Hi Everyone,

We found this nice report in Russian here that Grandmaster Mark Taimanov has been awarded with the Nobel Prize - Ludwig Nobel Prize that is which is not to be confused with the Swedish Alfred Nobel Prize.

This is the Ludwig Nobel Prize that has been given for the last five years. For 2010, the winners are historian Edvard Radzinsky, choreographer Vladimir Vasiliev and Grandmaster Mark Taimanov. The prize carries an amount of $1 million Russian Roubles and honours people from different walks of life.
