  tpstar: <Angel1234> Happy New Year!

What was your favorite game from the Russian SuperFinal?

Jan-01-06  notyetagm: <tpstar> I really liked Bareev's victory over Morozevich. And Bareev's combination to defeat Kramnik was spectacular.
Jan-01-06  csmath: I think over the quality of games Svidler's win over Kramnik and Morozevich's win over Khalifman were just splendidly well conducted from the beginning to the end. They both look dominating and effortless even though the opponents did not make blunders. Both were also nice textbook examples of crushing the opponent that plays passive defence. Morozevich's execution of Khalifman is also a very nice and methodical ending play.

My votes:

1. Morozevich-Khalifman

2. Svidler-Kramnik

Jan-01-06  csmath: Moro probably played the best chess. He should have won the game against Zvjaginsev and had he woke up on time against Jakovenko, he might have been the winner of the tournament.
Jan-01-06  Angel1234: <tpstar>

I liked how Morozevich outplayed Khalifman best.

Jan-01-06  yoozum: Moro's wins were very good, but I was extremely impressed with Bareev's combination that finished Kramnik. So I'd have to vote for Kramnik-Bareev.
Jan-01-06  twinlark: Bareev-Svidler
Jan-01-06  yoozum: Kramnik-Volkov was also quite good.
Jan-02-06  VishyFan: <cu8sfan> I'm a bit late to the party....., if u can refer to page 82/83, I've posted my round 11 predictions there, it seems to me that u haven't counted them......, i've got 4/6 for that round....., can u please update the same.....

  cu8sfan: <VishyFan> Thanks for your message. I just checked my records. I DID count your results, you went 4-6 in the last round for a total of 32 points. But for some reasons the counter for the number of rounds participated in didn't add one for a total of 11. Sorry about that.
Jan-02-06  VishyFan: thanks <cu8sfan> I just committed a basic mistake, didn't double check bfore posting the message.... :)

happy new year.... :)

Jan-02-06  monad: <danielpi: Thanks though to those who agree that "loose" is annoying.>

"Oh will they ever learn..."

They seem to be proud of their mistakes. Like smokers, who are proud of their ability to sicken the rest of us. Manners don't come into it anymore these days. Language is a form of civility. Maybe those of us that care for the proper use of language can have a page to ourselves? Then those that care to improve are welcome to read until they are ready.

The only way to learn another language is to sit on your hands (neither write nor type) and duct tape your mouths for the first seven years. No writing, no speaking, but simply listen and read. Passive learning before active participation. Otherwise you simply perpetuate your mistakes. And 'unlearning' is a heck of a lot harder than learning.

Typo's are bearable and an occasional misspelling is entirely human. Nobody would quibble over that. The fact that people get annoyed by our getting annoyed makes it plain enough that they don't want to set standards for themselves. They will never learn if that is the case and we might as well expand our ignore list. We won't miss much. What good can they possibly have to say if they can't be bothered to take care how they say it.

There now: this will have made me a lot of new friends :-)

Jan-02-06  TIMER: <vishyFan> You are mistaken on Morozevic's rating change as his loss for not turning up against jakovenko is not rated. So he got 6.5/10 against 2662 (expected score 5.6/10) but with the new system rating each game individually he gains 8.8 points.
Jan-02-06  TIMER: This means that Kramnik would fall below Morozevic in next rating list unless he does better than Morozevic in next few months.
Jan-02-06  VishyFan: <TIMER> ohhhhhh yeah! I did made that a point and i didn't include that as a loss for Moro, but it's my XL sheet which screwed it up.. :), here is the corrected list, changes in Jakovenko and Morozevich...., Commendable performance by Moro despite that lousy forfeit fiasco......

Jan-02-06  BIDMONFA: Russian Championship Superfinal (2005)

Plus, send history Championship of the Russia 1992-2005, Champions and Sub-Champions.

Thank You.

Jan-07-06  refutor: el khalif sure was a guy who didn't want to play. all of his games with white were draws in less than 20 moves, except for the game v. volkov who probably declined his draw offer. 6 draws with white, 2 losses, 3 draws with black.

<bidmonfa> what the #&** is a sub champion?

Jan-09-06  Vanka: In fact Moro would take 1 place but he strongly prefers sleeping with girls not playing chess
Jan-19-06  Bobak Zahmat: <Vanka> What do you think? A HOT Russian girl or playing chess!??? Well I know what to do!!
Jan-19-06  EmperorAtahualpa: Most Russian girls are very cold right now actually.
Jan-19-06  Bobak Zahmat: <EmperorAtahualpa><Most Russian girls are very cold right now actually.> They have a hot .....! So it is no problem! :)

  chancho: <They have a hot .....! So it is no problem! :)>

I'm betting that the mystery word is not "stove".

Jan-23-06  Bobak Zahmat: <chancho> I don't think so!
May-23-06  DeepBlade: cup of coffee?

It makes your elo rating go ''up''.
