LOL~~~~~well,Russians are really amazing~~~You see,I once liked Sharapova and Safin for some time,and when I was a kid,everybody should read<how the steel was tempered>,and I still remember a bit about the plot,like burying the gun?in the prison?...and those Russian folk songs and revolutionary songs are really popular at that age too... I think Russians are quite talented both physically and mentally~~

HAHA~~BTW,if idont remember wrong,You are the first Russian I have talked to.

  Ladolcevita: <Oh,and its also very famous here> The Pushkin's poem<If by life you were deceived>....seems everybody loves to quote when something miserable has occurred...

Hope its not the stereotype~~~

Aug-22-09  DCP23: <Ladolcevita: when I was a kid,everybody should read<how the steel was tempered>,>

Interesting. When I was a kid, it was part of the school program too. But...

<and I still remember a bit about the plot,like burying the gun?in the prison?...>

...since I haven't read it myself, I can't say anything about the plot :)))

<HAHA~~BTW,if idont remember wrong,You are the first Russian I have talked to.>

Well, I'm happy to provide that experience for you ;)))

BTW: A very useful site as I'm sure <DCP23>, <Ladolcevita> & <Don Cossacks> are already all aware of is this Chinese website: 'Sina Chess News Blog' which is positively indispensable: http://blog.sina.com.cn/chessnews

;)

Aug-23-09  Don Cossacks: <malthrope>Yeah I'm already aware of the above mentioned Chinese website. Tomashevsky continues to flash his rock-solid form,beating Zhou Jianchao yesterday.Nepo finally gets a revenge against Wang Yue.Meanwhile Ding and Malakhov again plays the same opening with Ding winning this time.I think Russian men will win the match.
Aug-23-09  malthrope: <Don Cossacks: <malthrope>Yeah I'm already aware of the above mentioned Chinese website.>

Right <Don Cossacks> - that's why I posted this URL link in full for others that weren't <already> aware of it... :)

Positively indispensable! ;)

Aug-23-09  DCP23: Okay, the blitz part is over, 10 rounds played all in one day one after another.

The results are:

MEN: Russia 30 : 20 China
WOMEN: Russia 22 : 28 China

The best player in Blitz turned out to be Evgeny Tomashevsky with 7.5/10.

Of course it pales in comparison to Tatiana Kosintseva 's incredible 8.5/10 in rapids but still it was the best blitz result from all 4 teams.

Aug-23-09  DCP23: To summarize:

CLASSICAL 5 rounds:

MEN: Russia 13 : 12 China
WOMEN: Russia 11.5 : 13.5 China

RAPID 10 rounds:

MEN: Russia 29 : 21 China
WOMEN: Russia 25 : 25 China

BLITZ 10 rounds:

MEN: Russia 30 : 20 China
WOMEN: Russia 22 : 28 China

TOTAL (C + R + B):

MEN: Russia 72 : 53 China
WOMEN: Russia 58.5 : 66.5 China

TOTAL M + W:

RUSSIA 130.5 : 119.5 CHINA

Russia won all 3 of the Men's matches, China won 2 and drew 1 of the Women's matches. Overall, Russia won this year's event.

Aug-23-09  DCP23: Evgeny Tomashevsky was the best player in this year's Russia-China match, and proved to be EXCELLENT at ALL time controls.

Ju Wenjun was the best scorer from team China and 2nd best overall, apparently this girl is very talented and probably underrated, and we will surely be hearing more about her.

Ian Nepomniachtchi was fantastic at rapids, great at blitz, but only average (50%) at classical, something he needs to work on if he intends to progress further. NB: It appears he actually has 0.5 points less than he should, due to an arbiter's fault.

Tatiana Kosintseva was absolutely unstoppable in rapids, tearing through everyone (literally -- she did beat each and every girl on the opposing team in rapids) and achieving a record 8.5/10 score. Unfortunately, she botched the classical part something awful and that's why she is only +3 overall.

Aug-24-09  Don Cossacks: <DCP23>Thank you for the complete results you've posted.Congratulations to *our* team for winning the Russia-China Match this year.I hope Evgeny Tomashevsky would be Russia's brightest hope on the future.By the way,the games are still not uploaded by chessgames.com?
