|Aug-18-05|| ||alexandrovm: thanks for the information guys. So, he is russian.|
|Oct-01-05|| ||aw1988: Why isn't V B Malinin vs A Andreev, 1989 a notable game?|
|Apr-06-06|| ||Mameluk: Story of this guy is a bit strange to me, just check this
So what, we all have our bad days. I would just mention he made GM norms in the same tournaments as Karjakin or Areshchenko, so Ukrainian chess system is great and we should not attack it.
|Jul-27-09|| ||Gryz: I agree aw1988. I think Malinin deserves these two games to be declared notable games. They are 2 of my favorite games ever.|
V B Malinin vs V Savinov, 1988
V B Malinin vs A Andreev, 1989
Is there a way to propose a game as a notable game ? Or is the decision done by some automated process ?
|Sep-26-09|| ||Tabanus: He's born 26 April 1956. ICCF GM in 2002. GM title in 2003, rating peak 2524 in 2004|
Found no picture.
|Apr-01-13|| ||Gryz: He, I just found a webpage describing the life of Vasily Malinin.|
Google's translate actually makes an understandable story of it.
Became a police officer. Got medals. Then studied law. Got a degree. Then taught law and became a law professor. Wrote more than 170 works, co-authored 5 books.
Played some chess for fun. Became a GM. :)
Supposedly he was the last Chess Champion of the USSR. As the USSR ceased to exist the next year.
Very interesting story. This guy maybe deserves a little more visibility. We could at least copy his picture. (I'm sure there's no copyright. It looks like a photo taken for an identity-card or something).
|Apr-01-13|| ||Gryz: My mistake. Malinin was not regular champion of the USSR, he was the correspondence-chess champion.
And if I understood correctly, the last correspondence championship was held between 1995 and 1999. (My guess, as the previous one ran between 1994 and 1999). Funny, to see the last champion of the USSR, almost 10 years after the country fell apart.
|Jun-29-14|| ||smurph: Becoming a Grandmaster at 47 is some story.Who else has done that over the board (not honorary).|
|Jun-29-14|| ||Olavi: Juraj Nikolac
Also some World senior champions, who didn't have the title previously, got it awarded, at least Janis Klovans. That's somewhere in between, probably the performance in the tournament (and only one tournament) wasn't really on GM level.|
|Aug-20-14|| ||ColeTrane: Benko Gambit Fully Accepted. Malinin Variation|
|Jul-26-15|| ||ljfyffe: Malinin scored 7 out of a possible 14 points in the ICCF World Cup IX Final (1998-2001), including two draws.|
|Sep-14-15|| ||goetzaholic: I woud never play Benko Gambit against him|
|Jul-03-16|| ||siggemannen: I love how casually they glance over his chess merits in that article :)
Guess most here wouldn't mind "enjoying chess" and becoming a GM after 50|
|May-27-17|| ||whiteshark: His Polish wiki page: https://pl.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wasil... with some material/sources how he got his (otb) GM title.|
