|Nov-03-17|| ||frogbert: <Most top players aren't doing very well.>|
Yeah, if one totally disregards the opposition each player is facing, that's a fair assessment. ;)
All of Navara, Giri and Mamedyarov have solid 2800+ performances so far, and most of the other top players have high 2700-performances, more or less as expected.
On a similar note: I'm outperforming everyone in this tournament, judging from my perfect 5/5 in my local club's championship. :D
|Nov-03-17|| ||LameJokes55: Leko: I am happy to get a perfect result for the perfect man. |
But I canít help but feel sorry for you. Youíre my close buddy. You missed out on Ďwild cardí.
Giri: Thatís alright. I feel sorry myself. But look at the sunny side. Itís another Ďpalí of ours, who got the same.
|Nov-03-17|| ||Marmot PFL: #2 in the world plays exchange sacrifice vs #3.|
|Nov-03-17|| ||not not: Kramnik said he would try to repeat Giri's feat at Candidates by drawing all his games!|
|Nov-03-17|| ||not not: Giri and Leko played an exibition game starting from bare kings and adding extra pieces until the starting chess position would appear...|
|Nov-03-17|| ||not not: "I was utterly disappointed when Leko offered me a draw. I said to him: How could you? You beat me to it!" Anish Giri "Ways of drawmaster"|
|Nov-04-17|| ||beatgiant: <not not>
With respect, I think you should stop spamming the forum with the Giri drawmaster jokes - and I'm far from the first kibitzer to suggest this.
|Nov-04-17|| ||Pedro Fernandez: Well <not not>, why do Peter did that? "Vejentud"? Who knows! Greetings.|
|Nov-04-17|| ||Pedro Fernandez: Conjecturing that Caruana could be the next challenger, he there is not chance vs Carl. Who else? There is not! At less eight-ten years!|
|Nov-04-17|| ||PhilFeeley: Short seems to be in trouble again.|
|Nov-04-17|| ||PhilFeeley: Re: Short - I guess the eval at early stages cannot be trusted unless someone actually blunders a piece.|
|Nov-04-17|| ||not not: Pedro, Carlsen invincibility is a myth like that of Capablanca. If one's psychology is right, if his opponent is not beaten before the game starts, any top 10 player has got a chance. Giri puts an enourmous resistance everytime he is lost vs Carlsen and still gets away with a draw (jokes aside). The rest of pack seemes timid and subdue just thinking about facing WCC.|
|Nov-04-17|| ||HeMateMe: it wasn't a myth in new York last year. Karjakin was not afraid, he even briefly led, then was snuffed out by someone with superior talent.|
|Nov-04-17|| ||PhilFeeley: <most of the other top players have high 2700-performances> However, most are losing ratings points.|
But it's good to see some others doing very well. Rauf Mamedov, for instance, with a 2958 Rp. Leko (yes, Leko!) 2794 Rp, Ragger, 2709, Plat, 2718, Anton Guijarro, 2705, Banikas, 2798(!), Nevednichy, 2741, Lupulescu, 2710, Saric, 2720, Gharamian, 2716, Maze, 2745, Van Foreest, 2721, Svane, 2707, Rodshtein, 2748 (he was close anyway), Erdos, 2784, Dubov, 2704.
I know these big tournaments are great for these kinds of performances. I expect the same from the olympiad next year.
|Nov-04-17|| ||brankat: "Superior talent" should have materialized during Classic games. But, it didn't.|
|Nov-04-17|| ||Pedro Fernandez: <not not> look at eg. <HMM> thread, however, obviously, I respect your conjecture, but IMO you will see how his opponent will be crushed more ease than ever, I think so my great friend. Alekhine (IMHO stronger than Fischer) said about Capablanca: too much talent lost! Though Carlsen is not better than Capa or Steinitz, say, he has the sufficient talent to defeat the current "Super-GMs". Carlsen es Bueno!|
|Nov-05-17|| ||HeMateMe: <"Superior talent" should have materialized during Classic games. But, it didn't.>|
If not, then why is Carlsen the highest rated player as well as being world champion?
|Nov-05-17|| ||Marmot PFL: Bad day for the Russians.|
|Nov-05-17|| ||PhilFeeley: Azerbaijan is beating the Russians. Good day for chess.|
|Nov-06-17|| ||cplyakap: Azerbaijan wins the ETCC 2017. Congratz!|
|Nov-06-17|| ||HeMateMe: Little Azi beat Russia? Stalin and Botvinnik must be turning in their graves!|
|Nov-06-17|| ||Penguincw: < "Naiditch becomes the first to win European team championship with two different countries, and not actually being born in neither!" > - Peter Heine Nielsen via. Twitter|
|Nov-07-17|| ||botvinnik64: Congrats to the Azeris! A well deserved victory. Yes, the Naiditsch "situation" is quite unusual - that's even better than winning the World Series with two different teams???|
|Nov-09-17|| ||joeyj: Just wondering why Russia did not field their best Team in R8 i.e. their Bd3 player Vitiugov who has the highest Rp in the team was rested despite winning his R7. They had lost the opportunity to win in the lower boards (bd3 & bd4) and a 2-2 score and possibly the championship.|
Hayyyz possibly over confident since they were leading after R7 but they were facing the 2nd rank team and the 2nd placer after R7, and common sense will dictate that the more you will field the best players in the team.
Well, right from the start there was already a mistake of not sending their best team while others like Azerbaijan send their Top 5 players.
Just my 2-cents.
|Nov-09-17|| ||not not: If you can not field 5 Lekos or 5 Giris, any configuration is a fail!|
