|Jan-12-09|| ||dbquintillion: Watch out for Carlsen, I say.|
|Jan-12-09|| ||bharatiy: I hope Sasi plays Corus A next time and hope Anand will have time for it also. Rare appearance of two Indians may be seen next year. Cant wait to follow all those games.|
|Jan-12-09|| ||AliMatok: Watch out for Philippine's Wesley, we say.|
|Jan-12-09|| ||shintaro go: Aronian and Carlsen are favorites to win Group A.|
|Jan-12-09|| ||NakoSonorense: Moro's gonna take it home.|
|Jan-12-09|| ||unfforce: Watch out for my favorite Morozevich|
|Jan-12-09|| ||Freakio: Write off Ivanchuk at your peril :)|
|Jan-12-09|| ||rangek: awaiting rajabov playing KID!|
|Jan-12-09|| ||hedgeh0g: Awaiting Ivanchuk playing French / Sicilian/ English / Spanish / Russian, etc. :P|
|Jan-12-09|| ||MarkusKann: Amazing tournament, Go Carlsen and Radjabov!|
|Jan-12-09|| ||waustad: I know what days games are, but I haven't seen the time. If I read the chart right the Grandmaster sections start play on Saturday. Does anybody know when?|
|Jan-12-09|| ||bharatiy: <waustad> check this out http://www.coruschess.com/informati...|
|Jan-12-09|| ||KKDEREK: To see a player like Nigel Short (2663) on Corus B and Loek Van Wely (2625) on Corus A is a frickin joke.|
Yep..Social skills are very important nowadays.
|Jan-12-09|| ||shr0pshire: I have high hopes for Kamsky in my heart, but my mind tells me not to expect a few losses due to the fact he doesn't want to show any opening prep before his match with Topalov. |
But I enjoy watching most of the field when they are in a fighting mood: Aronian, Carlsen, Radjabov, Ivanchuk, Karjakin, Stellwagan.
We will see what the mood of the players is.
|Jan-12-09|| ||toastie: I got a strange feeling that Mickey Adams will win this.|
|Jan-12-09|| ||shintaro go: I got a strange feeling that no Dutch player will win this.|

Wesley So in the C group is rated around the same as the three Dutchmen in group A. Group B also features 2004 FIDE WC Kasimdzhamov, as well as 2700+ rated Sasikiran and Vallejo-Pons. Corus A is no longer on the same level as Linares.
|Jan-12-09|| ||Eti fan: The official site is http://coruschess.com/
http://tournaments.chessdom.com/cor... will have live commentary, I suppose chesspro will also have their Russian commentators.
Cool photos as usual http://www.fredlucas.eu/gallery/agr...
|Jan-13-09|| ||dumbgai: I honestly wouldn't mind seeing Van Wely, Smeets and Stellwagen get utterly crushed; it might give the organizers a wake-up call. With Kramnik, Leko, Svidler and Gelfand not playing they're less likely to get 15-move pity draws too.|
|Jan-13-09|| ||Ipecac: Van Wely????!!!!!!! In mah Corus????????
|Jan-13-09|| ||Billy Vaughan: I predict:
- Adams gets a positive score.
- Karjakin underperforms
- Ivanchuk draws just as much as last Corus
- Van Wely is not bottom-feeder
- Carlsen, Aronian, Radjabov, and Ivanchuk are most likely to win, in that order.
|Jan-13-09|| ||arsen387: Aronian is the winner of last 2 Corus tours. How many players have such achievement? Which is the longest streak of winning Wijk an Zee in consecutive years? I guess Kasparov, but how many years in a row? Does any1 have imformation about that Corus statistics?|
|Jan-13-09|| ||marcwordsmith: I predict Karjakin has a surprisingly strong performance. Maybe even wins.|
|Jan-13-09|| ||iron maiden: <Which is the longest streak of winning Wijk an Zee in consecutive years?> Kasparov won three clear first places in a row from 1999-2001. The official site has an archive of past results at http://www.coruschess.com/tournamen....|
|Jan-13-09|| ||arsen387: <iron maiden> thank you. I hope Aronian will win this one as well and repeat Kasparov's achievement. And also from that site I see that Anand won Corus 5 times. Outstanding!!|
