|Sep-28-12|| ||Shams: Past winners:
2011: Bacrot (tiebreaks over Karjakin)
|Sep-29-12|| ||HeMateMe: Ponomariov v. Short--2 games, 2000, 2005, both drawn. I thought there might be more, but maybe Short was easing out of chess, back when Pono was just getting some notoriety.|
|Sep-30-12|| ||Octavia: http://twiclive.com/silverlive.htm the games!|
|Oct-01-12|| ||HeMateMe: no kibitizing here, seems odd. Some very strong players at this one.|
wouldn't it be something if this was played in say, 1975 in the old USSR, and the winner was given the choice to be paid in a) Rubles, b) sacks of flour, or c) vodka?

|Oct-04-12|| ||Blunderdome: Looks like it got overshadowed by London and Bilbao. I'll have to check out Jakovenko's games.|
|Oct-05-12|| ||kia0708: a twist in the endgame between Bologan and Wojtaszek|
Bologan vs R Wojtaszek, 2012
BTW, I have the feeling that nobody will stop Jakovenko
|Oct-05-12|| ||waustad: Short played the Budapest gambit and ended up in a draw.|
|Oct-06-12|| ||KingV93: Great to see GM Short playing the Evans Gambit and the Budapest Gambit, it makes for interesting and exciting chess, I wish more of the top players did this.|
|Oct-06-12|| ||parmetd: Jakovenko wins with a round to go.|
|Oct-06-12|| ||Marmot PFL: Guess Jako did what he had to do, beat the tail enders and draw with the rest.|
|Oct-06-12|| ||Peligroso Patzer: <KingV93: Great to see GM Short playing the Evans Gambit and the Budapest Gambit, it makes for interesting and exciting chess, I wish more of the top players did this.>|
His results here are not likely to inspire epigones. His one win through eight rounds was playing the White side of an English Opening against Rublevsky in the first round.
|Oct-06-12|| ||fisayo123: <Kingv93> I don't think any of those gambits produce more exciting games than Sicilians and KID's for example. Short is just trying to get out of book early but the opposition here is much too strong for that tactic.|
|Oct-06-12|| ||Shams: <parmetd><Jakovenko wins with a round to go.>
How so? He's only a point clear of the field.|
|Oct-07-12|| ||Kinghunt: <Shams> And that means he was guaranteed at least a share of first. As it happened, he didn't lose his last round game, and so finished in sole first.|
|Oct-07-12|| ||parmetd: Shams... As king hunt said.
Fisayo123. Depends on your definition of exciting. I find the sicilian to be the most boring opening of chess.
|Oct-07-12|| ||goodevans: <fisayo123 ... Short is just trying to get out of book early but the opposition here is much too strong for that tactic>|
If you look at the games themselves you will see that there was nothing wrong with that "tactic" (I'd call it a strategy, myself). In almost all his games Short achieved good positions through playing unusual openings or lines. It was a succession of errors in the later stages of the games that did for him.
Short's choice of openings lead in most cases to dynamic positions with chances for both sides. If anyone were to suggest to him that he should stick to better known openings I'm pretty sure he'd ignore them and I, for one, would be happy that he did.
|Oct-07-12|| ||Everett: Ruslan ground out a nice knight ending vs Rublevsky in the final round.|
|Oct-09-12|| ||hillsong: whats happening to my man short,he is really having a bad tournament|
