|Oct-02-04|| ||yoozum: i think it was fischer. |
|Oct-02-04|| ||Willem Wallekers: Fischer is the better chessplayer after all. |
|Oct-02-04|| ||yoozum: lol, of course. |
|Oct-02-04|| ||technical draw: <yoozum> If Kramnik "..goes for the easy draw to recuperate.." then Leko will get another chance with the white pieces. I say forget recuperation and go for the win. (of course that's easy for me to say since I wasn't the one hunched over the board today for five hours) |
|Oct-02-04|| ||acirce: <yoozum> scenario 2 is more likely than scenario 1, but perhaps even more likely is that he just plays his game as usual.. my eyes wouldn't pop out in shock if it is a quick draw though. |
|Oct-02-04|| ||yoozum: neither would mine, but they would if leko managed to win again, with black. |
|Oct-02-04|| ||Nezhmetdinov: Well bugger me - after Leko played into the Karpov - Anand line we were all discussing earlier I really thought we were going to have a draw - The depth of Mr L's preparation is astonishing. I wonder what his idea was if VK had kept the bishops on? Really great to read everyone's views after the fact - people going nuts about the draw to come then just people going nuts. What a game. |
|Oct-02-04|| ||Giancarlo: I think Leko's ability to win this game shows how he can play with surprises. After all, isnt that what the WCC is all about? :-) If Leko was all happy after he lost game 1, then imagine how happy he is now! And if Kramnik was so stoned after he won game 1, imagine now...:-) |
|Oct-02-04|| ||Capafan9: Amazing! Leko guarentees victory and comes through. It will be interesting to see how Krammik responds tommorrow. I think that he can't just try to couterpunch for the rest of the match, he has to go for something sooner or later. |
|Oct-02-04|| ||Sneaky: <Leko guarentees victory and comes through.> The chess equivilent of Babe Ruth's "called shot" ! |
|Oct-02-04|| ||technical draw: Or Ali's.."this is no jive, he's down in five!" |
|Oct-02-04|| ||prn: Hey, chessgames! What's the sort criterion here. I see 5 games at the beginning of this page. They're not in chronological order. They're not sorted by who had which color, by number of moves, or by ECO entry. Could you please arrange for them to be in some kind of order? Preferably by the order in which they were played. Thanks. |
|Oct-02-04|| ||Knight13: The next match is on Sunday 15:00 pm. Good luck, Leko and Kramnik! |
|Oct-02-04|| ||RisingChamp: Leko finally switched pawns,and now its game on!Wonder if Leko will go for the throat with a sicilian novelty to take advantage of the momentum. |
|Oct-02-04|| ||chesscookie: when was the last time kramnik lost to anyone in a classical game ( not blindfolded )? |
|Oct-02-04|| ||refutor: i hate to bring fischer into this but he did guarantee he'd beat najdorf in less than 25 moves in the following game... Fischer vs Najdorf, 1962 |
|Oct-02-04|| ||refutor: <when was the last time kramnik lost to anyone in a classical game?>|
Adams vs Kramnik, 2004
|Oct-03-04|| ||redribbon3700: When is the next game? |
|Oct-03-04|| ||iron maiden: <redribbon3700> Next game starts tomorrow at 9:00 Eastern time, if I'm not mistaken. |
|Oct-03-04|| ||Stavrogin: Just logged in by curiosity on how many moves the drawn game yesterday lasted... AND FIND LEKO ACTUALLY BEAT KRAMNIK IN THIS GAME THAT EVERYBODY - INCLUDING MYSELF - GATHERED WAS A DRAW!
THIS IS GREAT NEWS!
NOW THIS MATCH CAN GO ON TO BECOMING A TRUE CLASSIC!
i WILL NOW READ ALL THE REACTIONS - LOOKING FORWARD TO READ WHAT YOU PEOPLE ON THIS SITE HAVE SAID ABOUT IT ALL - AND PLAY THIS MASTERPIECE THROUGH MYSELF.
|Oct-03-04|| ||acirce: <when was the last time kramnik lost to anyone in a classical game> I Sokolov vs Kramnik, 2004 - not that Adams game which was earlier in the tournament. |
|Oct-03-04|| ||steven18: Anybody know what time Garry plays today and what sites I can view the Cremes(is that what it's called?) games at? |
|Oct-03-04|| ||I sacrifice like Tal: <Stavrogin> In order not to sounds like a complete moron, do not write in caps like that. |
|Oct-03-04|| ||acirce: <steven18> The official page of the event is http://www.tsf.org.tr/ecup2004/ecup... - it seems they will relay the games there, and they should start 3 PM Turkish time which is GMT+2 so in about 90 minutes. Otherwise use ICC as usual.. However, Kasparov doesn't seem to play in the first round. |
|Oct-03-04|| ||azaris: Are they really relayed on ICC? I have to say that website is one of the strangest I've seen for a while, but Turks are known for their eccentricity I guess. |
