|Sep-30-08|| ||ksr: <sure the match will happen> till now no sponsors and Bulgaria is no no for Kamsky|
|Sep-30-08|| ||moronovich: <to all> I once saw an interview with one of the organizers of the Anand -Kramnik - match ,where he stated that the match will be a "Pay pr view".
("small"prize he said , around 5 euro pr. game).
Anyone who knows about this ?
Thanks in advance.

I dunno, but his name is an anagram for toilets.
|Sep-30-08|| ||ksr: Why are Susan and Sofia also written as Zsuzsa and Zsofi? Is this a hungarian convention?|
|Sep-30-08|| ||SetNoEscapeOn: <Ezzy>
<I will stick my neck out and predict a Kramnik win.>
For myself: Anand (surprise!) 3, Kramnik 2.
|Sep-30-08|| ||Petrosianic: I went to a Hungarian convention once. It was a real trip. A bunch of guys singing the Rákóczi march with lampshades on their heads and drinking Tokay.|
|Sep-30-08|| ||TommyC: I think Anand is favourite, but not my much. Also Anand is prone to a really bad slip-up every now and again. So maybe Kramnik won't need to try to win - he might just wait for Anand to lose one.|
|Sep-30-08|| ||Petrosianic: <For myself: Anand (surprise!) 3, Kramnik 2.>|
If we get 5 decisive games in this match, I'm going to jump for joy.

lol so that's what hitman84 meant.
|Sep-30-08|| ||DEEPERGRAY: You know what would kick ass
Imagine this the final game of the match Anand by some miracle is only behind by a point and needs a win to go to rapid chess finale
Anand plays the Sicilian dragon defense (ergo Kasparov vs Anand world championship flashback) with black pieces AND WiNs decisively!!!!!!!!!!!
Kramnik crushed by this loss then ends up losing on Anands home turf speed chess finale tie breaker. The chess crowd goes crazy and hot chicks attracted by the overload of chess phermones have no choce but to put out for chess players all around the world :). :) Anand would completley redeem himself in my eyes as fully deserving the world championship belt around his waiste (so to speak) and the chess world would flourish
I was hoping for some chess feedback
|Sep-30-08|| ||DEEPERGRAY: Did I mention chess players would score big time with super hot chicks?|
Where's the love analytical people?
|Sep-30-08|| ||Petrosianic: <DEEPERGRAY> <You know what would kick ass>|
Eh. If Kramnik loses this match, my scenario of choice would be for him to be down 6-5, and have Black in the 12th game. His greatest weakness has been an almost complete inability to win with Black, and I want to see him have to make the effort.
|Sep-30-08|| ||ravel5184: Go Kramnik!|
|Sep-30-08|| ||SetNoEscapeOn: All right: the scenario makes no sense because Kramnik would never allow an open Sicilian up a point with one game to go.|
|Sep-30-08|| ||Whitehat1963: Go Topalov! ;o)|
|Sep-30-08|| ||WannaBe: From the official site: <3.4.1 The draw for colors will be conducted during the opening ceremony. The colors shall be reversed after game 6. (The player getting the white color in game 1 shall play game 7 with the black color).>|
Game 1. White
Game 2. Black
Game 3. White
Game 4. Black
Game 5. White
Game 6. Black
Game 7. Black (again)
Game 8. White
Is my understanding correct? And why the switching of colours?
|Sep-30-08|| ||Petrosianic: I believe the reason for the switching of colours is because they don't want the same person having White the day after a rest day throughout the entire match.|
Though you'd think it would be easier to adjust the rest day schedule than to make one player have two consecutive Blacks.
This rule, combined with the forfeit, meant that Kramnik had three consecutive Blacks in the Godforsaken Elsita match, which was completely unprecedented outside of a weekend Swiss.
|Sep-30-08|| ||gazzawhite: My prediction: Anand 6.5, Kramnik 4.5 (not sure if 12th game will be played if there is a winner after 11 games).|
BTW, <ravel5184>, who are you hoping will win?
|Sep-30-08|| ||klangenfarben: <Petrosianic> <WannaBe>: What strikes me as odd about the arrangement is that whoever gets White in the first game also gets White in the last game. The only drawback is having to "suffer" as Black twice in a row mid-match. This strikes me as an unnecessary advantage given to the winner of the luck of the draw.|
|Sep-30-08|| ||WannaBe: <gazzawhite> No, game 12 will not be played. What they will do, is move the closing ceremony to an earlier date.|
|Sep-30-08|| ||Jole: klangenfarben: if I were one of the players and had a choice about it, i'd rather be the one who had white at the beginning and the end, because it gives one the better opportunity to shed first blood; and also, if need be, one has white for the last game in the scenario that the last game is important.|
I wonder if Anand has learnt from his match with Kasparov in 1995, where Kasparov dubbed him as ready for the chess, but not the pressure of the match. I imagine that he would be a lot better now, but by how much - we'll see.
|Sep-30-08|| ||Petrosianic: <klangenfarben> Yeah, I think I'd rather have White in both the first and last games. The solution causes as many problems as it solves. Better to just have one extra rest day in there somewhere.|
|Sep-30-08|| ||Resignation Trap: <Petrosianic> <<>Enjoy it while you can because the next match will almost certainly be either Anand or Kramnik against Topalov (The Dick Dastardly and Muttley of the chess world.<>> |
All I can add to that statement is: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SazB... :)
|Sep-30-08|| ||Petrosianic: Just in case I didn't make that clear, I see Danailov as Dastardly and Topalov as Muttley.|
You know, Muttley was voiced by Don "Scooby Doo" Messick.
|Sep-30-08|| ||kulangot: It's either Kamsky-Kramnik again or Kamsky-Anand for the third time.Topalov is not a match player.He lost all his seven attempts in a world championship match plays,the last two where he lost to Leko and Kramnik.|
