: who was Petr Ismailov ?|
|Jul-16-06|| ||DCP23: Mig Greengard:
<This is the 10th Izmailov Memorial and the Tomsk chess club bears his name. (Petr, Peter, Pyotr...) I believe he was the first Russian Federation champion in 1928 and was executed in the mid-30's along with, well, just about everyone. He beat Botvinnik in a few games (bad career move) but was never allowed to play in the USSR finals. There was a short article on him in a German chess magazine in 1998. Anyone with more on him?>
Valchess (on Mig's blog):
<Yes, Petr Izmailov was the first Russian Federation champion in 1928 (22 y.o. at the time). He graduated from Tomsk University and then worked as geologist in Siberian taiga. He was executed in 1937 (by the way, for some reason Soviet chessplayers were more or less lucky - not many of them were killed or directly repressed at those unlawful times).
There are two huge articles by Boris Voronkov at ChessPro site (in Russian) that include some information about him:
- http://www.chesspro.ru/book/rc29.sh... - about the 6th USSR championatship (1929). It is not clear (even his own son does not know it) why Izmailov did not take participation in the final stage of that championship (he was one of just 4 winners of semi-finals having defeated Botvinnik) - see the tables at the end of the article).
- http://www.chesspro.ru/book/rc31.sh... - about 7th USSR championship (1931). Izmailov - Botvinnik game from semi-final (annotated by Yury Averbach) can be found there. It was his last tournament.>
|Jul-16-06|| ||DCP23: Pairings for today:
Ponomariov - Karjakin
Bologan - Morozevich
Rublevsky - Kazimjanov
|Jul-16-06|| ||DCP23: My Fritz had a hard time trying to figure out all the Morozevich knight-hopping but now it says -2.44 !!|
|Jul-16-06|| ||DCP23: Oh no :((( Moro blew it... Should have played 44. Nd4 for -3.44 but instead went for 44. Ra6 with -0.59. So Bologan might escape with a draw yet.|
|Jul-16-06|| ||DCP23: Ah, they're down to seconds now. That explains it.|
|Jul-16-06|| ||DCP23: By the way, Ponomariov-Karjakin is 0-1 and Rublevsky-Kazimjanov is 1-0.|
|Jul-16-06|| ||DCP23: OH NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!! Moro blunders with 75. Rd8 and loses :((( He had 2 seconds left on his clock.|
Bologan gets the full point...
|Jul-16-06|| ||DCP23: I'm devastated...|
|Jul-16-06|| ||DCP23: Would you believe this enigmatic tournament suddenly starts another round?! The pairings now are:|
..and the games are already underway.
|Jul-16-06|| ||DCP23: Ha-ha, Karjakin-Rublevsky already drawn. Understandable, who wants to play two games in a row without a break?|
|Jul-16-06|| ||DCP23: In fact, Karjakin and Rublevsky managed to exchange all of the pieces except for 1 bishop each (opposite-colored) in just 24 moves.|
|Jul-16-06|| ||DCP23: Is anybody else interested in this tourney or am I going to set a new CG.com record for a longest uninterrupted streak of kibitzes from one user?!|
|Jul-16-06|| ||k0mi: sorry im here too and interrupt your record-breaking streak of messages :)|
|Jul-16-06|| ||DCP23: Morozevich-Ponomariov drawn on move 47 and with a 2nd set of s on the board.|
|Jul-17-06|| ||messachess: I thought I saw a message earlier to the effect that all the games would be provided on this site eventually. Anyone confirm that?|
|Jul-17-06|| ||gmgomes: I do not understand Russian, but I think Karjakin has won the tournment.|
|Jul-17-06|| ||s4life: wow +3 in such a strong tournament... way to go boy!|
|Jul-18-06|| ||percyblakeney: Final result:
1. Karjakin 7.0
2. Rublevsky 5.5
3. Kasimdzhanov 5.0
4. Morozevich 4.5
5. Ponomariov 4.0
6. Bologan 4.0
|Jul-18-06|| ||percyblakeney: <wow +3 in such a strong tournament>|
It's even +4 by Karjakin, not bad at all.
|Jul-18-06|| ||Petrosian63: How many ELO points did each player gain or loss?
Congratulations to Karjakin.
|Jul-18-06|| ||suenteus po 147: <Petrosian63> I'm guessing that since this was a rapid event there will be no ELO points awarded to the contestants.|
|Jul-18-06|| ||Ezzy: Ponomariov is having a miserable time in his last couple of tournaments.|
|Jul-18-06|| ||s4life: Wasn't Kasim supposed to be the badass in rapid format?|
|Jul-19-06|| ||A.Alekhine: Obviously not .His results has not been consistent since he last won the FIDE world championship 2004|
