Kibitzer's Corner
< Earlier Kibitzing  · PAGE 21 OF 21 ·  Later Kibitzing>
May-26-07  DUS: <adair10> Thank you very much for the link to Movsesian letter to Kasparov. (I noticed it late, but I am very happy I didn't miss it at all.)

<I can hardly imagine world's best tennis players, swimmers, athletes trying to offend his colleagues. I think, you still have to learn a lot about professional sportsmen's behavior!>

I am sure Kasparov, Fischer, and many other less important players have to learn, learn and learn.

But the most impressive is the part where Movsesian speaks about him being an Armenian. Even <ArmeniaNL> has mentioned that portion above, let me to bring it again:

<For your information, I'm not ex-, I always was, I am and I would be Armenian and I'm proud of this, and, unlike others, I never changed my name and nationality, trying to adapt to concrete circumstances and concrete people.

Sergei Movsesian
>

Bravo Sergei Movsesian!

And again thank you very much <adair10>!

May-27-07  Mameluk: Movsesian-Morozevich today. Who cares about some candidates anyway?
May-27-07  percyblakeney: Movsesian wins against Morozevich, Morozevich wins with black, so it must be a draw.
May-27-07  Mameluk: Movsesian is so faĝ playing supersolid going for a draw with white.
May-27-07  Mameluk: Now Sergei has perpetual which means sharing 1st place at least - and relying on Moro´s strength probably even ensures 1st place alone.
May-27-07  DUS: Is this the link to live games?

Where are group A games, does anyone know? Thanks.

Perhaps we should also add 1. e3 e5 2. d3 d5 3. d4! ~lol~ ;-) - Mal

May-28-07  percyblakeney: A Morozevich-Radjabov game might start like this:

Schlechter vs G Marco, 1894

  keypusher: I am obviously the last person in the world to notice this but "Black" scored +6-0=4 in Morozevich's games! Wonder if that's ever happened before?
Jun-07-07  nescio: <keypusher: I am obviously the last person in the world to notice this>

You would be the last but one.

<but "Black" scored +6-0=4 in Morozevich's games! Wonder if that's ever happened before?>

Comparable might be Boleslavsky's remarkable record in Groningen 1946. Of his 19 games Black won 10, White won 3, and 6 were drawn.

Even more than the results his games gave the impression that playing with White was a serious handicap.

  SwitchingQuylthulg: <"Black" scored +6-0=4 in Morozevich's games! Wonder if that's ever happened before?> Have a look at Crafty's games from the 2006 WCCC. 9 wins for Black and two draws.

  keypusher: <nescio> Funny! I took a look...Boleslavsky's games with White at Groningen give the impression that the Ruy Lopez has been refuted...usually he doesn't even make it to an ending. But here he is making 1. d4 look bad: E R Lundin vs Boleslavsky, 1946

<SwitchingQuythulg> That's amazing.

Jun-10-07  nescio: <keypusher> Of course Boleslavsky played those Ruy games against Botvinnik, Euwe, Smyslov and Szabó, who were 1-4 in the final standings. But there was indeed an enormous difference between the childish way he lost them and the breathtaking style with which he won his King's Indian and Sicilian games with Black.
