|Mar-23-11|| ||HeMateMe: Are you saying Taimonov could "tickle the ovaries"?|
|Jul-13-11|| ||Shams: <HeMateMe> God, that's terrible and I wish I'd said it.|
|Jul-19-11|| ||ozmikey: <HeMateMe> My God, I would be utterly ashamed of a pun like that...which wouldn't prevent me from saying it. ;-)|
|Jul-19-11|| ||tamar: Or you could say he had Taimanov for Love|
|Jul-20-11|| ||HeMateMe: Must be some sort of record. Only Tony Randell fathered a kid later in life, and he was already dead at the time.|
|Aug-03-11|| ||rapidcitychess: <At least I still have my music>|
I wonder if he wrote some blues afterwards.
|Feb-07-12|| ||Penguincw: Happy 86th birthday GM Taimanov! Hopefully, if you were to play Fischer again (impossible), you won't be crushed 6-0. :)|
|Feb-07-12|| ||TheFocus: I just bought <Taimanov's Selected Games> last week.|
Good book with some deep annotations.
|Feb-07-12|| ||parisattack: Its a 'sleeper' for sure <TheFocus>. I have a Russian book on Taimanov with a picture of him playing the piano, Smyslov with one hand on the piano apparently singing. The caption 'Bareton' (Russian = Baritone. I tried to paste it here but no luck.)|
Boleslavsky's games edited by Adams in English in the same category.
|Jun-02-12|| ||stanleys: Taimanov took part in a film as a child - a picture: http://chesspro.ru/guestnew/upload/...|
|Jun-08-12|| ||Cemoblanca: <stanleys> He looks like the little 'Sascha' Luzhin in "The Luzhin Defence"!! ;0) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=36vw... @ 05:30!!|
|Jun-11-12|| ||piroflip: Thankfully the pressure was off him a little after Fischer crushed Larsen.|
|Jul-30-12|| ||vonKrolock: Taimanov and the <Russian Nobel Prize> - (named after Ludwig <or Ludvig ?!> Nobel) ... <"elder brother of Alfred. The difference between the premiums of approximately the same as that between «Volvo» and «Lada-Kalina". The Swedes give $ 1 million, we have - one million rubles. "> (NOTE: There's a medal too) ... <"Following his death in 1888, a special prize was established in his honor in Russia."> NOTE: With funds bequeathed by himself <" It was forgotten in 1917 but has been reborn in recent years. Laureates of the prize include the first women in space Valentina Tereshkova, Chess Grandmaster Mark Taimanov, Academician Sergei Kapitsa, artist Mikhail Shemyakin and others."> ... 2010 <"This year's winners were the historian Edvard Radzinsky, the choreographer Vladimir Vasiliev and Grandmaster Mark Taimanov.
Banquet, jubilee awards, held in the capital's legendary restaurant "Yar"">|
... and a fifteen minutes video:
2:30 Taimanov appears ; 3:08 Excepts from a 1936 Soviet film - Taimanov acted as a young violinist, playing u.o. Beethoven's Concerto <!> ; 4:52 passim Sister Irina also interviewed (and a brief appearance of his brother Roald) ; 7:00 Chess in the USSR etc ; 10:18 The piano player and his duo with Liubov Bruk ; !0:57 Back to Chess, the Fischer match etc
|Feb-07-13|| ||talisman: happy birthday to one of the greats.|
|Feb-17-13|| ||Jafar219: <talisman: happy birthday to one of the greats.>|
The man who lost 0-6 can`t be called one of the greatest.
|Feb-18-13|| ||FSR: <Jafar219> Don't be mean. Fischer made all of his opponents look weak; he went 6-0 against Larsen too, which no one imagined was possible. Taimanov has won games against Botvinnik (twice), Smyslov (thrice), Tal (thrice), Petrosian (four times), Spassky (thrice), and Karpov. Not too shabby.|
|Feb-07-14|| ||Eastfrisian: Currently one of the oldest, perhaps "the oldest" living GM. Happy Birthday GM Taimanov.|
|Feb-07-14|| ||alexmagnus: <Eastfrisian> Taimanov is the third oldest living GM - behind Averbakh and Zemgalis.|
|Feb-07-14|| ||Eduardo Bermudez: http://www.ajedrezpinal.com/2014/02...|
|Feb-07-14|| ||offramp: <FSR: <Jafar219> ...Fischer went 6-0 against Larsen...>|
Where did Fischer went?
|Feb-07-14|| ||perfidious: The one who knows ain't tellin'!|
|Feb-07-14|| ||ketchuplover: I'm sure Mark thinks Robert was one of the grates :)|
|Feb-07-14|| ||CountryGirl: Happy birthday, Mark Yevgenyevich! I love loads of your games, especially your original and creative Nimzoindians.|
|Feb-07-14|| ||Penguincw: Happy 88th birthday to GM Mark Taimanov. Hope he's still well.|
< ...he never devoted himself fully to chess, splitting his time and talents between the game and his career as a concert pianist. >
He's already a good player, so imagine how well he'd be if he was a full-time chess player.
