Jun-19-04  shr0pshire: I don't think that Bologan was ready for this opening. This line of the caro-kahn isn't played very much, and might have had Bologan scratching his head in the opening.

The way that Bologan played the opening gave him very unfavorable chances in the game, adn the statistics for the opening explorer are accurate in regards to this game. At move five -- according to the opening explorer -- white has a two to one win ratio.

These aren't good odds, and think it boils down to the opening on this one.

I just think Bologan got caught off guard. Then tries to pull of a half formed hedgehog formation after that, which doesn't end up doing him justice.

Jun-19-04  Checkmate4327: Without a computer, I can see that
31 Bxg6 just loses to 31...Qg3, threatening mate on g2 and also hitting the bishop with the queen.
Jun-19-04  jeffnool: nice game Mark!!! Best wishes to my countryman!!!
Jun-19-04  dragon40: Well Bologan has 1 more chance tomorrow to pull it even and get it to blitz where he should win. Good example of a poorly VERY poorly prepared GM though, and it should not happen! Of course it does, but most GM's try and be more prepared! I am sure he will do better tomorow :)
