|Nov-01-09|| ||Hovik2009: <badest>
hem, maybe, I forgot about that!
but in the level Iran's industry is even if they really wanted(which I really doubt that) to enrich Uranium to weapon's grade, that will take atleast a good ten years.
who know maybe in next ten years our superpowers get a chance to use their aging nuclear stocks on us poor humans!
|Nov-01-09|| ||Nietzowitsch: All those non-European players need more chess praxis.|
|Nov-01-09|| ||badest: <muradov: It looks like 'true' Europeans got tired of getting schooled by Azerbaijan and Armenia repeatedly in team events. What they don't know is that, this is just a beginning :)> I truly admire the team spirit of AZA and ARM! If BG had only 50% of their team-spirit ... :(|
|Nov-01-09|| ||ahmadov: Salam, <muradov>! Sadiq azerkes kimi seni de semimi qelbden tebrik eleyirem!|
|Nov-01-09|| ||ahmadov: <badest> Topalov alone is enough for the Bulgarians to consider themselves as a chess nation... Further victories will definitely come in the future...|
|Nov-01-09|| ||Eyal: <badest> Speaking of team spirit, take a look at the pair of photos I've posted back on p.31 - the members of the Azeri team have been playing together since they were kids...|
|Nov-01-09|| ||badest: <Eyal: <badest> Speaking of team spirit, see the pair of photos I've posted back on p.31 - the players in the Azeri team have been playing together since they were kids...> Those are great pics! :)|
<ahmadov: <badest> Topalov alone is enough for the Bulgarians to consider themselves as a chess nation... > Chess is big in BG (in what other country, except Russia maybe, would you have chess in media on regular basis) and Topalov is of course really well known (even by the "man on the street") ... but when it comes to team events ... hmmmmmmmmm
|Nov-01-09|| ||ahmadov: <Eyal: <badest> Speaking of team spirit, take a look at the pair of photos I've posted back on p.31 - the members of the Azeri team have been playing together since they were kids...> That is true... At the same time, being of similar age also contributes to their success...|
|Nov-01-09|| ||HeMateMe: It just seems odd having the central asian countries in a 'European' tournament. So--Does France get to compete in the once every 4 years Asian Games? But a good point is made above, allowing Israel the right to compete in Europe events, Isr. sort of being a european nation plopped in the middle east. But--those who be the decendants of Jewish people who resettled there? The native jews, palestinians and other minorities within Israel certainly aren't europeans. But if you allow Israel to compete, then you have to allow other countries with a strong genetic link to Europe. |
I guess its a moot point since Azerbaijian won, they clearly put up a strong team every year. And hey--where else can you get multiple Petrosians?

Salam Zahir. Chox sagol. Tebrikler - emeyi kechen hamiya halal olsun! :)
|Nov-02-09|| ||Jafar219: Ahmadov və Muradov, bir həmvətənli kimi mən də sizi təbrik edirəm bu qələbə münasibətilə.Amma bu ermənilərin təbriklərini heç cür qəbul edə bilmirəm..|
|Nov-02-09|| ||Valmy: I disagree with what <HE MATE ME> said about ISRAEL.|
If ISRAEL always plays with EUROPE it is for an evident political reason.
ISRAEL couldn't safely play against some country around.
Imagine a soccer game ISRAEL-IRAN (or LIBAN, or SYRIA or SAUDI ARABIA...), I wouldn't go with my kids at the stadium!
Nothing similar with AZERBAIDJAN or ARMENIA.
Meanwhile, I would say it's a good thing these countries play chess with EUROPE because it makes the EUROPEAN championship almost as difficult as the WORLD Championship (only USA, and CHINA are missing among the big teams).

Maybe one can even understand each other better if one has some common (even just athletic) ground.|
|Nov-02-09|| ||benjinathan: <badest> I assume those countries would not play israel just like in soccer. That is why israel plays in europe:|
For years, Israel competed within the Asian Football Confederation (AFC) because doing so made perfect geographic sense. Israel is, after all, an Asian nation. Eventually, though, Arab states hostile to Israel, starting with Kuwait at the 1974 Asian Games, refused to take the pitch against them. Rather than award forfeit victories to Israel, the AFC capitulated and expelled Israel from Asian football. As a consequence, the Israeli national team was–to borrow the obvious yet fitting metaphor–forced to wander the soccer wilderness for years.
SALONIKA - NOVEMBER 1988 - Isak Al Mulla of Abu Dhabi in the United Arab Emirates lost a game in the International Open Chess Tournament held during the World Chess Olympiad in Thessaloniki, Greece in an unfortunate manner.
In this tournament, it happened that the country of the players was not revealed on the official wall chart.
After he had achieved a winning position in the opening against a player named Nagar, Al Mulla casually leaned over and asked his opponent where he was from. He was shocked when his opponent said that he was from Israel.
The United Arab Emirates is one of the many Arab countries which is officially boycotting Israel. For this reason, Al Mulla immediately reported this situation to the head of his delegation, Mr. Awad Ali.
Under normal circumstances, a player from the UAE cannot play an official chess game against anyone from Israel. However, Al Mulla contended that now that the game was in progress and indeed he had achieved a winning position, there was no point in forfeiting the game now. Mr. Awad overruled him, stating that since, when the game started, nobody had any reason to know that the opponent was from Israel, but now they had become aware of this fact, there was no choice but to terminate the game now. Accordingly, Mr. Awad stopped the clock and the game was forfeited.
|Nov-02-09|| ||strifeknot: It's perfectly sensible to boycott a terrorist nation like Israel. Let them form a colonialist league with the US.|
|Nov-02-09|| ||benjinathan: Yes. Lets boycott all of the terrorist nations; Sweden, Norway and Costa Rica can compete for world supremacy in chess and all athletics.|
Well, maybe not Sweden. Ikea is a form of furniture terrorism which cannot be ignored.

And NORWAY kill whales;-)
|Nov-02-09|| ||benjinathan: Costa Rica wins!|
|Nov-03-09|| ||ahmadov: Salam, <Jafar>, netersen? Islerin neter gedir? Tebriklerine gore cox sag ol! Amma bu ermenilerle de sebrli ol, onlar isteyirler ki, biz keskin reaksiya verek, basqalarinin gozunden dusek...|
|Nov-03-09|| ||Sbetsho: It boggles my mind how primitive mankind is and how childish behavior we still have. Maybe there is hope in the future when we learn to forget the past and understand each other.|

There is hope. But not for us. - Henry Miller

|Nov-03-09|| ||Thuellin: The guy with the flag is Vugar's older brother, right?|
|Nov-03-09|| ||MamedyarovFan: <Thuellin: The guy with the flag is Vugar's older brother, right?>
Yes, <Thuellin>, he is a brother of Vugar. His name is Sarkhan and he is Vugar's manager. You can learn a little more about him at http://www.chessbase.com/newsdetail...|
|Nov-12-09|| ||walker: Open letter of GM Kiril Georgiev
Nov 6, 2009
Grandmaster Kiril Georgiev BFSH turned to the chess community and through the pages of Chessdom.bg.
Dear Sirs of BFSH,
The letter I received by Mr VelchevDoes not conform to my question, why then I have second grade in the country and 54th in the world may fall within the top 5 in the country. Your explanation that I played poorly in the Olympics in Dresden in 2008 is inconclusive, because the overall result of every competition I've played more than 65%. Here are my other questions:
1. The extended national team was formed in 2009 and should therefore be taken into account the results and form of players in 2009. If the coach is to take four imalpredvid Dresden from 2008 plus the champion of Bulgaria, why not announce such criteria as early as 2009, but on 13.09.2009? Why do nyamashesreshta between coach and players to make it clear to us how to form a team?
2. Was there pressure exerted I be removed from the team? I can not agree to the governing board of the federation to speak openly against me and to disbelieve my results and grades. I build a life with labor and sweat their success and will not allow lightly to be forgotten as my merit as a player and as a playing coach.
3. And what is most important - here it is not just for me - it comes to national interests - it comes to national interests and image of the country. Only two years ago we played and we were on the European 7th place, now we are 18th. Then we fought for medals in the last round against Russia izagubihme minimal, now fought for 18 place. I hope to make a serious analysis of the results of the team and to take serious and adequate measures for the future development of chess in the country.
