|Sep-08-13|| ||AylerKupp: <cro777> I'm surprised that Pogonina said that. I wonder what made the game memorable for her? As far as her 17th move, I agree. Ever since then I've referred to positions like that as having a "Pogonina bishop".|
|Sep-08-13|| ||cro777: <AK> She said memorable and demanding.|
|Sep-08-13|| ||nok: Alas, average book don't mean average sales. Especially if the writer is a celeb.|
Goto last sentence.
|Sep-08-13|| ||HeMateMe: <RedShield> Don't be a rude idiot. I didn't contribute that statistic, I just cut and pasted it from a question that was asked by someone else, so don't attach my name to it.|
|Sep-17-13|| ||Natalia Pogonina: < Ever since then I've referred to positions like that as having a "Pogonina bishop".>|
Poor bishop! I thought Steinitz was known for loving to place all his pieces on the first/last rank. And later Karpov from time to time... :) Generally speaking, it's a bad idea, of course. However, from time to time it is justified.
|Sep-17-13|| ||kingfu: Perhaps there should be a page on Chessgames that instructs us on how to properly pronounce names and maybe a little language study.|
I already know how to say Bobby Fischer. Names in the rest of the World can be complicated.
How about we start with Chinese? They have many top players now.

|Oct-09-13|| ||obsesschess: Re Twinlark's sentence above - "Johno's a journo who did a doco in an arvo about ambos and Salvos."|
"Johnathon is a journalist who produced a documentary in one afternoon about ambulances and the Salvation Army (a welfare organization)."

|Oct-15-13|| ||waustad: Now it's off to Rhodes for the European Club Cup. Play starts on the 20th. I guess there is time to get home, do laundry, pack differently due to different climate, etc., etc.|
|Oct-17-13|| ||iamsheaf: weren't you a bulgarian citizen?|
|Oct-17-13|| ||Natalia Pogonina: <waustad> I flew straight to Rhodes to acclimatize and rest a bit, didn't have time to visit my home :)|
<iamsheaf> Of course not.
|Oct-17-13|| ||whiteshark: <acclimatize> Nice prospects! http://www.chessdom.com/wp-content/... :D|
|Oct-17-13|| ||waustad: Natalia, when playing a much higher rated player do you make a big change in your opening repertoire? I've seen, for example Eva Moser playing the Tarrasch as black against Naidisch when that is the only time I've seen that opening by her in around 1000 games published on the net. Could the danger of having somebody with seconds and the like busting one of your pet systems that works against the usual 2150-2450 opposition be the cause? With an outside world job, the time it would take to repair the damage may not be worth it.|
|Oct-17-13|| ||waustad: Sorry that was R Edouard vs E Moser, 2013 not Naiditsch.|
|Oct-18-13|| ||waustad: No Cup page yet, so I guess I'll comment here. If I recall correctly from earlier instances of this tournament, the order players are witten in the chess-results.com initial listing doesn't necessarilly indicate the board they'll play in the actual tournament. Ugra, for example has their two highest rated players Anna Ushenina and Natalija Pogonina listed as 2nd and 4th boards. I expect them to play boards 1 and 2 when both are playing. On the open side, SOCAR has Veselin Topalov listed 5th when his rating puts him 2nd behind Caruana. BTW, If anybody wants more information on previous tournaments, http://www.olimpbase.org/ is an excellent source for international team play. Here is the Natalia Pogonina page: http://www.olimpbase.org/playersw/h... The choose event control that was introduced during the last year is a big improvement over the earlier version.|
|Oct-24-13|| ||HeMateMe: Hi, Natalie. Vladamir Klitschko (the chess boxer) is running for president of the Ukraine|
Kasparov tried to get his United Party running strong in Russia. I see a chess/politician trend developing here--any chance we'll see you in the Duma, giving simuls there, when people need to calm down a bit?
|Oct-24-13|| ||Natalia Pogonina: I am staying away from politics. We have Anatoly Karpov, a member of the State Duma. He can give simuls :)|
Alexandra Kosteniuk is also a member of United Russia, the reigning pro-Putin party. But she is not an official of any sorts, afaik.
|Nov-07-13|| ||waustad: Best of luck in the European Team Championship. That of course applies unless you are playing another of my faves, in which case I can only hope for an excellent and memorable game.|
|Nov-07-13|| ||WannaBe: <waustad> If she is playing another one of your faves, you can always hope for 1/2. =)|
|Nov-07-13|| ||waustad: I'm sad to see either lose, but a really good game justifies it. That being said, playing on a powerhouse like Russia, most opponents on board 3 will have deer in the headlights issues and probably won't be players I know much about. Sadly, teams I know top to bottom probably won't be playing Russia unless there is a Swiss fluke in final rounds, which is less likely with 32 teams for 9 rounds than was the case in Rhodes.|
|Nov-07-13|| ||kingfu: Yes, politics can be messy. I prefer Chess. One board. 2 sides in White and Black. Same rules. Let's play Chess.|
Are the teams set by country in the European Team Championship?
Have you heard anything about Spassky?
Spasibo in advance.
|Nov-08-13|| ||waustad: Here is something to note about the ETCC: Live broadcast is delayed by 15 minutes and so the text broadcast will be delayed accordingly.|
|Nov-19-13|| ||HeMateMe: Hi Natalie, exciting last couple of rounds, as Rus. was chasing the Ukrainians.|
Here's a good photo of the finalists (I think you are third over, on the right hand side?)
Anything special happen in the event that played out so well for the other team?
