Nov-27-04  arielbekarov: It has been a marvellous performance by Garry Kasparov !

I voted
1. Morozevich
2. Svidler
3. Kasparov

and I was even hesitating if, Kasparov had the motivation that is absolutely needed, but I counted on his capacity for at least third place. But, I must say that I am stunned by his playing !

I can only be inspired by such greatness !

It also accentuates the greatness of bouth Morozevich and Svidler. They didn't manage to reach the top places this time, but the results show that the competition is very hard in chess. Their previous successes and for sure future ones show, and will show, this.

But, Garry Kasparov showed that he is very motivated by his wonderful chess in a marvellous tournament !

Nov-27-04  ruylopez900: Congrats to Kasparov, not just a win, but a fairly decisive win in which he went undefeated. Congrats also to Moro for recovering from his horrible start and getting back to 5.0/10 or =.
Nov-27-04  PinkPanther: How many points is Kasparov going to get from this tournament? Like 5 or so?
Nov-27-04  percyblakeney: Yes, a brilliant win for Kasparov of course, and Moro did finish with 2 wins and 5 draws in the last 7 games, not that bad. I too liked Kasparov-Dreev.
Nov-27-04  yoozum: i wonder what's taking chessbase from publishing the final report. it better be worth the wait!
Nov-27-04  iron maiden: It took them a while to publish yesterday's report, too. If I remember correctly they didn't have it up until eight or nine o'clock.
Nov-27-04  yoozum: i remember chessbase publishing it yesterday circa lunch time because they wanted to tell everyone kasparov won.
Nov-27-04  iron maiden: I remember that one of the recent rounds took them forever to report on. Maybe it was the ninth.
Nov-27-04  yoozum: lol, here it is at 6:35 which is when i found it.

http://www.chessbase.com/newsdetail...

Nov-27-04  Spassky69: What? Chessbase.com sucks. They always give these flash reports and say report to follow. The one report they posted it wasn't even from them! To top it all off it was old!

Chessbase.com better get it together. If your going to wait 8 hours to post a flash report, someone needs to be fired.

Or at least some competition. Oh wait. Chesspro.ru!!

Nov-27-04  yoozum: chesspro.ru is awesome, but we're one of the few on this site who can enjoy it. i'm looking forward for kasparov to give an interview about winning the event. (yes, i'll translate it)

oh, and for most of us, it's either chessbase or chessninja, and chessninja has started to suck.

Nov-27-04  yoozum: http://chessbase.com/newsdetail.asp...

unbelievable. chessbase publishes it's "report"...all it does is explain what performance ratings are and talks about the percent draws each player had.

Nov-27-04  iron maiden: I can't see why they made such a big deal about decisive game percentage.
Nov-27-04  yoozum: http://www.chesscafe.com/misha/rsf2...

last round report by chesscafe's misha savinov.

<I can't see why they made such a big deal about decisive game percentage. > iron, it's just filler; they have nothing else to write about. i just hope a GOOD report follows this, possibly with an english interview with that russian guy who won it.

good night, all.

Nov-28-04  suenteus po 147: I was dead least in the predictions, right <clocked>?
Nov-28-04  clocked: You don't get the honor of last place without competing. Lowest score went to tacticsjokerxxx and alexandrov.

Nov-28-04  percyblakeney: Thank you too, <cu8sfan>! And I'm certain we'll beat <acirce> in Corus! :-)
Nov-28-04  suenteus po 147: <clocked> Were there more than one type of predictions to participate in? Starting with round 3 or so I was predicting results non-stop!
Nov-28-04  clocked: I only collected the prematch predictions of top three finishers.
Nov-28-04  suenteus po 147: <clocked> Aha! Thank you. Yes, I didn't participate in those predictions.

<cu8sfan> Woo-hoo! Last place! It takes a lot of work to finish last, people.

Nov-28-04  Minor Piece Activity: Nice. I have the best average (3.8!) and participated in 5 rounds. Should have started earlier. :( I had a feeling that Kaspy would win this one for some reason.
Nov-28-04  iron maiden: Hey, nice guys always finish last. ;-)

Seriously though, you undoubtedly would have placed higher if there'd been bonus points for correctly predicting upsets, like in a lot of organized betting systems.

Nov-28-04  iron maiden: That last was directed to sp147, of course.
Nov-29-04  arjunkakar: <clocked> what happened to your final list of prediction scores.
