  MrMelad: Go Norway! :)
Aug-30-10  turbo231: The last game between Judit and Hammer was very exciting.
Aug-30-10  turbo231: Judit might lose several points after this poor performance.
Aug-30-10  crazybird: <turbo231: Judit might lose several points after this poor performance.> Really? :)
Aug-30-10  Pawnsgambit: <crazybird: <turbo231: Judit might lose several points after this poor performance.> Really? :)> thats funny!!! Imagine how many points Anand lost today, LOL

  hedgeh0g: <Judit might lose several points after this poor performance.>

It can only be expected considering her recent inactivity. On a more positive note, however, I think Hammer can be really pleased with his performance in this tournament: a win over the world #1 (almost two!) and a respectable third place considering the level of competition.

Aug-30-10  Valmy: No, Judit won't lose point it was a rapid event.
Aug-30-10  bonniekathosh: This is a rapid tournament. There are no rating points at stake here.
Aug-30-10  TheFocus: Carlsen wins. I lost Chess Bucks.
Aug-30-10  siamesedream: I know Carlsen is great player, but I must say his luck is almost equal to his talent.
Aug-30-10  play2win: How does Carlsen win? I'm sorry I'm in the dark here, only see draws vs. Anand.
Aug-30-10  zarg: Carlsen win by laziness and intuition.
Aug-30-10  play2win: Thanks zarg...perhaps a link to the game in which he displayed those two qualities? I don't see it on chessgames.
Aug-30-10  dahtah: <zarg>characteristics of a true genius.
Aug-30-10  frogbert: that game was censored. there were real possibilities of mating in the decisive encounter, and a black king and a white queen were reportedly involved.
Aug-30-10  zarg: [White "Carlsen, M."]
[Black "Anand, V."]

  LucB: The games are on the chessbom site I believe..
Aug-30-10  zarg: <characteristics of a true genius>

The best achieving geniuses are hard working.

  wordfunph: as predicted, Magnus brings home the trophy!

cheers to Magnus!

Aug-31-10  frogbert: <The best achieving geniuses are hard working.>

some even maintain that hard work and determination is the defining characteristic of a genius.

Aug-31-10  zarg: I don't think Carlsen score well at hard work.
Aug-31-10  Kazzak: I see from the Tournament Table here that someone at cg likes to tease Carlsen-fans.
Aug-31-10  frogbert: i agree that carlsen would become even more of a genius if his work ethic would've matched that of say kasparov. :o)
