|Dec-11-10|| ||falso contacto: impressive win today in the russian championship.
|Dec-11-10|| ||AuN1: with guys like svidler, grischuk, karjakin, malakhov, jakovenko, and nepomniachtchi, it is virtually a super gm tournament.|
|Dec-22-10|| ||Ezzy: Congrats, Ian Nepomniachtchi is the new Russian champion 2010. He tied for first with Karjakin and they played a tiebreak playoff. Both tiebreak games were a draw and so it went to armageddon. Nepomniachtchi drew with black, and becomes Russian champion for the first time.|
|Dec-22-10|| ||thathwamasi: Congrats to Nepo on his win. Fantastic effort. Cant wait for Corus|
|Dec-22-10|| ||AlChess: Well done on your win.One to watch for the future!!!|
|Dec-23-10|| ||ketchuplover: Congrats Mr.N :)|
|Dec-23-10|| ||falso contacto: Big win in Russian Championship. Congratulations.|
|Dec-26-10|| ||Dredge Rivers: The Champion of Russia!
BTW, who is this guy?
|Dec-31-10|| ||percyblakeney: 15th on the January list.|
|Jan-18-11|| ||HeMateMe: When the national Spelling Bee comes around they should have those kids spell chess players names.|
That oughta separate the posers from the real word geeks.
|Jan-18-11|| ||WannaBe: As a follow up, the constestants will be asked to pronounce 'Euwe'...|
|Jan-18-11|| ||Kazzak: On ICC, Svidler pronounced his name "nepomnish(i)" with a very soft i at the end. He should know, they met at the Russian Championship.|
Good player, with a chameleon style, adapts to any opponent.
|Jan-18-11|| ||Kazzak: I Nepomniachtchi vs Svidler, 2010|
|Jan-19-11|| ||bartonlaos: With a lot of potential, he's certainly the dark horse of Tata Steel. It's hard to make predictions for young players, as their steep rating-slopes will suddenly match their playing strength - when they adjust, or else recede into the abyss. This frequently happen around 2650 to 2700. But at 2733, Nepomniachtchi's slope has not yet matched his true playing strength.
Very few players share this high-quality of ascent:
|Jan-26-11|| ||Karpova: That's Nepo: Losing with White to Smeets and then beating Carlsen with Black the next round.|
|Jan-26-11|| ||crazybird: <First it’s worth returning to the past. In junior competitions Magnus and Ian played each other and competed in tournaments on numerous occasions, and back then the advantage was on the side of the Russian. After that the Norwegian dramatically improved, got into the jet stream and rose to the very top of the chess world. Now Carlsen is stronger overall, despite the recent successes of Nepomniachtchi, but in a one-on-one encounter rating, reputation and even the experience of participating in elite tournaments count for little. The bitterness of past defeats isn’t forgotten. Childhood experiences are the most vivid. Therefore, from a psychological point of view, Ian might be a very inconvenient opponent for Magnus. I don’t think that Nepomniachtchi fears Carlsen at all, in contrast to the majority of other chess players. Beating your former “client” out of habit – what could be simpler? Of course, the “client” has changed a little, but his first name and surname have remained the same… >|
Shipov, almost prophetic, at the start of this game.
|Jan-26-11|| ||bronkenstein: Today against Carlsen , he made ˝Number one˝ (which is number three on live BTW ) suffer throughout the whole game , from the very opening (with black ) to the precise execution in the end .|
MC is far from his best shape , and he pushed for the win bit too hard , but neverthless excellent game by Ian B)
|Jan-26-11|| ||fisayo123: Ian actually had the upper hand in their meetings when they where both 11 years old.|
|Jan-27-11|| ||Troller: Congrats on a fine and well-deserved win yesterday!|
Add a little more stability and it seems Nepom is a potential WC candidate in the future. Anyway, as Moro isn't playing much nowadays, Nepom is a welcome addition to top-level tournaments.
|Jan-27-11|| ||Kazzak: Notes on spelling.
Yes, you can spend time learning to write the chtch, but why should you?
The fact that the French perversely write Ivanchuk's name Ivantchouk doesn't have you imitating that, does it?
And Chucky told FIDE to stuff it and "write my name right."
So FIDE should stuff it again, and drop the French style transliteration of Nepomnyashi's name, and let him decide how it should be spelled.
With a little luck, he won't have to suffer the indignity of being called Nepo.
|Jan-27-11|| ||Kazzak: Or are you one of those who wishes that Grichtchouk would do better at Tata?|
Nepomnishi (Svidler, Yermo's pronounciation)
But let him decide, and we will follow.
|Jan-28-11|| ||BobCrisp: How does a Russian get the name <Ian>?|
|Jan-28-11|| ||hms123: <BobCrisp> From his parents? :-)|
|Jan-28-11|| ||alexmagnus: Well it's not pronounced like english "Ian" but like Polish "Jan". The female form, Jana, is quite popular in Russian. The more popular male counterpart is Ivan though.|
|Oct-11-11|| ||JohnBoy: Is this dude any relation to the IM Mikhail I Nepomnishay? This ain't exactly a common surname.|
