It's because you're learning :)
|Jan-03-09|| ||martin moller: ahmadov : Belated Happy new year.|
|Jan-05-09|| ||ahmadov: <martin moller: ahmadov : Belated Happy new year.> Thanks! The same to you!|
By the way, I have sent you a message about the poster... Let me know if you are happy with the translation...
|Jan-05-09|| ||martin moller: Hi ahmadov Yes thank you very much, only i thought it had something to do with chess :-) btw i´m working on a homepage about the Danish chess history 1830-1930 www.skakjournal.dk i will be extremely happy if you leave a note in my guestbook.
|Jan-06-09|| ||ahmadov: <martin moller> I will definitely visit it and leave a message.|
|Jan-06-09|| ||ahmadov: <martin moller><Yes thank you very much, only i thought it had something to do with chess :-)> That surprised me as well, but then I thought maybe the comedy had...|
|Jan-06-09|| ||nimh: <I wish I also could create such a web site about the history of chess in my country, even though it is not as old and rich as the one in your country... >|
Who was the first notable azeri chessplayer? Since when does the history of Azeri chess begin?
|Jan-07-09|| ||ahmadov: <nimh> In that post, I meant chess people play nowadays. I do not think that this type of chess in Azerbaijan was as popular as in Denmark. However, as can be from http://www.azerichess.az/, which is in Russian, people knew about chess in this country in as back as VI century. A Soviet researcher, A. Linder, says that chess came to aincent Russia from Azerbaijan in VIII-IX century. There are documents which say one called Haji Ali Tabrizi used to play blindfold chess with four players simultanously.
Just one important note: When we speak about Azerbaijan's history, this also includes Southern Azerbaijan, which is part of Iran today.|
As for chess played today, I think the most known prominent players before Kasparov were Makagonov, Bagirov and Magerramov, even though the web site I mentioned includes some more names. Kasparov was a milestone in the history of chess in Azerbaijan. Now we have the young generation we are proud of, and you know the names of many of them.

Ask <Switch> if he agrees with that... :-)
|Jan-07-09|| ||nimh: <ahmadov>
thanks for information
<<nimh> <Who was the first notable azeri chessplayer?>
Actually I meant the ability to push wood on chessboard :)
|Jan-07-09|| ||martin moller: Hi Zahir I have realized long ago that i would never be a very good chessplayer - allthough i like the game very much - but researching Danish chess history will eventually give me some sort of fame, since there are very few in Denmark doing what i do.My plan is to publish a little book in say 5 years - in english !|
|Jan-08-09|| ||ahmadov: <martin moller> Great idea! I wish you good luck in your plans!|
|Jan-08-09|| ||rogge: <ahmadov: <rogge: <ahmadov>, Everything must be put on the table, and both sides must change their positions in order to reach a lasting agreement. I'm not talking about the current crisis.> Yeah, I have heard much about these mutual compromises... This mostly means forcing the Palestinians accepting loss of their lands... This is exactly what happens in this corner of the world... Our 20 per cent of lands are under Armenian occupation, and the international community tells us that we should not fight but make so-called mutual compromises, which means resign ourselves to losing our lands...>|
That's sad and depressing. It's good then, that we have places like CG.com, where chessfriends can meet and talk across any borders.
Have a nice day.
|Jan-08-09|| ||ahmadov: <rogge> Thanks for dropping by! |
|Jan-08-09|| ||brankat: <ahmadov> We are all still eagerly awaiting the "Kenya Report"!|
Have the issues of the Social work been resolved? Economic prob;ems settled? Have You played in any Kenyan chess tournaments? The women? Any interesting photos? :-)
|Jan-08-09|| ||ahmadov: <brankat: <ahmadov> We are all still eagerly awaiting the "Kenya Report"!> My company is doing the same ;-)|
|Jan-08-09|| ||ahmadov: <brankat><Any interesting photos? :-)> There are some photos on my facebook page... If you are on facebook, we can become friends there as well...|
|Jan-08-09|| ||brankat: <ahmadov> I have heard of the "facebook>, but, frankly, I don't even know what it is :-) Yet another unnecessary Internet gadget?|
|Jan-09-09|| ||ahmadov: <brankat <ahmadov> I have heard of the "facebook", but, frankly, I don't even know what it is :-) Yet another unnecessary Internet gadget?> No, not actually. It is worth using...|
|Jan-09-09|| ||brankat: Like I said before, I can't use it because I don't know what it is :-)|
|Jan-09-09|| ||ahmadov: <brankat: Like I said before, I can't use it because I don't know what it is :-)> It is a good networking web site. You can share videos, pictures and various links with your friends there. Become a member and you will find more interesting features. I myself knew about it after I joined and explored it, otherwise I lack those talents characteristic to our friend <Switch>, who knows everything even before trying them :-)|
|Jan-09-09|| ||brankat: <ahmadov> Yes, all those things come to Switch quite naturally :-)|
Btw, there seems to be a sign of life, after a long while, at Rich-ionist forum :-)
|Jan-09-09|| ||fich: <ahmadov>
Good evening. We are currently playing in QA.com. We played this weird Sicilian line :
1. e4 e6 2. Nf3 c5 3. d4 cxd4 4. Nxd4 a6 5. Nc3 Nc6 6. Nxc6 dxc6 7. Qxd8+ Kxd8.
I just dropped by as promised. :)
