|Oct-19-11|| ||tamar: Morozevich is giving a clinic on the two bishops.|
|Oct-19-11|| ||moroloser: way to go, Moro! Tomashevsky drew hours ago, he's the clear winner and still wants to squeeze win number 6 out of this one. Roiz playing well and trying to obtain draw number 11(!).|
|Oct-19-11|| ||kellmano: <tamar> and what a clinic it is.|
Most unMorozevichlike to play for win when the tournament is already decided. He couldn't be bothered to do it when he needed to win to stay in the world cup.
|Oct-19-11|| ||sisyphus: Roiz tosses it in after 59. Moro wins the tourney with 8.5/11, one and a half ahead of Tomashevsky.|
|Oct-19-11|| ||moroloser: Moro the "zugzwang guru"! 1-0 and +6. I'm so happy about his comeback, this time I've really thought he would have never make it back in the top 10.|
|Oct-19-11|| ||paavoh: Beautiful overall performance by Morozevich - congrats to him!|
|Oct-19-11|| ||okba12: tell us how mutch rating point Moro gets - and how mutch is the price?|
|Oct-19-11|| ||chessgames.com: We have news that Nikita Vitiugov withdrew after becoming ill with laryngitis, bronchitis, etc. We do hope he's feeling better soon.|
This sad news is fortunate news for his opponents Peter Leko and Ni Hua, who both received one point byes.
|Oct-19-11|| ||haztivel: Morozevich stands now at 2762,4 live rating (no.9 in world) and gained almost 70 points from july's list when he had 2694|
|Oct-19-11|| ||KKDEREK: Congratz Moro. Back to the top 10! I'm eager to seem him invited again to all top tourneys.|
|Oct-19-11|| ||Blunderdome: Tomashevsky has made huge gains too.|
|Oct-19-11|| ||KKDEREK: Indeed. Tomashevski at 2740+..Amazing..Closing to the 2750+ club..
Maybe the next top 10?|
|Oct-19-11|| ||redwhitechess: nobody can defeat Shirov! and yes, welcome back to planet Moro.|
|Oct-19-11|| ||checkmateyourmove: Tal is flipping over in his grave this week knowing his pupil has no wins or losses through round 11...haha|
|Oct-19-11|| ||visayanbraindoctor: <nuwanda: i would not be surprised if Moro outplays Roiz from this position. but on the other hand, with the tournament victory in his bag, maybe he just calls it a day>|
Even with the tournament victory ensured, fighting Moro played out the end game, a lesson in handling two bishops. He is proving to the chess world that he is back.
|Oct-19-11|| ||twinlark: It's a striking feature of this contest that the first five were all outright place getters (not shared), a unusual occurrence in a tournament with such a limited field.|
|Oct-19-11|| ||HeMateMe: Moro is No. 9 on live ratings list.|
|Oct-20-11|| ||siggemannen: twinlark: that is indeed very interesting and good of you to notice!|
|Oct-20-11|| ||Whitehat1963: Is Shirov TRYING to draw every game?|
|Oct-23-11|| ||kardopov: A class act by Morozevich. Let's see how he'll fare against the other bigwigs. When will be his next tournament?|
|Oct-23-11|| ||Rook e2: Nice to see Moro win this.. Many Scotch games here also!|
|Oct-24-11|| ||Marmot PFL: Looks like Leko is back at his peak form, winning a game or two, drawing the rest and hauling in a solid 2nd or 3rd place.|
|Oct-24-11|| ||Marmot PFL: In fact one of his wins was a forfeit...|
|Oct-25-11|| ||Rook e2: <Marmot PFL: Looks like Leko is back at his peak form, winning a game or two, drawing the rest and hauling in a solid 2nd or 3rd place>
Haha nice comment!|
