Armenia wins Bronze in Mallorca Chess Olympiad

Armenian News Network / Groong
October 28, 2004

By Aram Hajian

YEREVAN, ARMENIA

A 3.5-0.5 annihilation of Georgia was enough to boost Armenia into a
tie for second with Russia behind Ukraine in the 36th Chess Olympiad
which finished today in Mallorca, Spain. Russia earned the silver
medal on tie-breaks over the surging Armenians due to a slighter higher
composite score of its opponents compared to that of the Armenians´.

Nevertheless, the tie for second was a phenomenal achievement for
Armenia, finishing ahead of such powerhouses as the USA, Israel,
and India.

Final Standings (Men´s - top 20 shown)
39.5 Ukraine
36.5 Russia, Armenia
35.0 USA
34.5 Israel
34.0 India
33.5 Cuba
33.0 Netherlands
32.5 Bulgaria, Spain, Greece
32.0 Poland, Switzerland, Uzbekistan,
Serbia Montenegro, Germany, Slovenia,
Belarus, Philippines, Romania

Meanwhile, the Armenian women´s team defeated Azerbaijan 2-1 in the
final round to finish in a tie for 9-12th places. China dominated
the women´s tournament, outpacing the USA and Russia for top honors.

Court Documents Exchanged in Fischer Case

TOKYO - Defense attorneys and prosecutors exchanged documents Tuesday in the first court hearing on detained former chess champion Bobby Fischer's battle against deportation to the United States.

Fischer, who is wanted in the United States on charges of violating international sanctions against Yugoslavia, has filed a lawsuit against an order to deport him. He has been detained by Japanese authorities since July 13.

During the brief court session, the attorneys exchanged documents containing their arguments and evidence. The next session was scheduled for Jan. 29.

Fischer is accused of violating international sanctions when he played a rematch in Yugoslavia in 1992 against longtime rival Boris Spassky. He won and took home $3.5 million in prize money.

The Tokyo District Court issued an injunction in September against Fischer's deportation order while judges hear his lawsuit. His supporters say the case could take about a year to resolve.

Fischer was taken into custody when he tried to board a flight for the Philippines with an invalid passport. He has claimed that U.S. officials had revoked his passport without following due process.

Fischer has, through his supporters, denounced the deportation order as politically motivated. He has said he wants to renounce his U.S. citizenship and is taking steps to marry a Japanese chess official, Miyoko Watai.

I never liked Fischer.

Typical product of brainwashed anti-Soviet America. Always seeing conspiracies (which ofcourse there were but that's not the point biggrin.gif ).

AGGRESSIVE PETROSIAN SURPRISES BERKES
by Stan Rayan

The Hindu, India
November 22, 2004

He is named after one of the legends of the 64-square game. On Sunday,
Armenian Tigran Petrosian lived up to the name by stunning the boys'
top seed Ferenc Berkes in the World junior chess championship at the
Casino Hotel here.

The attacking 40-move victory, in Tarrasch Defence, gave the
fourth-seeded Petrosian the lead after the fourth round. With
four points, he has only India's P. Harikrishna, the second seed,
for company.

"I was born just a month after the former world champion Tigran
Petrosian's death. That's how I got this name," said the Armenian
Grandmaster. But unlike his famous namesake, he plays a very aggressive
game.

Playing black, Petrosian turned down the offer of a draw on the 23rd
move and triumphed with a powerful king-side attack. Hungarian Berkes
had lost the edge earlier with a pawn blunder on the 15th move.

Petrosian was very cautious about his chances against Harikrishna,
his next big rival. "To play Hari in India is very difficult. But
nothing is impossible," he said.

Harikrishna, also playing black, was in fine nick today, winning
against Swede Hans Tikkanen comfortably in 40 moves of Bogo Indian.

Former Asian junior champion Deepan Chakravarthy was another impressive
Indian, surprising seventh-seeded Uzbek Grandmaster Timur Gareyev
with a lethal king-side attack.

While the boys' section produced decisive results on all the top ten
boards, three of the top five boards in the girls section ended in
draws. Four players - Poland's Joanna Madjan, China's Zhang Jilin
and Woman GMs Elisabeth Paehtz (Germany) and Anna Ushenina (Ukraine)
were at the top of the pack after fourth round.

My kids finished the national chess tournaments in Florida very successfully.
Arvan earned 5.5 points out of seven, which placed him, the 13th nationally. Going into the tournaments he had a rating of 1100 against dozens of kids who had 1500 and above rating. He won games against NY chess school kids 1600 whom they brought their personal couches with them.
I was rather surprised how combative my kids played considering chess is not their only activity ,music and sports take equal time effort.
Mateos earned 5.00 out of 7.00, which placed him the 7th nationally. Mateos did great and for five yr old kid he showed remarkable maturity.

Congrats Armat. That's cool, gotta start the seeds up young with any pastime. My father was a big fan of chess and taught us to play as well. I need to get my game back to where it used to be. Thing about my Dad is he "retired" before we really started beating him... How do you fare against your sons?

Thanks everyone for your jerm comments.

I do lose to Arvan when I make a mistake but often I lose on purpose in order not to crush their spirit specially Mateos.Nothing is more motivating then beating their daddy biggrin.gif
Ani
Mateos is sort of short for Matevos which was my grandfather's name.I believe Germans do use it as well.
I am still waiting for the kids to come home.I wished I could be there but this is holiday season and I must work.

First woman in history to break the gender barrier in chess.
Just a correction Mateos won 4th place and Arvan 12th.Yeah I got it wrong.
