Kibitzer's Corner
Dec-02-04  KingV93: Always on his game eh! ;)
Apr-06-05  Runemaster: Neverov, neverov, neverov, neverov, neverov! The extra syllable messes up te iambic pentameter, so as a great king's gambit player once said "Never say Neverov again".
Apr-06-05  WTHarvey: Here are some chess diagrams of critical points in Valery's wins:

  Appaz: <WTHarvey> Wow! Whoever unknown (to me) player we kibitz, you seem to pop up with a page of brilliant finishes from that player.

Thanks, great work!

Apr-06-05  WTHarvey: <Appaz> Thx! Imo, combinations are bound to be the most memorable part of the game and the least controversial part. To paraphrase Alekhine in part, the only chessplayer you need to know is your immediate opponent. :-)

That's especially true if there is a dearth of fat ladies in Russia.

Jan-13-06  BIDMONFA: Valery Neverov

NEVEROV, Valeriy

  wordfunph: Happy Birthday GM Neverov!
Jun-21-13  Abdel Irada: Strange that Neverov was Ukrainian champion in 1983, but we have none of his games from before 1984.

Jun-21-13  kramputz: BIDMONFA spelled his name wrong
Jun-21-13  Abdel Irada: <kramputz: BIDMONFA spelled his name wrong>

Nonsense. He spelled it "BIDMONFA," as he always does.

But seriously: When romanizing names in a different script (in this case Cyrillic), one can spell them in different ways. Both "Valery" (as on <>) and "Valeriy" (as on Wikipedia) are widely accepted.

Oct-16-13  Kinan: He is my trainer in the Ukrainian chess club "Shakhrad". :)
