|Feb-17-13|| ||Jafar219: <talisman: happy birthday to one of the greats.>|
The man who lost 0-6 can`t be called one of the greatest.
|Feb-18-13|| ||FSR: <Jafar219> Don't be mean. Fischer made all of his opponents look weak; he went 6-0 against Larsen too, which no one imagined was possible. Taimanov has won games against Botvinnik (twice), Smyslov (thrice), Tal (thrice), Petrosian (four times), Spassky (thrice), and Karpov. Not too shabby.|
|Feb-07-14|| ||Eastfrisian: Currently one of the oldest, perhaps "the oldest" living GM. Happy Birthday GM Taimanov.|
|Feb-07-14|| ||alexmagnus: <Eastfrisian> Taimanov is the third oldest living GM - behind Averbakh and Zemgalis.|

Where did Fischer went?
|Feb-07-14|| ||perfidious: The one who knows ain't tellin'!|
|Feb-07-14|| ||ketchuplover: I'm sure Mark thinks Robert was one of the grates :)|
|Feb-07-14|| ||CountryGirl: Happy birthday, Mark Yevgenyevich! I love loads of your games, especially your original and creative Nimzoindians.|
|Feb-07-14|| ||Penguincw: Happy 88th birthday to GM Mark Taimanov. Hope he's still well.|
< ...he never devoted himself fully to chess, splitting his time and talents between the game and his career as a concert pianist. >
He's already a good player, so imagine how well he'd be if he was a full-time chess player.
|Apr-07-14|| ||RookFile: 2 time world senior open champ.|

|May-17-15|| ||TheFocus: <Fortunately I've got a weak character, so I never did decide to dedicate myself to only one of my professions. And I'm very glad. After all, if I'd rejected chess or music then my life wouldn't have been two times, but a hundred times less interesting> - Mark Taimanov.|
