|Feb-17-06|| ||EmperorAtahualpa: Interesting games! I guess his IM title in 1950 was an honorary title?|
I found some more games by him, including a game against Chigorin and one against Janowski, which I have submitted to <chessgames.com>.
|Feb-17-06|| ||Gypsy: Not sure what you mean by 'honorary'; 1950 was the first year when FIDE gave out the IM and IGM titles. Before that the titles were earned in tournaments of big national congreses. Nenarokov was a genuine master from the early 1900s. From the standpoint of history, his most famous result is a match win over Alekhine -- some sources give it as 3:0, some as 2:0 -- which Alekhine tactfully omitted from his tabulated results in books.|
|Feb-17-06|| ||Gypsy: <Alekhine-Nenarokov, Moskow 1909: +0 =0 -3>, Kotov (Alechinuv sachovy odkaz, Prague 1956).|
|Feb-17-06|| ||EmperorAtahualpa: <Gypsy> I guess my English is failing me. :) Sorry about that.|
With "honorary" I was trying to say that I assumed the IM title was given to him as a recognition for his chess career in general rather than the title was given after meeting some strict requirements.
I hope this clarifies?
|Feb-17-06|| ||Gypsy: <EmperorAtahualpa> Kotov-Judovich (Soviet Chess School, 1951) state that Nenarokov earned his (Russian) master title on the basis of his successful results in matches against Tartakower (1905), Duz-Chotimirsky (1907), and Alekhine (1909). In addition to the dates given above, K+J also have Nenarokov as the Moskow champion in 1921. |
Nenarokov was acclaimed for his ability to play successfully in cramped positions -- using an active and dynamic play style that anticipated much of the later developments.
As far as I know, in 1950 all Soviet chessplayers with the title of GM of USSR got the IGM title, all with the russian/soviet master title got the IM title. There was no case by case deliberation (w.r. to the USSR players).
|May-13-08|| ||whiteshark: More chess results in his bio: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vladim...
in <1905>, he drew a match with Savielly Tartakower (+2 –2 =0);
and in <1907> he won against Fyodor Ivanovich Dus Chotimirsky (+5 –3 =1)

|Dec-19-09|| ||Karpova: From C.N. 6409
Dan Scoones translates page 33 of the Russian-language St. Petersburg 1909 tournament book about Nenarokov's withdrawal from that tournament after four rounds:
<It is no coincidence that in the rules of the German Chess Union withdrawal from a tournament without a valid reason and without the consent of the Tournament Committee suffices for the departing player to be barred from future events. This is exactly what happened with Nenarokov. Whereas Goldfarb withdrew because of illness and Rozanov owing to family matters which called him urgently to Moscow, Nenarokov did not even inform the Tournament Committee of his departure. On this basis Article 9 of the official programme was applied, and he is now subject to a complete ban. That a Russian player should behave in this way during Russia’s very first international tournament is especially insulting... In accordance with the programme, the games of all three players who withdrew were not counted>
|Jul-15-12|| ||Karpova: The '(Neue) Wiener Schachzeitung' of 1909, on page 307 also gives the result of the Nenarokov - Alekhine match as 3-0. Apparently, Alekhine gave up the fight after his 3rd loss.|
|Aug-26-12|| ||Karpova: Nenarokov was from Andijan. His withdrawal from St. Petersburg 1909 had serious consequences for him as he was not allowed to participate in a (one) great Russian tournament (<[...] der als "Flüchtling" aus dem internationalen Meisterturnier zu St. Petersburg 1909 mindestens für die Dauer eines in Rußland stattfindenden großen Turnier "bestraft" werden mußte, d. h. nicht eingeladen und eventuell nicht zugelassen werden durfte.>|
From page 344 of the 1911 'Wiener Schachzeitung'
|Nov-05-13|| ||Karpova: Nenarokov won the Moscow City Championship 1924 in play-offs against N. D. Grigorjew* with 8:6.|
From page 234 of the August 1924 'Neue Wiener Schachzeitung'
* Nikolay Dmitrievich Grigoriev
|Feb-10-14|| ||Karpova: P. P. Saburov: <W. J. Nenarokow> of Andijan could not be invited to the St. Petersburg Main tournament 1911 (withdrawal 1909). First place in a 4-rounds 4-player tournament in 1908 with the Moscow Championship at stake(ahead of B. Blumenfeld, Goncharov and Duz-Chotimirsky). |
He won a match against Alekhine in Moscow 1908, a small match against von Bardeleben and drew a match against Fahrni. He drew Duz-Chotimirsky in a match in Moscow, half a year before the altter became a Master in Carslbad 1907. He also drew Tartakower before the latter was a Master.
