|Dec-05-04|| ||narwhal: Awwww...! Chessgames.com has chosen Pavel Smirnov to be the "player of the day." Smirnov, unfortunately, has the distinction of being Teimour Radjbaov's "whipping boy" (although to be sure, you can't use games played at non-classical time controls to prove that)....Awwww...! Chessgames.com ought to be commended for today's choice...=) |
|Dec-05-04|| ||Swindler: I wonder if he is better than Beer ? |
|Dec-05-04|| ||tamar: Maybe not better, but certainly stronger! |
|Dec-05-04|| ||BradMajors: narwhal, your comment made absolutely no sense.
Anyway I remember seeing Smirnov still an IM and over 2600. What is the highest IM rating ever?
|Dec-05-04|| ||narwhal: Of course my comment made total 100% sense. I was just joking about his "lame" performance against Radjabov in the 2004 FIDE WCC. It's like poking fun at Pedro Martinez of the Boston Red Sox (we in the Ukraine are big American baseball fans) for saying that "Curt Schilling is my daddy." |
|Dec-05-04|| ||narwhal: Yes, I mean 100% sense. =) |
|Dec-05-04|| ||BradMajors: how was it lame? 5 draws, one win. "Whipping boy".? |
|Oct-17-05|| ||sitzkrieg: <his "lame" performance > lol|
|Apr-26-06|| ||BIDMONFA: Pavel Smirnov
|Apr-03-09|| ||Dredge Rivers: Why doesn't his brother Yakov have an entry? :)|
|Jun-06-15|| ||Penguincw: Pretend the date on this post is June 4th:
Congrats to 8th seed GM Pavel Smirnov (2588) for remaining one of just 2 players still perfect through 4 rounds of the Mumbai Open. The first 3 rounds were easy, and in R4, he beat 15th seed GM Vitaly Sivuk (2491). Tomorrow, he'll face the other perfect player: 1st seed Dmitry Kokarev (2639) with black.
|Apr-27-20|| ||dumbgai: Today's POTD. I remember Smirnov's upset win over Aronian at the FIDE WCC (which was eventually won by Kasimdzhanov).|
