Kibitzer's Corner
< Earlier Kibitzing  · PAGE 5 OF 6 ·  Later Kibitzing>
Oct-25-07  ArmeniaNL: I hope GM sargissyan can perform well in the team championship and further increase his ELO rating. Hope to see him in top 20 in near future. His last performances show steady improvement in his chess style.

Good luck him.

Nov-25-07  nikolajewitsch: Does anyone know why Sargissian does not play in the World Cup? I mean, I like to see him play for SC Kreuzberg this weekend in the Bundesliga although he could not help them a lot...
Nov-25-07  slomarko: a wild guess: he has not qualified for it.
Nov-25-07  nikolajewitsch: <a wild guess: he has not qualified for it.> Possible, but then he must be the only player of his rating who hasn't, right? There are plenty of IMs there and he has 2670...I thought he would be automatically qualified through rating.

  acirce: <I thought he would be automatically qualified through rating.>

Nope, but he was very close. Check

The last player who qualified by rating:

<30. A. Onischuk (USA) 2665,50>

2665,50 being the average of his July 06 and January 07 ratings (the number FIDE used to decide who qualifies). Sargissian's was 2662,50

Nov-25-07  nikolajewitsch: Interesting, <acirca>, thx. So it must have been his relatively poor performance at the ECC...pity.
Nov-15-08  arsen387: Seems like in this Olimpiad too Sargissian is in great form. In 2006 it was mostly due to his fantastic form that Armenia took the first place. Gabriel is already 2/2 in Dresden, and if he continues like this, Armenia can achieve another great result. Go Gabriel! Go Armenia!
Nov-15-08  ARMENIA: <arsen387> you couldn't have been more correct with your observation! He is 3 for 3 with a 3126 performance thus far and I believe that Armenia will put the winning position on board three tomorrow to take the narrow win against Ukraine and he should be given the honor and privilege to score the full point against such great force such is Ukraine! Imaigine 4 for 4 for him? He deserves all the praise!

God Bless Armenia

Nov-17-08  DUS: Sargissian -- Stellwagen, 1--0

and Armenia -- Netherlans, 2.5--1.5

for today's R5. Congrats!

4.5 out of 5 is just perfect.

Viva Gabriel Sargissian!

Nov-17-08  DUS: <ARMENIA> haven't seen your postings long time, welcome back!
Nov-20-08  DUS: Sargissian -- Grischuk, 1--0

and Armenia --Russia, 2.5--1.5

Viva Gabriel Sargissian!

Nov-20-08  ArmeniaNL: best wishes to gabi, well done man!!!! please try to break 2700 limit, i am desperatly waiting for that
Nov-20-08  Harvestman: What a run Sargissian is on at the Olympiad! 6/7, with no losses.

Out of curiosity, what (and when) was his last loss at an Olympiad?

(Suppose I could try looking this up myself...)

Nov-20-08  Harvestman: Answering my own question, it looks like it was 2004. Ganguly vs G Sargissian, 2004
Nov-20-08  Eban: Sargissian transforms into Kasparov during Olympics!!
Nov-20-08  Udit Narayan: he looks like a young kasparov
Nov-21-08  arsen387: during Olimpiads he is better than Kasparov:) The soul of our team and the main contributor in terms of points. And his game against Grischuk is a real gem. The position in the end is like from a chess composition. Amazingly beuatiful!
Nov-21-08  shintaro go: Yes, for some reason he becomes a point scoring machine in Olympiads. But in Corus B, he was -3 and finished in last place.
Nov-23-08  praddy06: Sargissian has a live rating of 2673.9 +31.9 a massive jump has to be among 2700 club soon the way he plays.
Nov-24-08  ArmeniaNL: <praddy06:> where can i find live chess ratings
Nov-24-08  khursh: <ArmeniaNL:> but it is calculated only for 2700+ club
Nov-24-08  ArmeniaNL: <praddy06:> how do you get that rating of sargissian 2673.9 ? If what you say is corrent then his name should be in the live rating list.
Nov-25-08  manchild: You can calculate the live rating yourself. I don't know how but you definitely can. What he means to say is that his rating of 2673.9 is after adding his performance from this Olympiad (+31.9). His name is not on the list because he has yet to break the 2700 barrier which the list is limited to. However, Sargissian always outperforms in this type of team competition because he has a very strong team spirit. His individual results so far this year has been rather disappointing.
Nov-26-08  arsen387: Much thanks to our golden boy Sargissian who again performed on a fantastic level with the highest rating performance among all players, 2869, with 9 points out of 11 games.
Dec-30-08  arsen387: Gabriel Sargissian was voted as the best sportsman of the year 2008 in Armenia. Definitely he deserved it!
