|Dec-29-11|| ||zluria: What is this event about? Is it a qualification event or something?|
|Dec-29-11|| ||TheRavenPK: how is this played? two players, two boards, two clocks?
when it's the same player to move on both boards, he loses time on both clocks?
does this tournament count in ELO?
I like these attempts to make chess more interesting. good move FIDE.
|Dec-29-11|| ||HeMateMe: This is certainly interesting. I remember playing a variant of this with friends, when we had enough time to play until 5:00 am.|
How do you suppose they manage the clocks? Perhaps the players are on the honor system to only look at one board, when the clock for that one board is running? Or, is there one clock for both boards?
If you are losing on one board, maybe you ignore that board, conceding that game, and try to win on the other board?

Very interesting. Could expect some unexpected results.
|Dec-29-11|| ||cbpatzer: They play 2 games simultaneous and it is knockuot
|Dec-29-11|| ||waustad: In the live broadcast they have Naiditsch castling 0-0 twice in the same game. The king disappeared.|
|Dec-29-11|| ||beenthere240: There don't seem to be a lot of draws. Maybe you can transfer a piece from one board to another.|
|Dec-29-11|| ||waustad: They fixed it.|
|Dec-29-11|| ||fgh: My (former) chess teacher once had me play 5 blitz games with him simultaneously. I lost all of them on time.|
|Dec-29-11|| ||waustad: What do they do here for a tiebreak? Play bughouse?|
|Dec-29-11|| ||hellopolgar: well...let's say i am playing two games against Anand at the same time, I could just copy his moves and the score will be 1-1 in the end...|
|Dec-29-11|| ||hand banana: yeah, if one players desires to copy all opponent's moves, there is no way to stop that..|
|Dec-29-11|| ||Harvestman: Of course, copying your opponent's moves gives you no more than a tie. These players might want to try for more, given the knockout format.|
Yes, you can do it, but it doesn't achieve anything.
|Dec-29-11|| ||parmetd: Very interesting idea!|
|Dec-29-11|| ||frogbert: seems the best players win here too. :o) despite the format.|
|Dec-30-11|| ||Everett: < The real twist is this: matches will consist of two games of classical chess played simultaneously, an old idea by David Bronstein. >|
Bronstein offered this idea in the '70s, and then had three matches in the '80s with this format.
'82 Tal on 8 boards, Tal won 5-3
Of the other two, Suetin was one of them, forget the other.
|Dec-30-11|| ||SteinitzLives: Some of the players in this tourney seem to have very low ratings, e.g.|
Juan Maria Santos Martinez vs I Zufiria
Or am I missing something?
|Jan-02-12|| ||Penguincw: I lost track of who's still in it.|
|Jan-02-12|| ||Everett: Seems that Feller's computer fed him the wrong lines vs Ponomariov today, or maybe he had it going for the other game...|
|Jan-03-12|| ||voratco: <Everett: Seems that Feller's computer fed him the wrong lines vs Ponomariov today, or maybe he had it going for the other game...>|
|Jan-03-12|| ||romison: laznicka si on killing spree|
|Jan-04-12|| ||Illogic: Final Four: Laznicka, Moiseenko, Dominguez Perez, Volokitin|
|Jan-04-12|| ||pajaste: the copy-catter problem is somewhat smaller, if the first moves are done without seeing both boards at the same time. but of course one may want to play some openins from both sides.|
|Jan-04-12|| ||Gypsy: <hellopolgar: well...let's say i am playing two games against Anand at the same time, I could just copy his moves and the score will be 1-1 in the end...>|
You'd lose both games ... on time.
|Jan-05-12|| ||Shams: These games are not rated, correct?|
