Mar-02-09  abstraction: first!
Mar-02-09  Pawnage: Last! Go Ivanchuk, at the very least I hope he remains undefeated.
Mar-02-09  Stonehenge: Firstish!
Mar-02-09  gus inn: Almost first !
Mar-02-09  kasca: For your amusement 'en attendant les chuks'

'chuk' is an eastern European or Slavik suffix meaning 'son of'. Therefore 'Ivanchuk' is roughly 'Johnson'. Any ideas on 'Gris-chuk'?

Mar-02-09  runkeldunk: Why on earth has noone written a book on Ivanchuk and his games. I am sure there would be many chess fans interested in reading such a book.
Mar-02-09  ontocaustic: does not everyone write books on ivanchuk or chess?
Mar-02-09  abstraction: < runkeldunk: Why on earth has noone written a book on Ivanchuk and his games. I am sure there would be many chess fans interested in reading such a book.> from a quick glance at amazon, there are a few out there (but some are out of print), eg., Vassily Ivanchuk: Chess Emperor (Chess Emperors) by Vassily Ivanchuk, Slobodan Ostojic, and Dobrila Nikolic 1996; Vasily Ivanchuk's Best Games (Cadogan Chess Books) by Eduard Gufeld 1998 But there doesn't seem to be anything recent or comprehensive ... an opportunity for an aspiring chess author

maybe 'son of Greece' for Grischuk?

Mar-02-09  Billy Vaughan: One interesting aspect of this matchup is if Ivan wins, he switches spots with Gris on the live rating list.
Mar-02-09  eightsquare: <billy vaughan> why dont you start your chessforum.anyway,i am a fan of ivan too!!!!

  whiteshark: Is Onischuk roughly <Ben-Oni>?
Mar-02-09  hedgeh0g: Let the battle of the Chucks commence!

There can only be one Chucky!

Mar-02-09  Absentee: I was very surprised by Grischuk's performance. This should be an interesting game.
Mar-02-09  furrer: Yeah - only one chucky!
Its probably gonna be the most interesting game in the tournament - Ivanchuk will play for a win - no doubt!
Mar-02-09  mohitm: anyone for guessing the opening?
Mar-02-09  hormuspeston: Does the "chuk" part of Ivanchuk rhyme with "luck" or "book"? Further, is it I-vuhn or Ee-Vaan? Just curious!

  parmetd: Go chucky!!!

I'm guessing chuckster is going for the KID if Cnuk goes for d4.

Not such a big deal. It's just Child Play.

  moronovich: <mohitm> A sicilian is not a bad guess.I guess :)
Mar-02-09  mohitm: but it will take guts to play e4 against chucky. IMO
