|Jan-23-11|| ||pankajdaga: Do the games start now or in an hour?|
|Jan-23-11|| ||anandrulez: @pankajdaga : now , the games start 6:00 PM IST|
|Jan-23-11|| ||Eyal: Anand and Aronian are blitzing away in the Marshall. Btw:|
Aronian won a great Marshall game against Anand: Anand vs Aronian, 2008.
Aronian hasn't lost a single classical game in the Marshall in his career so far.
|Jan-23-11|| ||percyblakeney: Aronian declines the possible repetition draw starting with 19. ... Bh3.|
|Jan-23-11|| ||ArmeniaNL: pls help i have iphone canone tell me where or how can i watch the games thx in advance|
|Jan-23-11|| ||Hovik2009: <ArmeniaNL>
|Jan-23-11|| ||Hovik2009: but I don't think toyr iphone has a Java, so tht probably won't help|
|Jan-23-11|| ||vanytchouck: |
I may be wrong but i don't expect much from Carlsen vs Nakamura.
Magnus' only wins are over the dutch clients, until now, his play is far from impressive whereas the leader's in great confidence and pretty good quality of play.
May be he will go for a easy draw hoping to catch points against Grischuk or Hao who are nont in great shape.
On the other side Hikaru is sole first with + 4 and don't need to go for sepuku (no reference to Naka's origins). He also has recently stated that he wants to play more solid.
|Jan-23-11|| ||ArmeniaNL: hovik thx but my iphone does not open java do i have to install something|
|Jan-23-11|| ||Hovik2009: try
it needs an old java file, and the sight sometimes install it for you, soory man, I never had iphones
|Jan-23-11|| ||Eyal: ...And it looks like they've settled into one of those drawish Marshall endgames.|
|Jan-23-11|| ||zluria: Anand - Aronian is one of the most drawish lines in the opening books. Both players know this and have prepared the line, and they've chosen to play it anyway, so they're clearly not averse to drawing. I guess hands will be shaken in about 10 minutes.|
|Jan-23-11|| ||Hovik2009: yes it looks like Anand and Aronian are smoking the peacepipe!|
|Jan-23-11|| ||zluria: Carlsen's opening sure looks aggressive. Does this mean he's gonna go all out to win? Somehow, in GM games overly aggressive openings tend to fizzle out into drawish endgames pretty fast.|
|Jan-23-11|| ||Aspat: Why is Anand taking so much time now?|
|Jan-23-11|| ||zluria: By the way, it looks as though MVL is playing a Pirc. I once read somewhere that GMs play the Pirc when they really want to win with Black. Apparently the kind of semi open tactical positions it tends to lead to are impregnable to opening analysis (too many reasonable moves for both sides) and full of creative possibilities. I think Kramnik used it to crush Smeets in last year's Wijk, at a time when he practically always used the Petrov.|
|Jan-23-11|| ||zluria: <Aspat> Probably considering whether he should accept a draw offer.|
|Jan-23-11|| ||Aspat: <zluria> Has aronian offered draw?|
|Jan-23-11|| ||ycpl: What is the name of the opening to Lagrave played?|
|Jan-23-11|| ||Civhai: Lol, MVL noticed that Smeets is usually very well prepared and plays bad after his preparation. So he just plays strange stuff against Smeets is most certainly not prepared.|
|Jan-23-11|| ||Hovik2009: considering their past encounters, Anand better wish for Aronian offer him draw!|
|Jan-23-11|| ||Aspat: Is Anand searching for bad move for so long time?|
|Jan-23-11|| ||zluria: Hey, Shirov can win the exchange with Nc7+! Why did Gris allow this? Is he gonna go down in flames in that game? What the heck is going on there?|
|Jan-23-11|| ||Hovik2009: Shirov will be two good pawns down for that Nc7+ knight venture, so I guess he will settle for keeping his last horse|
|Jan-23-11|| ||Karpova: Novelty on move 9 by Kramnik - according to http://chessok.com/broadcast/?key=w... - 9...Bd7. He seems to have equalised.|
