|Oct-26-19|| ||moronovich: <is the variety of openings we are treated to.>|
# Me too !
|Oct-26-19|| ||rokko: You can also discover Anish Giri the attacking player.|
And, by the way, it is Batumi not Bitumi (@CG).
|Oct-29-19|| ||PhilFeeley: I see England's not doing as well as they should. 2nd and 3rd boards are underperforming.|
|Oct-29-19|| ||Dionysius1: Not horribly so, I wouldn't say http://chess-results.com/tnr434677....|
|Oct-29-19|| ||Dionysius1: Although if I'm reading http://chess-results.com/tnr434677.... right, England started 2nd seed and after 5 rounds are lying 7th so hummm.|
|Oct-29-19|| ||paavoh: Next round Ukraine vs Russia, both at 9 points so far.|
|Oct-31-19|| ||PhilFeeley: England back where they should be, just 2 points behind Russia.|
|Oct-31-19|| ||paavoh: Fine finish in Dubov-Svane. Could be a puzzle at move 36 or a bit earlier?|
|Oct-31-19|| ||Messiah: Dubov - Svane was an extremely interesting game.|
|Oct-31-19|| ||PhilFeeley: Nice to see Germany doing well.
These guys are all over the place, changing teams. Liviu Dieter Nisipeanu is from Romania, now playing for Germany. He got the important win against Vitiugov last round, a good game.
|Oct-31-19|| ||Dionysius1: England's great 2.5 - 1.5 win against Armenia brings them to 3rd place after 7 rounds and within 1 point of leaders, Russia.|
|Oct-31-19|| ||saffuna: That was one traveling king in Dubov-Svane. Chased from g8 to getting mated on a3.|
|Nov-02-19|| ||botvinnik64: Did Russia double Gold here? I know in the Open section they won with Ukraine second; was that the same fate in the Women's section? (The Muzycuk sisters didn't play, I guess.)|
|Nov-02-19|| ||alexmagnus: Open: 1. Russia 2. Ukraine 3. England
Women: 1. Russia 2. Georgia 3. Azerbaijan
|Nov-03-19|| ||PhilFeeley: Good to see England rebound to 3rd. Also, nice to see Ukraine in 2nd.|
|Nov-04-19|| ||bishopone: Ukraine get silver medal, without Ponomariov, Eljanov or Korobov. How impresive! Chucky is from other planet. Congrats, Ukraine!|
|Nov-04-19|| ||Messiah: In Hungary there is a scandal regarding the result, Almasi and Erdos are debating publicly, in a rather uncultured way, on Facebook.|
|Nov-04-19|| ||Annie K.: <Messiah> oh? Sounds interesting. Link please? :)|
|Nov-05-19|| ||Messiah: <Annie K.>
GM Almasi has a gigantic meltdown:
https://www.facebook.com/permalink.... (this one is more or less cultured)
Upon request I am ready to help figuring out anything you can't understand by using online translators. Sometimes Hungarian is very difficult for the AI.
|Nov-05-19|| ||Annie K.: <Messiah> thanks! :)
Hungarian is my first language, so I expect I will manage ok. ;)|
So far I've discovered one interesting tidbit: Leko is Vincent Keymer's trainer these days.
|Nov-05-19|| ||Annie K.: OK, that was entertaining. :) Almasi seems to have been slightly unaware of just how public Facebook is - but I expect everything he said was probably correct. |
He belongs to an earlier generation than Erdos, with a stronger work ethic and team spirit, and that shows in his value judgments.
There's apparently also some tension related to the management of the Hungarian Chess Federation, that they were not mentioning. Oh well, better luck next time!
|Nov-06-19|| ||siggemannen: Looked like the first board just didn't perform. Why wasn't Rapport on the Hungarian team?|
|Nov-06-19|| ||WorstPlayerEver: <siggemannen>
Because Rapport is having a classical break since July (Dortmund Sparkassen 2019).
|Nov-06-19|| ||Messiah: <Annie K.>
It is surprising for me how tragic is the current situation. I don't follow Hungarian chess too closely, in this year my (almost) only relation to it was having some beers specifically with GM Erdos. I met him the very first time ever, by chance, and he was a really nice guy: we had a little chit-chat about Keymer and Leko, about the then-recently concluded V Erdos vs V Keymer, 2019 draw, and about the upcoming Isle of Man tourney.
Without any commitment taken, let me say 'nem zörög a haraszt, ha nem fújja a szél'. I really don't know what happened... maybe every words of Almasi are true, maybe he simply had a blind rage.
<siggemannen and WorstPlayerEver>
in the past 1 or 2 decades Hungarian top players systematically refused to play in team-based events, without public explanation. The management is questionable, and Hungary's Soviet-like government's tentacles are already embedded in it. It is not really surprising that everything began to rot in a country like this, it is just sad that not even chess can survive in a post-commie inferno, called Absurdistan.
|Nov-06-19|| ||Annie K.: <Messiah> thanks for the personal anecdote. :) |
Hmm, yes, I don't believe Almasi would have dared to make such sharp allegations about Erdos if he weren't certain of ample backup. At the same time, it's clear that these two also have a long-standing personal animosity issue going, what with Almasi calling Erdos "the most insolent player he ever worked with" (presumably as the former team captain), and no doubt the resentment anyone would feel against a person who fills his place when he stays away from an event as a means of protest (think strikebreakers) doesn't help either.
It's a complex situation with tempers running high. Let's hope they'll find a resolution eventually.
