alexmagnus: If we restricted this Olympiad, as <HMM> suggest, we would see no pleasant surprises like Moldova. There is already a restricted tournament for countries: the World Team Championship. Keep the Olympiad as it is!

alexmagnus: At death he was the second oldest living chess grandmaster. The new top 3 is Matanovic, Nikolac, Kraidman.

alexmagnus: < - Nepo was very stable here, no losses - proving his last Candidates win was not a fluke. Has he resolved his issues?> We cannot say whether he resolved his issues precisely because he went with no losses. In the WC match, he collapsed after the first loss.

alexmagnus: <I bet <alexmagnus> will come like a vulture to post his updated lists before Yuri's body is cold. Oh wait...> Consider me the chess version of the Gerontology Research Group, who also update their lists of oldest people very quickly and publicly :D
 
   Mar-22-22 Sergey Karjakin (replies)
 
alexmagnus: <Why should chess players having political opinions be giving chess a bad name?> It's more than just a "political opinion" in this case. Lives are at stake. Millions of lives.
 
   Feb-15-22 Borislav Ivkov (replies)
 
alexmagnus: At death he was the second oldest living Candidate. The new top-3 is Averbakh, Olafsson, Panno.
 
   Jan-22-22 Alexey Shirov (replies)
 
alexmagnus: What surprises me more in that starting list is that there is some guy with the <first category> and a rating of 1271. How??? Actually, the categories and titles of the players suggest their ratings are not really at the level of their actual playing level. See also an ...

alexmagnus: <Shirov did earn it, but then the match didn't get any sponsors.> And this is why Kasparov & Short's split ws doomed to fail. Had it happened with FIDE in charge, I'm pretty sure we would have had a Kasparov-Shirov match (and I don't think it would be as lopsided as their ...

  beatgiant: <Messiah>
<university degree vs no university degree> We usually stick to things that are easily found in the FIDE profile. This particular request requires some pretty labor intensive and error prone research, and I can't guarantee the accuracy at all.

But here's a quick attempt.

No university degree:

1. Carlsen 2855
2. Caruana 2800
3. Aronian 2782
4. So 2778
5. Giri 2774
6. Grischuk 2773
7-8. Firouzja 2770
7-8. Rapport 2770
9. Mamedyarov 2765
10. Radjabov 2763

Have university degree: *(I listed only those whose educational status I could quickly find. I very likely missed a few, and welcome any additions.)

1. Ding 2799 (Peking U. Law School)

2. Nepomniachtchi 2782 (Russian State Social U.)

3. Vachier-Lagrave 2763 (Ecole Polytechnique Federale de Lausanne)

(Duda 2756, University School of Physical Education, Kraków but I can't quickly check whether he's graduated yet)

4. Anand 2753 (Loyola College, Chennai)

5. Wang 2744 (Peking U.)

6. Karjakin 2743 (Russian State Social U.)

(Wei Yi 2725, attending or has completed college but I can't quickly find any details)

7. Shankland 2714 (Brandeis)

(Alekseenko 2710, Peter the Great St. Petersburg Polytechnic University but I can't quickly check whether he's graduated yet)

8. Yu 2704 (Beijing Sports University)

9. Eljanov 2691 (Yaroslav the Wise Law Academy of Ukraine)

10. Korobov 2690 (U. of Kharkiv)

  beatgiant: With Firouzja's win of the Grand Swiss, Arabic script makes it into the Candidates for the first time*.

*(Actually, due to the multicultural nature of human existence, I had to make a lot of judgement calls about which script to consider native for certain names. In particular, what's the native script of Azerbaijani names? Arabic script is traditional, while Latin, Cyrillic and Arabic are all in use today. But I hesitate to post a deep dive into the question and risk boring my fellow kibitzers even more than usual. For my lists above, I assumed Latin script.)

Premium Chessgames Member
  beatgiant: Maybe it would work if I put the explanation in a catchy song.

(to the tune of "Istanbul, not Constantinople")

Azerbaijani used Arabic script,
Now it's Latin script, not Arabic,
Been a long time gone, Arabic script,
Now it's shekerbura on a moonlit night.

Every gal in Sumqayit
Writes her name in Latin script,
So if you write a note to a gal in Sumqayit,
You better write her name in Latin script.

Even from Latin script they once changed to Cyrillic, Why'd they change it I can't say,
Stalin just liked it better that way.

So write Radjabov's name in Arabic script,
No you can't write his name in Arabic script,
Been a long time gone, Arabic script,
Why did Arabic script get buried?
That's nobody's business but the Azeris'.

  alexmagnus: I put the queston in the opening's page already but I also repeat it here for the readers of my forum:

Does anyone know where the name of the Forgotten Variation of the Marshall Gambit came from? Why is it forgotten? By whom?

Please no punny answers :). I seriously want to know it, the name is so unusual.

Nov-15-21
Premium Chessgames Member
  diceman: I've never heard, but my guess would be that it's rare.

Rare = not used = forgotten.

Nov-16-21
Premium Chessgames Member
  alexmagnus: Still, there must be some context in which the term was first coined. And it must have been notable enough that it got stuck as the "official" name of the variation. For most bizarre opening names finding the source of the name is easy. The Forgotten Variation... not so.

Also, it seems that the name "Forgotten Variation" is used in English language publications and media only. At least searches in German and Russian showed no knowledge of such a variation. So, I guess the source was some English language remark somewhere.
