|Nov-26-17|| ||Sularus: i think his given name is pronounced simeon|
|Jan-10-18|| ||FSR: Let's hope.|
|Feb-04-18|| ||sonia91: This 16-y.o. IM won the Moscow Open: http://chess-results.com/tnr328740....|
|May-05-18|| ||Whitehat1963: I wonder what my name might mean in Swahili or Greek or Icelandic or Basque or Chinese. Iím sure itís something profane or embarrassing somewhere! Thatís probably true of most of us. Still, unfortunate name ... in English.|
|Oct-21-18|| ||ketchuplover: Drawn goes Grischuk!|
|Oct-21-18|| ||siggemannen: The issue is the problematic transliteration of Russian names.
It should've been "Semyon", which is a more correct pronunciation wise, and funnily enough used for other players on chessgames, like the more famous Semyon Furman.
I wonder what the process is for "generating" English names when getting your first Russian passport, can you decide on the transliteration?|
|Oct-21-18|| ||sonia91: It's just FIDE being inconsistent with transltteration of names natively written in alphabets other than Latin, of course in passaports and other documents they follow a systematic transliteration ...anyway recently his name in FIDE card was changed to "Semyon"|
|Nov-01-18|| ||sonia91: It should be added in the bio that Lomasov was the top board of Russia that won the U16 Chess Olympiad in 2017. He was the top performer of the event at 2674: http://chess-results.com/tnr319528....|
Also, the Moscow Open victory is worth mentioning as the event was surely stronger than the world under 16....
|Nov-01-18|| ||Tabanus: Mention it then :) We need active biographers.|
|Nov-01-18|| ||sonia91: <Tabanus> Uh?!|
Is "Do it yourself" really your response?
FYI, I cannot do it.
|Nov-01-18|| ||Tabanus: You can type, so you can do it :)
