|Jul-31-08|| ||Microdot: By the way, I think 34.Qf3! was a very simple and solid move I find it in less than one second.|
|Jul-31-08|| ||chancho: Dominguez blew a win against Carlsen, and today missed 36.Bxe3. Too bad for the Cuban.
It could have all been so different.|
|Jul-31-08|| ||malthrope: Well let me at the very least correct my previous error...|
Congrats to <GM Evgeny Alekseev> the new Biel Chess Champion 2008!! :))
|Jul-31-08|| ||SanChess: Painful experience for LD: disaster struck on the very last day of what was virtually a won tournament.|
Alekseev, wow! What a fighter. He is the player with most wins, including the ones over the two previous leaders. Amazing.
|Jul-31-08|| ||minasina: <e4ia: Hi Microdot ... here's best deal on new Ryb 3.0 free shipping too! http://www.wholesalechess.com/new?S... > |
I think that ChessOk has at least as good deal as Wholesale Chess can offer. Anyway here's more options ("normal"/Deep with UCI, or "normal"/Deep with Aquarium; and you can also save something if you download those programs, not get CD or DVD):
|Jul-31-08|| ||messachess: to all my readers:--no time for rnd. 10 today, sorry ;-)|
|Jul-31-08|| ||minasina: ...and of course if are interested in <Rybka> AND <Chess Assistant 10> (see my previous post)|
|Jul-31-08|| ||Ezzy: Congrats to Alekseev and Dominguez. Alekseev will take home the trophy but it's difficult to accept that they are not joint winners of Biel.|
What is more painful is that Dominguez beat Alekseev with black in their individual game. Probably more painful is that he couldn't draw his last game to win the tourney outright.
Anyway, it was an exciting tournment with some good games. I suppose everyone thought Magnus would walk away with the tournament, but these players are top notch players and will not crack easily. He still had a good tourney though, and plays such exciting chess. Still the player to be feared.
Amazing second half of the tourney by Bacrot. Pelletier was completely out of his depth this time.
I am sure Dominguez-Perez will get more chances in round robin events after this. It's good to have another name in our imagination.
I lost many chessbucks on this tourney. I had Carlsen to win with Bacrot second, and also Carlsen to score 7 points. I'm sure most people lost on this tourney.
|Jul-31-08|| ||shr0pshire: Congrats to Alekseev for not only winning the tournament, but also for his win against Carlsen.|
I think Onischuk needs to take some time off and retool his game. He is getting beat up recently on the international scene.
|Aug-01-08|| ||Slaven MNE: Evgemy played really well true the whole tournament, and he deserved to win it. |
I think Dominguez deserved second place becouse he played so passive in the 10th round against Bacrot. That cost him a first place.
|Aug-01-08|| ||jessicafischerqueen: It's the last round tonight?
Does <Leko> have a mathematical chance to win or share first still?
|Aug-01-08|| ||lostemperor: The winner of an exciting and surprising Biel 2008 final standings Prediction contest at my forum is User: Stonehenge. Runner-up is User: Aurora and Bronze goes to User: kolobok and User: whiteshark. |
