|Apr-01-03|| ||Moo: The reason why not 22...Bxh3 instead of 22...Bf3 is that Wojte allucinated 23. Kc1 Re2
the moral here is never underestimate your opponent.. specially if he is a kid. |
|Apr-01-03|| ||morphynoman2: Are you sure, Moo? Who's allucinating? 23... Re2? |
|May-12-03|| ||Moo: Yes. Indeed. I say that may be, black thought that the rook was saved after 22... Bf3 23.Kc1 Re2. Yea. Re2. You know, morphino, the rook which is in the square d2 moving to e2. That is 23... Re2. What's the point? I suggest You change morphine to the yellow pills your doctor prescribed. Lol. |
|May-13-03|| ||Honza Cervenka: Why not 23...Bh5? |
|May-13-03|| ||crafty: 23. ... ♗h5 24. ♖e7 b5 25. ♖xa7 ♗f3 26. ♖c7 ♖e2 (eval -0.44; depth 16 ply; 750M nodes)|
|May-14-03|| ||Honza Cervenka: After 23...Bh5 24.Re7 I would rather play 24...Bf3 being satisfied with a draw after 25.Re3 Bh5 etc. Maybe I am wrong as I didn't analyse this position too much but I simply don't like endings where the opponent can quickly create a distant passed pawn. I am afraid that computors are not the best guide in positions like this one. |
|Mar-30-04|| ||ConLaMismaMano: At this game Wojtkiewicz was rated 2555 and not 2683. |
|Mar-30-04|| ||Bobsterman3000: This young fellow is the next great American hope, in my opinion. I think it's a shame that we don't have an American-born player in the top 50. Does anyone think he is on track to become an Elite GM one day? |
|Mar-31-04|| ||notsodeepthought: Well, more than a year after this game, Caruana's rating is up about 60 points - good progress, but not exceptional (Magnus Carlssen, a year older, is close to 2600). At any rate, whether Caruana can really join the GM ranks is too early to say. |
|Jul-20-07|| ||Chris C: A few years later now, Fabiano has gone on to become the youngest US (and Italian) GM in history...|
20.07.2007 – At the "First Saturday" GM tournament in Budapest a 14-year-old lad took first place, scoring 7.0/9, a point and a half ahead of the rest. The 2631 performance gave Fabiano Caruana his final GM norm, making him the youngest US or Italian grandmaster in history (he has dual citizenship)... http://chessbase.com/newsdetail.asp...

Wow. Props to <Bobsterman3000> calling this about nine years out.
