Jul-04-04  pawn52: Finally!! It's over. Congratulations Adams.
Jul-04-04  Cornwallis: <Gypsy>
I agree. I respect them as Super GM's but world If you can't defeat kraminik or anand or kasparov, you may have the title but technically no

  jaime gallegos: Topa-Kaz is on the final too ! both sides with checkmate menace , but Topa is better
Premium Chessgames Member It's official, the game is drawn and Adams progresses to the finals. You can watch the conclusion of the Topalov-Kasimdzhanov match here
Jul-04-04  karlzen: Toppy-Kasim =, Topalov seem to have blundered the win.
Jul-04-04  charms: Ponomariov doesn't fit into it... as well as most of the other top players (Anand, Shirov, Bareev, ...) Leko qualified by winning the 2002 Dortmund tournament, which is also dubious als justification. Theres quite a lot fishy about it.
Jul-04-04  ketchuplover: Yes congrats to Mr. Adams :) I hope he tops Topalov
Jul-04-04  Cornwallis: Go Adams!
Jul-04-04  karlzen: Tremendous effort by Radjabov, a draw was all he needed as black and he got it! ;)

  cu8sfan: Does anyone know who offered the draw?

  Gypsy: Adams was merciful. He could have played Qe4 with nearly certain win. Black can not let the queen in on white squares. But if Qxe4 Nxe4 the endgame looks like a technical win for the superior knight. (Black Q-side pawns are too exposed, as well.)
Premium Chessgames Member
  tamar: The more champions the merrier. Either Adams or Topalov would be a longshot to take the classical title, but they are earning their shot in a grueling competition. Especially as the Leko- Kramnik affair is likely to be tedious.
Jul-04-04  WMD: This game ended on deuce.

  acirce: <But if Qxe4 Nxe4 the endgame looks like a technical win for the superior knight.> Can White really break through or shouldn't Black's fortress hold? Of course he would have played on in any other game though.
Jul-04-04  uponthehill: <<Cornwallis> Whoever wins this Championship, do you think that topalov or adams is the "real" world champion?>

Certainly not. Even the champion raised by that process won't be reliable in my opinion- e.q. Anand is outside of the play.

The only good methode of restroing absolute world champion would be repeating such tournament as raised the champ after Alechin's death- 6 world's highest rated player contest.

Jul-04-04  seoulmama: What are you talking about Karlzen?! Radjabov is out now! A win was necessary.
Jul-04-04  karlzen: <seoulmama>, I'm sorry for the confusion, it was a joke (thus the ;) symbol).

  tpstar: Queen to E Seven!?

Goofy as it gets

  Gypsy: <acirce: <But if Qxe4 Nxe4 the endgame looks like a technical win for the superior knight.> Can White really break through or shouldn't Black's fortress hold?...> It should hold as long as Black can keep the White knight from reaching e6. And it looks that Black can.
Premium Chessgames Member
  acirce: Yup, Black doesn't exactly lack control over the relevant dark squares.
Jul-04-04  PinkPanther: Hey acirce, are you still going to attest to Radjabov's opening preparation after this game?
Premium Chessgames Member
  acirce: Lol, fair question. He is often good at that but this was just silly.
Jul-05-04  karlzen: Well, after all he drew easily with Qe7 against one of the world's leading grandmasters! ;)
Jul-05-04  seoulmama: Oh sorry karlzen, I was being silly :-).
Jul-05-04  karlzen: No problem, <seoulmama>. :)
