OVOD, Evgenija

  OhioChessFan: We are slow to believe that which if believed would hurt our feelings.

  whiteshark: <Ohio>, talking in riddles? :D
Premium Chessgames Member
  OhioChessFan: <ws> It is the dim haze of mystery that adds enchantment to pursuit.
Premium Chessgames Member
  whiteshark: Sure!
Premium Chessgames Member
  whiteshark: Avenge void Jo!
Premium Chessgames Member
  OhioChessFan: Anyway, I figured Ovod was close enough to Ovid to share some of Ovid's wisdom. The next was a quote of Rivarol per mysteries that seemed apropos.
Premium Chessgames Member
  whiteshark: <OhioCheesFan> Thank you for your detailed explanation. It is like they say, ovodue! :D:D:D
Jul-08-14  notyetagm: S Melia vs E Ovod, 2014

This game will definitely *not* be going into Ovod's Best Games Collection.

  perfidious: If the poster above had any sense of perspective or proportion, it might occur to him that such a need to express himself towards this player by posting on what was indeed not one of her better games says far more about him than it possibly could of the player in question.

<perfidious: If the poster above had any sense of perspective or proportion, it might occur to him that such a need to express himself towards this player by posting on what was indeed not one of her better games says far more about him than it possibly could of the player in question.>

I was just remarking that I am not used to seeing 2300-rated FMs get killed like this.

I know FM David Griego and cannot imagine him being annihilated like this.

Jul-09-14  dx9293: <notyetagm> First of all, Ovod is an IM, as is Melia, and I have seen WAY worse losses than this.

And you had better believe FMs (and IMs, and 2500 GMs) lose like this against stronger players often. I have seen it too many times to count. I have seen plenty of worse performances by GMs in tournaments.

If you cannot imagine a FM losing in such a way, you haven't been exposed to enough high-level tournaments and players in real life.

Premium Chessgames Member
  perfidious: As to <neverwillbeagoodplayer>, in my playing days, I not only knew Griego, we met at the board on three occasions.

Yeah--you are reduced to empty rants on the sidelines, because you cannot play at that level. Only pleasure you get is by gleefully pointing out others' errors and mercilessly lampooning them instead of actually playing.

  sonia91: She won the strong Russian Women's Championship qualifier ("Higher League") with 7/9 as the 13th seed. Along with four other players Ovod qualified for the Women's Russian Superfinal 2016.
