|Mar-19-13|| ||pistraurder: actually. I don't know. in this picture....
the blank expression on his face is more than troublesome. he looks like an MK-Ultra victim.
|Mar-19-13|| ||pistraurder: oh and another 2700 performance in a rapid tournament. http://www.ajedreznd.com/2013/Zigan...|
|Mar-19-13|| ||perfidious: <pistraurder> Was Ivanov subjected to a full-body search, including all cavities, before entering the playing hall?|
|Mar-19-13|| ||HeMateMe: If you are a Russian, is "Boris/Borislav" akin to "John/Johnathan" for English names?|
|Mar-19-13|| ||Calar: No, Russian equivalent to "John" is "Ivan"|
|Mar-19-13|| ||HeMateMe: Thanks, <C>. I guess what I meant is, would Borislov be a more formal pronunciation of "Boris", or is it a different name, entirely?|
|Mar-19-13|| ||cro777: Borislav is a different name, derived from "boriti" (to combat) and "slava" (glory).|
The Latin equivalent is Ludovicus. The French forms of Ludovicus are Ludovic and later Louis.
|Mar-23-13|| ||galdur: He didnīt even manage a 2000 performance in the Tringov Memorial in February. Lilov was there watching him.|
|Mar-23-13|| ||whiteshark: <galdur> Any reports by Lilov? cud u giv us teh link, plz!|
|Mar-23-13|| ||King Radio: White shark, check chessbase front page.|
|Mar-23-13|| ||galdur: whiteshark, Lilov has totally taken this guy apart and I donīt think youīd have much problem in finding his three videos on YT. Itīs very good that this disclosure comes from a compatriot and such a competent one at that.|
|Mar-23-13|| ||whiteshark: <King Radio> Thanks for throwing light on it - found it - se ingelish 1:|
|Mar-23-13|| ||galdur: You donīt swing from 2000 to 2700 to 2000 back and then 2700 again within a year or less. Itīs a zillion to one. But the question is how does he do it. And since he does others might as well. Although chess rewards are very meager for most there can be some money in the topmost level.|
|Mar-23-13|| ||galdur: Sorry, that should be financial chess rewards of course.|
|Mar-23-13|| ||Overgod: This Ivanov clown is a patzer of the worst kind: a trolling patzer.|
He claimed in an interview, that his success comes from having practiced against and defeated programs like Rybka and Houdini 10-0 each.
He is very obviously a troll. A troll with no skills and no charisma. He's not even the troll you love to hate. He is the kind of troll that's a pain in the ass, who everybody hopes would just go away and stay away.
|Mar-24-13|| ||Illogic: At least it is amusing to see him lose horribly to 2000-level players when he can't get his 'help'|
|Mar-24-13|| ||dumbgai: Claims to beat Rybka and Houdini 10-0 each...
...loses to 1969 rated player.
|Mar-25-13|| ||thomastonk: Larry Christiansen on the future of chess in NIC 2005/1: "When chess players start to have microchips surgically implanted into their brains, it might be time to quit."|
|Mar-27-13|| ||capablancakarpov: More about this guy...
|Apr-04-13|| ||Caissanist: Welcome to the future of chess. From now on any credible tournament is going to have to have a rule that anyone whose moves all match Rybka or Houdini or whatever is automatically forfeited. I doubt that will be enough though; it would not be that hard to write an algorithm to randomize the moves enough to avoid this kind of detection. Maybe top players are going to follow Larry's advice and switch to poker (or go, or bridge) instead.|
|Apr-04-13|| ||perfidious: <Caissanist> Computers were not the reason I went from chess to poker, but who needs this rubbish?|
|Apr-15-13|| ||noctiferus: He, yesterday, again beated a bunch of GMs:
|Apr-15-13|| ||Bridgeburner: This "player" is a menace to chess.|
|Apr-15-13|| ||Bridgeburner: Lilov's recent analysis of Ivanov's alleged cheating: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qhfC...|
|May-13-13|| ||noctiferus: He did it again. Look at the games in http://old-capital-2013.chessmix.com/
http://www.messaggeroscacchi.it/?p=... (partite zippate),
with a particular attention to the game against Rombaldoni, at move 42, where after playing a game at Houdini's level, he plays Nc6,, instead of houdini second suggested move Ng6+ (it is true that in that position everything wins...).
There are some discussions going on in
