|Mar-03-10|| ||Kazzak: Will a win get a 3rd GM-norm for Nyzhnyk?|
|Mar-03-10|| ||PhilFeeley: Yes that works too. Missed it.|
|Mar-03-10|| ||PhilFeeley: <Kazzak: Will a win get a 3rd GM-norm for Nyzhnyk?> It should. Here's hoping!|
|Mar-03-10|| ||Kazzak: Nyzhnyk will be working on move order after yesterday's and today's game. Yesterday he lost when not finding the best continuation because he played it safe, and today he keeps letting the sand run out through his fingers by being too cautious.|
Which is very different from the Nyzhnyk one regularly sees. That norm must be weighing heavily on his mind!
|Mar-03-10|| ||Kazzak: Too bad. Nyzhnyk gets flustered ... and blows up his position.|
There was no need to panic, in spite of the time trouble. He made a mess of things after placing the King on h1, and then moving the rook to the second rank.
He'll have to find another win, now. If he makes time control. (The third win, mind you, having wasted two.)
|Mar-03-10|| ||Kazzak: Ngghh - Ehlvest presents Nyzhnyk with the gift of Rb3. They're past the time control, and Nyzhnyk has time to consider the continuation. Pushing the b-pawn would have been OK.
But he puts his Queen on d4 ...|
|Mar-03-10|| ||ROADDOG: I didnt realize that Illya Nyzhnyk is only 13 years old.|
|Mar-03-10|| ||PhilFeeley: Yes, Nyzhnyk seems to be in a tight spot now.|
|Mar-03-10|| ||Kazzak: Given the maturity of his playing, and his quite blood thirsty style, it's amazing that he's only 13. It's really worth it to play through his games at Groningen this year. Particularly Ernst, Pijper - and the draw against Rinderman.|
Too bad about his last two games here - I suspect he may have begun thinking about the GM norm ...
Not over yet, but he's really down on time.
|Mar-03-10|| ||Kazzak: Nyzhnyk had an early advantage and could have begun attacking queenside with 14. Nxc5.|
He failed to pursue that, Ehlvest invaded Kingside, and Nyzhnyk then tucked his King into the corner, which gave the initiative to Ehlvest after the exchange of Bishops. Nyzhnyk was just responding for a while, but then gradually began getting an advantage, chiefly because Ehlvest's Queen was in a precarious place and his Bishop was just shooting about without purpose.
There's no excuse for Nyzhnyk not finding 41.b5 - he was out of time trouble, and could have spent time looking for something better than Qd4.
|Mar-03-10|| ||Kazzak: Nyzhnyk fell apart at the end, and Ehlvest gets the win.|
I suspect that this is when being 13 and going for your final GM-norm is not fun. He knows he could have won yesterday, and he had Ehlvest today. One can wonder whether it's right for kids to be going through this kind of pain ...
But I look forward to seeing more from "Dril" Nyzhnyk.

|Mar-03-10|| ||wolfmaster: Nyzhnyk might be the first Grandmaster without a vowel in his last name.|
|Mar-04-10|| ||ajile: <wolfmaster: Nyzhnyk might be the first Grandmaster without a vowel in his last name.>|
y is a vowel.
|Mar-04-10|| ||tino72: No it isn't!|
|Mar-04-10|| ||Kazzak: I'm looking forward to this fight.
Y is a vowel in some languages, an approximant in others.
|Mar-04-10|| ||HeMateMe: Final standings?|
|Mar-04-10|| ||paavoh: @HeMateMe:
Reykjavik Open (2010)
When you access the tournament page, just change the last number "2" into "1" and you'll see the standings.
|Mar-04-10|| ||kingfu: Why are not the standings here? Who won the !@##$%^%^&&* tournament? Ehlvest and Dreev were there. |
Y is a vowel in the distinct lack of a , e , i , o and u.
We would not want The Scandinavian countries to feel bad about themselves because of being vowellically challenged.
|Mar-04-10|| ||ajile: <tino72: No it isn't!>|
Dude I Googled it. Therefore it must be true.
|Mar-05-10|| ||Tabanus: <just change the last number "2" into "1" and you'll see the standings.>|
Here (at cg) you will only find the four 7/9 players in random (?) or automated order.
To see who actually won the tournament (Ivan Sokolov) it's often best to check the results service used by the organizer, which in this case was http://www.chess-results.com i. e. http://www.chess-results.com/tnr293...
The home page of Reykjavik Open 2010 had a (permanent) link to http://www.chess-results.com/tnr293... where one could follow the tournament day by day. Many organizers are using this service now.
|Mar-10-10|| ||Billy Vaughan: <We would not want The Scandinavian countries to feel bad about themselves because of being vowellically challenged.>|
Hahaha, but I don't think Scandinavia's vowellically challenged. They have <extra> vowels! Å, Ä, Ö, and Ø.
|May-05-10|| ||The Famous Chess Cat: <tino72>
No, he's right. Y really is a vowel. It's also a consonant. It's unique in its ability to occilate between the two. So, the letters in the English alphabet are then: A,E,I,O,U, and sometimes Y. This is taught to most children in English speaking countries, so it's odd you don't know that, but it's definitely accurate.
|May-18-10|| ||PinnedPiece: Y a vowel? In the very popular American game show, Wheel of Fortune, Y is not a vowel.|
<wolfmaster>'s original little joke was ok in at least that sense.
My problem is, when (in English anyway) does it NOT function exactly like any other vowel?
