|Jul-09-09|| ||DCP23: <Dredge Rivers: Future world champion of Chess Boxing!
(And yes, that really exists!)>
We know it exists because we get regular reports by Chessbase.
Regarding Gormally, he has zero chances I'm sorry to say. It's one thing to bully Aronian, who is below average height, and quite another to actually fight someone who can fight back.
Just off the top of my head, any one of the Siberian GMs such as Khismatullin (currently in Dortmund as Jako's second), Bocharov, Lastin, all of them being 2600++ and large, tall, well-built men weighing about twice that of Gormally each, could easily beat him at chess AND kick his ass in the ring or anywhere else. Blindfolded too.
|Jul-10-09|| ||Dredge Rivers: <DCP23> Actually, I meant Hula Chess! (And that really exists, too!) :)|
|Nov-06-09|| ||Marmot PFL: Is it true that Gormally now works on Wall St.?|
|Apr-10-10|| ||dragonsden: Does Gormally play for England? Or have I gone 'punchdrunk' with that suggestion?|
|Jun-19-10|| ||splatty: <cotdt: GM Gormally is a good chess player, he should face Aronian over the board in a grudge match.> lol|
|Jul-11-10|| ||splatty: Gormally stated that he was around 200 in the world; this is a major exaggeration as he is only 991 in the world out of active players, and 27th in England, and 790th in Europe. Compare that to Aronian, 5th in the world, 4th in Europe, 1st in Armenia. It's the difference between Carlos Tevez and an amateur who plays football for their local village.|
|Jul-11-10|| ||wordfunph: i read that GM Gormally just made a book, i forgot the title..|
title and review please?
|Jul-11-10|| ||wordfunph: ahhh...."Calculate Like a Grandmaster"
|Jul-31-10|| ||Dredge Rivers: <wordfunph> <Calculate Like a Grandmaster>|
Then sting like a bee?
|Mar-28-11|| ||Everett: Perhaps he and Aronian could resort to this option.
|Aug-12-11|| ||wordfunph: "I've never met a grandmaster that was easy to beat."|
- GM Danny Gormally (from his book Play Chess Like the PROs)
|Aug-13-11|| ||BobCrisp: Depends on how much you're willing to pay.|
|Aug-01-12|| ||shadowleaf04: Here's The Danny Gormally Show!
I hope he does an impression of his nemesis, Levon Aronian!
|Mar-31-13|| ||IndigoViolet: His impression of Mickey is spot on, but his Kramnik is rubbish.|
|Aug-12-13|| ||Natalia Pogonina: GM Gormally on the British Championship:
|Aug-12-13|| ||Paint My Dragon: Thanks for posting Natalia; I will visit your site more often if Mr Gormally is a regular contributor! Not sure why he didn't give Mickey Adams a mention at the World Cup though. Jones will undoubtedly enjoy the experience, but Adams could potentially win it!|
|Aug-19-13|| ||Natalia Pogonina: <Paint My Dragon> Thanks! He is; check out Danny's new columns every week, usually on Monday. Today's one is about why the Russians are so good at chess:|
|Sep-18-13|| ||keypusher: <It's only in recent years that Ukraine have started to challenge that, and while Armenia has cleaned up in the last few Olympiads, they have nothing like the strength in depth of Russia, and it should also be pointed out that both Ukraine and Armenia are former Soviet-bloc countries.>|
Actually, Danny, they are former republics in the USSR. Hungary and Poland are former Soviet-bloc countries.
|Sep-30-13|| ||Paint My Dragon: Loving Danny's articles on Natalia's site. His sentiments range from self-doubt to poor form, from disenchantment with tournament conditions to a feeling of being lost with nowhere to turn. The outlook couldn't be much bleaker - and that's probably not untypical of life as a chess pro at the lower levels. |
I shouldn't laugh ... indeed, its hard not to engage in a bit of schadenfreude ... but he informs us he has no friends, no girlfriend, wants to get out of chess and is becoming an angry nutcase - then you skip down the page slightly and there's an invitation to have Danny as your coach. Priceless!
Actually, I think his articles are a refreshing change from the usual and I look forward to each new episode! Keep up the good work Dan! And remember Alnwick was not long ago voted the best place to live in Britain!
|Sep-30-13|| ||dehanne: At the very least it should make one feel better about one's own life, unless one is even further down the deep end.|
|Nov-02-13|| ||Paint My Dragon: A big welcome to GM Gormally, now active on cg.com!|
|Nov-06-13|| ||waustad: Let's hope he doesn't just do something like the "Little Peasant" who found it fun for a few days and hasn't been back. Here is a plea COME BACK ALEJANDRO.|
|Dec-31-13|| ||tamar: Currently winning as Black versus Qun Ma|
