  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.)

  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.

Interestingly, the nuclear power list is not affected by all the derussified Russians - the highest rated of them, Andreikin, is rated 2729. And it contains only one Russian at all.

  alexmagnus: Carlsen refusing to play the next WC match btw marks an end of an era: whoever wins the next match, Nepo or Ding, for the first time since ages there will be a world champion who never played Korchnoi (who played all world champions from Botvinnik till Carlsen - and beat at least once all but Kramnik and Anand).

  alexmagnus: <Korchnoi (who played all world champions from Botvinnik till Carlsen - and beat at least once all but Kramnik and Anand).>

If we also count the FIDE split world champions, he never beat Khalifman and Kasimdzhanov (but played both - four times vs Khalifman and three times vs Kasim).
