  chancho: <The threat was not torture, but one of the match not taking place if not agreed to.>

I remember some posters commenting that Kramnik needed the match much more than Topalov did, since Vesko was the true world champ in their eyes. Why didn't he just avoid the match? My guess is he felt he would win it without any difficulties. Look at some of the photos of the opening ceremony of that match. You can see Vesko smiling like a cheshire cat in them. Yeah, it was gonna be easy he probably thought...

  keypusher: <14 dog night> To meet the legal standard of duress, Topalov would have had to sign under something similar to Warmaster Kron's scenario, not yours.

I dunno. Topalov looks uncomfortable to my imagination. Partly it's because, compared to the huge Kramnik, he seems like a little guy.

Jun-13-07  orio24: Fred Flinstone didn't make it at the end. But he made it very difficult for his opponent.
Jun-13-07  chessmoron: Can some one tell me why Aronian is posturing like a girl?

  chancho: Haven't you heard? Levon discovered that the getting beat up trick to pick up the chicks is no longer working. That girl posture is his latest method at picking up those babes! Gotta give the dude credit, he'll try ANYTHING to land a lady.

If you scroll down it'll say that Arianna Caoili is Aronian's girlfriend now. http://www.chessbase.com/newsdetail...

Jun-14-07  dehanne: <Can some one tell me why Aronian is posturing like a girl?> Maybe Gelfand dared Aronian to do his Charlie Chaplin mimic.

  chancho: <Pulse> I already knew that he was going out with Caoili.
Jun-14-07  J.A. Topfke: I think Aronian should look over his shoulder because every picture I see it looks like Caoili is making eyes at Aronian's second, Vladimir Potkin.

http://www.chessbase.com/news/2007/...

Here's one where they're sitting shoulder-to-shoulder. Really, is it necessary for them to be sitting that close?

http://www.chessbase.com/news/2007/...

Sorry, just wanted to start a rumor.

Jun-14-07  micartouse: <J.A. Topfke> I agree. He can do better anyhow. :)
Jun-15-07  Pulse: Chessbase makes interesting comments, as always.

Jun-15-07  chessmoron: http://www.chessbase.com/news/2007/...

That'll keep chess nerds turning their heads. Haba! Haba! Haba!

Jun-15-07  Open Defence: geez is that a new marketing idea by Kirsan ? no wonder he doesn't get sponsors...

  tpstar: <Haba Haba Haba> Once upon a time, there were three little girls who went to the police academy, and they were each assigned very hazardous outfits ...

If her black & white dress had velcro pieces, you could play chest, I mean, chess.

Jun-28-07  positionalgenius: Hmm,grischuk is just too good for poor rublevsky.
