|Nov-17-13|| ||fisayo123: <Ed Frank> Been missing out really.|
|Nov-26-13|| ||Penguincw: Happy 30th birthday to GM Baadur Jobava. Not many players have a + record against Carlsen, and he's one of them (+2,=2,-1).|
|Feb-16-14|| ||onur87: i dont understand chess. but jabova is my favourite player. dont need carlsen, aronian, kramnik.. :). love his games. long lives to Jabova!|
|Feb-20-14|| ||Penguincw: Congratulations to Baadur Jobava for winning the Bronstein Memorial (2014) on tiebreaks (ahead of Sergey Fedorchuk and Mikhailo Oleksienko). All 3 finished with scores of 7/9. 6 players were half a point behind. Jobava finished with +5, which is 5 wins, 4 draws, and no losses.|
Even though Jobava was the top seed by a good 24 points, he managed to pick up 10 points in this tournament, bumping his live rating up to 2716. Could 2014 be a career year for him?
|Mar-17-14|| ||Vogelweide: One of the most interesting players at the moment, no doubt..|
|Apr-06-14|| ||LIFE Master AJ: Hello:
I <briefly> cover Jobava's performance in the 2006 Aeroflot Open. (He did pretty well, as I remember.)
|Aug-06-14|| ||fisayo123: Nice guy, Baadur.
|Aug-08-14|| ||onur87: thanks for video fisayo. i want from my heart,one day, he will play world championship match. :) we need colourful player such as him.|
|Aug-08-14|| ||MissScarlett: <In the age of computers, it's the only way to fight. Or you must know everything, or you must be original.>|
|Oct-18-14|| ||Penguincw: Congratz to Jobava for beating Timman in a 6 game match 4 1/2-1 1/2. He lead 2 1/2-1 1/2 after 4 games, but won 2 in a row to win by that score. He also gained 5.1 rating points.|
|Oct-24-14|| ||coolconundrum: Jobava should be passing 2750 soon if he keeps up the good work. Will be nice to see the guy get more invites down the line.|
|Oct-28-14|| ||Gazman5: Really enjoying his playing style at Tashkent and how he's playing against MVL at the moment. He's created an interesting unbalanced position having given up his bishop for 3 pawns and weakened his opponent's king. White may still have an edge but it feels like he has really good practical chances in an OTB situation. Hearing about how a player has some original ideas and style is one thing but to see it in action is very enjoyable.|
|Oct-29-14|| ||crazyim5: If conditioned and mentored properly, this guy is world championship calibre! Original and brilliant player!|
|Oct-29-14|| ||JosepCmd: Go LexySexy! Time to prove yourself!|
|Oct-30-14|| ||Mudphudder: So I hear rumors that this player was involved in a cheating scandal last year?|
|Nov-02-14|| ||JohnBoy: Yeah. What Jobava cheating scandal? Explain.|
|Nov-19-14|| ||Zerebuh: Jobaba has been invited to Tata Steel Chess Masters 2015. Congratulations, lots of interesting chess ahead! :)|
|Dec-01-14|| ||Garech: Just so everyone knows: Baadur is not the kind of guy you can ironic. Okay?|
|Dec-04-14|| ||Annie K.: *|
- Manual wash at 30°C
- Dry in the shade
- Do not ironic!
But srsly, well said, Jobava! He was right. Those kids need to learn some manners. :)
|Dec-05-14|| ||Garech: Lol Annie, great one!!
Sure, he was right in some respects, a little over-aggressive though. He could have turned his ego down a little instead. Still, he has spoken immortal words now - they will never be forgotten!
|Dec-05-14|| ||Annie K.: It's a great meme - if only the general populace were not so terrified of all things chess, it should have gone super-viral!|
Well, he probably wasn't in a great mood at the time ;) - but in his area, polite behavior in chess is taken very seriously, so such a strong reaction to bad manners is not surprising in any case.
It should also be noted, btw, that this sentence construction is perfectly legitimate in many other languages, if not in English. :)
|Jan-16-15|| ||Jim Bartle: Daniel King: "If you're playing a game of chicken with Jobava with two cars are racing toward each other, you know Jobava is going to throw the steering wheel out the window. He's never going to back down."|
|Feb-20-15|| ||kummatmebro: Naa, Giri needs to be punched in the face a couple times. |
Reminds me exactly of those cocky little 11 year olds who are NMs thinking they are a gift to the world when they probably will never play in the US CHampionship.
|Feb-27-15|| ||Penguincw: Congrats to Jobava for bouncing back in FIDE Grand Prix Tbilisi (2015) with a much better tournament. He finished with 5/11 (+3,-4,=4), recording the 2nd most wins and fewest draws, but also most losses. Despite all that, he gained 3 rating points.|
He may have started 0.5/4, but then <conceded> 0.5/4.
|Apr-25-15|| ||DiscoJew: I heard he is a struggling alcoholic. Anyone know if there is some truth to that? If I'm wrong I don't mean to be spreading rumours. Many great people were are are alcoholics at any rate, and Baadur is clearly an extremely gifted player. He does seem to have good and bad streaks though, and I wonder if this is part of the reason for sometimes lacklustre performance? If he did improve on his sobriety with say AA attendance, maybe he could be world champion. He has the talent lots of people think so. Good luck brother!|
