  1. This is great stuff from GM Sergey Shipov! Reading every account from the round #3 games of the “Tal Memorial” I was totally in stitches! ~lol~

    Keep up the most excellent translation work you are publishing mishanp. :)

    If I was to tell you how pleased I am it would be a total understatement! *wink* :P

    All the Best,

    PS: BTW: I was kibitzing ‘live’ on chessgames.com this morning. After the game score was finally recovered (as we lost transmission in the ‘Karjakin-Nakamura’ game after 28… Ke7) duly posted the following in this games thread: http://www.chessgames.com/perl/chessgame?gid=1599609&kpage=9#reply201 Sent you a tweet about it too! :)

    PPS: The use of Evgeny Surov’s live photos (from his exquisite Blog I suspect) are just wonderful too! ;)

    Thanks! Surov now actually has his own very impressive chess site, Chess-News, where Shipov posted and you can find the photos: http://chess-news.ru/node/265

    That’s terrific! I first found him (Evgeny Surov) many years ago… It was just after a true Chess legend had passed away the ever amazing Grandmaster David Bronstein. Surov was the first to report it with touching pictures of the memorial service. He’s been ‘bookmarked’ ever since.

    Now I can finally update my links! :P

    Thanks once again mishanp. :D

    My Best Always,

    PS: My current post on chessgames.com in the ‘Karjakin-Nakamura’ game thread from round #3 where I mention “Sergey Shipov on the Tal Memorial Rd 3” (by mishanp on November 8, 2010). http://www.chessgames.com/perl/chessgame?gid=1599609&kpage=9#reply201

  3. Mishanp translations are great, but it only enforces my eagerness to learn russian and get the info at the font :)
