|Jun-13-16|| ||technical draw: Chucky is still a dangerous GM. Never rule him out.|
|Jun-13-16|| ||plang: Not familiar with Kryvoruchko - looks like he has almost no experience in round robins at this level. Good to see new blood.|
|Jun-13-16|| ||fisayo123: Berlin defenses abound. Some of these guys aren't even pretending anymore. Yuck. |
At least Chucky is trying to play chess, and he is getting rewarded.
|Jun-14-16|| ||Keshav Murali: Hail Chucky|
|Jun-14-16|| ||PhilFeeley: Bruzon taking a bruzin'...|
|Jun-14-16|| ||ndg2: After round 5, Chucky has three times as many wins than all other players combined|
|Jun-14-16|| ||messachess: Interesting venue. Looks like quite a nice place.|
|Jun-14-16|| ||PawnSac: < technical draw: Chucky is still a dangerous GM. Never rule him out. >|
absolutely agree. nevertheless, i think this event was a good choice for him. the top chairs are closely rated, but chucky has been much higher than all the rest, and when it comes to experience, he has the advantage. So he has the more favorable odds of winning, and i'm sure he could use the money.
|Jun-14-16|| ||PawnSac: < plang: Not familiar with Kryvoruchko - looks like he has almost no experience in round robins at this level. > |
I wouldn't know about his round robin experience, but it seems after his 2013 world cup loss to chucky he came prepared this time.
|Jun-14-16|| ||PawnSac: lets see how he does in his next pairing with chucky|
|Jun-14-16|| ||Keyser Soze: Some nice Chucky games. Might save one for the annual best games collection.|
|Jun-15-16|| ||dx9293: <PawnSac> Ivanchuk has been a top player for over 25 years. He probably doesn't need the money anymore. Same as someone like Polgar (retired) or Kamsky (nearly retired).|
|Jun-16-16|| ||posoo: A DISGRACE that you can not WIN A MIMFO GAME in a Six person tormament and be in "SECOND PLADW."|
Dis has to change.
Adopt da PSS. Before it is too late.
|Jun-16-16|| ||morfishine: Ivanchuk's main problem is getting into terrible time trouble. I hope he wins out here|
|Jun-16-16|| ||diagonal: <I hope he wins out here>, Me too.|
And Ivanchuk has the number of the Capablanca Memorial (mostly played at Havana) as a six-times record winner of the tournament before this year's edition started. Kramnik has / had Dortmund, Topalov had Sofia (for a brief period), Kasparov famously dominated Linares, Karpov had Tilburg, and some say that Carlsen nowadays has Wijk aan Zee, already five-times taking the A-group, plus the B & C as a pupil (Beverwijk / Wijk aan Zee was a good platform also for Anand as well as Euwe, Korchnoi, Portisch, and Aronian). In rapid / exhibitions series, Anand triumphed nine times at Leon (various formats from classical chess in round robin to k.o.-matches in rapid, including advanced chess battles) and took seven times the Corsican Circuit, so far. And of course, Najdorf is Mr. Mar del Plata: 11 wins at closed Mar del Plata (plus later three times the Open), in total 14 wins or co-wins at Mar del Plata, a benchmark hardly to be surpassed ever!
Still, the first and maybe most important step to win a closed round robin tournament, is to get an invitation, compare for instance 16th Poikovsky Karpov Tournament (2015).
|Jun-16-16|| ||posoo: VERY KEENE POINT dugonal. It did not occur to da old posoo dat u need to be invoted to win.|
da sitation to do pullakovsky was very instructive.
|Jun-17-16|| ||sonia91: <Ivanchuk on the rampage in Cuba> by User: polarmis: https://chess24.com/en/read/news/iv...|
|Jun-17-16|| ||WorstPlayerEver: Lol the Old Drawers Guard. What a joke!|
|Jun-17-16|| ||HeMateMe: why aren't there more games so far in this event?|
|Jun-17-16|| ||john barleycorn: siesta time|
|Jun-19-16|| ||diagonal: Vassily Ivanchuk is clear first, his is now a seven-time winner of the Capablanca Memorial tournament (2005, 2006, 2007, 2010, 2011, 2012 and 2016) out of eight entries, an excellent input-output ratio!|
Btw.: Tony Miles follows with four (co-)wins in the Elite Group (1994, 1995, 1996 and 1999)
|Jun-23-16|| ||sonia91: Poor Bruzon had a horrible tournament, after having hard time in the American Continental Championship earlier this month, where he dropped 25 rtg points; now he is out of top 100..|
|Jun-27-16|| ||technical draw: Here's Ivan Drawparinov!|
