|Aug-09-05|| ||stijn: Open letter from this guy at chessbase.com. Seems like he got a really unfair treatment by FIDE. Too bad this had to happen to such a strong grandmaster.|
|Aug-09-05|| ||euripides: <nikolaas> I always thought the sixth line was 'kaum einen Hauch' ?|
|Aug-09-05|| ||euripides: Lessing's reference to the queen suggests he was thinking of the European rather than Arab rules.|
|Nov-06-05|| ||Poisonpawns: Good job from Milov in winning Corsica Masters 2005 and totally destroying Anand in the finals.|
|Nov-06-05|| ||mrbasso: totally destroying Anand?
He was totally lost in game 4.
19.Rac1 => finito
|Nov-06-05|| ||PinkPanther: <mrbasso>
The same could be said for Anand about the second rapid game.
|Nov-06-05|| ||Chnebelgrind: An unbelievable effort of Milov. He not only defeated Anand but also Judit Polgar and the winner of Dortmund 2005 Arkadi Naiditsch. Milov has very strong nerves. I remember a game of the FIDE WC V Milov vs Judit Polgar, 2001 where I didn't believe that he would come through.|
|Nov-06-05|| ||Udit Narayan: It doesn't seem like anything will stand in his way from reaching the 2700 mark.|
|Nov-13-05|| ||DutchDunce: Criminey. Any thoughts of bringing this guy up for Mainz 2006? With a 4-1 lifetime record vs. Vishy, he could be the most dangerous opponent of all.|
|Nov-13-05|| ||ughaibu: DutchDunce: That's a good nostalgic word, thanks.|
|Jul-06-06|| ||BIDMONFA: Vadim Milov|
|Aug-01-06|| ||Peligroso Patzer: In addition to the tournament successes listed in Milov's bio, he was equal first at the World Open last month but lost a tie-break game to Gata Kamsky.|
|Aug-05-06|| ||WTHarvey: Here is a little collection of crucial positions from Vadim's games: http://www.wtharvey.com/milv.html|
|Oct-01-06|| ||WTHarvey: Vadim Milov jumped from #98 to #47 on the Oct FIDE rating list with a gain of 37 rating points for the quarter.|
|May-29-07|| ||Resignation Trap: Milov won the 2007 Chicago Open this weekend: www.chesstournamentservices.com/chicago after defeating Yury Shulman in an Armaggedon tiebreak game.|
|Aug-01-07|| ||geraldo8187: alright, i do share a birthday with a famous chess player|
|Jun-04-08|| ||jon01: He is apparently going to join the "2700 Club".|
|Jun-05-08|| ||percyblakeney: Milov is around a hundred points ahead of Pelletier even if it was the latter that was given the Swiss Grand Prix spot. Milov shared first with Karpov in Biel 1996 but never plays in top tournaments nowadays. He is a member of the 2700 club at the moment and will maybe get more invitations to strong events.|
|Jul-08-08|| ||waustad: After +1 in the World Open, his rating will take a serious hit. Losses to people rated 300-400 points lower can't help.|
|Jul-11-08|| ||jon01: He was beaten by IM Justin Sarkar in World Open.|
|Sep-17-08|| ||sisyphus: Vadim Milov gave a simul in Arlington, Virginia, yesterday. It was after he finished with the match with Rybka hosted by IM Larry Kaufman.|
He said he was born in the Urals. There were no good coaches there, and when he left the Soviet Union at 18, he was "not a very good player".
He's a quiet guy, a little shy, and sometimes intense. His playing style strikes me as smooth and patient.
The word on the street is that he doesn't get along with the Swiss Chess Federation. Maybe that's why Pelletier gets more high-profile invitations.
|Oct-18-08|| ||Daodejing: Milov won against Rybka
|Oct-26-08|| ||sisyphus: To be fair, Milov won last month's Rybka match 4.5 - 3.5, though most games were handicapped.|
Rybka scored 1.5/2 (both games with Black) at even strength. GM Milov scored 1.5/2 (both games with White) receiving odds of a pawn. And he scored 2.5/4 receiving Exchange odds.
|Aug-01-10|| ||wordfunph: <jon01: He is apparently going to join the "2700 Club".>|
2705 during the July 2008 FIDE Rating List..
|Aug-01-14|| ||Penguincw: Happy 42nd birthday to GM Vadim Milov.|
