|Dec-23-06|| ||DCP23: <alexmagnus> Never mind that. You were doing an excellent job.|
|Dec-23-06|| ||malthrope: Amazing - just amazing! ;-)
Accumulative score (after 9 games): Lahno 6.5-2.5 Negi
Go Katya! :-)))
|Dec-23-06|| ||samsal27: <malthrope> I am not at all surprised. Katya revels in the shorter versions of the game. It could get still uglier for Negi in the rest of the match!|
|Dec-23-06|| ||DCP23: <samsal27>: <It could get still uglier for Negi in the rest of the match!>|
What, uglier than a one-sided 0-3 loss?! I'm intrigued. Will she proceed to beat him physically? I have more ideas, but Negi is underaged and CG.com is moderated...
|Dec-23-06|| ||Wild Bill: <DCP: <What, uglier than a one-sided 0-3 loss?!>>|
I suppose uglier than that would be two one-sided 0-3 losses.
Susan Polgar has some words about the match on her blog this morning. See susanpolgar.blogspot.com/2006/12/lahno-dominates-negi--
Were I a betting man, my money would have been on Ms. Lahno. I hope the kid can keep his cool through this. He had a rough time this afternoon.
|Dec-23-06|| ||malthrope: <samsul27> It wasn't surprise just amazed at the way she killed him in the 3 Rapid games today! :-) I've been a long time fan of Katya's since she was winning chess tournaments back at the age of 10! Even started a topic in 'ChessNinja' (Mig's Forum) >> International Events >> "The 'Amity Grandmasters Challenge' - Lahno vs. Negi" |
Await the final accumulative score (all 18 games) with baited breath... ;-)
|Dec-24-06|| ||samsal27: <malthrope> Katya has become a huge draw in India. Her photo has been splashed all over the front pages of the Indian newspapers. Such events are good for the promotion of chess, especially in our country. Hats off to the organisers!!|
|Dec-24-06|| ||malthrope: <samsal27> I'll bet she has! She's a sweetie and so honest... ;-) After her win in game #6 (where Pari, as we all know, missed a forced mate in 6) she said, "I was very lucky." Indeed that's the mark of a champion to take the victories & defeats graciously and offer due apologizes when 'luck' enters the picture! I sincerely hope the very best for young Negi as he is just beginning his chess career... Speaking of which, I can't wait till the great 'GM Vishy Anand' plays again at 'Wijk ann Zee' (Corus) starting in January 2007! :-)))|
|Dec-24-06|| ||DCP23: Kateryna just won the 4th rapid game (with Black).
The opening was the Scotch Game, Rublevsky's favorite. The endgame looked to me like Negi might have missed a draw somewhere.
|Dec-24-06|| ||Rolfo: Negi won 5th i think.|

Which newspapers you are talking about. In yesterday's Mumbai edition of The Times of India, there was a small article on the back page of the sports section. I think it was two columns wide. And that's all I have found of the coverage.|

Wow... I thought she was gonna say she was thinking about watching some random TV show through the whole game, coz you know... that's the standard line nowadays when you are ahead in the match score... hats off to her for actually setting a good example.
|Dec-24-06|| ||Karpova: Though Parimarjan is still so young he's much wiser and mature than some older players who come up with ridiculous accusations once they lose a game or two (or a whole match).|
|Dec-24-06|| ||alexmagnus: Will the game 6 (12) ever be played??? I don't see any broadcst|
|Dec-24-06|| ||Aspirador: If you look at http://www.amitychessacademy.com/li... you can read at the bottom left that Negi won game 12. Something probably went wrong with the live broadcast.|
|Dec-24-06|| ||alexmagnus: OUCH that game was really bad. How could she drop a piece that early?|
|Dec-24-06|| ||samsal27: <Indeed that's the mark of a champion to take the victories & defeats graciously and offer due apologizes when 'luck' enters the picture> Katya is a Champion one hundred percent!!|
|Dec-24-06|| ||sheaf: negi lacks experience;; he is brilliant but katya seems to have a better understanding of chess... he is getting outplayed in complex positions;; apart from game six where negi missed a mate in 6 i dont think he ever had a serious chance throughout the 1st phase of the match|
|Dec-24-06|| ||Ulhumbrus: Negi is still learning. Capablanca and Lasker would both advise him to try to learn from his defeats, learn what to avoid, find out the reasons for a loss.|
|Dec-25-06|| ||DCP23: Kateryna got 2.5 points out of the first 3 blitz games, thus winning the match. The final score will be known after they play 3 more games.|
Congratulations to Katya!
|Dec-25-06|| ||DCP23: Look at that:

|Dec-25-06|| ||chesslearning: <DCP23>, yeah that's definitely a beauty!|
|Dec-25-06|| ||Karpova: Draw agreed in the last blitz game.
Lahno won every stage of the match which is quite impressive!
|Dec-25-06|| ||DCP23: The final match score is 11-7 for Katya.
Specifically, she won the Classical part 3.5-2.5, then she won the Rapid part 4-2, then she won the Blitz part 3.5-2.5.
|Dec-25-06|| ||Rolfo: I thought this match would be much closer, obviously young Negi need more time. Thinking about it, the difference here was experience..|
