Jan-06-08  brankat: <malthrope> Yes, I did the same. 100 bucks :-)
Jan-06-08  malthrope: <ahmadov: <malthrope: [...] Anyway, that is a bit depressing (I mean the draw, not the fact that I did not read the post :-) )...>>

Yes, that makes three of us! ~lol~

Jako won the first game vs. Inarkiev... 2nd Rapids Game will be starting shortly! :)


Jan-06-08  malthrope: <brankat: <malthrope> Yes, I did the same. 100 bucks :-)>

$137 here - I was clearly over optimistic! ~lol~ Getting killed in the - 83rd Hastings Chess Congress (2008) - can pick any result right! :-(

Jan-06-08  malthrope: *can't* rather...
Jan-06-08  brankat: <malthrope> I did surprisingly well with my first Hastings bet yesterday. Betting (only) $20.00 on Eames as Black (ELO just over 2300) to beat GM Georgiev. The odds 22 - 1 :-)

Today I placed $50 on G.Jones.

Jan-06-08  brankat: <malthrope> <*can't* rather...> Figured as much :-)
Jan-06-08  malthrope: <brankat> - Eames is a giant killer! Who knew? :) Jones has never beat Pert before (2 losses and 1 draw)... So, I'm trying a small bet on Pert! Hope one us wins and it's not a bloody draw! ;)

  Karpova: Harikrishna-Landa 1-0
Jan-06-08  malthrope: Harikrishna just beat Landu... Hua looks to beat Marin.

...And, 'Ivanchuk vs. Radjabov' will be starting very shortly (Jako beat Inarkiev 1- to advance).

Jan-06-08  malthrope: Great timing to reach move #40 for Korchnoi! :) 41. f4 played...

First game between Chuky and Radja - was a hard fought draw... Game #2 now underway...

Rapids Game #2 live... //

Jan-06-08  slomarko: thanks god navara won the last one at least he won't lose tons of points.
Jan-06-08  malthrope: Chuky-Radja the 2nd game was a draw (BOOC ending)... Blitz is next - don't blink! ;)
Jan-06-08  slomarko: malthrope this is the Torneo di Capodanno page.
Jan-06-08  malthrope: <slomarko: malthrope this is the Torneo di Capodanno page.>

Oh you can *read* too how nice! ;)

Jan-06-08  geeker: I'm OK with malthrope posting ACP Rapid comments here; that event has no dedicated page. ;-)
Jan-06-08  slomarko: well why don't you ask CG to make a page about that particular event? i'm sure they will grant it.
Jan-06-08  malthrope: Korchnoi-Tiviakov - draw!

By the time makes a link to the ACP Rapids event it will be over...

Jan-06-08  Mameluk: Harikrishna won with a nice combination today. 20. Nxf8 instead of taking queen back was what Landa overlooked.
Jan-06-08  slomarko: this is the position Mameluk talks about
