|Jun-30-14|| ||QueentakesKing: It's a pity that Ivan was left way far far far behind by Vishy. Tsk! tsk!|
|Jun-30-14|| ||HeMateMe: I'd demonstrate how to make a pitcher of beer disappear, before everyone's eyes, after the stress of a week long tournament.|
If every tournament had such an active correspondent as we have had with E.C., the big tournaments would be even more interesting than they are now. Well done!
|Jun-30-14|| ||Kanatahodets: <PhilFeeley: <At the other end of the table, Krush, Shankland, Panjwani and Kovalyov are talking about players that they don't like, and why.>
I'd really like to be a fly on the wall for that conversation!> this is just a primitive vanity talk. I observe it each time when I go to the conference. Smaller guys are very hierarchical.|

|Jun-30-14|| ||siggemannen: Congrats to Chucky and thanks to <Edmontonchessclub> for insights into the tourney|
|Jun-30-14|| ||vkk: We need Ivanchuk in the next candidates tournament.|
|Jun-30-14|| ||plang: Ivanchuk was pretty controversial in the last Candidates he played in - doubt there would be a lot of support for a repeat performance|
|Jun-30-14|| ||vkk: He makes things interesting
On a good day he can beat carlsen how carslen beats nakamura
On a bad day it's terrible
|Jun-30-14|| ||PhilFeeley: Yes, thanks <E.C> for the great reports. If we only had pictures we'd have the Chessbase report!|
(Why was a guy in Brazil able to report on a tournament in Edmonton - with pictures? Was he there?)
|Jul-01-14|| ||capafischer1: The fact that krush held ivanchuk and SO to a draw is pretty impressive. She is a legitimate grandmaster. Very few women in the world have accomplished as much as her.|
|Jul-01-14|| ||Caissanist: Well, her performance in this particular tournament wasn't so impressive, she lost about 15 rating points.|
|Jul-01-14|| ||perfidious: Not at all, for all the talk of a great achievement by Krush in holding the two super GMs with White.|
|Jul-01-14|| ||Edmontonchessclub: <Philfeeley> The Brazilian reporter used photos from the official webpage, with permission.|
Thanks everyone. We'll do it again next year.
I'll be commenting on plenty of chess games between now and then. I've been a Chessgames.com member for longer than I've been a chess organizer.
|Jul-02-14|| ||chesssalamander: Congrats to Ivanchuk!!!|
|Jul-02-14|| ||Check It Out: <Edmontonchessclub> Thanks for the chatty comments on the tournament, they made is very interesting!|
|Jul-05-14|| ||parisattack: Yes, most enjoyable the blogging from <Edmontonchessclub>!|
It would be nice to see other tournaments use CG.com as a blogging tool in the same manner...
|Jul-06-14|| ||Sokrates: Congrats to Ivanchuk for another impressive performance. But even higher praise should be given to Wesley So, who would have won convincingly, if Vassily hadn't been in his best playing mood. Ivanchuk's performances really vary like ebb and flow, and it's only unfortunate for WS that he was in his flow in this tournament. |
Chesswise it's always a special pleasure to follow the good games by the "old" master, since they are packed with unique, unusual and imaginative solutions.
