|Jan-30-05|| ||suenteus po 147: I know Leko had a missed win, but I still say Topalov vs Leko, 2005 is the game of the tournament for me. |
|Jan-30-05|| ||SnoopDogg: <It's not too unlikely that we'll see Leko around there relatively soon as well.>|
What would Leko need in Linares to gain another 14 points?!
|Jan-30-05|| ||SnoopDogg: By the way who all is participating in Linares? |
|Jan-30-05|| ||iron maiden: Linares participants are Kasparov, Anand, Leko, Topalov, Adams, Vallejo Pons and Kasimdzhanov. |
|Jan-30-05|| ||acirce: <SnoopDogg> +3. |
|Jan-30-05|| ||SnoopDogg: Predictions
1. Leko/Kasparov +5
2. Anand/Topalov +3
4. Kasimdzhanov +1
5. Adams 0
6. Vallejo Pons -3
|Jan-30-05|| ||SnoopDogg: <acirce> Thanks, but I'm going out on a limb and saying he is going to get +5 how what would his rating be then? |
|Jan-30-05|| ||acirce: LOL. I will definitely eat my hat if those predictions become true. And I mean it literally! |
|Jan-30-05|| ||Annie K.: I vote for Leko vs Short, 2005 too. |
|Jan-30-05|| ||hintza: <SnoopDogg> <What would Leko need in Linares to gain another 14 points?!> Well, if my calculations are correct, Leko would need another +4 score to gain 18.7 points (+3 would only give him 13.7 points, slightly less than the 14 you stipulated). |
|Jan-30-05|| ||iron maiden: <SnoopDogg>, those predictions could only become reality if I became the eighth Linares participant. ;-) |
|Jan-30-05|| ||hintza: But as I see, <acirce> has already posted the correct answer, because 13.7 would of course be rounded up to 14 anyway! :-) |
|Jan-30-05|| ||euripides: <acirce> not too much risk of that, unless the rules of arithmetic are revised for the tournament. |
|Jan-30-05|| ||hintza: <SnoopDogg> <I'm going out on a limb and saying he is going to get +5 how what would his rating be then?> He would gain 23.7 points. |
|Jan-30-05|| ||SnoopDogg: < those predictions could only become reality if I became the eighth Linares participant. ;-)>|
Hey can't everyone be happy? Is it even mathematically possible though for it to come true?
Maybe we could sneek you in <iron maiden> with an earpiece under your hair and ear with Deep Junior 9 whispering moves in your ear.
|Jan-30-05|| ||catfriend: <Azaris> just now looked at the annotated games on your site! Highly interesting! |
|Jan-30-05|| ||fian: Game of the tournament will certainly have to be Kramnik vs Morozevich, 2005|
The game started off as a Pirc defence - a slightly unusual opening at the top level. White employed the 4.Bg5 5.Qd2 setup. Meanwhile Black chased the white dark bishop with h6,g5 and exchanged it on g3. Heading into the middlegame white has central pawns e4-d4-f3 when ... <connection aborted>
|Jan-30-05|| ||InfinityCircuit: <hintza> It's good to know I'm not the only one who voted for Polgar-Kramnik! |
|Jan-30-05|| ||csmath: Somebody with +5 in Linares?
If anybody can do that then that should be Gazza. But he has to be in the top form. And there is a question mark. We'll see.
|Jan-30-05|| ||InfinityCircuit: Figures: I only get Premium the day after live games from Corus stop. |
|Jan-30-05|| ||WillC21: It's just a great thing that Drawnik won't be at Linares. Just fantastic. |
|Jan-30-05|| ||csmath: Drawnik got tired, so now he needs to visit his doctor for another notice. ;-)) |
|Jan-30-05|| ||Backward Development: my game of the tournament would have to be....Judit Polgar vs Svidler, 2005.
I thoroughly enjoyed that one. |
|Jan-30-05|| ||Phoenix: My game of the tournament:
Topalov vs Leko, 2005
A draw! But it was spectacular, fun to watch, and was an important game that kept Leko ahead of the pack.
|Jan-30-05|| ||hintza: <my game of the tournament would have to be....Judit Polgar vs Svidler, 2005 > I had completely forgotten about this game. :-) I will have to change my mind, this is now my choice for best game of the tournament. How could I forget this? |
