Dec-14-11  Bdellovibrio: <kevinatcausa> ha! Interesting spelling of V. Cmilyte's choice ("Mishel Fuko"); I liked Ivanchuk's and Karjakin's choices the most.
Dec-14-11  rapidcitychess: <frogbert>

During London classic.

Dec-14-11  chessmoron: It look like PGN for Blindfold games (Round 1-2) are on the official website.

  Caissanist: Chuky's results are never a surprise, no matter what they are.
Dec-15-11  King Death: < Caissanist: Chuky's results are never a surprise, no matter what they are.>

If we can say the same for Nakamura because of his high variance style of play, I can't figure out why Ivanchuk's go this way, even all of his experience and knowledge.

Dec-15-11  matebay: why is Wesley So not invited? Maybe they're afraid.
Dec-15-11  Penguincw: No new games?
Dec-15-11  fisayo123: <why is Wesley So not invited? Maybe they're afraid.> Most if not all the players in this field are stronger than So.

... except so and so...

Dec-15-11  M.D. Wilson: Shocking, Chucky!
Dec-16-11  serfudge94: what happen to Chucky?!

  virginmind: yeah, not quite his best tournament ever...
Dec-16-11  edbermac: <matebay: why is Wesley So not invited? Maybe they're afraid. >

Oh yeah, they're afraid of Wesley So-so like they're afraid of Magnus Carlsen.

Dec-17-11  matebay: Wes will run over this field...leave them breathless!
Dec-17-11  matebay: They would not know what hit them.

Leaving them dead on their track...

shame to the organizers...

failing to recognize the rice kernel from the chaff.

Dec-17-11  matebay: Just consider this. In the blitz event, Lagrave ruled supreme:

http://sportaccord2011.fide.com/tou...

Yet, in the ICC, Wes spanked his butt winning 8 games, drawing 2 and graciously giving Lagrave one solitary win for his efforts.

Dec-18-11  matebay: and this page barely made 2. If Wesley was included here, it could be 102.
Dec-18-11  Everett: <matebay> Maybe it was his 3.5/6 runner-up finish in the SEAG chess championships vs .... (wait for it) 2384-rated competition.

http://ratings.fide.com/tournament_...

Pretty underwhelming, this <rice kernel>.

Dec-18-11  King Death: <Everett> What kind of guy are you anyway, bringing up unpleasant facts to <mateboy>? The only name I even recognized among his opponents was Megaranto. It's true that this is just a poor result among many good ones, but the organizers were afraid of having him, according to his fanboy? Give us all a break.
Dec-18-11  Everett: <King Death> I know I'm terrible. I simply wish his fans were as objective and accurate with their kibitzing as Wesley So is regarding the assessment of chess positions.
Dec-18-11  Phorqt: Looking back over his last several years, it seems that more often than not, when Chucky does this poorly it means he's just about due for another knock-out performance. When does he play next? Of course unlike many other top-level players it's certain to be soon.

Terrible and discriminatory...for you left out an important fact. Wes blitzes the opposition 9 zip for gold and a 3183 rating performance http://chess-results.com/tnr60057.a...

You are a man of little faith...

  lost in space: Wang Hao? Never heart!
Dec-19-11  Everett: <you are a man...> at least you got one thing right.

  technical draw: Ivanchuk sometimes just goes to a tournament for the appearance fee. Hey, the guy has to make a living, no?
