|Apr-09-14|| ||Arcturar: Yup, Grischuk is totally killing it. He just beat Vitiugov (who is no pushover) and has 3/3.|
|Apr-09-14|| ||Refused: Vitiugov lost a pawn in the opening. Grischuk was able to hold onto that pawn and converted it. Thus Grischuk has now 3/3 and has passed Caruana, Kramnik and Anand on the live rating list. Thus there he is #3 now.|
|Apr-09-14|| ||Everett: Not bad for a poker player.|
|Apr-09-14|| ||Appaz: Grischuk climbs to #3 in the live rating. Worlds strongest smoker!|
|Apr-10-14|| ||Conrad93: Can Grischuk break the 2800+ barrier this year?|
|Apr-10-14|| ||Refused: Grischuk with an easy draw today against Alekseev. Neither side seemed to be in a real fighting mood today.|
|Apr-11-14|| ||Refused: It looks like Grischuk is going for 4.5/5.
Weird looking opening, and now he has Tomashevsky in the ropes.
|Apr-11-14|| ||Refused: Jobava is also enjoying an excellent tournament. Today he was able to beat Svidler.|
|Apr-11-14|| ||optimuswise: Jobava also in great form! He has 4./5. by beating Jakovenko, Kamsky and Svidled. Impressive!|
|Apr-11-14|| ||mindanalyzer: Dominguez 4/5 too, #10 in live ratings|
|Apr-11-14|| ||mindanalyzer: I have no idea why he is playing 3rd board. I don't think that either Svidler or Vitiugov are stronger than him, ... but they know better ... I guess|
|Apr-11-14|| ||john barleycorn: Peter Leko is overseen. 4/5 with 3 wins and 2 draws is a respectable result.|
|Apr-11-14|| ||Arcturar: Grischuk's on fire! If he keeps up this pace he might even break 2800! One more win will give him a new personal high, anyways (2792 currently). Really nice play from Jobava (who is having a great year so far) and Dominguez. I like Leinier, and hope he stays in the Top 10 for a while.|
|Apr-11-14|| ||plang: Why is Dominguez playing in the Russian Team Championship?|
|Apr-11-14|| ||john barleycorn: Personal delegate of Fidel to the russian comrades|
|Apr-11-14|| ||SirRuthless: <johnbarleycorn> Right!|
|Apr-11-14|| ||mindanalyzer: Because he is getting paid. Why else?|
|Apr-11-14|| ||jphamlore: Didn't Grischuk say about why he did not play in the last Russian Superfinals that he was playing almost non-stop chess and that they needed to ask him so that he could find an opening in his schedule which he did not have? A break in his schedule and suddenly Grischuk is looking fantastic again.|
|Apr-11-14|| ||Refused: <jphamlore: Didn't Grischuk say about why he did not play in the last Russian Superfinals that he was playing almost non-stop chess and that they needed to ask him so that he could find an opening in his schedule which he did not have?

If I am not totally mistaken there was a scheduling conflict. The last Grand Prix in Paris and the Russian Superfinals overlapped. And since Grischuk still had some chances to qualify for the candidates (if he had been the sole winner in Paris), he played paris.
My memory might mislead there, though.
But Grischuk was already a bit complaining about the gruesome schedule during one of the post game press conferences in Beijing. So either explanation makes sense.
|Apr-11-14|| ||jphamlore: <Refused: But Grischuk was already a bit complaining about the gruesome schedule during one of the post game press conferences in Beijing.>|
I think toward the end of last year both Grischuk's and Caruana's games suffered from simply too much high level competitive chess. I am hoping both can take some time away from competition to recalibrate their games and make a strong bid to make the next Candidates.
|Apr-12-14|| ||mindanalyzer: My boy (dominguez) is on fire|
|Apr-14-14|| ||Everett: Do we have a team winner?|
|Apr-14-14|| ||Karpova: Malachite won: http://es.chessbase.com/post/malaqu...|
|Apr-14-14|| ||Everett: Thank you !|
|Apr-15-14|| ||whiteshark: Big cb report with lots of pictures: http://en.chessbase.com/post/malach...|
