  Appaz: <siamesedream> Oh, thank you! Silly me, but I'll blame it on a almost sleepless night because of an audiobook.
Nov-19-09  positionalgenius: A landmark performance from Carlsen, if you look , he swept Anand,Karjakin,Grischuk,Kramnik, places 2-5. And he didn't lose a mini-match. Big underperformances from Aronian,Morozevich and Ivanchuk.
Nov-19-09  moroloser: <positionalgenius:>About Ivanchuk and maybe Aronian, I agree with you. But Moro has never been a blitz specialist. His performance is what was expected, I guess.
Nov-19-09  ajile: The thing I like about this tournament is there were some different openings like the Dutch.
Nov-19-09  laskersteinitz: Kudos to Chessgames.com for putting up all the games!

<ajile: The thing I like about this tournament is there were some different openings like the Dutch.> Yes I agree, that is the appeal of blitz games. I'm an e4 player and during the classical tournament most of the games were 1. d4.

  PhilFeeley: What's amazing to me is that they not only broadcast all 42 rounds live, but recorded all the moves, without a pen in sight! Monroi should take notes...

This is gonna be good.

<<<Bet the house on Carlsen.>>>>

You read it here first. :-)

Nov-19-09  Udit Narayan: Congrats Carlsen!!!

As a side note, I didn't know that such girls watched chess ;)

Nov-19-09  Shams: I think one of these means "white to play" and one "black to play". Can anyone help?

  Softpaw: "belix" =white

"yepnix"= black

Nov-19-09  hand banana: it's "belih" and "chernih", if you wnat to transcribe it to english

lol @ yepnix

"p" cyrillic is actually "r", "x" is "h", and "ч" would be pronounced as "ch" in english

  Softpaw: Softpaw: <hand banana: it's "belih" and "chernih", if you wnat to transcribe it to english>

Obviously, I did NOT want to transcribe into English...just give a indication of which word meant what, not how they were pronounced. If I wanted to do the latter, I certainly wouldn't give your incorrect "chernih" transliteration. The "e" in the Russian word for "black", when written out fully, has two dots on the top of it, and is pronounced more like "yo", not "e", fyi.

Nov-20-09  laskersteinitz: <HeMateMe: Weren't the boards hooked up electronically, so all moves are stored?> Yeah I think it's those DGT boards.

  kingscrusher: Hi all

I did a couple of videos on Carlsen games with White (looking very briefly at them) :

Part 1
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lFOs...

Part 2
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IrFy...

Nov-20-09  minasina: <This event is not rated> because they played blitz. Only games with classical time control are rated.

  kingscrusher: Hi all

Thanks for the walk through!

It looked as several PGN's might be incomplete from the event.

  kingfu: I believe blitz chess is like speed reading. You get the moves without the CONTENT. This type of chess is meaningless.

  notyetagm: The chessgames.com database has <Carlsen> playing the <Queen's Gambit Accepted> only three times, all(!) in the World Blitz Championship (2009).

+2 =0 -1

Dec-02-09  virginmind: excellent organising of this event, the seating of players in groups of 3-4 tables, around which spectators can gather and watch so closely/take pictures/film, also the webcams which give us detailed impression of players and also of spectators watching. very fine conception and realisation, i believe it should remain a standard for conceiving/broadcasting blitz events. also i'm glad i can still review most of the video footage even two weeks after the event.
