  waustad: One interesting point is that I don't recall anybody mentioning how a team is doing. That has a serious effect on the games, which is why I've often thought that team tourneys should not be rated. First place recently was hanging on the 4th board game.

If you go through the tournament (and many team tournaments), the top boards usually draw and the real action is on the bottom boards. Here we aren't seeing the 12 move draws as much as in some (the word has come down). Jakovenko is a counterexample because he has only one draw on board 1.

Apr-14-12  Birthday Boy: I'm glad to see Peter Leko playing =)
Apr-14-12  Strongest Force: Bologan seems to be rolling-up Eljanov like a piece of chewing gum that's about to be thrown away.
Apr-14-12  Birthday Boy: Yeah, Bologan will win soon.

Russian Team Championships 2012

Position after 50...Rxa3

"Itís hard to imagine that a solid grandmaster could lose something like that. But he managed. And he did it without blunders, slowly, gradually." (Shipov)

See game for solution.

Dreev vs M Brodsky, 2012

Apr-14-12  Strongest Force: Bologan's 28.Rd6!! was a pretty knock out punch.
Apr-14-12  messachess: Hell0 why not include the rnd. 4 127-mover between Moro. and Carauna?
Apr-14-12  balzarius: Caruana has just gained another victory and his live rating is 2773.2 only 2 points below Karjakin's who is currently #5 in the world.
Apr-14-12  frogbert:

and from here follows some 20+ moves of pure tactics.

weird. really weird.

Apr-15-12  siggemannen: <frogbert>, which game was that?
Apr-15-12  fisayo123: Meanwhile 14 year old GM Daniil Dubov crushes Leinier Dominguez.
Apr-15-12  messachess: Am I the only one here who knows that there was a 127 move game in round 4 between Morozevich and Caruana. It's not shown on Hello? Anybody out there?
Apr-15-12  balzarius: Great game today:Svidler-Caruana
Apr-15-12  balzarius: Karjakin-Kokarev is going to be very interesting.In a sharp line of the Najdorf Poisoned Pawn,Karj has sacrificed three pawns by move 16!Very deep home preparation perhaps.
Apr-15-12  qqdos: Why did Karj turn down taking the rook 22.Bxf8?
Apr-15-12  AuN1: karjakin's position looks terrible. it will be hard for him to hold that. he seemed to have no regard for his pawns.
Apr-15-12  Arcturar: Karjakin was fricken unbelievable today! How one manages to win a position like that is beyond me...really great stuff. And once again, Moro made his opponent look like a complete patzer. :P
Apr-15-12  AuN1: yeah, that was pretty awesome from karjakin. when he started trap his opponent's king, then the rook and the knight were taking flight squares away i started wondering whether a win was possible. that was some crafty work.
Apr-15-12  frogbert: siggemannen, it was svidler-moro.
Apr-17-12  ooda: <fisayo123: Meanwhile 14 year old GM Daniil Dubov crushes Leinier Dominguez.>

His profile page says he was born on April 18th 1996 so he'll be 16 in a couple of days.

I hadn't heard of him but he's a fairly promising looking kid, the 3rd best under 16 player in the world.

Apr-17-12  pericles of athens: who won?
Apr-17-12  Layson: Tomsk won, led by Karjakin's +4 performance.
Apr-17-12  polarmis: Final report here:

  cro777: <pericles of athens: who won?> Controversial game Svidler - Morozevich ended in a daw.

GM Sergey Zagrebelny, who commented on the game live for ChessPro, expressed some doubts about whether the players had really been playing at the board.
