|Apr-29-07|| ||Atking: So Artemis was right the relationship between these players decided the day. Quite elegant from the world champion.|
|Apr-29-07|| ||Shajmaty: <code13: Was 30..Qf6 not completely winning for Kramnik?> As <acirce> and myself have already commented, 30. Ke4 was never played!|
|Apr-29-07|| ||acirce: Draw official but I don't think Ke4 was played. Typical relay thing, they usually put the kings on e4 and e5 to illustrate that the game was drawn and so Ke4 or Ke5 gets registered as a king move if legal.|
|Apr-29-07|| ||Ulhumbrus: According to the official site White's thirtieth move is 30 Ke4 after which a draw is agreed.|
|Apr-29-07|| ||Knight13: Really? There's only 6 games for this match?|
|Apr-29-07|| ||chancho: The upcoming match with Aronian should be a doozy.|
|Apr-29-07|| ||artemis: code 13: there was plenty winning for Kramnik after ... Nf4! However, a win and a draw were equivalent for him so why demoralize leko with playing it out. Just offer the draw, and Kramnik still wins the match.|
|Apr-29-07|| ||Softpaw: Okay, that was a fun, wine-filled inconsequential match between friends.|
|Apr-29-07|| ||chancho: <Knight13> Eight games.|
|Apr-29-07|| ||artemis: Knight13: 8 games. Cg.com does not have the scores up, but if you look on this page and then about page #16, I have posted the scores of 7 and 8.|
|Apr-29-07|| ||artemis: Softpaw: not inconsequential. The Leko chess school got some publicity. that is important. Competitively inconsequential, yes, but significant in other regards.|
|Apr-29-07|| ||artemis: btw: I think that I have deleted all of the posts that were only relevant to posting the moves during the games. If I missed a few sorry, but the page should be a cleaner read now.|
|Apr-29-07|| ||artemis: Well, so long and thanks for all the chess.|
|Apr-29-07|| ||chancho: Take care of yourself <artemis>|
|Apr-29-07|| ||jessicafischerqueen: Er--
<Leko- no chance>
You heard it here first.
i won a fortune, also. Not chessbucks.
Heh. Hope you all enjoyed the match.
(goes to gloat and count money)
|Apr-29-07|| ||Plato: Argh, I was hoping you had killed off <insane old batte>, but I see she came back to gloat. Like most others, I also expected Kramnik to win (even though I was pulling for Leko). The outcome of the match was not terribly surprising... the slight favorite won by a slight margin. |
Prediction that Kramnik would win: heard it from <russep> first.
Comment that Leko had <no chance, no chance>: still wrong.
Splitting hairs?: Most definitely :-)
|Apr-29-07|| ||jessicafischerqueen: <Plato> LOL
Jess of the Yard (the <batte> is dead
|Apr-29-07|| ||chancho: The Aronian vs Kramnik rapid match page is already open. |
(Only six games for this match)
|Apr-29-07|| ||Plato: Now that is a match I'm *really* looking forward to. I think that after Anand, those are the two best rapid players in the world. Despite Kramnik's excellent form lately, I predict an upset victory for Aronian.|
|Apr-30-07|| ||Dr.Lecter: And again, I lose bunch of chessbucks.|
|Apr-30-07|| ||jessicafischerqueen: OK under the I can't resist file.
Promise this is the last time, but:
FOR <Plato> ONLY!!
<Aronian: No chance, no chance mate>
|Apr-30-07|| ||Plato: <JFQ> Aha! Ok, *now* you'll get full gloating privileges if Kramnik wins. (I do NOT grant them this time, however, because in this match we were in agreement: I also thought that Kramnik would win, only I estimated his chances as somewhat lower than 100%) :-P|
|May-01-07|| ||timhortons: the sicilian is nowhere to be found....i hope they slug it out in the sicilian or scotch soon|
