Mar-05-09  Jafar219: Radjabov is winning now.
Mar-05-09  Kaspykov: The round #13-14 will be so exciting now that everyone can play for the 1st place.


Grischuk vs Anand

its now or never for Anand :D

Mar-05-09  jair: On a day like this Magnus is as good as anybody. 6. Be2 and 8. a4 demand a lot of patience to play against. Credit to Grischuk for coming out fighting.
Mar-05-09  mindanalyzer: yes, he is. I dont know what the heck is wrong with Dominguez
Mar-05-09  shycuban2002: oh my god!! what's going on with leinier in this tournement??
Premium Chessgames Member
  Geronimo: Grischuk has nothing to apologise for. He played well against Carlsen, but had a few slightly questionable moves. Let's see tomorrow if he's burned to fast and too hot to make it to the end in first place. Competition is wide open now, with Magnus and Ivanchuk just a half point behind with two to play. Certainly Chucky preserved his strength tonight against Vishy. Their game was as close to a mutual draw from about move 3. It could still go any way.
Mar-05-09  Kaspykov: the "c" pawn is a monster in Radja/Dominguez :x
Mar-05-09  Kaspykov: <shycuban2002: oh my god!! what's going on with leinier in this tournement??>

hey, im going to cuba really soon, is there any good chess club or something ?

Mar-05-09  muradov: Radja +0.73, up, up, up! :)
Mar-05-09  ex0duz: Time scramble now.. 5 min for radja and 4 min for lenier for 6 moves.. not looking good for lenier
Mar-05-09  Jafar219: <Kaspykov: <shycuban2002: oh my god!! what's going on with leinier in this tournement??> hey, im going to cuba really soon, is there any good chess club or something ?>

I think it is not right time to ask such question :)

  Geronimo: I'm very upset that I have to travel for the next four days and will not have access to e-mail or internet in the evenings. I've been following this tournament like a madman, but won't know the results until I get home on monday night. Grrrr.
Mar-05-09  shycuban2002: bro....esta creo q la perdio tambien!! aunq mas perdia q la q tenia con aronian y la saco del congelador.... vamos a ver q pasa
Mar-05-09  Kaspykov: <I think it is not right time to ask such question :)>


Radja is pushing for the win :o

Mar-05-09  muradov: <Geronimo>

You're going to another planet? :) 4 days trip..

Premium Chessgames Member
  Geronimo: <Muradov>, I'm going to Djibouti. Honestly. No joke. And no internet.
Mar-05-09  Jafar219: <Geronimo> Your avatar is great.
Mar-05-09  Kaspykov: Radja ganará :x
Premium Chessgames Member
  Geronimo: Thank you, <Jafar219>.
Mar-05-09  Mulyahnto: deep breath for Radjabov and Dominguez
Mar-05-09  muradov: <Geronimo> A country I've never heard before, just checked out on Wiki, looks like a nice place :) Have a safe trip!

Mar-05-09  shycuban2002: thanks God Radja made a "small" blunder now the position is almost equal
Mar-05-09  muradov: Radja dissapointed Rybka in time trouble, with 39. Rc4, Rybka suggested 39. Rf3, with +0.71, now it's +0.41.

Any 'master' opinion whether this is enough to win? :-/

Premium Chessgames Member
  Jim Bartle: Gonna make things happen there, Geronimo, gonna shake Djibouti?
Premium Chessgames Member
  Geronimo: I can't say a shake, but I might see a shiek...
