|Jan-30-10|| ||jurado96: it happen to korchnoi against juan
carlos gonzalez he lost it and lost the game after having a piece up when this happens you are supposed to play your best and leave the personal feeling
for after the game
|Jan-30-10|| ||machess: Is this So's worst game ever?|
|Jan-30-10|| ||dakgootje: <machess: Is this So's worst game ever?>|
Maybe worst move, but certainly not worst game; he had a winning advantage at certain points.
|Jan-30-10|| ||MaxxLange: So played a bad mistake, it happens to everyone|
|Jan-30-10|| ||Everyone: <MaxxLange> How do you know?|
|Jan-30-10|| ||MaxxLange: I was taking the position above, where SO should have played RxN, as true|
I do not "know"
|Jan-31-10|| ||Troller: Negi-Giri drawn. Congrats to Giri!|
|Jan-31-10|| ||achieve: Next year the A-group awaits Giri, whooo.... Congrats Anish!|
|Jan-31-10|| ||seagull1756: Giri wins! - and online blitz addicts can happily continue doing what they are doing: in his interview Anish said playing 3 min games was his main form of training on his way to becoming a GM|
|Jan-31-10|| ||dakgootje: Congrats Anish!! :D
It is going to be interesting to see how he will do next year in group A, obviously it is a lot tougher.. A well, a year to improve :)
|Jan-31-10|| ||wolfmaster: Well, Giri will play at Corus A next year... He should be at least 2650 and still improving.|
|Jan-31-10|| ||manakin: Anyone knows what's this kid's rating performance and live rating?|
|Jan-31-10|| ||Bdellovibrio: Will Naiditsch also appear in Group A next year?|
|Jan-31-10|| ||pinoy gramps: seagull is mysql's boyfriend|
|Jan-31-10|| ||rafnoc22: Against Anna..I think Wesly So had better winning chances had he played #32.Rc2( cover his K from rook check), so that #32..Rbd7 #33.Qc3...R7d3 #34.Qc4ch (force exchange of queens)thus weakenning black's powerful attacks.|
|Jan-31-10|| ||rangek: Giri's performance rating is 2760 I think.|
|Jan-31-10|| ||Thrajin: I'm very disappointed with Nisipeanu's performance. He's one of my favorites and I thought he would certainly get more than one win in this group.|
|Feb-01-10|| ||Bradah: <Bdellovibrio: Will Naiditsch also appear in Group A next year?>|
Probably not, but my bet is that group A will include Giri, Van Wely and Smeets.:o)
|Feb-01-10|| ||WannaBe: So, with relegation, the winner moves up to Group A, and losers moves to Group C (??)|
|Feb-01-10|| ||Billy Vaughan: That means van Wely doesn't move to group B ;)|
|Feb-01-10|| ||virginmind: congratulations to anish giri!
...and disappointment for nisipeanu's weak performance.
|Feb-01-10|| ||mysql: <pinoy gramps: seagull is mysql's boyfriend>|
Now you're acting gay also? :o)
|Feb-01-10|| ||timhortons: ok giri won, but im not so well satified by it since he just swindle that win against wesley.|
anyways theres more game to come between this two lad, i hope wesley and nige play in corus A next year, though i doubt of wesleys chances, he might be back in corus B, or if he show great chess this year im sure they wont hesitate to invite him in corus A.
|Feb-02-10|| ||falso contacto: So was playing top form chess all year long. He definitely could have the chance of returning. I thought that all the enthusiasm was just chauvinism but the guy can really play.|
|Feb-02-10|| ||falso contacto: Disappointing performance by Parimaryan i think.|
