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

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.

  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.

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.

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.

<virginmind>,
The set-up of the tables was interesting with a circular fence around each one - close enough to allow spectators to view the games from all angles, and to allow easy access from game to another. Maybe this should be standard for future events?

I am almost certain they had increments: 3 2 or 4 2 was probably the time control. Maybe even 5 2.

  tamar: 2 second increment, you can easily check this out on youtube

Yes, the 2-second increment compensates for the time need to physically move the piece and hit the clock.
