  Domdaniel: <kingfu> - <Even in old age one must adapt , one must improvise , one must overcome.>

Absolutely. And when you finally get there, in twenty years or so, be sure to check the protocol with Korchnoi.

Aged 79 and he still makes mincemeat of 2700-rated teenagers.

  HeMateMe: Does "spaseba" mean its ok to get spastic? Or, is it some kind of secret code?
Feb-06-11

  Domdaniel: Fiendishly clever, those Russians, talking in secret code.

'Spaseba' is an expression of thanks. Commonly used in the phrase "Spaseba, Masta" when a GM teaches you a lesson.

  Octavia: I heard Ivanchuk go over one of his games. He said: " *** he was better ***he was better *** he made a mistake & I won." Unfortunately I can't remember the actual words or even his opponent, but it was very funny.

& yes, the Elo system is flawed ! Apparently, Mr. Elo warned about it already himself. Look at chessbase to see the follow up.

Feb-06-11  kingfu: spaseba is "thank you" in Russian.
Feb-06-11  acirce: It's "spasibo" (спасибо) rather.
Feb-06-11  kingfu: The Russians have a different letter for everything!

Thanks, acirce.

I guess I need to go back to school!

Feb-06-11  Kinghunt: Does the prize for the best female player go to Melia, who had the most points, or to Nadezhda, who had the highest TPR?
Feb-06-11  Billy Vaughan: <Does the prize for the best female player go to Melia, who had the most points, or to Nadezhda, who had the highest TPR?>

Nana Dzagnidze, who had both.

Feb-07-11  Bratek: http://www.chessbase.com/newsdetail...
Feb-11-11  jussu: спасибі. Not that I speak Ukrainian...
Feb-15-11  yoozum: It's spelled with an O but pronounced with an A, so "spaseba" would be about right.
Feb-15-11  acirce: <yoozum> It's spelled with an о so it's spelled with an o. It's not "Batvinnik", right?
Apr-10-11  M.D. Wilson: Pronounced Bortvannik

Korchnoi is Karchnoi

Apr-10-11  jussu: <Pronounced Bortvannik >

What the heck?

Apr-12-11  M.D. Wilson: Yes, Bought or Bort, not Bot
Apr-14-11  jussu: No. The second letter o in Botvinnik is to be pronounced very much like a in 'car', but it must very short.

By the way, Wikipedia articles often contain prounounciation; so does this: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mikhai...

Apr-24-11  M.D. Wilson: You're wrong. My Russian friend says you're wrong. He'd know.

  alexmagnus: Well, it is kind of a very short short, reduced "a". Reduced, that is. If you simply say "Btvinnik" (with an explosive B, so that some kind of noise between B and T comes) you come closer to the true pronounciation than by either "Bo(r)tvinnik" or "Batvinnik".

  perfidious: <acirce: <yoozum> It's spelled with an so it's spelled with an o. It's not "Batvinnik", right?>

Another one is Boris Gulko, which is pronounced Bah-REES Gul-KO.

Korchnoi is indeed Karch-NOI.

  Eric Schiller: It is quite simple. In Russian /o/ in unstressed position is pronounced /a/ or even reduced to schwa, just part of phonology.
