  Sneaky: Karpov just played Rd1. He's short on both time and pawns.

  visayanbraindoctor: A surprise. Karpov still playing rated classical games?

I wonder if Karpov and Seirawan are playing this match for some charitable cause.

Jun-11-12  Strongest Force: What's up with this? Yaz tell Karpy he's hard-up for money?
Jun-11-12  The Curious Emblem: They have similar FIDE rating, so likely close in strength. They were also from the non-computer age, competed with a lot of the same people over the decades. I'd say they are from the same chess generation.

Why not?

  Shams: It's Rex, he gets ideas and he wants to see things happen, so he gets on the phone and gets out his checkbook and things happen.

I don't suppose Seirawan is eligible for another $400 from Korchnoi?

  offramp: Karpov is playing for the Scottish Building Federation Edinburgh and District Charitable Trust.

Sierawan is playing to raise money for the Grupo de Pesquisas Científico-UFOlógicas (Brasil).

A tied match is resolved by fisticuffs.

FIDE calls this a BANFF-playoff. (BANFF = bare-knuckle fist fight.)

Jun-11-12  RookFile: Well, Yasser should be pleased that he's even with Karpov so far.
Jun-11-12  jackpawn: <RookFile> Why should Yasser be pleased with being even? He was definitely better in both games so far.
Jun-12-12  zoren: In the post-mortem white had a lot of tricky tricks and traps in what appeared to be a dry and easily drawn endgame.

  HeMateMe: Clearly, they're just trying to go quickly to the rapids playoff.
Jun-12-12  Petrosianic: I don't know how you can say that when both games went past Move 40. I know you're trying to defend the Anand-Gelfand match here, but it's possible to do that if you don't understand the criticisms you're defending it from.
Jun-13-12  QueentakesKing: Yasser Seirawan, if I my memory serves me right, was predicted to be the next big thing from the U.S after Bobby. That just went pffftttt.tsk,tsk,tsk.

  Natalia Pogonina: The blitz was very exciting and tense! Great show by both players.

  Kinghunt: Karpov won the blitz match with a +2 score. He seems not to have lost that much of his touch after all.
Jun-13-12  LoveThatJoker: <Natalia> and <Kinghunt> I agree!

I guess you have filled your expectations by becoming a kibitzer on this site. Congratulations.

Seirawan started playing the game at age 12, so he did just fine, all things considered.

Jun-16-12  diceman: <offramp:
Karpov is playing for the Scottish Building Federation>

You'd think he would have played stonewalls?

Jun-19-12  achieve: And 6-2 wins in favor of the Black pieces.

Now is it me or is there a pattern in Blitz games that most of the time Black wins the Black-White battle? I loosely base this on my observations of the last two World Blitz championships, and of course I may be wrong.

Jun-21-12  achieve: And considering that Karpov is 10 years Yasser's elder good old Anatolya may be proud of this result.

Good call <Everett>, maybe one day this kibitzer will have a mental age of more than 12. This is still another yahoo that can hide behind his computer and spew garbage, just like the local sewer pipe.
