  parmetd: Pretty cool.
Oct-31-12  joachimvhw: Andreikin making great progress in standing, I for one hope he makes it into top 10 - he has a kind of natural and creative attacking chess which is a real joy to watch.
Oct-31-12  Naniwazu: Thanks CB! Are you showing the games live?

  whiteshark: Huh, I noticed that my auto-translator changed <Непомнящий> into <Ahnungslos>. ??? ;)

Oct-31-12  paavoh: Game 2 drawn after quite some activity.
Oct-31-12  14DogKnight: watched Andreikin crush Nakamura in a blitz match on ICC. He is tied for second with Karjakin at 2877 in blitz, right behind Grischuk at 2923.
Oct-31-12  14DogKnight: FIDE elo, not ICC

Thansk for the headsup.

I will find the games later on ICC when I get home from work.

Oct-31-12  BadKnight: Nakamura mentioned in the recent chessvibes interview that he does not pay as much attention to blitz these days as he focuses more or classical chess, and that Andreikin might already be better than him in online blitz.
Oct-31-12  Bdellovibrio: <whiteshark> My Russian speaking friends inform me that <Ahnungslos> (oblivious, without a clue) is not a bad translation of poor Ian's фамилия.

  brankat: Let's try to get to the basics first. Does anyone here know why are they playing this match to begin with. Money? Thank You.

Literally, something like 'person who doesn't remember'.

  whiteshark: Thanks <Bdellovibrio> and <Jason Frost>! :)

A friendly chess match between <reigning Russian Champion Dmitry Andreikin> and <the 2010 champion Ian Nepomniachtchi> began at the International Center for Chess Education of RSSU on October 30.

The match is being held as part of the Yuri Razuvayev Memorial, organized by the “Chess hopes of Russia” school.

The match will continue until November 5, with a day off on November 2. The games will begin at 15:00 Moscow time. Six games will be played under FIDE time control: 90 minutes for the first 40 moves followed by 30 minutes for the rest of the game with an addition of 30 seconds per move starting from move one.

Furthermore, if the match ends in a draw in less than 30 minutes, another game of rapid chess will be started after a short break, lasting 15 minutes with 10 seconds added after each move. International Grand Master Sergei Shipov will provide the commentary.

Nov-01-12  waustad: Game 3 drew. It was a rather interesting ending with 3 outside pawns on the bc files for a knight, arising from a Caro Kann.
Premium Chessgames Member
  whiteshark: The middlegame had an interesting material imbalance, too. ♕♙♙:♖♖ with 3 white passed pawns on the queenside, but an open position around his ♔.
Nov-01-12  fisayo123: Two great attacking geniuses. Nice match
Nov-01-12  Jambow: <Andreikin might already be better than him in online blitz.>

I heard Nakamura say it too <BadKnight> and unlike some people here I think blitz is a good indication of raw talent which bodes well for him imho.

Nov-03-12  14DogKnight: I see them analyzing on chesstv...what was the result of the game?
Nov-03-12  joachimvhw: Draw in 40 moves, both happy to take off pieces, less of a spectacular draw than the previous day, seems to me.
Nov-03-12  Atking: A great match. I'm surprised there is only few chess fans on this page.
Premium Chessgames Member
  HeMateMe: Chicks dig the decisive results.
Nov-03-12  Arcturar: It's nice to see Andreikin getting closer and closer to the top. It seems that he could potentially be the top Russian player to fill the void after Kramnik, unless Grischuk manages to further up his game.
