|Oct-05-11|| ||HeMateMe: Does Canada have a lot of Baltic immigrants?|
|Oct-05-11|| ||cuppajoe: <Does Canada have a lot of Baltic immigrants?>|
The Vancouver Keres memorial is so named because Paul Keres played (and won) his last tournament here.
But to answer your question: probably.
|Oct-05-11|| ||redwhitechess: they play a draw tribute to Karpov! come on, this is not World Cup or candidate match..... put in you King Gambit!|
|Oct-06-11|| ||Skakalec: We also have Vasja Pirc, Milan Vidmar and Bora Kostic memorial in Yougoslavia.
No doubt, we will get Gligoric memorial, hopefully not so soon.|
|Oct-06-11|| ||Honza Cervenka: <HeMateMe: Have to make Kjarkan a favorite. How many "memorial" tournaments are there in the former USSR republics? There are Tal, Botvinnik, Alekhine, Petrosian memorials. Any others? Keres memorial?> There are also some Chigorin memorials.|
|Oct-06-11|| ||Strongest Force: I hope fab (who loved to argue with me at ICC) wins.|
|Oct-08-11|| ||sisyphus: Bacrot is a clear exchange up on Caruana after 40.|
|Oct-08-11|| ||sisyphus: Bacrot finally figured out a win, and Caruana resigned after 82 moves. Bacrot was down to less than a minute (with a 10 second increment), while Caruana had almost 15.|
|Oct-08-11|| ||Fusilli: Will black ever win?|
|Oct-09-11|| ||kurtrichards: <...and Caruana resigned after 82 moves...> or was it 77 moves of Gruenfeld, Exchange var.? That doesn't matter anyways...Bacrot-Caruana 1-0...c,")|
|Oct-09-11|| ||Edmontonchessclub: Too bad they don't have Sophia rules in place. Too many short draws. If they just disallowed draw offers, as in Bilbao, we would have more interesting games and more decisive results (or at least the draws would be played out).|
|Oct-09-11|| ||Gypsy: Laznicka-Bacrot draw is not yet reflected in the x-table, it seems.|
|Oct-10-11|| ||Gypsy: All fixed. Thx cg.|
|Oct-12-11|| ||paavoh: @Fusilli: <Will black ever win?> I guess they all imitate Karpov, secure draw with Black, try to win with White :-)|
|Oct-12-11|| ||waustad: Excuse my trouble reading the table on the official page but I'm trying to fight through Cyrillic. I do not speak Russian, but I looked at some chess stuff so I think I've got the names right. Last round:|
Rublevsky v Bruzon
Efimenko v Bacrot
Motylev v Caruana
Onischuk v Karjakin
Jakovenko v Laznicka
|Oct-12-11|| ||Blunderdome: That can't be right, as some of those players have already met.|
Motylev - Karjakin
Efimenko - Bacrot
Onischuk - Caruana
Jakovenko - Laznicka
Rublevsky - Bruzon
Are the matchups that will happen, assuming they plan to make a round robin of it. Can't say for sure if I have the colors right, though.
|Oct-13-11|| ||WiseWizard: Are they all playing to draw with Black? Lol What a joke. A bunch of sheep.|
|Oct-13-11|| ||dx9293: I know a lot of fans don't like it, but I like this traditional-style tournament. Thank goodness the Sofia rules and especially the 3-1-0 silliness haven't invaded Russia.|
Short draws and playing to win with White, draw with Black is how international tournaments have been played for decades. I don't think that should change simply because some fans will be "bored." That's their problem. Bravo to the organizers for keeping tradition alive.
|Oct-13-11|| ||WiseWizard: I didn't say that out of boredom, I enjoy laughing at followers, the sheep who can't think for themselves, they see Kramnik drawing with Black and now they all have to do it too. It's hilarious, very amusing. One player says this is the right way to do it! And thousands of sheep follow blindly. He changes his mind and they all follow again. I would love to go th tournament hall and laugh at every one of them.|
|Oct-13-11|| ||kurtrichards: <...And thousands of sheep follow blindly.> I guess those thousands are all colored white. What about the black(s)? :)|
|Oct-13-11|| ||waustad: Trying to read Russian, I mixed up Caruana and Karjakin. I should have noticed the second 'k'. Right now, Bacrot has a chance to catch Karjakin.|
|Oct-13-11|| ||waustad: Bacrot won. I'm not even going to try the site to figure out tiebreaks. Interestingly, both wins today were with black.|
|Oct-13-11|| ||Illogic: According to @2700Chess twitter, Bacrot won the tournament on tiebreaks. I believe this is his second time winning the event.|
|Oct-13-11|| ||paavoh: Yes, Bacrot had a joint #1 with Bologan in 2005, beating Grischuk btw.|
6th Poikovsky Karpov Tournament (2005)
|Oct-14-11|| ||laskersteinitz: So happy for Bacrot!! Felicitations mon ami!|
