RAGOZIN, Viacheslav V.
|Feb-24-06|| ||blingice: <Benzol> You are a endless database of births and deaths.|
|Feb-25-06|| ||Benzol: <blingice> Thanks. It took something like seven months working practically everyday but I think the end product was worthwhile.
However, it must be remembered that I was not working totally alone and I extend my heartfelt thanks to the other contributors.|
BIDMONFA is lucky in a way that a lot of the spade work has already been done for him.
|Feb-25-06|| ||Gypsy: <Benzol> I second <blingice> and thank you for your efforts!|
|Feb-25-06|| ||Benzol: <Gypsy> Many thanks mate. One of my future hopes is that <Resignation Trap> and <Eastfrisian> and yourself get put onto the administrators list.|
|Feb-25-06|| ||Gypsy: <Benzol> I would have to learn to spell ...|

|Oct-08-07|| ||keypusher: Whiteshark, I don't think your link works, so I reposted it. Certainly an interesting collection of pictures! Can anyone explain this one?|
|Oct-08-07|| ||whiteshark: player of the day
Thanks <keypusher>. I deleted my post with this faulty link. Usually I check the links before submittung the post. But this time it was only the wikipedia link, for some reason.
|Oct-08-07|| ||whiteshark: <keypusher> Here you find the story related to the said picture: http://www.chessgraphics.net/rr.htm (scroll down).|
|Oct-08-07|| ||keypusher: <whiteshark> Terrific article; thanks for the link!|

|Dec-06-08|| ||dramas79: <Benzol: In a partnership that was mutually beneficial Ragozin helped Botvinnik become World Champion.>
Didn't Botvinnik implicitly accuce Ragozin of leaking preparation to Smyslov at some point in time?|

Jose Raul Capablanca: <In certain games Ragozin played with great vigor, but at critical moments he makes mistakes.>
From the Russian Bulletin of the event (special issue of "64"), No. 20, 13 June 1936.

" Tal doesn't move the pieces by hand; he uses a magic wand. "
|Oct-08-10|| ||brankat: An invaluable second, a fine writer and teacher. R.I.P. GM Ragozin.|
|Dec-19-10|| ||wordfunph: <He died in Moscow in 1962 whilst compiling "Izbrannye Partii Ragozina", a collection of his own games.>|
his book is available at ebay..
good luck to the lucky buyer!
|May-21-11|| ||jessicafischerqueen: Live film footage-
This is a short film showing part of a training game between <Ragozin> and <Mikhail Botvinnik>:
|Oct-08-11|| ||brankat: Hmmm, Botvinnik made the last move and then stopped the clock, A handshake. I take it Ragozin had won that one :-)|
|Oct-08-11|| ||ughaibu: Regardless of the result, this database has no game with Botvinnik as white against Ragozin which finishes as does that in the video. Can you imagine Botvinnik allowing a real training game to be filmed?|
|Oct-08-11|| ||brankat: <ughaibu> Indeed. And not only Botvinnik. This one may have been some sort of a promo, perhaps?|
|Apr-02-12|| ||wordfunph: "In chess, Ragozin was a fearsome fighter, but even more, in his creative approach, he was an artist, an explorer (and a very successful one) of truth and beauty. At the board , he was never "stingy", never thought only about material , and in life generally, he was no businesman." |

|Oct-08-12|| ||LoveThatJoker: GM Ragozin, today you are remembered!
|May-19-13|| ||EvanTheTerrible: So close to 218 - 218 - 218. That would have been marvelous.|
