Dec-03-04  PinkPanther: <athny>
Unless I'm mistaken, you'll never see a Slavic woman with a name ending in ov, it will always end in an a. Smashnova, Kourkikova, Navraratilova (sp?), etc.
Dec-03-04  von schlepstein: Sorry, "separate", not "seperate".
Dec-04-04  vonKrolock: Ibragimov is from Kirgizia, a landlocked republic in west central Asia bordering on northwestern China; (formerly an Asian Soviet Republic) He stayed here in my State in 1991, and played at the World Junior Ch won, i believe by V. Kramnik (in Guarapuava) see the decisive game Zsofia Polgar vs Kramnik, 1991 - they played also a Student's Team Ch, and the Soviets won (Ibragimov, Sakaev, Kharlov)
Dec-04-04  Maroczy: <PinkPanther> On a similar note, Lithuanian women's names end in the letter e.
Dec-04-04  vonKrolock: <Maroczy> And, if II where a Lithuanian, his name would be Ildaras Ibragimovicius
Dec-05-04  vonKrolock: Although very young, he was already a chain smoker (i hope he solved this problem, because he's really a nice fellow) - Following the Student's Ol i played a Blitz Ty whith all the Soviet Team except Kramnik: it arrived that my game against the Argentinian Fabian Fiorito had some particular interest in the prize sharing (not for me, i was an outsider), and suddenly our table was surrounded by kibitzers, amongst them the trio Sakaev-Kharlov-Ibragimov - it was the only instance that one of my OTB games was kibitzed by a World Champion Team!

  ahmadov: <Knezh:Russian by birth, Azeri by origin.> He might have lived in Azerbaijan, but it is certain that he is not an Azeri. He is either from one of Central Asia republics or Muslim parts of Russia (Tatarstan or Bashkiria). Actually, <vonKrolock> has already stated that he is from Kirgizia (Kyrgyzstan), which I believe is true.
May-24-05  arifattar: <ahmadov> <Muslim parts of Russia> Interesting you didn't include Chechnya. Just curious to know as to what's the public opinion in Azerbaijan and other CIS countries.

  ahmadov: The Azeri people supports the struggle of the Chechen people. We are friends and brothers. However, we will never support those criminals who perpatrated the Beslan tragedy. Crime and struggle for freedom are completely different concepts. As you can see, our view of this issue is not different from that of the rest of the world.

Premium Chessgames Member
  ahmadov: I did not mention Chechnya among "Muslim parts of Russia" because Ildar has Asian look, not because I perceive Chechnya as an independent state.

  Benzol: The first game must be by another player if he was born in 1967.
Nov-26-06  Dr.Lecter: He is a nice player, actually. If you flip through his wins, you can see he defeated world class players like Leko, Morozevich, and Akopian.

How did the game end and why don't you submit it?

Jan-12-07  BIDMONFA: Ildar Ibragimov

IBRAGIMOV, Ildar
http://www.bidmonfa.com/ibragimov_i...

Feb-07-07  Dr.Lecter: <chessgames> when I search for "ibragimov" the database goes to some random guy. Can you correct that to go to Ildar?
Apr-10-07  Dr.Lecter: Ibragimov co-won the foxwoods open. congrats!
Apr-10-07  vonKrolock: <Karpova:How did the game end and why don't you submit it? > I won that Game, I gave checkmate with my arrow hanging (clocks were still old-style) and the Russians were very glad about this - but I really realized just afterwards that Fabian was playing for one of the prizes, I was distracted, just enjoying the oportunity to meet some foreign 'killers' - Fiorito is also a good player and a nice fellow. (sorry for the belated reply - I saw Your question just now) ps: I have not the score, it was just a blitz T - the Chess historian L. Holzmann delivered a cross-table, maybe this can be still obtained)
Apr-11-07  Dr.Lecter: Wow, <vonKrolock>'s one kibitz made this page have TWO pages of kibitzing.
Apr-11-07  thedoyle: this guy yelled at me once. he's a jerk in my opinion. i didn't even do anything wrong.

  Zkid: Ibragimov ended the streak I had during my best tournament (first GM victory) by beating me (very convincingly) in the last round. Great guy.
Jul-26-11  TheTamale: My guess is that his name Ibragimov is some sort of Russian equivalent of Abraham (it is similar to the Muslim equivalent of Ibrahim). I looked up Kazan, Russia on Google maps... looks like a great location! I wonder what the climate is like.

  waustad: Tomorrow he's playing Ilya Nyzhnyk in the Moscow Open. I was surprised to see the US flag next to his name. He isn't very high profile.
Apr-14-14  The Last Straw: http://www.365chess.com/game.php?gi...

Oops. And it was his only loss in the tournament.
