Mar-26-11  virginmind: yeah, 34.Rxf7 was sweet by nisi. bravo again for parligras for defeating another strong gm. and, to make it three, lupulescu also won today!
Premium Chessgames Member
  parmetd: I cannot believe Savchenko played a budapest.... he got crushed like an amateur. What a pathetic showing for a player that was on 4/4.
Mar-26-11  notyetagm: <parmetd: I cannot believe Savchenko played a budapest.... he got crushed like an amateur. What a pathetic showing for a player that was on 4/4.>

Next time he will play a *real* opening in a critical game, not that Budapest crap.

Mar-26-11  notyetagm: <virginmind: yeah, 34.Rxf7 was sweet by nisi. bravo again for parligras for defeating another strong gm. and, to make it three, lupulescu also won today!>

Yes, what a shot that was by Nisipeanu.

Premium Chessgames Member
  HeMateMe: Judit one point back at 4/5 with 3 wins and 2 draws.
Mar-27-11  jon01: IM Wirig is holding the French flag high: all wins and a draw with the first seed Svidler.
Mar-27-11  kurtrichards: much chessbucks were won and lost on amber 2011...the question is...would chessgames bookie feature some games for us (chessbookie addicts) to bet on?
Mar-27-11  kurtrichards: i mean EICC 2011 games... :)
Mar-27-11  cadwallon: <notyetagm: Next time he will play a *real* opening in a critical game, not that Budapest crap.> You'd like what Zherebukh is playing against Khairullin:

Mar-27-11  znsprdx: check this out!!!

Round: 05

White: Papin, Vasily 2569

Black: Smeets, Jan 2660

Date: Sat Mar 26 2011

Mar-27-11  jon01: Looks like Polgar miscalculated and she is a piece down against Ragger now. However, there could be some counterplay due to Ragger's king safety.
Mar-27-11  polarmis: Sergey Shipov is reporting from the European Championship (where he's acting as a coach). Here are his first impressions:

And then later his comments on Svidler playing 1. g3:

Mar-27-11  virginmind: normally lupulescu(white) should win today:

click for larger view

and with the draws of nisipeanu(already) and parligras(probably soon)

the romanian trio should be at 5 points each after the 6th round. not bad!

Mar-27-11  AuN1: thanks polarmis.
Mar-27-11  The Rocket: when does the next fide list come out?
Mar-27-11  LDJ: <The Rocket> The next FIDE rating list will be published May 1st.
Premium Chessgames Member
  Appaz: Great reads, <polarmis>. You are providing a valuable service for the chess world. Shipov is one few persons making chess the intellectual game it should be, and I could never imagine reading is stuff in written originally in English without his brilliant Russian references.

His defense of 1.g3 from Svidler removes any objections of "disrespecting your opponent" when playing offbeat openings.

Premium Chessgames Member
  Landman: On the list of things I never thought I'd ever get to say: "Hmm, looks like Peter Svidler's in 73rd place."
Premium Chessgames Member
  beenthere240: Polgar kicked her opponent around the board today. She was playing a full rook down for a while and just poured it on unmercifully.
Mar-28-11  BobCrisp: Sounds kinky.
Premium Chessgames Member
  Penguincw: Well Vladimir Potkin springs out and becomes to leader,for now.He should'not feel very comfortable though.There are 18 players within half a point of him.
Premium Chessgames Member
  Domdaniel: Are there still people who think 1.g3 is eccentric or weird? Like 1.Nf3, it almost always transposes - to a King's Indian Attack, or Fianchetto Grunfeld, Reti, English, etc. Even a Sicilian, if you swing that way.

When GMs play the Budapest, or anything similar, then those who are not (yet?) GMs might usefully pay attention.

OK. That's my routine rant about people who don't appreciate the finer points of non-mainline openings. Now I'll go back to looking for examples of the French with 3...h6. Or 2.h3 against the Dutch. Anything, really, but the usual tedium.
