  whiteshark: Lahno blundered herself (nicely) into a mating net against Motylov.
Jan-20-12  ketchuplover: Illya might have Motylev on the ropes!

  whiteshark: <k~lover> Actually, it ended as 1st draw in group B today.
Jan-20-12  quantum.conscious: timman blundered against hari
Jan-20-12  JohnBoy: <whiteshark> - I would love to have Lahno in a mating net.
Jan-20-12  Refused: <JohnBoy: <whiteshark> - I would love to have Lahno in a mating net.>

I doubt she would <blunder> that hard (means getting that drunk). Nothing personal ofc.

On a totally unrelated note.
I am kinda disappointed by Potkin's performance. I had him as favorite to win group b after his performances at the European Championship and World Cup.

Jan-21-12  Stonehenge: 29. Bxh7+, 'nice' blunder by Timman.
Jan-21-12  ketchuplover: Illya beats Daniele :)

Seems Jan got inTimmanated!

Jan-22-12  AuN1: is harikrishna really going to be playing in the a group next year?

The tradition for winning Group B (or C) is a guarantee invitation for the next group. So, if Harikrishna wins Group B, he will ensure an invitation. Last year, McShane and Navara both won Group B, and both were invited, however McShane did not have enough time. :-\ However, even he doesn't win, he can still have a chance.

  Penguincw: < "India’s Pentala Harikrishna kept the lead in Grandmaster Group B with a 6.5/8-score after a draw with white against Holland’s Sergei Tiviakov in 63 moves from a Benko opening. He was followed at half a point by Russia’s Alexander Motylev." >

Jan-24-12  quantum.conscious: hari wins again.
Jan-24-12  ketchuplover: Illya got spanked :(
Jan-25-12  ketchuplover: hari is on fiyah
Jan-25-12  Kazzak: Vocaturo will curse his Rc8, but he should have seen the trouble he was getting himself into.
Jan-25-12  waustad: Agin the only game still going is Cmilyte's.

  Penguincw: < "India’s Pentala Harikrishna kept the lead in this group after downing Italy’s Daniele Vocaturo in 27 moves with white from a Catalan opening. It was Harikrishna’s sixth victory from the ten rounds played so far." >

  Penguincw: Sipke is squeezing Harikrishna hard.

This leaves Motylev a chance to tie it all up.

Premium Chessgames Member
  Penguincw: Reindermann beat Vocaturo with the black pieces. Now, it's a matter of how and when Ernst is going to beat the Indian.
Premium Chessgames Member
  technical draw: Harikrishna is getting whooped real bad. Mate in 17...
