Kibitzer's Corner

Jan-14-12  lost in space: <<Refused:> Meier is getting a decent beating at Dortmund. And after his rants at GM Gustafsson blog, I really enjoy Meier getting beaten the living daylight out of him at Dortmund.>

Would like tom get more details. Please specify. Thanks

Jan-14-12  Refused: Some time last year, Gusti was playing a mini match against French GM Fressinet. The match took place as an event organized by the Schachjugend (Junior Division of the German Chess Federation) during the German Junior Championships.

Gustafsson was picked apart by Fressinet in that match (no other way to put it). During that match Meier made some remarks on another website and also commented on Gustafsson's blog. Basically saying: "Ha, why does that player get to play a match? That's an excellent training opportunity wasted on a far inferior player. "The right players to play such an event would have been me (Meier) or Naiditsch. We're younger and by far better"

Note: at that point the rating difference between Gusti and Meier were 4 (four!) Elo points :') Meier 2650
Gustafsson 2646.

If Naiditsch had voiced that opinion, I would have given him some credit, since Naiditsch is probably better. But with Meier ranting, that <the best paid event in the last 10 or 15 years was given to a player, against whom the criteria age and strength speak> was somewhat, odd.

And publicly attacking a team mate is very poor style.

Aug-26-12  waustad: Happy b'day today!
Jan-03-13  ketchuplover: Good luck at Baden-Baden :)
Feb-10-13  norami: Hermann Goering once said, "If a single British bomb drops on Berlin you can call me Meier!" but I never figured out what that was supposed to mean.

  piltdown man: I think it was "Meyer".
Jul-28-13  DoctorD: It was Meier, and it meant you could call him an idiot.
Premium Chessgames Member
  HeMateMe: Goering got his at the end, when he ate cyanide to cheat the hangman's noose. Historians now believe it was an American prison guard, a fellow from Texas, who got fat boy his cyanide cap that he kept hidden in his mouth. The Texan was a military/history buff, who spent a lot of time talking to Goering, at the prison, while the Reichsmarshall was part of the Nuremberg trials.

  Penguincw: Happy Birthday Georg Meier!
Premium Chessgames Member
  whiteshark: Serious study and chess, it like trying to square the circle. Good luck in finding your own pathway, Georg!
Jul-13-14  virginmind: Smashed Kramnik with black in the first round of Dortmund 2014.
Premium Chessgames Member
  Richard Taylor: I also liked Smyslov's games. Great range: combinations and beautiful games of great planning or creative defense. Endings also.

Meier played a nice game against Kramnik.

Jul-23-14  Chris321: Chess at a certain level,maybe higher 2700 or somewhere in the 2800 looks very unpredictable esp in the middlegame,the conventional rules these kind of players just ignore and then they do other things not written much about in books,it's just too advanced for players under GM level to understand properly.I have seen a good couple of games that's in this category,some of Kasparov's games,some of Fischer's games too,Petrosian and Tal too,although they,the last 2 mentioned never cracked the 2700 elo,but maybe they could if they lived today,come to think of it Lasker,Capablanca,Alekhine could be included in this group.These guys were just a bit different than the rest for some strange reason probably not known!.
Jul-23-14  Chris321: I'm just mentioning the above because,sometimes it appears on the site that some bloggers drawing conclutions too easily when it comes to strong players,iv'e read many comments on here that try to compare Fischer with a Stockfish for instance,to me that's not realistic.Also to be able to compare one player with another,esp the super GM,i believe non of our bloggers on here are even remotely able to do that meaningfully,i won't even try!.

  Penguincw: Happy 27th birthday to GM Georg Meier!
Jul-04-15  epistle: The only genuine GM at Dortmund.

An underdog against the dog. But let's pray for his victory.

  Dionysius1: Interesting to see him wearing a Grenke shirt in the photo, with the tournament just finished.
Premium Chessgames Member
  whiteshark: <Dionysius1> <Wolfgang Grenke> is a Sinquefield-like sponsor, who is currently sponsoring two German Bundesliga (Chess League) teams: the champion OSG Baden-Baden and the 'junior team' of SF Deizisau.

Since Meier has already played in both teams, the picture could have been taken a little earlier. ;)

Premium Chessgames Member
  Dionysius1: Thanks for the info. I just like the coincidence.
May-02-19  Eyal: Btw, Meier plays in the tournament <because> he's a member of a Grenke-sponsored team, so in this sense it's not really a coincidence - it has basically been a tournament for Grenke-sponsored team members since its beginning in 2013. Mostly Baden-Baden, the monster-team that dominates the Bundesliga for the last decade: this year, all the top 5 of their roster (, under "Kader") played + Naiditsch & Vallejo. Carlsen is not playing in the Budesliga anymore, but he used to play for Baden-Baden when he was younger. The only exception is the player who qualifies from the open of last year - though this year, as it happened, it was Keymer who also plays in Deizisau...
Oct-27-21  Albertan: Georg Meier has transferred to the Uruguayan Chess Federation:

Feb-27-22  spingo: He is a wonderful person AND a powerful chess player.

Not as powerful as Karjakin though.
