  Robin01: The drawing percentage appears to be around 67%, with about 50% of the draws being less than 30 moves. Seems like a rather large percentage of draws.
Apr-13-05  cade: What a boring tournament
Apr-13-05  Marvol: Except for a 107 move in a K+Q against K,Q+2p endgame that Radjabov managed to draw, his other draws are 34, 28, 25, 18, 16 and 13 moves. None of these showing anthing that remotely resembles a will to play for it.

No comment necessary I presume... I will be more polite to Kramnik and Leko in the near future, this is way worse. Hopefully the 'Sofia Masters' idea will catch on!

Apr-13-05  roni.chessman: That is my only gripe against Radjabov. Even though he is only 18 and kicking a lot of ass, I despise the fact that he only plays to win and when ahead he draws to victory.
Apr-16-05  latvija: I find it interesting that White posted 14 wins and Black one win. I wonder if there are any other tournaments with such a lopsided result.
Apr-17-05  Milo: I find it interesting that he won with 5.5 out of 9. Talk about evenly matched!
Apr-18-05  roni.chessman: I think radjabov could've scored a few more if he wasn't such a scaredy pants and drawing everywhere....
Jun-16-05  crumpy: <roni.chessman> The players are trying to win titles/money and don't care belongs they win whether they draw etc.
