Aug-13-09  tibone: according to the sjakkfantomet 17...Nd5, 20.Kb1 and 28...Rd2 were mistakes
Aug-13-09  tibone: btw Vadim Malakhatko is not Vladimir Malakhov!
Aug-13-09  timhortons: before Vadim Malakhatko go to norway to play, he played here at quebec chess championship, id seen this guy in person,he is accompanied by his wife woman GM zosulia.
Aug-13-09  timhortons: i remember running this game with rybka and if im right gm malakhatko miss the proper move to equalize the position.

somebody must be a victim of a prodigy..well thats life.

here like a borrowed donkey he got beatin up.

Aug-13-09  tibone: heĀ“s now playing in zuerich, switzerland. doesnt seem to have too many rest days in the these days.
Aug-13-09  timhortons: <tibone> do you have more info about him? i heard he play poker too.
Aug-13-09  tibone: no iĀ“m sorry. I donĀ“t know if he plays poker. but if so iĀ“m sure heĀ“s earning more money with it than with chess (if he plays it seriously). even if he might not be as good in poker as he is in chess.
Aug-13-09  tibone: <timhortons: i remember running this game with rybka and if im right gm malakhatko miss the proper move to equalize the position.> do you remember which this move was? because i canĀ“t find any move that equalizes. this Nf1 idea seems to be very strong. Igor Stohl for example lost quickly against it after 14.Nf1 c5 15.g4 cxd4 16.g5 hxg5 17.Bxg5 Qa5 18.Kb1 e5 19.Ng3 Rfe8 20.Nf5 Bf8 21.Rdg1 Kh8 22.N3h4 Qd5 23.Ng6+ fxg6 24. hxg6+ Kg8 25.Rh3 and he resigned 5 moves later
Aug-14-09  timhortons: <tibone> if i had time ill go over it again.
Aug-29-09  Knight13: Black basically spent all his time preventing White penetration on the kingside that he couldn't hold on to his queenside pawns. Must've missed 15. g4.
