Jul-15-07  Pulse: Bu wins! Congratulations to him!
Jul-15-07  chessmoron: Bu Xiangzhi wins. 8/10. Milton vs Chanda:

Please draw. HEHE!

Jul-15-07  Pulse: Chanda is defending very well. Miton needs to be careful not to overextend.
Jul-15-07  hitman84: Congrats to Bu and <chessmoron> :) Looks like Chanda is winning.
Jul-15-07  chessmoron: I hope that Milton sees Qg3! and not to worry about the horse. If 38...fxe5? 39 Qxg7+ Bf7 40 Rd7+! and getting the Queen.
Jul-15-07  hitman84: Looks like Milton found a better move. He played Bd7.
Jul-15-07  Pulse: Uh oh. I think 38. Bd7 was bad. Chanda should now have two pieces for the rook, although for the moment the rook is more active. I'm not sure how long that will last, though.
Jul-15-07  chessmoron: <hitman84> But I feel that Chanda's ♘ and ♗ is superior to the one ♖
Jul-15-07  hitman84: Yes. Chanda will have to coordinate his pieces. Milton will pick up the e5 pawn and with his control over the d file and pawn majority has more winning chances than Chanda.
Jul-15-07  chessmoron: DRAW! Bu Xiangzhi--Winner of 2007 Canadian Open. Good Luck in Biel 2007 next! Go China!
Jul-15-07  yalie: draw in miton-chanda. Bu wins the tourney
Jul-15-07  slomarko: come on guys stop with these <I think>, <I feel>.. you all have the engine running hehe
Jul-15-07  hitman84: Game drawn. Congrats to BU!
Jul-15-07  Pulse: Congratulations to Bu for a well-played tournament. I hope he does well in Biel and gets more rating points. :)

  Marmot PFL: Looked to be a drawn ending but it shows the difference between GM and IM.
Jul-15-07  notyetagm: <chessmoron: DRAW! Bu Xiangzhi--Winner of 2007 Canadian Open. Good Luck in Biel 2007 next! Go China!>

Go Bu! Woohoo! Looks like China may soon have =two= 2700-rated GMs, Bu Xiangzhi and Wang Yue.

Jul-15-07  doremi: Well, there are more than a billion Chinese! On the other hand, almost nobody plays chess in China. They all play Chinese chess which is different from the chess we are talking about here.
Jul-15-07  trapdor: There must be something wrong with the live game website I was looking at. Sorry for the confusing message. But I am more than happy to know Xiangzhi Bu won!!
Jul-15-07  DUS: Congrats to GM Xiangzhi Bu of China!! It was predictable success of course.
Jul-16-07  Dr.Lecter: <doremi> The Chinese chess is different from chess, but not altogether different. When I play Chinese chess, I am sometimes able to use my almost non-nonexistent chess knowledge on it.
Jul-16-07  anandr: Not a bad performance and result for Sandipan, given his current ELO rating. I wonder how many ELO points he takes away from this tournament.

Rising Chinese power is beginning to show, though they admittedly still have some way to go. I'm sure tournaments like the M-Tel will start featuring some of them very soon.

Jul-16-07  Akuni: <DUS> Not completely predictable, Short was =1 last year, and I think the top players average Elo was much higher. :)
Jul-18-07  DUS: <Akuni> You are right, in sport nothing is completely predictable. :)
