Jul-26-11  bharatiy: Sasi messed up, I guess.
Jul-26-11  ARMENIA: Ladies and Gentleman please rise and remove your caps:

1. Armenia

2. China

3. Ukraine

Jul-26-11  bharatiy: nice win by Sasi
Jul-26-11  Nietzowitsch: Was erlauben Svidler?
Jul-26-11  supertimchan: This is very and very disappointing results for Russia. Without Kramnik, the whole team just collapsed. How could they lose to India without Anand...
Jul-26-11  nolanryan: nice comeback China! Hopefully China will continue to generate talented players.

Way to go Seirawan, who first got me excited about chess through his Winning... series

Jul-26-11  s4life: China lost the gold against.. Israel?? it was a great comeback nonetheless... oh yeah congrats to the armenian team.
Jul-26-11  adair10: Congrats to Armenia for taking gold! Amazing achievement for this small contry
Jul-27-11  fgh: Why hasn't ChessBase still published a report on the last two rounds?
Jul-27-11  polarmis: Some Russian reaction (from the team captain) to the event:

In general there are/will be various "post-mortem" news stories at WhyChess in the coming days.

Jul-27-11  bronkenstein: Check the smile :

Jul-27-11  khursh: <fgh: Why hasn't ChessBase still published a report on the last two rounds?>

Before i was reading chessbase almost everyday. However now their coverage became unbelievably poor and biased. They have several 'favorites' and their coverage is very skewed towards them. There is a case when they reported gold medalist, bronze medalist and #s 4,5,6,7 and forgot to mention about who was the silver medalist.

Jul-27-11  dahtah: wow kamsky finally enters top ten on live ratings,toppling nakamura as u.s #1 player,congrats!
Jul-28-11  supertimchan: <<khursh>> Now you realise that? Chessbase has been always very biased for many years. But we can't blame them, their business is to make money and maxmismise their financial returns. For example, they haven't reported anything about Rybka's ban which would affect their sales. Try chessdom or chessvibes for neutral news.
Jul-31-11  ahmadov: <Hovik2009: Long Live Armenia, we are the CHAMPIONS!!

Azeris, you could start eating your heart now!>

<arsen: think they'll again say that we've won with the help of Russia, or maybe even Russian team was playing instead of us :)>

It is sad to read these types of posts... First: When Azerbaijan won the European chapionship, not a single Azeri said something stupid like this;

second: remember when in the middle of this championship I was wishing success to the Armenian team not to create any rivalry or enmity on this forum...

So behave properly when your team wins or loses...

Jul-31-11  bronkenstein: +1 ahmadov.
Jul-31-11  Mkhitar: Congrats Armenia. We are the best. I do not blame any armenian for not holding themselves to say anything against azeris-do not forget how painful was the war between them 15 years ago. But this is chess. This is peas game. May war be only on chessboard!
Jul-31-11  ahmadov: <Mkhitar: I do not blame any armenian for not holding themselves to say anything against azeris-do not forget how painful was the war between them 15 years ago.> This is stupid... The war is behind, the only pain is the fact that Armenia, with the support of Russia, continues to hold 20% of internationally recognized territories of Azerbaijan under occupation and about 700,000 Azeris displaced from their homes...
Jul-31-11  jamesmaskell: Its amazing that on a website thats supposed to be about chess, a large proportion of the debate is not about chess but about international politics. Israel-Palestinian and Armenian-Azeri debates particularly prominent.
Jul-31-11  Mkhitar: ahmadov, I just want to be kind. These 20% "internationally recognized territorises" were forcefully joined to Azerbaijan in early Soviet times, and always were armenian-inhabited. These armenians were fighting for teir lives. You know why only 300 000 armenians displaced from their homes from Baku? because the other half was killed in Sumgait. If the war is behind, just do not talk about it and mislead people that never heard about this war.
Jul-31-11  Mkhitar: OK no more world. Viva Kaissa!:)
Jul-31-11  ahmadov: <These 20% "internationally recognized territorises" were forcefully joined to Azerbaijan in early Soviet times, and always were armenian-inhabited.>

<You know why only 300 000 armenians displaced from their homes from Baku? because the other half was killed in Sumgait.>

These are pure Armenian lies... Check the Internet for the truth...

Jul-31-11  ahmadov: Well, I also stop it here for the sake of other users and the admin...
Aug-06-11  wordfunph: Russian Team Coach Evgeny Bareev resigned citing the bad result at the World Team Championship..
