|Jun-08-04|| ||Tigran Petrosian: Riumin had a lifetime plus record against Capablanca and Euwe. |
|May-14-05|| ||paladin at large: <Tigran Petrosian> Not true, Capablanca was two wins and one loss against Riumin. But Riumin blundered away his queen in a complex game in one of his losses, so overall he played Capa pretty tough. His games deserve attention. |
Ryumin is a more common transliteration from the Cyrillic, I believe.
|May-14-05|| ||Calli: BCM offers a book on Ryumin and Belavenyets. Scroll down the page a bit to see it.|
They also spelled the name with a "y".
|May-15-05|| ||paladin at large: <Calli> Thanks!|
|Nov-12-05|| ||WannaBe: Nikolai's children becomes Riumin-lans.
Okay, someone shoot me now, just get it over with.
|Nov-12-05|| ||WTHarvey: Here are some puzzles from Nikolai's games: http://www.wtharvey.com/rjum.html|
|Nov-21-05|| ||Koster: What did he to do to get sent to Siberia? Was it dropping his queen to Capablanca?|
|Mar-22-06|| ||paladin at large: <Koster><What did he to do to get sent to Siberia?> There were a lot of Russians regrouping in Siberia in 1942. You would not have wanted to be a Russian in western (German-occupied) Russia in those days.|
|May-04-06|| ||Gypsy: <In 1935 he won a match against Nikolay Dmitrievich Grigoriev (+6, =1, -1)...> Kotov/Yudovich give 1931 as the date for this match.|
|May-13-06|| ||Benzol: <Gypsy> You're quite right. Thanks I'll fix that.|
|Sep-05-06|| ||BIDMONFA: Nikolai Nikolaevich Riumin|
RIUMIN, Nikolay N.
|Sep-05-07|| ||brankat: Second behind Botvinnik twice (only 1/2 point), wins against Capablanca, Euwe, Stahlberg, 3 times Moscow Champ, which in itself was no small feat! |
All this while still in his twenties. Must have been a very talented, and strong master. Pity, he died so young. Could have gone far.
|Sep-05-07|| ||whiteshark: player of the day|
|Sep-05-07|| ||Resignation Trap: Here's a photo with him from the 1933 USSR Championship: http://www.chesspro.ru/pict2/rc33-7... : Left to right: Ilia Abramovich Kan , Nikolai Nikolaevich Riumin , Mikhail M Yudovich Sr. and Nikolai Sorokin .|
|Sep-05-08|| ||brankat: R.I.P. master Riumin.|
|Apr-20-09|| ||DWINS: This guy was a fantastic attacker. Chernev says that "so bewildering were his conceptions that they once caused even the great Capablanca to lose his bearings and forfeit a game to him on time limit!"|
|Sep-05-09|| ||laskereshevsky: <Mikhail Botvinnik wrote of him "... ...He, undoubtedly, was one of the strongest representatives of the younger generation of chess masters. He loved chess passionately and he was a very pleasant man...>|
Thisis to be frame!... Thought never read so gently words about another chess-player from BOT....
|Sep-05-09|| ||whiteshark: I wonder if friends wrote him as NN on the score sheet?|
|Sep-20-09|| ||whiteshark: Never touch a riumin' system!|
|Sep-25-11|| ||wordfunph: "If you want to become a master, you must learn to lose, you must learn to
withstand a blow, so that in the game following a defeat you play as if nothing had happened!"|
- Nikolai Riumin (to the young Yuri Averbakh)

|Sep-05-13|| ||brankat: R.I.P. master Riumin.|
|Sep-05-13|| ||Abdel Irada: Why do I find it so easy to imagine a young Riumin knocking about St. Petersburg, having frequent conversations with Rodion Romanovich Raskolnikov and moodily standing on bridges staring into the reeking waters of the Neva?|
|Sep-05-14|| ||Penguincw: R.I.P. Nikolai Nikolaevich Riumin.
Not too bad of a player, as he beat 2 world champions: Capablanca and Euwe (obviously with white and when they weren't champion, but still impressive) and also women's champ Menchik with black.
|Sep-05-14|| ||ColeTrane: "get a ruimin" (room) or "cruisin' for a riumin" . "raging riumin" . "is there any riumin the back?" etc. ... just so this guy gets a GOTD|
|Sep-06-14|| ||tpstar: Riumin vs Euwe, 1934|
