Oct-21-05  ChessVip: Second! btw what about a KomarovĀ“s chess bio?
Jan-07-06  BIDMONFA: Dimitri Komarov

KOMAROV, Dimitri

Mar-10-09  WhiteRook48: Fourth!
Dec-01-11  wordfunph: Fifth!

missed my source, here's one for GM Dmitry Komarov..

<At the Christmas tournament of 2004/05 in Reggio Emilia, Ukrainian GM Dmitry Komarov, playing an Italian whose rating was significantly lower, obtained a big advantage, but while looking for a forced win he got into time-trouble and his flag fell on the control move. "Do you want a draw?", he asked his opponent, who a few moves previously couldn't have dreamt of such a result. Hesitatingly, the Italian agreed, although by all the laws of ruthless sportsmanship he should have called the arbiter so that Komarov's defeat could be registered.>

happy birthday GM Komarov!


Dec-02-11  bubuli55: I'd settle for sixth!

Like the story. Happy Birthday GM Komarov!

Jun-18-14  waustad: He's hilarious as a commentator.
Jun-18-14  Appaz: Here he is, thanks <waustad>!

He did a great job as a commentator during the World Rapid Championship!

Concentrating on one game, watching the board on the live video worked out great thanks to him. He managed to use the computer as tool without letting it overshadow his GM-understanding: very informative and outspoken - and his courageous English spiced things up further.

Rapid gave just enough time to make sensible comments, but I wonder how this will work out during blitz tomorrow.

  boz: I see above that he beat a young Kramnik as a junior.

  whiteshark: <waustad/Appaz> My thoughts exactly!
Jun-22-14  vector: I thought he did a great job in the blitz as well. A very amusing character.
Jun-22-14  Appaz: Too bad I wasn't able to follow the blitz live. It would have been a perfect opportunity for a couple of days on the couch instead of at work.

The world needs more Russian chess commentators - and their intellectual style: give them a (not too good) English course and put them on the internet!

Jun-22-14  SimonWebbsTiger: whilst possibly true,<Appaz>, I think Dimitri would feel a bit appalled to be called a Russian given he is Ukranian.

It explains why, when Yu had beaten three Russians, he started saying that the Chinese player should join the Ukraninian military!

Jun-22-14  Bureaucrat: What an excellent commentator!
Jun-22-14  Appaz: <SimonWebbsTiger> What a stupid screw up, my sincere apology! Let me desperately try to save parts of my face by correcting to "Russian chess school commentators"... you probably understand my intention, anyway.

<It explains why, when Yu had beaten three Russians, he started saying that the Chinese player should join the Ukraninian military!>

Ha-ha, I missed that one. I seriously consider watching the whole stream of day two of the blitz, as I couldn't watch it live. Mostly because this guy.

Jun-22-14  Absentee: <SimonWebbsTiger: whilst possibly true,<Appaz>, I think Dimitri would feel a bit appalled to be called a Russian given he is Ukranian.>

Komarov is a common russian last name, he's very likely an ethnic russian.

Jun-22-14  Appaz: I realize I'm still on thin ice here, but I wanted to compare him to the style of Shipov, so let's go for "Sovjet-style" :)

You have the technical chess understanding and an ability to put words on both the general principles of a position and concrete variations, but what mostly appeal to me is the humor: dry, sarcastic, intellectual, sometimes morbid - always with an admiration of strong play more than prestige.

Jun-22-14  SimonWebbsTiger: I understand you, <Appaz>.

There's a third chap who has commentated on previous Women's GP events (Tashkent and Khanty-Mansisk). I forget his name, right now. 4 hours of continuous analysis and background information on the players. Rather different to, say, Jan Gustafsson and Lawrence Trent yapping on about films, football, etc.

Jun-22-14  Kazzak: Thanks for a brilliant few days of commenting, Dmitry! Enjoyed it immensely and hope to hear you commenting on chess again, whether classical, rapid or blitz!

  whiteshark: For admirers of his unique radio-like commentating with heavy Rrrussian accent and dry humor, here's a link for hours of priceless chess-entertainment:
Apr-12-15  Xeroxx: King arrested! Now vite vinning cause king cannot play!
Apr-12-15  docbenway: You can have a Komarov helping on Youtube by punching up Dubai Blitz Chess whenever you want it.
Aug-29-15  fgh: More Komarov (if you're interested):
