May-01-06  EmperorAtahualpa: Two Dutch on top! That's great.

How many rounds does this tournament have? 9?

May-01-06  babakova: Swedish chess is no longer what it once was...Instead we have an abundance of poker players. Seriously, who cares about poker? sigh...
May-01-06  midknightblue: (babakova) I agree that it is a shame.

May-03-06  percyblakeney: Stellwagen is doing well again, in Corus B earlier this year he won against Lahno, but in the other 12 games he scored 4 draws and 8 losses...
May-03-06  EmperorAtahualpa: <percyblakeney> Yes I remember that from Corus. On the day that I visited Corus I also saw Stellwagen lose, I believe it was against Giovanni Vescovi. When I was waiting in the evening at the bus-stop, Stellwagen walked by and he looked very tired but also frustrated. He is a very shy boy though, a weird fellow!
May-03-06  TIMER: So far Timman has 5.5/6 (92%) against an average oppoent of 2553, giving him a rating performance of 2954!

Timman is in great form, playing like a top player again in this event.

May-04-06  Maatalkko: Timman is the best! I somewhat irrationally bet all of my ChessBookie points on him to win this tournament, but it looks like I lucked out on that one!

He used to be a great player, and although that fades with age it doesn't disappear entirely. Contrary to what most people think, I believe that the older players in a tournament have the most potential for a spectacular result. Although prodigies are fast improving, the old legends like Timman can always turn out amazing results if they return to their youthful form.

Boy, I'll bet whoever made that comment after 3 rounds feels like an idiot about now.

Is it the same God of the Armenians? :)

Congrats to Timman BTW...

Well last two rounds he drew in 12 and 14 moves respectively. Timman vs Fedorov, 2006

P Carlsson vs Timman, 2006

May-07-06  percyblakeney: Timman was impressive and it's fun to see him play well. At the same time he may have been slightly "lucky" a couple of times. Berg refused the draw and played on to lose, Cicak had a clear draw when he blundered, and Stellwagen missed the winning continuation. But in all I think he deserved his "luck"...
May-08-06  Marvol: <waddayaplay: Well last two rounds he drew in 12 and 14 moves respectively.>

Yes well maybe that's because he was leading easily? No need for him to take risks or what.
