  PhilFeeley: Does anybody have any idea what went on in today's Bologan-Rublevsky game? It seems they were headed for a sure draw but a couple of odd moves at the end meant Rublevsky could have snatched a win out of it. They were beyond time control (I think); moves 42 and 43 were the odd ones. Any suggestions? Bad transmission?

  messachess: Karjakin has had only three whites in 7 games, but he has to, obviously, win with black if he wants to break into the top 5 some day. The question is how serious is he about it.
Jun-09-10  AuN1: <<messachess: Karjakin has had only three whites in 7 games, but he has to, obviously, win with black if he wants to break into the top 5 some day. The question is how serious is he about it.>>

are you kidding me? what did you expect karjakin to do in the round 6 game when his opponent went for a draw, as white, on the 14th move?

Premium Chessgames Member
  messachess: <AuN1> I didn't play over the game. The point is (and I'm a Karjakin fan) that he needs to get very serious to get to the top, and there are many that think he has the potential. That means one thing and one thing only: winning.
Premium Chessgames Member
  messachess: ...and not losing--being nearly impossible to beat. That's the top.

  Troller: Rianzantsev-Karjakin after 18.Bxd5:

According to online Stockfish, 18..Bxd5 is the only viable move, giving Black some advantage.

Jun-10-10  Don Cossacks: Jakovenko beat Motylev who suffered his second straight loss:(
Premium Chessgames Member
  wordfunph: in Onischuk-Vitiugov game, a case of blunder to blunder!

Onischuk should have taken the unsupported rook on d3, he may be thinking of a swindle instead he replied with 32...Rb7??

watta game!

Premium Chessgames Member
  Troller: <wordfunph> I think there has been some relay errors, those suggested moves are not possible from the score given now.

Black won 3-0 today, two games drawn. Three players have a plus score; Jakovenko may have trouble winning stuff like Tal Memorial or Corus, but in this tournament he shows he is not just the ordinary super-GM.

Jun-10-10  frogbert: karjakin touches top 10 in the live list after today's update. i think that's a first for him. :o)
Premium Chessgames Member
  Troller: Jakovenko has the White pieces against Riazantsev today, but got nothing from the opening, may even be slightly worse.

Rublevsky is in deep trouble vs. Vitiugov, probably he missed the following tactics:

After 15.Rxa7 Nxa7 Black would be somewhat worse, but White played <15.Ne5!> with a likely winning position. Now, 3 moves later, still some tactics are looming, so nothing is certain, but Vitiugov has plenty time and should be able to find a win.

Premium Chessgames Member
  Troller: Bologan has an extra pawn and better position against Jobava, a likely win for him. Sokolov got in some prep as White against Sutovsky's Grünfeld, but so far Black is OK.

Karjakin-Onischuk looks pretty drawish - and meanwhile Jako-Riazantsev has been drawn, so it seems the tournament leaders are still within reach of the Grupetto.

Jun-11-10  Don Cossacks: Bologan punished Jobava's Caro-Kann.Good day for chess.
Premium Chessgames Member
  Troller: <Don Cossacks: Bologan punished Jobava's Caro-Kann.Good day for chess.> Not if you like to play the C-K...A funny way of handling the Advance Variation by Jobava, he never bothered with playing c6-c5; instead he ended up with this:

Black's knights and rooks are obviously close to their optimal squares here.

Jun-11-10  frogbert: those coordinated pieces in that c-k remind me of one of the more hilarious french positions i've seen:

black's previous move was nc7-a8 in response to bxh6! obviously it didn't do much to stop qg5 with mate to follow. needless to say, this game was not played at a very high level. :o)

thanks! indeed transmission error..

Jun-11-10  AuN1: karjakin's victory over riazantzev in round 8 was superlative. just as good as grischuk over gashimov at the world team championships.
Jun-13-10  kurtrichards: The last round produced full point for Karjakin and Bologan against their respective opponents and both earned 7 points over all to tie for first but Karjakin emerges as the Poikovsky Karpov 2010 Tournament champion on a superior tie break. Congratulations Sergey Karjakin and to all participants!

Jun-13-10  chislanoua: Bravo, Viorel-Victor Bologan! 3 points in the last three games is a wonderful achievement!
Premium Chessgames Member
  wordfunph: congrats Sergey and Viktor!
Jun-13-10  Don Cossacks: Bravo Sergey!You added another feather in your cap.Karjakin would be Russia's brightest hope for WC title in the near future.BTW,Russia will smoke the field in the upcoming Olympiad,mark my words.

Jun-17-10  kingfu: This is a quite amazing tourney when the bottom three guys, who average about 2700 rating, have one win in eleven games.

Oh BTW, the French is one win and three draws!

How come Korchnoi was not invited?
