|May-03-06|| ||The17thPawn: <Caissanist> - I don't have a copy in PGN format and the text from Chernev is in descriptive notation. Maybe I could force my Fritz nine to play through the moves and then create a file after game analysis. I'm really not sure how and any advice from well versed Fritz users out there would be welcome. I've only had the program briefly and I'm still a newby when it comes to its higher functions. Any generous souls out there seeing this message please respond!|
|Aug-24-06|| ||rudysanford: Perhaps I could be of assistance. I am using Chessmaster 9000. It has the option for displaying moves in several notations. When playing over games in older books, I adjust the game status to descriptive notation and then save them into a .pgn file. Chessmaster must track the moves internally in algebraic but then display them as descriptive, when selected, because saving to .pgn yields a .txt file in algebraic moves.|
I then import these older games to my databases which are maintained by SCID.
If you would like to send me the moves or a scan of the pages in descriptive, I would be happy to do this for you and then post the game to the pgn upload on this site.
Let me know if you are interested.
I can highly recommend SCID, especially for the price: $0.00.
|Oct-13-06|| ||notyetagm: Could someone please comment on the book <Kapablanca>, the Russian language game collection of Capablanca written by Panov? |
How does it compare to the standard English language work <Capablanca's 100 Best Games> by Golombek?
I read in OMGP Volume 5 that Panov's book on Capablanca was critical in turning Karpov into a top player.
|Oct-17-06|| ||The17thPawn: <rudysanford> - Thanks for your reply. I will attempt converting the game into a .pgn file using you method and submit. Thanks a bunch!|
|Oct-21-06|| ||notyetagm: Anyone have any idea where I can buy the Russian-language book <Kapablanca> by Panov?|

|Nov-01-06|| ||Caissanist: <The17thPawn:> There is also currently an online utility that will do the conversion at http://alawi.csail.mit.edu/~alawi/c...|
|Nov-01-06|| ||gauer: Panov is well-known for the Caro-Kan attack named for him, but I also sometimes see in the Spanish Closed game that there is a set-up called the Panov formation. What's the theory of the latter attack plan, and is it good for black to avoid it, or has black found improvements?|
|Nov-01-06|| ||2021: Happy birthday Panov!|

|Nov-01-07|| ||xrt999: <gauer: Panov is well-known for the Caro-Kan attack named for him>|
In top level play, Panov was +0 -0 =3 with this opening (Caro-Kann with 4.c4) and in each game he played different 6th moves: Be3, Bf4, and Bg5, drawing each one. Not exactly mind-boggling success to get an opening named after you.
It must be that he either introduced this new variation of the Caro, or he wrote about it extensively.
|Nov-01-07|| ||RookFile: Well, it was called the Panov-Botvinnik attack, I can attest to that.|
|Nov-01-07|| ||xrt999: Right, so why is Panov's name associated with 4.c4, since Botvinnik was +6 -2 =1 as white with 4.c4?|
Of those nine games, he played 6.Bg5 five times, and therefore I always assumed that 6.Bg5 was <the> Panov-Botvinnik attack. (Botvinnik was +3 -2 =0 with 6.Bg5 as white.)
|Nov-01-07|| ||RookFile: That happens with a lot of things. Take for example the Fischer variation of the Nimzo - a line that Alekhine was playing before Fischer was even born, against Reshevsky, and others.|

<The loser is always at fault.>
It rings true. :D
|Jun-26-08|| ||whiteshark: Quote of the Day: "The loser is always at fault." (Panov)|
<The learner always begins by finding fault, but the scholar sees the positive merit in everything.> (Hegel)
|Jun-26-08|| ||babakova: Not if it's poker...|
|Dec-29-08|| ||jamesmaskell: Its amazing that Panov and Botvinnik didnt actually play the Panov Botvinnik that many times...|
|Jun-02-09|| ||Fanacas: Many people who have openings to there names dont play it much, it could be becous there arent that many annontet games of them or that they simply just studied the opening. (steinitz on the other end played alsmost all of hist opening constantly)|
|Nov-01-09|| ||Ghost of Merlin: happy birthday vasily! it's my mom's birthday too...|
