|Mar-15-05|| ||acirce: <meloncio> Are you planning to be there and watch? Oh, and I noticed a mistake in my post -- the Leko-Adams rapid match is not until after Sofia. |
|Mar-15-05|| ||meloncio: <acirce> Yes, I'll go there two or three times at least; it's only a 15-minutes short ride by car.|
Miguel Illescas-Cordoba is the present Spanish Chess Champion; he was our number one until Paco Vallejo arose up.
|Mar-15-05|| ||poktirity: Dos bocadillos con queso for favor. Los banos arabes es muy bonito. |
One year of Spanish studying summed up in two sentences.
|Mar-15-05|| ||meloncio: <poktirity> Pretty well, but only two sentences in one year? At least I hope you like cheese sandwiches :-D|
And <only if you don't know it> for bano/baņo, use ņ=Alt+164, or Ņ=Alt+165.
|Mar-16-05|| ||poktirity: <meloncio> Didn't know that, thanks alot! Hasta maņana. Y agua mineral. :D|
Cambiones cisterna muy bonito ;)
|Mar-16-05|| ||azaris: I notice the Chess.FM Brilliancy Price has gone to one Garry of Kaspar, and it's a whopping $400!|
"Nice career Garry, here's some chump change."
|Mar-16-05|| ||offramp: It's a bit like when baseball fans save up and club together to give their favourite top player a retirement gift. |
|Mar-16-05|| ||azaris: <offramp> When someone retires it's nice to pass the hat around, but they should have used a bigger hat! |
|Mar-16-05|| ||offramp: I do think it is nice of chess.fm to do it, especially if they have that money spare, and Kasparov certainly won't say no.|
Kasparov is the kind of guy that always checks the 'returned change' chute as he passes phone boxes.
|Mar-16-05|| ||azaris: <In future Linares will feature rustlers, cut throats, murderers, bounty hunters, desperados, mugs, pugs, thugs, nitwits, halfwits, dimwits, vipers, snipers, con men, Indian agents, Mexican bandits, muggers, buggerers, bushwhackers, hornswogglers, horse thieves, bull dykes, train robbers, bank robbers, ass-kickers, @#$%-kickers and Methodists.>|
You mean next time they'll invite Azmaparaishvili?
|Mar-16-05|| ||Franz the Stampede: <You mean next time they'll invite Azmaparaishvili?>|
so LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOL :D :D :D
|Mar-16-05|| ||PinkPanther: <acirce>
There is nothing to watch, Dos Hermanas takes place over the internet.
|Mar-16-05|| ||lostemperor: You mean Azmaiperishvillain!? |
|Mar-16-05|| ||Saruman: <lostemperor> Or; Maiazperishvillain! |
|Mar-16-05|| ||lostemperor: I got that, LOL. |
|Mar-16-05|| ||hintza: <PinkPanther> Aside from the internet tournament there is actually an over-the-board event too. |
|Mar-30-05|| ||JustAFish: Does anyone know which games took home the "official" and "chess.fm" brilliancy prizes? |
|Apr-13-05|| ||VishyFan: is it just me, or everybody has got complimentary "Ciudad de Linares" key chains........ for the official prediction contest.......|
anybody has got any other prizes?
|Apr-13-05|| ||you vs yourself: <vishyfan> I got a complimentary chess board signed by Adams from the last game when he kicked Vishy's ass. Also, I got a complimentary Leko's key chain that reads: "Just draw." |
|Apr-21-05|| ||acirce: Ivanov: <Theoretical survey of the Linares tournament> http://www.e3e5.com/eng/petersburg/...|
Some interesting stuff.
|Apr-25-05|| ||alexandrovm: <JustAFish> it was the game between Kasparov and Kazim.|
|Apr-25-05|| ||Caissanist: Hmm, where's the link to this page? I only see it when it pops up in the list of recent kibitzes.|
|Apr-25-05|| ||iron maiden: Look on the homepage, under the "New Games" column.|
|Jun-08-05|| ||coolchess: A disaster the participation of the "FIDE CHAMPION" Kasimdzhanov, a really disaster, he has proved at least for me he is a lucky champion, and that donesnt have the strenght to win big tournaments.|
|Jun-08-05|| ||stijn: he was not just a lucky champion, the players in linares were just stronger than the ones he faced in tripoli last year. And classical chess is probably not his strongest point. He seems to be playing better in rapid and sem-rapid games like the ones in tripoli.|
