|Aug-14-08|| ||wolfmaster: I don't know if this tournament was major (no 2650 except for him), but it's good to see that he can beat those 75 points below him.|
|Aug-14-08|| ||WannaBe: 'Embarassing', 45 games, and how many are Sicilian, Najdorf?? =)|
|Aug-14-08|| ||Jim Bartle: In the Polugaevsky theme tournament in 1994, all games Sicilian, not a single player tried the Polugaevsky variation. |
Polugaevsky said, "Oh well, at least it wasn't refuted."
|Aug-15-08|| ||WannaBe: <Jim Bartle> *chuckle*...|
That's one of the thing that bugs me, my pet peeve...
If you are going to have a so-and-so memorial, and there is a variation named after so-and-so, for goodness sakes, start the game at move number X!
(Of that variation, of course...) Sheesh... They are playing D10, A28, C92...

|Sep-28-08|| ||Pyke: <Duck McCluck> This has allready been posted on the Kramnik page, where it's somewhat more appropriate than on the Najdorf Memorial page. |
But of course you allready know that, since you even copied <KSR>s comment he made there, too, and not only the letter by Sergiev.
|Sep-28-08|| ||Duck McCluck: But still, it's pretty significant. I also posted it at the kibitzer's cafe.|
