Mar-30-06  DCP23: Okay, joint winners then.
Still Moro is the real winner, say what you will.
Mar-30-06  gmgomes: Congratulations for Moro and Anand for sharing 1st in Amber 2006. Moro - the blindfold king
Anand - The Speed King.
Mar-30-06  Ragh: Does anyone know the past winners list of the previous Amber tournaments. I would like to know who has most number of titles.

blindfold: http://www.ajedrezdeataque.com/05%2...

Mar-30-06  Open Defence: <Ragh> i dont have the stats but i think Anand probably tops the list of previous wins
Mar-30-06  doremi: What is the next event for us chess junkies to congregate at cg again?

  acirce: <Open Defence> he is tied with Kramnik now, 5 first places each in the combined event (clear or shared).
Mar-30-06  Open Defence: wow, how many people would have picked "Drawnik" to do well at an event like Amber
Mar-30-06  gmgomes: <What is the next event for us chess junkies to congregate at cg again?> European Championship - with Chucky, Radjabov and others (April 3rd) and Olimpiad in May.
Mar-30-06  yalie: fair result that Anand and Moro tied. Just like Anand and Topa at WAZ, it would have been a travesty if either of them had finished second.

Wow - Vishy has 4 blindfold, 5 rapid and 5 overall titles - to go alongwith his 5 WAZ titles.

Compares nicely with Kasparov's streak at Linares and Kramnik's at Dortmund.

In future tournaments, I cant imagine Moro not winning the blindfold, just as I cant imagine Vishy not winning the rapid.

Mar-30-06  Ragh: so, the combined standings for Amber tourney since its inception are -

Anand 5 titles (4 clear, 1 shared)
Kramnik 5 titles (2 clear, 3 shared)
Moroz 3 titles (0 clear, 2 shared)
Shirov 2 titles (1 clear, 1 shared)
Topalov 1 titles (0 clear, 1 shared)
Karpov 1 title (1 clear)
Ivanchuk 1 title (1 clear)
Ljubojvic 1 title (1 clear)
Kasparao 0 titles?

Mar-30-06  Open Defence: <Ragh: Moroz 3 titles (0 clear, 2 shared) > something doesnt quite add up there ..
Mar-30-06  Ragh: <Open Defence> Here is the corrected one:

Anand - 5 titles (4 clear, 1 shared)
Kramnik - 5 titles (2 clear, 3 shared)
Moroz - 3 titles (1 clear, 2 shared)
Shirov - 2 titles (1 clear, 1 shared)
Topalov - 1 title (1 shared)
Karpov - 1 title (1 clear)
Ivanchuk - 1 title (1 clear)
Ljubojvic - 1 title (1 clear)
Kasparao - 0 titles?

Mar-30-06  Open Defence: hmmm did Kasparov ever take part in Amber ?
Mar-30-06  percyblakeney: <hmmm did Kasparov ever take part in Amber ?> Nope, I read somewhere that he doesn't like blindfold competitions.
Mar-30-06  percyblakeney: ...found the link:

<Kasparov has never played the Melody Amber (named for the daughter of the tournament's patron: the rich, amiable, and charmingly eccentric correspondence chess GM J.J. van Oosterom). Kasparov considers blindfold chess a sideshow not for serious competition>

Kramnik used to be an outstanding player. Don't know how many times I have to say that.

Mar-30-06  chessmoron: FINAL MATCH RESULTS:
Blind:
Aronian-Svidler 1-0
Ivanchuk-Grischuk 1/2-1/2
Nielsen-Gelfand 1/2-1/2
Topalov-Anand 1/2-1/2
van Wely-Morozevich 0-1
Leko-Vallejo 1-0

Rapid:
Svidler-Aronian 0-1
Grischuk-Ivanchuk 1/2-1/2
Gelfand-Nielsen 1-0
Anand-Topalov 1/2-1/2
Morozevich-van Wely 1/2-1/2
Vallejo-Leko 1/2-1/2

Anand wins Rapid and Moro wins Blind. Congrats to those two!!!

Mar-30-06  doremi: Besides Vallejo which is the bigger surprise by ending up clear third, there is Van Wely which is the smaller suprise, but a surprise nonetheless by ending up ahead of Svidler and Ivanchuk. The Dutch billionaire sponsor and the Dutch fans should be proud of their fellow countryman
Mar-30-06  Ragh: If it has a Dutch sponsor, why is the event being held in Monaco?

Mar-30-06  Monoceros: For the gambling, of course!
Mar-31-06  doremi: Holland is too crowded, even the dogs there wag their tails up and down to save space
