|Feb-08-10|| ||ConLaMismaMano: <Curiosly, ICC has been very important in nakamura, iturrizaga, kovalyov carreers.> That was not exactly the key factor in Kovalyov's development. Ever since his talent was discovered GM Ricardi became his coach until he became a GM.|
Of course internet chess helpped a lot, even GM Flores in one occasion said: "This boy plays like a computer!"
|Feb-08-10|| ||ConLaMismaMano: This quote was after a game they played against eachther for the Argentine Championship.|
|Feb-08-10|| ||veigaman: <ConLaMismamano> We dont have to forget alexander ramirez from costa rica who is studying in the University in USA, he is still young and we dont have to rule out a comeback to the chess scene.|
Agree with all the name that you have mentioned.
It is a pitty that our countries are not able to sponsor young players and even worse it is to see that our chess federation are not able to organise an south amreican tour
|Feb-08-10|| ||ConLaMismaMano: <We dont have to forget alexander ramirez from costa rica who is studying in the University in USA, he is still young and we dont have to rule out a comeback to the chess scene.> Ramirez is/was extremely talented, i hope he makes a comeback but it will be difficult after years of inactivity. By the way, another young GM comes to mind; mexican Leon Hoyos who works with Ivanchuk.|
<It is a pitty that our countries are not able to sponsor young players and even worse it is to see that our chess federation are not able to organise an south amreican tour> That would be ideal. Brazil as the leading country in South America is giving an example, hope the rest of the countries follow it.

thats it, i hope time will come that each country will have solid support on their promising chess player.
ok, kovalyov is in canada now but that dont spell he got state sponsored chess training, remember, nakamura who is a citezen of the richest nation on earth dont even have a strong chess sponsor..
i just doubt it if kovalyov got sponsors, one thing good in canada is we also got big tournaments and he could still get the exposure he want.
i often see anton and his dad in tournaments here in canada.
at icc when anton is kibitzing i sometimes tell him getting a degree in a university spell better future.
|Feb-08-10|| ||ConLaMismaMano: <i just doubt it if kovalyov got sponsors, one thing good in canada is we also got big tournaments and he could still get the exposure he want.>|
That's exactly it, big tournaments; something we don't have in South America. I'm convinced Anton will have the attention he deserves thanks to these strong tourneys.
Are you aware if Kovalyov is planing to acquire canadian citizenship? And if so, will he represent Canada or stick to Argentina?
|Feb-08-10|| ||timhortons: <Are you aware if Kovalyov is planing to acquire canadian citizenship? And if so, will he represent Canada or stick to Argentina?>|
i dont have any personal ties with anton, except for some few hi! and hellos when we bump each other in tournament hall, i know the reason why he was still attch to argentinian chess federation is that it takes few grands to transfer federation and maybe he dont want to waste his money on these.
many canadian immigrant who got chess master titles are still attach to their motherland chess federation, i know one from russia and another from spain, as IM day said fide purposely put high price value on changing federation to avoid rich country buying off GM's services.
|Feb-08-10|| ||ConLaMismaMano: The closest thing Argentina has to a big tournament is the continental championship which was played twice there. The reason lays on the fact that the average rating of the nation is probably the highest among all the countries of America except, of course, the US.|
Another reason (and a very important one): it's simply a cheap country for foreigners.
Only Cuba can compete with Argentina but, as it's well known, US citizens can't travel there.
|Feb-08-10|| ||veigaman: <ConLaMismaMano> I´m convinced that South America is a diamond in terms of potential to exploit. Moreover, I´m convinced that South American players have more intuition and tricky resource, it means "potrero" than europeans but we lack of sopnsor and competitions.|
Leon Hoyos a great talent as well, like emilio cordova as well. We have a young player calld remo bassan very talented as well but we will see....
With all this said Capablanca achievements are incredible, a latin tropical player , you understand me , reaching the world title.
|Feb-08-10|| ||ConLaMismaMano: <Leon Hoyos a great talent as well, like emilio cordova as well. We have a young player calld remo bassan very talented as well but we will see....>|
I don't know what happened with Cordova, 5 years ago there was a lot of hype around him but all of a sudden things didn't work out as expected. Ok, he is a GM but the "metheoric" rise never ocurred, instead he earned his title rather slowly.
calld remo bassan, never heard of him but hoppefully he'll do ok. In Argentina there is Federico Perez Ponsa born 1993 and if i'm not mistaken needs one more norm to become Argentina's youngest GM ever. And in the other hand there is GM Sandro Mareco that in GM Ricardi's (5 times national champion, one of the best in the 90') opinion he actually may become the best argentine master of the moment. He believes Sandro has more talent than Perez Ponsa and Lemos, so like you said, let´s see...
<With all this said Capablanca achievements are incredible, a latin tropical player , you understand me , reaching the world title.> Of course, for most chess enthiuasts and masters he is a must in the top 5 list of greastes players of history of the game.
Don't forget about Mecking, when he appeared in the scene he was nicked as the "new Fischer". There's also Oscar Panno, 1953 world junior champion; left chess to become an engineer.
|Feb-08-10|| ||ConLaMismaMano: Supposedly Ricardi was shocked with Mareco's talent and incredible tactical vision. He together with Perez Ponsa and Lemos are the natural replacements (in the short term future) of the "older generation" composed by Felgaer, Peralta, Flores and Lafuente.|
But Lemos has to be ruled out since he's going to represent Spain from now on, so we can hope Kovalyov wil stick to Argentina which is not very likely. Mareco has to travel to europe and participate in as much tournaments as possible to prove his potential. The same with Perez Ponsa.
But as i said before; Cori Tello, Iturrizaga and now Mareco are potentially the strongest candidates to join the elite.
|Feb-09-10|| ||veigaman: <ConLaMismaMano> Thanks for posting infromation on Mareco, I love following young talents specially when they come from south america, i will pay attention to him.|
Cordova was a great talent but somewhere in the way to find his place he lost his mind, actually, i have read that he run away from peru to brazil to live with a much older woman than him, what a pitty but he is still young. By contrast, his countryman Cori seems to have a more serious chess approach. About remo bassan, he is 15 without any GM norms but he has played some good games in internationl junior competition but i feel that he is special but we will see if he decide to play chess more often.
|Feb-09-10|| ||veigaman: By the way, iturrigzaga finished moscow open with 4 1/2 points in a bit disappointment perfomance, however, he played in russia which it is good for him. Now, he is taking part in aeroflot open and he lost badly today, let see if he can recovery to face big boys like kamsky and bacrot to get experience.|
|Feb-09-10|| ||veigaman: <ConLaMismaMano> by the way, have you found out any information on gaston needleman? this guy seems to have an specila touch to play|
|Feb-10-10|| ||veigaman: Eduardo iturrizaga won a nice game, he has an strange ability to play creative and orginal pawn endgames|
