|Jan-17-11|| ||ketchuplover: Can McShane run the table?|
|Jan-17-11|| ||wordfunph: <ketchup> too early..|
|Jan-17-11|| ||jamil28: There's only one Filipino in this line.. Go Wesley So. You can do it..|
|Jan-17-11|| ||notyetagm: <ketchuplover: Can McShane run the table?>|
After playing Anand, Carlsen, and Kramnik at the London Chess Classic, this must seem like a walk in the park for McShane.
I think McShane is the leading candidate right now for the Chess Oscar, IMHO, if you include last December's brilliant performance at the LCC.
Outstanding play by McShane.
|Jan-18-11|| ||Manuel G. Vergara: Philippines' GM Wesley So will be inside top 4 or at most will be the Champion in Group B!!!|
|Jan-18-11|| ||pulsar: Oh. Thanks <CG> for this page!|
|Jan-18-11|| ||goodevans: I had a bit of a moan earlier today that GC.com hadn't posted these games (Tata Steel (2011)).|
Thanks, CG.com, for adding them.
These are the games from rounds 3 and 4. I guess the games from the first 2 rounds will be added in due course.
|Jan-20-11|| ||CWQ: <notyetagm> 100% agreed upon. I recall the mid 80's when He, Magnus , King Loek, and Sergey as well as Bacrot were all in the talk of the future and greatness. I follow Luke's games with particular interest. He seems to be performing like a 2700+ these days for sure.|
|Jan-21-11|| ||zluria: The Navara - Ganguly game is fascinating. Ganguly's lost a piece, but it looks like he might be able to whip up a swift attack. Hang on, I'll check with my comp...|
|Jan-21-11|| ||zluria: Yes, Crafty says that both 17. ... Nf2+ and 17. ... Nf4 work out fine for Black. And I see that Ganguly has indeed played 17. ... Nf4. Looks dangerous for White...|
|Jan-21-11|| ||zluria: McShane wins again, going to +4. Efimenko wins too, going to +3. This chase will probably be decided one way or the other when they meet over the board.|
|Jan-21-11|| ||anandrulez: McShane is now the strongest brit chess player I guess|
|Jan-21-11|| ||rclb: In this form, Luke is pretty much on a par with Carlsen and Anand! In real life, Adams is probably stronger.|
|Jan-21-11|| ||dunkenchess: So far so good. Go GM Wesley So, go go go...|
|Jan-21-11|| ||arlevian: a very conclusive round 6... no draw in their minds. Going stronger is GM Wesley So !!!|
|Jan-21-11|| ||Penguincw: How can two players have played 7 games , while the rest have played only 6 ??|
|Jan-22-11|| ||wordfunph: So-Navara 1-0
...and GM Wesley So made it 3 in a row and tied first with Luke and Zahar with 5/7.
|Jan-22-11|| ||Peligroso Patzer: Interesting endgame in Sargissian-Nijboer.|
|Jan-22-11|| ||Peligroso Patzer: In <Sargissian-Nijboer>, the live transmission seems to have frozen after <70. f5> in this position (Black to move): |

The position is an instructive win for White.
|Jan-22-11|| ||AuN1: mcshane pretty much blew his chances for tournament victory today. guess we'll be seeing efimenko in group a next year.|
|Jan-22-11|| ||Peligroso Patzer: <AuN1: mcshane pretty much blew his chances for tournament victory today. guess we'll be seeing efimenko in group a next year.>|
The CG standings posted on this page have an extra win for Efimenko. McShane and So are actually currently tied with Efimenko for first after seven rounds on 5.0/7. Sargissian, who won his ending today (notwithstanding that the official transmission of moves only shows through 70. f5 with no result) is only half-a-point behind on 4.5/7.
|Jan-23-11|| ||shintaro go: Good job Le, for slowing down Luke.|
|Jan-23-11|| ||prensdepens: Efimenco lost to Tkachiev....
GM Wesley So is the leader of the pack!
|Jan-23-11|| ||mafe: So performance in Tata steel tournament is 2852 WOW hanep!! panalitihin mo ang momentum mo Sir Wesley ganda ng laro mo ngaun http://www.chessbase.com/newsdetail...|
|Jan-24-11|| ||arsen387: So plays cool here. If not Sargissian is going to win this, then hope it will be So.|
