[what is this?]
|International Master. In March 2011, the Disciplinary Committee of the French Chess Federation suspended GMs Sebastien Feller and Arnaud Hauchard, and Marzolo, finding them "guilty of a violation of sporting ethics" for allegedly cheating during the Chess Olympiad 2010 in Khanty-Mansiysk.
http://en.chessbase.com/post/french... The Executive Committee of FIDE later "confirmed" the validity of that suspension, and itself imposed an 18-month exclusion from FIDE events, with the last nine months of that period suspended. http://www.fide.com/images/stories/...|

|Apr-17-09|| ||YoungEd: This guy has the greatest first name EVER!!!|
|Oct-14-10|| ||GrahamClayton: Photo: http://www.medchess.org/gallery/5th...|
|Mar-21-11|| ||YoungEd: Great name or not, this guy was suspended by the French Chess Federation for cheating in an Olympiad: http://www.chessbase.com/newsdetail...|
Oh, Cyril! Oh, Humanity!
|Mar-21-11|| ||TheTamale: <YoungEd>: Doesn't really surprise me... wasn't the saint he's named after the one who slaughtered all those Armenians? The name is derived from "krill," which is a lower-level crustacean. They kill them in Norway for sport. Not all Cyrils are degenerate, however; Cyrille Diabate is currently having a decent run in the UFC.|
|Mar-22-11|| ||BIDMONFA: Cyril Marzolo|
|Mar-22-11|| ||YoungEd: Dear <TheTamale>: I once again bow to your superior historianship and etymological mastery. Keep on truckin' that informative truck, Tamale!|
|Jun-01-14|| ||Domdaniel: Wasn't it a Christian fanatic named 'Saint' Cyril who murdered Hypatia, the great Alexandrian mathematician? She was scraped to death with oyster shells. Not the act of a gentleman, as Voltaire observed.|
Whatever his crimes, M. Marzolo is scarcely the worst of all possible Cyrils.
|Jun-01-14|| ||perfidious: <Dom> Nasty way to go, one would think.|
Wonder whether Hyapatia Lee took her stage name from Hypatia.
|Jun-01-14|| ||Domdaniel: <perf> I admit I hadn't heard of Hyapatia Lee. That may say something about me -- that I knew about an ancient Alexandrian mathematician, but not about a contemporary Cherokee-Irish pornocrat.|
Or about you, I suppose, with terms reversed.
|Jun-01-14|| ||perfidious: <Dom> Quite possibly both.|
|Jan-06-16|| ||PhilFeeley: <Dom & perf> There's a good film about that story from 2009, called Agora:|
with Rachel Weisz in the role of Hypatia. As I recall, the murder scene wasn't as graphic as you describe.
|Jan-06-16|| ||PhilFeeley: A game in the Two Knights Defense missing here (and from Ninov's page) is Ninov-Marzolo, French Open, 2008. Why it's missing, I don't know, because it's a fairly recent game and a nice sharp one:|
1. e4 e5 2. Nf3 Nc6 3. Bc4 Nf6 4. Ng5 Bc5 (wow!) 5. Nxf7 (why not?) Bxf2 (!?) 6. Kf1 (!) Qe7 7. Nxf8 d5 8. exd5 Nd4 9. d5 cxd6 10. Kxf2 d5 11. d3 dxc4 12. h3 cxd3 13. cxd3 Bd7 14. Re1 0-0-0 15. Kg1 Rxh8 16. Be3 Qd6 17. Nd2 Bc6 18. Nc4 Qd5 19. Qd2 b6 20. Rac1 Kb7 21. Bxd4 Qxd4+ 21. Qf2 1-0
A nice miniature. Most of the games in this line are won by black, so this is a good theoretical note that should be here.
