|Oct-13-04|| ||iron maiden: <acirce> Kramnik will probably play out both of his whites, but Leko will want to go for a quick draw in the thirteenth if he's still ahead. |
|Oct-13-04|| ||ConLaMismaMano: Will Kramnik switch to d4 or maybe even Nf3? |
|Oct-13-04|| ||ray keene: re length of title match
24 games is long and expensive
open ended is now impossible
for the 2000 kasparov-kramnik match in london i looked at the history of all world title matches and a magic number emerged. it was 16. with only one exception-alekhine euwe 1935-if you stopped the match after game 16 then the person who emerged as champion in fact wd still have done it.
therefore 16 games seemd a highly reasonable test-not too long and not too short. i am surprised they went down to 14 in brissago.
|Oct-13-04|| ||clocked: <ray keene> How about the match in 1984? |
|Oct-13-04|| ||MICHAEL COOLCAT: helloooo ray peter parr in sydney said to say hellooo to you ,hope to play a chess game with you 1 time ray will you be going to the chess olympiad in spain |
|Oct-13-04|| ||I sacrifice like Tal: Seeing as how 1.e4 has not served Kramnik at all well, and I just don't like 1.d4, I think Kramnik will play 1.Nf3|
*he said clinging to his 3 'Opening for White according to Kramnik 1.Nf3' books*
|Oct-13-04|| ||ray keene: <clocked> good point-technically that match remained unfinished and the player in the lead after game 16 was still in the lead after game 48. so-one cd either discount it as unfinished or regard it as confirmation of the 16 game lead rule. i dont think it contradicts it-in any case the point of the exercise was to reduce the number of games not expand them. |
|Oct-13-04|| ||ray keene: <michael c> hi-i wont be going to spain-much too busy! is peter parr team captain again? |
|Oct-13-04|| ||ruylopez900: <JimR> Scheduling for Kasparov-Kasimdzhanov has already started. It takes place January 2005. At least that's the idea. Pono-Kasparov was supposed to happen but then Pono started thingking that winning a KO title meant more then it did. Don't think Kasim will the same mistake. |
|Oct-13-04|| ||MICHAEL COOLCAT: ray please hop down to australia again i dont think peter parr will be the capt would love to play a game of chess with you 1 time |
|Oct-13-04|| ||Rawprawn: Why is the order of the games above so mixed up? Wouldn't order played be appropriate? |
|Oct-13-04|| ||offramp: They are sorted in the order of the inverse of the number of the move in which black first moves his h-pawn. |
|Oct-13-04|| ||offramp: <MICHAEL COOLCAT> Who was that Australian chess player who was thought to be a major Nazi war criminal? |
|Oct-13-04|| ||ajile: SInce Kramnik is behind eventually he will have to try something new and potentially risky to win a game. Leko used a Marshall. What will Kramnik employ? |
|Oct-13-04|| ||offramp: The final, crucial game will probobly follow Lasker vs Schlechter, 1910 in terms of tenor. |
|Oct-13-04|| ||MICHAEL COOLCAT: off ramp i rember the name karlos olzins or some thing like that he lived in melbourne victoria he dies a few yrs ago he played correspondence chess |
|Oct-13-04|| ||WMD: His name was Karlis Ozols. Strictly speaking, I wouldn't call him either a major war criminal or a Nazi. He was a member of the Latvian militia which collaborated with the Germans. |
|Oct-13-04|| ||HalfOpenFile: I think someone has created a handle of "www.chessgames.com" which is a tad naughty really when you consider the site spokesperson is "chessgames.com". Maybe the officials can have a word in www's ear. |
|Oct-13-04|| ||Dillinger: <WMD> I guess that's why "war crimes
investigators concluded he was personally responsible for the slaughter of thousands of Jews from this ghetto in Beylorus."
"The indictment against Ozols included an allegation that he commanded a unit that between July 1942 and September 1943 assisted in the transportation, guarding and execution of Jews at the Minsk ghetto, more than 10,000 of whom were murdered."
Considering that the case against him in Australia was only shut down because of budgetary constraints, I am highly skeptical of your portrayal. Of course you are free to believe he was "just" a lieutenant with the fascist militia.
|Oct-13-04|| ||pawn52: <cu8sfan: <pawn52> Maybe the username is different from yours only when you're logged in as <pawn52>? > This doesn't make any sense. |
|Oct-13-04|| ||cu8sfan: <pawn52> Yes it does. <chessgames.com> asked if you posted it. You said no as you have another handle. However you can always logout, create a new handle and then post a message like this. Not that I think you did it... The guys at cg.com can find out who did, though. |
|Oct-13-04|| ||WMD: A major war criminal would be someone like 'Gestapo' Muller or Alois Brunner.|
I don't know what is meant by the expression 'personally responsible' in the above context.
|Oct-13-04|| ||aragorn69: For those who, like me, find the 11th game draw boring and disapointing - not to say a big gamble on Leko´s part since he has only one White left -, take a look at Tim Krabbe's hilarious photomontage : http://www.xs4all.nl/~timkr/chess2/... |
|Oct-13-04|| ||Dillinger: <WMD> To me he seems slightly more than the "ordinary" war criminal, but I guess it's all relative. |
|Oct-13-04|| ||pawn52: <<pawn52> Yes it does. <chessgames.com> asked if you posted it. You said no as you have another handle. However you can always logout, create a new handle and then post a message like this. Not that I think you did it... The guys at cg.com can find out who did, though.> How can I do it if I need a password to log in and I don't even know it? And anyway, my parents would freak if I had created a new handle. They've restricted me to one and only one handle and they got tabs on my internet so they can make sure I don't break that rule. |
