|Sep-29-17|| ||MikhailGolubev: <tpstar> The book was published in June, I am still quite happy with this project. Thank you!|
|Sep-30-17|| ||MissScarlett: <He is considered one of the greatest French authors of the 20th century, but Marcel Proust also employed his literary skills to write glowing newspaper reviews of his own work.|
The novelist secretly paid for them to be published in Le Figaro and other newspapers, newly discovered letters reveal. He wrote the reviews in longhand and had them typed by his publisher “so there is no trace of my handwriting” to connect him with “the money that will change hands”.
The letters to his editor, Louis Brun, demonstrate a flair for publicity that would have been the envy of many a modern advertising executive.
Unconstrained by modesty, Proust described Swann’s Way as a “little masterpiece” which “like a gust of wind blows away the soporific vapours” of other contemporary writing.>
|Oct-01-17|| ||MikhailGolubev: Marcel Proust is a serious argument indeed!) Strangely enough, I am not paying for reviews. And read them with interest as a result. They can be more positive, truth to be told.|
|Oct-01-17|| ||MissScarlett: I don't make the rules, well, guidelines, I just enforce them. Infringe again and you'll be reported to the proper authority. Don't think your title will count for anything; this site's got thousands of GMs.|
|Oct-01-17|| ||MikhailGolubev: <MissScarlett> Well, I just already reported your behaviour, which I am considering to be offensive. Not just a trolling even. Hope, you will be punished accordingly.|
|Oct-01-17|| ||moronovich: <MissScarlett: I don't make the rules, well, guidelines, I just enforce them. Infringe again and you'll be reported to the proper authority. Don't think your title will count for anything; this site's got thousands of GMs.>|
You are really rude <Miss Scarlett>.
|Oct-01-17|| ||Magpye: <MissScarlett> <this site's got thousands of GMs>|
Very few GMs post on this site because people like <MissScarlett> harass them.
|Oct-02-17|| ||Sally Simpson: Don't worry about it Mikhail, Miss S. is actually a very valuable contributor to the site but when it comes to certain rules she can be a bit of a 'jobsworth'
(a stickler, refusing to bend, a Victorian School Teach type etc..etc..)|
She getting you on rule 2
2.No spamming, advertising...
Here I see no harm at all because you are willing and seem to enjoy answering questions and it's certainly not spamming.
Rule 2 is for the fly by night posters. They join, post an advert for some obscure book or DVD and are gone.
And do please do not feel you have been singled out.
She insults everyone. Infact if you have not been insulted by Miss S. on here then you can never say you are member.
So welcome to the club!

Her contributions don't entitle her to anything special.
Best for her to shut up and quit harassing this man. Harassment does violate rule #3. No personal attacks against other members.
GM, send an e-mail to the Admins for control of your page. If anyone comes harassing you like Missy does, then you can place her on Ignore and she cannot post on your page.
|Oct-02-17|| ||perfidious: The <Divine MissS> is not to be taken seriously--I have long since sent him to iggydumb--the overt racism and other forms of hatred outweigh the undoubted contributions in my mind.|
|Oct-02-17|| ||Sally Simpson: Hi Magpye and Perfidious
Just shrug your shoulders, we are not going to get anywhere on here with a thin skin.
And what happens if she gets banned.
We have a lost a tireless researcher who is pretty meticulous in her work. (and will not stand sloppiness.)
OK she gripes. My wife is worse and I've been married to her for 40 years.
But deep down inside she cares.
Not about chess history, but us.
She looks upon us all as her children and if one of is naughty then we get scolded.
We are her flock.
(it's either that or she does like Opening Books.)
|Oct-02-17|| ||zanzibar: <<moronovich> You are really rude <Miss Scarlett>.>|
She's trademarked the such, ya know.
SallyS offers sound advice on the matter.
|Oct-15-17|| ||MikhailGolubev: The book 'Training with Moska: Practical Chess Exercises - Tactics, Strategy, Endgames' by GM Moskalenko has some examples from my games. Immortality!)|
|Oct-15-17|| ||Retireborn: Don't worry Mikhail, you are already immortalized by Kasimdzhanov's queen sacrifice in 2002 :)|
|Oct-15-17|| ||MikhailGolubev: In the book Chess Training for Candidate Masters (NiC 2017) A.Kalinin discussed our 1983 game M Golubev vs A Kalinin, 1983 on 4 pages. He wrongly states that I was a 1st category player then. I was a Candidate Master since 1981, until 1991 when became an IM.|
|Oct-15-17|| ||zanzibar: < Immortality !) >|
I guess <CG> wasn't quite enough... ha!
|Oct-15-17|| ||MikhailGolubev: Understanding the Sicilian - Criticism
|Oct-15-17|| ||MikhailGolubev: <Retireborn> Yes, Kasim game is also in the Moskalenko book, probably the only example there where I lost. Quite a nice combination.
Well, after losing once to Gufeld, I do not really care about the immortality, he put the game in some five books or so I guess. :)
Also, a loss to Korchnoi is in his 55 selected games with Black.|
|Oct-15-17|| ||Retireborn: <Mikhail> Very sporting of you to let Kasimdzhanov play out that mate, I thought.|
|Oct-15-17|| ||MikhailGolubev: <Retireborn> As a rule I am not playing till the mate in the lost positions, but, well, since the game developed in a normal way, i.e. no conflicts between players or something, why not to preserve a bit more chess beauty for the world? I like good combinations! :)|
|Oct-16-17|| ||Retireborn: <Mikhail> I first saw the game in CHESS (Malcolm Pein's magazine) around 10 years ago. Can't remember now if it was you or Kasim who wrote the annotations, but they were very good, and are mostly preserved in my own database.|
|Oct-16-17|| ||MikhailGolubev: <Retireborn> Kasimdzhanov annotated this game here and there, it must have been his notes in CHESS, I guess.
I annotated this game as well, in my book Understanding the King's Indian (2006), in particular. Indeed, stronger engines can make some lines look different now.
It was an interesting game, as Dr Robert Huebner told me and perhaps he is right. :)|
|Oct-22-17|| ||MikhailGolubev: In my opinion, "GM" Iuri Shkuro should be disqualified. My open letter to the Ukrainian Chess Federation President, Viktor Kapustin (lang. Rus)
