|Dec-20-09|| ||redwhitechess: that website give a live games where any chess board are being shown at once. what a great idea! even though it become too small then for each board.|
go malakhov and ivanchuck!
|Dec-20-09|| ||mysql: <khulakeg:Using my chess programs, malakhov has been playing with greater superiority than the <loud-mouthed> ponomariov>|
What do you mean loud-mouthed?
|Dec-20-09|| ||returnoftheking: Malakhov won the European rapid championship ahead of Ivanchuk, Gashimov, Movsesian, Shirov and many others. Looks like his work for the world cup pays off!|
|Apr-11-10|| ||The Rocket: lol this guys stats are better than kramnik and anand, Does he only play "weaker" tournaments or whats up?|
|Apr-11-10|| ||Open Defence: perhaps, being a full time scientist might not leave him with time to do more..|
|Apr-11-10|| ||blueofnoon: Russian players seldom get invitations from super tournaments. Therefore, they have to play in open tournaments, team tournaments and "2nd tier" closed tournaments to make a living. (ok, I know Malakhov is not professional)|
This raises their stats of course, but whether they are happy with it I am not sure.
|Apr-11-10|| ||SamAtoms1980: Malakhov went 3-1, drawing four, in the Russian Team Championships (2010), including 3½ points in the last 4 rounds. Way to go Malakhov!|
|May-05-10|| ||Don Cossacks: Some pictures:
|Jul-24-10|| ||sleepkid: Somehow I don't think his current FIDE rating is 2107. Chessgames might want to fix that.|
|Aug-15-10|| ||Cercatore: Current FIDE rating: 2107
Highest rating achieved in database: 2732
Error, or he lost 600 elo points?
|Sep-05-10|| ||polarmis: Apart from the slight error in the current FIDE rating :) it's also not true to say that Malakhov's main line of work is as a physicist. He's a professional chess player, though perhaps a slightly eccentric one! I just translated this very interesting recent interview: |
|Nov-27-10|| ||Birthday Boy: Happy Birthday!! Vladimir Malakhov!!!|
|Dec-29-10|| ||HolyKnight: Yea my hobby is nuclear physicist to.|
|Feb-18-11|| ||kevins55555: OMG This is the highest decrease of FIDE Rating in the world lol! He decreased 600 points! |
|Feb-18-11|| ||Keith Dow: Yes, and the biggest bounce back!

|Feb-26-11|| ||rapidcitychess: What's up with this guy's rating? 2700 to 2100 seems weird.|
|Mar-15-11|| ||hedgeh0g: <Part-time> nuclear physicist?|
|Jun-30-11|| ||nisarg1: No, he's a part-time chess player according to non-chess sources: he's got a Ph.D. and is said to play chess for hobby.|
|Jun-30-11|| ||Troller: Unless he has begun working as a phycisist again he should be considered a professional chess player, at least according to his own words at the last World Cup.|
|Jun-30-11|| ||polarmis: <nisarg1>, see the interview above. "Non-chess sources" can't really be more reliable than his own words.|
|Sep-21-11|| ||Catfriend: <My my, googled your username and it looks like Malakhov is not the only scientist. Have you ever met <User: Catfriend; ? :)>|
Catfriend? :) I'm not a physicist! I'm a mathematician!
|Nov-27-11|| ||talisman: happy birthday and good luck in the next world cup!|
|Mar-28-12|| ||Penguincw: Malakhov is now in a three-way tie for first at the 13th European Individual Championship (2012) with 6.5/8.|
Tomorrow, he faces co-leader Vladimir Akopian with black.
|Mar-28-12|| ||twinlark: It's good to see this very interesting player regain his form after a 2 year slump.|
|Mar-31-12|| ||Penguincw: Malakhov finished with a bronze after tie breaks, with 8/11.|
