  WannaBe: That's the second day now, where player of the day's name I can't pronounce.
Premium Chessgames Member
  alexmagnus: What can´t you pronounce? "Abram", "Davidovich" or "Zamikhovsky" (kh=h in pronounciation).. And who was the first?
Aug-19-05  who: I think kh is chu sound. As in chanuka - if that doesn't help listen to the Adam Sandler song.

  WannaBe: <alexmagnus> Yesterday was Roman Dzindzichashvili, I have problem with Zamikhovsky. Mostly it's where the accent is. ZA-mik-hoff-ski? za-mik-HOFF-ski? za-MIK-hoff-ski? And Roman's last name, I won't even try... Zinzi-CHASH-villi?
Premium Chessgames Member
  alexmagnus: Za-mi-HOFF-sky is the right pronounciation.
And Dzindzichashvili: Jin-ji-ha-SHVI-li.

  WTHarvey: Here are some puzzles from Abram's games:
Mar-30-06  blingice: He's never played a Sicilian on black or white, and he prevents this on white by playing 1. d4 for 95 of his 96 games, according to his Repetoire Explorer.
Mar-30-06  makaveli52: lol thats exactly what I do, queen's gambit and caro kann, all mainly to avoid the sicilian. Cant stand that defense.
Mar-30-06  Tariqov: <alexmagnus>Are you sure thats how to pronounce the name??i think it's Za-mi-kovs-kee.
Oct-01-07  bravado1: (makaveli52) concerning your evasion of Sicilian
I can't stand King's Indian, esp. as white. If someone plays this defence against me, I feel like quitting at once. I'ma d4 player which suits me better than e4, though if I know that black plays KID, i switch to e4.
