|Sep-10-06|| ||BIDMONFA: 59th Russian Championship (2006)|
Round 8, leader Ernesto Inarkiev 6 points
|Sep-10-06|| ||positionalgenius: This is the qualifier for the superfinal,right?|
|Sep-10-06|| ||percyblakeney: <positionalgenius> Yes, the first seven in this tournament plus the five highest rated players will be qualified.|
|Sep-10-06|| ||Knight13: <...the five highest rated players will be qualified.> Even if the top highest rated players comes in the last 5 places (this won't happen, I know, just wondering?|
|Sep-11-06|| ||percyblakeney: <Even if the top highest rated players comes in the last 5 places (this won't happen, I know, just wondering?>|
Since the five highest rated Russian players will play the final, they didn't participate here (Kramnik, Svidler, Morozevich, Grischuk and whoever the fifth of them now is supposed to be...). So it's those five plus the top seven in this tournament.
|Sep-11-06|| ||ahmed abdelmonem: As i said before WINNIG IS WINNG
knight13 explain my point of view
It does not mean a player with 2500 rate can not beat a player with 2600 or more many times it only depends on the psycological canges to the player during the match
so we can not guess which of this players will win
|Sep-11-06|| ||percyblakeney: The last round has started with some friendly draws, Alexander Galkin played his longest game of the last three rounds (7 moves...). The top boards were drawn quickly and Inarkiev wins the tournament.|
|Sep-11-06|| ||ahmed abdelmonem: Inarkiev wins the tournament but he is not the best rated player
He is only play with good clear mind|
|Sep-11-06|| ||percyblakeney: Ian Nepomniachtchi (2520) is crushing Kobalia (2647) in a miniature and will have chances to reach the superfinal finishing 0.5 behind Inarkiev.|
|Sep-11-06|| ||ahmed abdelmonem: I want to ask all here if someone play in tournament with you and ask you to give him a half point to make his situiation better and you know that you have not the chance to make progress in this tournament Will you give him that half point?|
|Sep-11-06|| ||suenteus po 147: It looks like the seven players who will move on are this tournament's winner, Ernesto Inarkiev, and the six runners up with 6/8: Denis Khismatullin, Evgeny Tomashevsky, Nikita Vitiugov, Evgeny Najer, Ian Nepomniachtchi, and Sergey Grigoriants. Quite an upset in that several notable players and past SuperFinal participants will not be moving on.|
|Sep-11-06|| ||percyblakeney: It seems as if Evgeny Alekseev also finished shared second even if some sources give him as 0.5 point further behind. This game may be the reason, since it has been reported as draw but probably was a win for white, if so one unlucky player sharing second will be left out: E Alekseev vs D Chuprov, 2006|
|Sep-11-06|| ||percyblakeney: Zvjaginsev was apparently unhappy with having lost quickly with his Na3 Sicilian and tried something new today. After 1. e4 c6 2. d4 d5 3. f3 dxe4 he played 4. Be2 and won in 21 moves. Position after 4. Be2:|

|Sep-11-06|| ||percyblakeney: ...and Chesspro.ru claims that Evgeny Najer is the player that will finish 8th.|
|Sep-11-06|| ||L13: Wow! Three of those who qualified for the final tournament are still juniors, and another two are in their early 20's. Add Grischuk, and the Russian superfinal looks radically rejuvenated in comparison to previous years.|
|Sep-11-06|| ||BIDMONFA: 59th Russian Championship (2006)
Champion - ERNESTO INARKIEV
|Sep-11-06|| ||percyblakeney: Nepomniachtchi performed 200 points over his 2520 rating and was the big sensation. Kosteniuk's 2379 result will lose her many ELO points, and also Zvjaginsev, Motylev, Galkin and Riazantsev performed more than 100 points below their rating. The seven highest rated players all missed out on the seven spots for the Superfinal.|
|Sep-12-06|| ||Hafen Slawkenbergius: Why isn't Jakovenko playing?|
|Sep-12-06|| ||EmperorAtahualpa: <chessgames.com> On the main page you write "Ernesto Inarkiev is the 2006 Russian Champion with 6.5/9."|
But I think this is incorrect. Isn't this only the qualifier for the superfinal? Only the winner of the superfinal can claim he is Russian champion, I think.
|Sep-12-06|| ||jamesmaskell: <EA> I think he can call himself the Russian Champion. The next stage is the Super Final, which you could argue is a different competition.|
Calling this tournament simply a qualifier kind of dumbs down its importance. I do take your point though.
|Sep-12-06|| ||EmperorAtahualpa: <jamesmaskell> Come on now. How can you call yourself Russian champion if the top 5 Russian players did not even participate in the tournament? (they only participate in the superfinal)|
|Sep-12-06|| ||acirce: Last year's co-winner Khalifman (but Bareev was first on tie-break and declared the winner) in New In Chess 2005/7:|
<Incidentally, a slight digression on the topic of terminology: in various prestigious sources this tournament was called a 'semi-final' or in general a 'qualifier'. As a matter of fact this was probably so, but it is nevertheless rather offensive. 20 players with a rating of over 2600, with just 7 qualifying places for the super-final - this is rather a lot for a semi-final of the championship of the 14th (cf. the results of 15th European Team Championship (2005)) country in Europe, wouldn't you agree?>
|Sep-13-06|| ||VishyFan: <EmperorAtahualpa: <jamesmaskell> Come on now. How can you call yourself Russian champion if the top 5 Russian players did not even participate in the tournament? (they only participate in the superfinal)> Probably we can call the one who wins the superfinal as the Russian Super champion... LOL :)|
|Sep-15-06|| ||Mameluk: This tournament was a real revolution. Somehow it reminds me a 1917 year.|
|Sep-15-06|| ||Mameluk: Funny whining on Mig´s blog, that young Russian players have no sponsors, no money, and no chance to get better. And that their highest rated junior Tomashevsky is lower rated than some Czech nobody Laznicka.|
Well, Laznicka certainly does not have any great sponsor. Our energetic monopol CEZ is so kind to sponsor one 2-game match for Navara every year. If Laznicka, and even Navara, whose tournament list is ridicoulous for 2700 rated player, had opportunities, support, strong GM´s in their teams and super trainers like poor Russians, and chess grandmaster would be considered a personality, like in Russia, and not a strange loser; they would be very happy and their career would develop much faster. Russians should start playing chess better, so far I am sad Babula lost to Morozevich on time in winning position, which helped Russia to solid and undeserved 6th place in the Olympiad:-/
