  virginmind: well, ok, but then how did he manage to get to 2808? well, whatever, guess there's a special calculation with this performance rating stuff :)

it's good that he added some points to his normal rating. maybe he passes again in the 2700 club. and then i'll lend him some 2 million and have another world title match next year.:)

Oct-14-06  positionalgenius: Kasimdzhanov beat Naiditsch
Morozevich beat Gelfand
Mamedyarov beat Jakovenko
Oct-14-06  positionalgenius: They were live on playchess today,thats where I saw them.
Oct-15-06  positionalgenius: Morozevich-Gelfand 1-0 in 47 moves,it was a peroff.One of the years best games.
Oct-15-06  nummerzwei: It should be mentioned that the city´s name is not Feugen, but Fuegen.
Oct-15-06  THE pawn: What are the rating perf. and the rating changes for the top gunners?
Oct-15-06  jamesmaskell:

Moro with a monstrous 2917 performance rating. Korchnoi with a 2726 performance rating!

Oct-15-06  mang00neg: CG has moro with a loss versus radja, how can he be 2900+? is the score wrong?
Oct-15-06  Assassinater: No... He just won every other game.
Oct-16-06  TylerD: 2916 performance... Must be one of the highest tournemant peformances - ever?!
Oct-16-06  mang00neg: The calculator here doesnt seem to be working for me. Ivanchuk avg opposition was 2555, 6/7 and a PR over 2800, but at it calculates in the 2600s for me.
Oct-16-06  Ziggurat: Nice to see Tomi Nybäck put in the second-best rating performance too.
Oct-16-06  jamesmaskell: After correcting the calculations the top looks like this:

1. Topalov 2797
2. Anand 2779
3. Kramnik 2766
4. Morozevich 2758
5. Ivanchuk 2750
6. Svidler 2742
7-8 Aronian, Leko 2741

<Ivanchuk> I got 2568 average opposition scoring 6 out of 7 games. He gains 8.9 ELO on his October rating of 2741. Ive got him in 5th place in the World rankings.

Oct-16-06  percyblakeney: Mamedyarov is closing in on Svidler, Aronian & Leko, he should be 2736 now.
Oct-16-06  shintaro go: It's funny how Ivanchuk seems to be always near the top but is almost never fancied as a serious contender for the World Chess Championship.
Oct-16-06  jamesmaskell: Ivanchuk seems to be very inconsistant, which is probably why Ivanchuk doesnt get a shot at the top.
Oct-16-06  suenteus po 147: <shintaro go> I would have to agree with <jamesmaskell> on this one. When I first arrived in 2003 and started following chess events, I heard a lot about Ivanchuk but he wasn't in many events, and the few games he did play were mediocre by GM standards. And then in mid 2005 it was as if he exploded onto the scene for me. I saw some games this year especially which were phenomenal and made me finally realize why many kibitzers here are huge Ivanchuk fans. But who knows if this will continue next year? :)

  JointheArmy: No. Ivanchuk isn't inconsistent by any standards. He's consistently good at tournaments that don't seem to have WC implications and consistently bad when it matters most. If being inconsistent means being in the top 10 for 15 years than I'd like to be inconsistent. He was supposed to replace Kasparov after gaining the number 2 spot in about 1991 after his stunning Linares victory. If anything his nerves are what keeps him from advancing in his chess career.

  virginmind: check this incredible attack by nisipeanu, against gheorghiev. who said the good old days of romantic chess are gone? romantic, of course, in the way tal was. Kiril Georgiev vs Nisipeanu, 2006
excellent game by nisipeanu. still, i wonder if everything was calculated or was he willingly taking some risks?
Oct-17-06  Jafar219: <<TylerD>: 2916 performance... Must be one of the highest tournemant peformances - ever?!>

The highest tournament performance belongs to Mamedyarov! He won World Junior Championship achiving 2953 performance rating in 2005.

Both Short and Adams say that Ivanchuk is a genius.

Oct-19-06  I3illieJoe: I don't understand, it says this tournament lasts until oct14 but it is still going on...?
Oct-19-06  suenteus po 147: <notyetagm> I wouldn't dare dispute what they said. But I also stand by my statement :)

<I3illie Joe> The tournament is over. If you're referring to the little blurb on the homepage, <> just haven't gotten around to updating it yet.

Oct-19-06  I3illieJoe: Oh, thanks for the info suenteus. Do you know any website i can go to in order to see the final standings and the games?
Nov-21-06  charms: Dear Chessgames, the name of the village is Fuegen, not Feugen. (It's really only a few houses, so that for the duration of the tournament it might have been the place with the highest average elo - worldwide :)
