|Dec-05-14|| ||Garech: Lol Annie, great one!!
Sure, he was right in some respects, a little over-aggressive though. He could have turned his ego down a little instead. Still, he has spoken immortal words now - they will never be forgotten!
|Dec-05-14|| ||Annie K.: It's a great meme - if only the general populace were not so terrified of all things chess, it should have gone super-viral!|
Well, he probably wasn't in a great mood at the time ;) - but in his area, polite behavior in chess is taken very seriously, so such a strong reaction to bad manners is not surprising in any case.
It should also be noted, btw, that this sentence construction is perfectly legitimate in many other languages, if not in English. :)
|Jan-16-15|| ||Jim Bartle: Daniel King: "If you're playing a game of chicken with Jobava with two cars are racing toward each other, you know Jobava is going to throw the steering wheel out the window. He's never going to back down."|
|Feb-20-15|| ||kummatmebro: Naa, Giri needs to be punched in the face a couple times. |
Reminds me exactly of those cocky little 11 year olds who are NMs thinking they are a gift to the world when they probably will never play in the US CHampionship.
|Feb-27-15|| ||Penguincw: Congrats to Jobava for bouncing back in FIDE Grand Prix Tbilisi (2015) with a much better tournament. He finished with 5/11 (+3,-4,=4), recording the 2nd most wins and fewest draws, but also most losses. Despite all that, he gained 3 rating points.|
He may have started 0.5/4, but then <conceded> 0.5/4.
|Apr-25-15|| ||DiscoJew: I heard he is a struggling alcoholic. Anyone know if there is some truth to that? If I'm wrong I don't mean to be spreading rumours. Many great people were are are alcoholics at any rate, and Baadur is clearly an extremely gifted player. He does seem to have good and bad streaks though, and I wonder if this is part of the reason for sometimes lacklustre performance? If he did improve on his sobriety with say AA attendance, maybe he could be world champion. He has the talent lots of people think so. Good luck brother!|
|May-02-15|| ||Penguincw: Welcome back to the 2700 club Baadur Jobava! Yesterday, he beat Zvjaginsev with white in R1 of the Russian League to bump his rating up to 2703.5, which is currently 44th in the world.|
Today, he has Timofeev with black, but not to worry: a draw (at least) will maintain his rating above 2700.
|May-13-15|| ||Tiggler: Is Badder Joe Bovver his real name, or just the name on his gangsta rap sheet?|
|May-13-15|| ||schweigzwang: He ain't Bovver.|
|May-13-15|| ||Tiggler: <schweigzwang> He's yo' bruvva?|
|Aug-13-15|| ||sonia91: Jobava won 19th Hogeschool Zeeland Open in Vlissingen, Netherlands: http://chess-results.com/tnr178650....

|Nov-05-15|| ||Pulo y Gata: Great interview, 2nd of two parts: http://en.chessbase.com/post/living...|
|Nov-05-15|| ||Pulo y Gata: THIS:
<SS: What is your message to all the youngsters and chess lovers out there?
BJ: Chess wise I would say donít use computers, use your brain! On a general note my advice would be that in the race to be more successful we tend to forget what is more important in life Ė human relations. Thatís why life has become so fast. Itís like a race, some sort of global hypnotization. We should slow down and understand that loving each other is the right way to live life.>
|Nov-05-15|| ||bien pensant: He should be friends with the banmaster So.|
|Jul-07-16|| ||posoo: ooooo NICE PIC of Mr. Jobuva! Very hansom. Why dos chesgames not say if he is maried? Is he gay or just weird???|
|Jul-07-16|| ||Mr. V: <posoo> I think he might be married, but I'm with you on this one. He is attractive indeed|
|Aug-17-16|| ||technical draw: His pic reminds me of Edward Scissorhands for some reason.|
|Sep-13-16|| ||Conrad93: He just gained 33 points in the Olympiad.|
|Sep-13-16|| ||Birthday Boy: Just 2 points short from 2700.|
|Sep-13-16|| ||Conrad93: " Board one gold medal went to Baadur Jobava..."|
|Sep-13-16|| ||schweigzwang: Oh the ironic.
Seriously though, Well done GM Jobava--your style entertains.
|Sep-20-16|| ||Conrad93: Baadur Late Than Never...
Am I right?
|Sep-20-16|| ||hashtag: What's_his_secret?|
