Forum Rules (Everyone Must Read!!!)

1] What you CAN NOT post.

You agree, through your use of this service, that you will not use this forum to post any material which is:
- abusive
- vulgar
- hateful
- harassing
- personal attacks
- obscene

You also may not:
- post images that are too large (max is 500*500px)
- post any copyrighted material unless the copyright is owned by you or cited properly.
- post in UPPER CASE, which is considered yelling
- post messages which insult the Armenians, Armenian culture, traditions, etc
- post racist or other intentionally insensitive material that insults or attacks another culture (including Turks)

The Ankap thread is excluded from the strict rules because that place is more relaxed and you can vent and engage in light insults and humor. Notice it's not a blank ticket, but just a place to vent. If you go into the Ankap thread, you enter at your own risk of being clowned on.
What you PROBABLY SHOULD NOT post...
Do not post information that you will regret putting out in public. This site comes up on Google, is cached, and all of that, so be aware of that as you post. Do not ask the staff to go through and delete things that you regret making available on the web for all to see because we will not do it. Think before you post!


2] Use descriptive subject lines & research your post. This means use the SEARCH.

This reduces the chances of double-posting and it also makes it easier for people to see what they do/don't want to read. Using the search function will identify existing threads on the topic so we do not have multiple threads on the same topic.

3] Keep the focus.

Each forum has a focus on a certain topic. Questions outside the scope of a certain forum will either be moved to the appropriate forum, closed, or simply be deleted. Please post your topic in the most appropriate forum. Users that keep doing this will be warned, then banned.

4] Behave as you would in a public location.

This forum is no different than a public place. Behave yourself and act like a decent human being (i.e. be respectful). If you're unable to do so, you're not welcome here and will be made to leave.

5] Respect the authority of moderators/admins.

Public discussions of moderator/admin actions are not allowed on the forum. It is also prohibited to protest moderator actions in titles, avatars, and signatures. If you don't like something that a moderator did, PM or email the moderator and try your best to resolve the problem or difference in private.

6] Promotion of sites or products is not permitted.

Advertisements are not allowed in this venue. No blatant advertising or solicitations of or for business is prohibited.
This includes, but not limited to, personal resumes and links to products or
services with which the poster is affiliated, whether or not a fee is charged
for the product or service. Spamming, in which a user posts the same message repeatedly, is also prohibited.

7] We retain the right to remove any posts and/or Members for any reason, without prior notice.


- PLEASE READ -

Members are welcome to read posts and though we encourage your active participation in the forum, it is not required. If you do participate by posting, however, we expect that on the whole you contribute something to the forum. This means that the bulk of your posts should not be in "fun" threads (e.g. Ankap, Keep & Kill, This or That, etc.). Further, while occasionally it is appropriate to simply voice your agreement or approval, not all of your posts should be of this variety: "LOL Member213!" "I agree."
If it is evident that a member is simply posting for the sake of posting, they will be removed.


8] These Rules & Guidelines may be amended at any time. (last update September 17, 2009)

If you believe an individual is repeatedly breaking the rules, please report to admin/moderator.

        Yes indeed!
        This is one of the matches (most important one) for getting qualified for coming individual Chess Championship; to play with Magnus Karlson.

          Confused.
          In one article it states Aronian won 1st place in Tata Steel tournament. In another article it states Magnesen won 1st place?
          Any one clarify?
          Thanks

            No Aronian definitely was the winner. Here is a good article about the implications of the win:
            http://www.theguardian.com/sport/201...ata-steel-wijk

            It seems like Carlsen didn't participate in this tournament since there is no mention of him in any of the articles I saw about the competition. If Aronian continues this form, he'll have a chance to take on Carlsen world the world number 1. It'll be great to see. As well as our national team has performed, chess is an individual performance sport, and our profile will be increased that much more if the worlds number 1 is Armenian. Moreover, it'll make the decision to make Azerbaijan host of some major competitions in the coming years that much more ridiculous.

                nice to see you post again gegev jan. hope to see it continue. there's nothing more valuable than hearing from our compatriots currently living in armenia. Great comeback! he lost round one to Anand, but since then he has scored 3Ws and 3Ds. Round 8 will be against Anand again. If either of them wins that round, they will likely win the whole thing.

                    Armenia's Levon Aronian wins Saint Louis Rapid & Blitz

                    Author Floyd Cook

                    19 August, 2017


                    The 15-time world champ temporarily came out of 12 years of retirement to take on a much younger generation of masters at the Rapid and Blitz tournament in St. Louis, Missouri.

                    Vietnamese top chess player Le Quang Liem lost to legendary chess player Russian-Croatian Garry Kasparov in the rapid category at the ongoing St. Louis Rapid & Blitz tournament in the United States on August 16.


                    Aronian secured a first place finish in the tournament with a combined score of 24.5 points. Sergey Karjakin (Russia) became the victor of the Blitz competition 13․5 points, with Levon Aronian taking the second place with 12․5 points.

                    Anand and Kasparov are by far the oldest two players in the 150000 Dollars prize money event and both would like to finish on a positive note.

                    On the other hand, Kasparov started the day with a loss against Karjakin, but in the remaining rounds, scored over Perez, Nakamura and Caruana and drew against the rest.

                    The mind, it is precisely this that is failed to Garry Kasparov, who has yet attempted in the course of the tournament to intensify their aggressiveness. Sergey Karjakin (Rus, 16); 4.
                    Two points for awarded for a win in rapid format, one for a draw and none for a loss. Ian Nepomniachtchi (10 + 10) 20; 5-7.
