Jul-23-11  ARMENIA: Well three more tough rounds and hopefully the Armenia recipe will prevail!

  Kinghunt: Say what you want about Armenia having mostly hard opponents to go, their chances look incredibly good. They only need to finish with a (match) +1 in the next three rounds to secure the title. And they're certainly capable of doing that.
Jul-23-11  Ladolcevita: <ARMENIA>
Indeed,congrats to Levon on such a brilliant victory! He is simply one of the best players in our age,I mean top5 at least,is he not? I have actually checked some of his H2H records,and what surprised me most is that he overwhelmingly leads his H2H record versus Vishy!Very few could achieve this,for sure. And moreover he seems a very kind person too,always wearing his angelic smile ever since I knew who was Aronian:)~~

You'd think a breathless Aronian fan would have known this before. Yes, he does very well against Anand. :)

Jul-23-11  Hovik2009: that is nothing compare what destined to be in near future, Armenia is planning to have atleast 20 players over 2600 on FFIDE's list, mark this post for next couple of years to come!

  chesstoplay: Hi < parmetd >,

More bad news for the US.

Yury seems to be pretty sick with bronchitis.

There will be no great US result this year.

I think that ship sailed already.

  parmetd: I am very sad to hear yury is sick! Send him my best.
Jul-23-11  Ladolcevita: <parmetd>
Sorry to hear about that.Hope he's all right.

<Shams>
Yes,I guess they should have known this very well...at all events,I believe <Armenia> should know...

Jul-24-11  Knightenprise: On a more positive note for the US team, Seirawan continues his rampage by defeating Mamedyarov, and Kamsky defeats Radjabov.
Jul-24-11  polarmis: Kamsky on the US team's preparation for China (seems to be working just now!), and also agreeing with Kasimdzhanov about draws:

Jul-24-11  chessmoron: Did Wang Hao checkmate Karjakin?

  ketchuplover: Hao did not checkmate Karjakin
Jul-24-11  chessmoron: My mistake. China wins against Russia on Hao's win.
Jul-24-11  ARMENIA: Well the standings indicate that Armenia is three points clear of second place China, who they have already played.

It seems with two rounds to go only Ukraine has mathematical chance of catching Armenia. Better yet a victory against Azerbaijan tomorrow may very well seal the deal! Lets win the tournament a round early boys or better yet, lets lose to Azerbaijan to keep things interesting:)

Jul-24-11  Kinan: Russian started very well but look at them now.

  jamesmaskell: The live feed changed the names of the players during the games (it also took a long time for the feed to come through today), switching Svidlers game with Karjakins. Did Wang Hao beat Karjakin on board 4?

  Kinghunt: Quite a successful day for Armenia. They squeezed out a victory against Hungary while their two closest rivals lost. A single draw in their next two matches will probably be enough for first, while two draws or a win will guarantee it.

  Thanh Phan: <Yury seems to be pretty sick with bronchitis.> Sorry to learn of that ~ Hope recover well also soon
Jul-24-11  alekhinist: Seirawan really is on fire!
Jul-24-11  pulsar: It's good to see Seirawan doing extremely well. Maybe this year's theme is <The Older Generation Strikes Back>. ;)

  JointheArmy: Seirawan's performance is absolutely amazing in this tournament.
Jul-24-11  bronkenstein: The Russians need Kramnik desperately , Karjak is way out of form (or simply too young and unexperienced) to hold top board it seems.

This way the competition lost all the intrigue already 2 rounds before the end.

  parmetd: it would be nice to see chessgames list the team scores here too
Jul-24-11  ARMENIA: Congratulations to Uruguay for winning the record 15th Copa America title!

I wish you all could see the sea of blue shirts running and chanting as we speak in the Parke Independencia in Montevideo.

It was a beautiful game; a well deserved victory by Uruguay but Paraguayan fans should also celebrate since they now can mark a new achievement in their futbol history by reaching the final.
