May-16-14  Conrad93: Also, Silman is apparently into new age religions.

That is something I would rather not have known.

May-16-14  SimonWebbsTiger: Bologan's book on the Chebanenko Slav (1. d4 d5 2. c4 c6 3. Nc3 Nf6 4. Nf3 a6) is as fine an opening book as one will find. A testiment to his late trainer -- the creative Chebanenko - and the complexity of this topical variation.
May-16-14  Conrad93: Check out the game between Morozevich and Saric.

What a bizzarre endgame.

Three isolated pawns and a rook vs. a rook and a single pawn on the kingside.

Yet there is still no obvious win!

May-16-14  Conrad93: Didn't Bologan also write a book on the Catalan opening?
May-16-14  geeker: I enjoyed Bologan's "Selected Games 1985-2004" book, and recommend it.
May-16-14  Shams: Bologan finally on the board with a sparkling win against Eljanov.

  HeMateMe: Shirov with 5 draws, no wins and no losses? Bizaaro World...
Premium Chessgames Member
  perfidious: <Conrad: Silman's isn't a very strong a player, and his success in tournaments is about average....>

There is an inherent contradiction in this statement.

May-17-14  waustad: <cro777>Congratulations on another very strong local player, if I'm reading your handle correctly. Kozul, Stevic and Jovanovic all play in the Austrian league for Wolfsberg, but he probably has bigger fish to fry at this stage of his career. I wish him well.
May-17-14  Conrad93: No, not really perfidious.
Premium Chessgames Member
  HeMateMe: What's Silman's highest rating? 2400? That's not too shabby.
Premium Chessgames Member
  perfidious: <HMM> I debated over whether to bother responding to that foolish comment by <Conrad>, but decided it should not be allowed to stand unchallenged.
Premium Chessgames Member
  HeMateMe: Silman actually played Smyslov at Lone Pine.
May-17-14  positionalgenius: This Ivan Saric may be one to watch out for.
May-17-14  Hercules Unchained: I think it is time for Morozevich:Move by move book seriously

  plang: <geeker: I enjoyed Bologan's "Selected Games 1985-2004" book, and recommend it.>

I like this book as well - he plays interesting chess

May-18-14  Conrad93: Silman hasn't played in years.
And his rating has nothing to do with strength. I have seen his games before.

He's about average for a player.

May-18-14  1d410: Bologan must have seen my comment and started winning to sell his books :P
Premium Chessgames Member
  FearNoEvil: How are you doing Alan? Really long time, no see. What have you been up to? Joel
May-18-14  The Last Straw: Bologan is a genius.
May-19-14  paavoh: Shirov netted his first win today, Eljanov is soon winning the game between the bottom-dwellers.
May-19-14  The Rocket: <Bologan is a genius>


Premium Chessgames Member
  JointheArmy: Bologan's only game that wasn't decisive was against Drawcrot.
May-20-14  paavoh: Congrats to Morozevich, good to see him improving again!
Aug-14-14  Mr. V: Where is Rublevsky these days? He's always a nice middle of the field player.
