  offramp: In the heart of the Georgian metropolis Mr Bailey plays the famous pianist.
Apr-10-14  morfishine: As noted by <offramp>, Baile has quite an interesting bio: Baile


Apr-10-14  JohnBoy: Baile must be a big-shot. Only one name, like Sting, Madonna, Prince, ... I wonder if it means something kewl in Georgian.

  perfidious: Discovered all nineteen games played by the mysterious Baile in this event, which is listed as a Soviet title semifinal.

The tournament was won by Taimanov with an undefeated 16.5, followed by Aronin at a respectful distance on 14. Baile scored +3-10=6 for equal 17th.

  TheTamale: <JohnBoy: "Baile must be a big-shot. Only one name, like Sting, Madonna, Prince...">

And he only played opponents whose last names ended in "ov." What a man of intrigue.

Apr-10-14  Kindzero: C'mon guys, you know very well that "Baile" is just a made up figure. It's all soviet propaganda. Get with it.

"Baile" means 'town' in Gaelic. For what it's worth.

It's pronounced 'boll-yeh'.

Apr-10-14  morfishine: <Domdaniel> "Downtown"

  thegoodanarchist: Marky Mark starts out playing to equalize, which he does. Then he aggressively capitalizes on White's sub-optimal play and finishes sharply to garner the full point. Well done!
Apr-10-14  RookFile: White's play was interesting and pretty good, aside from treating the light squared bishop like it was a yo-yo.
