|May-25-07|| ||chancho: He kind of looks like Alexey Shirov wearing glasses.|
|Jun-04-07|| ||Peligroso Patzer: <Resignation Trap: Is there anybody who thinks Malakhov has a chance against Alexander Grischuk in his upcoming match in Elista?>|
Always mindful of Sam Goldwyn's admonition regarding predictions ("Be very careful when making predictions, especially about the future ..."), I am now prepared to respond to your query:
... no chance at all.
|Jun-04-07|| ||Peligroso Patzer: A fine effort by Malakhov at 15 years of age is featured as today’s GotD:|
D Bubalovic vs V Malakhov, 1996
Malakhov, who is almost exactly ten years older than Carlsen (with an extra three days thrown in), was quite the sensation as a young teenager (for example, World Under-14 Champion at the age of 12). He has become a strong GM, but never quite completely fulfilled his early promise. He was, of course, recently eliminated from the FIDE Candidates by Alexander Grischuk's solid performance in their match.
|Jul-23-07|| ||Troller: Malakhov is playing in the open Politiken Cup in Denmark now. Strangely, there is no page for the tournament on chessgames.com. Top entries are Malakhov, Sargissian, Krasenkow and Nielsen among a total of 18 GMs.|
Live relay begins at 13.00 CET.
|Nov-27-07|| ||micahtuhy: Here is the thing about Malakhov, he is the only player that was in the Candidate matches for Mexico City that ISN'T a professional player! His profession is that he is a scientist, I forget whether it was within chemisty or physics, and the vast majority of his time and effort goes into his work. For him, chess is only his hobby. So, a rating such as his when he does not cosistently work on his chess is freaking amazing.|
|Nov-27-07|| ||Riverbeast: <He has become a strong GM, but never quite completely fulfilled his early promise>|
I don't know how you can say that anyone who achieves a 2700+ rating 'hasn't fulfilled his promise'. Most players in the world would love to 'underachieve' like that
|Dec-02-07|| ||Petrosian63: BTW how tall is Malakhov?|
|Oct-24-08|| ||Cactus: +7 -0 =0 in the Euro Club Cup (2008) so far. All his games have been crushings.|
|Aug-02-09|| ||Everett: In Alburt's opening book for black, he borrows liberally from Malakhov's Sicilian Dragon games. Apparently he's pretty well versed in it.|
|Nov-29-09|| ||Tabanus: Analysis starts here :)
Carlsen knocked him out from the FIDE World Cup (2005) (round 6) but needed blitz games. He was then eliminated by Gata Kamsky in round 7.
