|Jul-07-04|| ||PinkPanther: NO. That was when he was at his rating peak. So if anything, we should expect less from him now. I'm sorry if I don't believe beating GM's in rapid games proves much, but to me, it doesn't. Sure he beat Adams today, but it was a horribly played game by both sides, neither player truly deserved to win, Kashimzdhanov only did because Adams played even worse than him. |
|Jul-07-04|| ||ughaibu: Pink Panther: ratings are derived from results they dont decide them. |
|Jul-07-04|| ||PinkPanther: No, but ratings are indicative of past results which are often an indicator of future results. If I was 1600 yesterday, I won't be 2600 tomorrow. |
|Jul-07-04|| ||ughaibu: Have a look at the recently impemented performance graphs at the Raing Post site. |
|Jul-07-04|| ||kevin86: As was predicted earlier,the pawn storm on the queenside decided this one. Upsets are always possible-who would have picked Euwe over Alekhine? |
|Jul-07-04|| ||PinkPanther: <ughaibu>
And this would be where??
|Jul-07-04|| ||ughaibu: Sorry, I missed a "c". |
|Jul-07-04|| ||Dionyseus: Huh? |
|Jul-07-04|| ||ughaibu: Dionyseus: Surprises me that people like chess but they dont like to think. |
|Jul-07-04|| ||Gypsy: < holierthanthou: I'd like to re-issue my question, now that there's no traffic: could white have won a pawn at move 24 with Bxf5, since ..Bxd5 could be met with 25.Qh3 ?> 24.Bxf5 Bxd5 25.Qh3 Bg8 and Black position is much improved. In fact, Black may suddenly have some advantage. |
|Jul-07-04|| ||Dionyseus: ?? You said you missed a "c"
I don't know where you found the performance graphs, but the FIDE site has the performance ratings for each player in this tournament, don't know if that's what you mean.
|Jul-07-04|| ||ughaibu: Handicapping of race horses "racing post", okay? |
|Jul-07-04|| ||Kaspablanca: Theminset: If 40...Nxb5 then 41. Bxb5 loosing the knight. |
|Jul-07-04|| ||Gypsy: <Kaspablanca: Theminset: If 40...Nxb5 then 41. Bxb5 loosing the knight.> 40...Nxb5 41.Bxb5 Rxd1. |
|Jul-08-04|| ||Kaspablanca: Gypsy: After 41...Rxd1 White then takes the c pawn with compensation for white. |
|Jul-08-04|| ||ruylopez900: Does anyone know if the Leko-Kramnik and Kapsarov-Adams/Kasimdzhanov matches will have reasonable time controls? |
|Jul-08-04|| ||square dance: <rl900> kramnik-leko will be played at classical time controls, hence the title of classical world chess champion, or something like that, that kramnik's title is sometimes referred to. i believe that kasparov and the fide champion will also have a classically timed chess match. this was one of the beef's, if you will, that pono had with fide, i.e. the time controls were not going to be the same as when he won the title. |
|Jul-08-04|| ||ruylopez900: <square dance> OK, good. Thanks.|
Annotations to this game. The biggie was how Adams could have saved the game on move 40.
40.Kf2?! Nxb5 (Rc8 was actually played) 41.Rxd8 Nxc3 and Black is up a pawn and comfortable. Shocking isn't it :)
|Jul-08-04|| ||Gypsy: < Kaspablanca: Gypsy: After 41...Rxd1 White then takes the c pawn with compensation for white. > True, but a full exchange down nonetheless. I do not see how the compensation White gets would completely offset the Black's exchange. Instead, White had an essentially winning position on move 39. |
|Jul-10-04|| ||tamar: Nigel Short annotates this game today with a Ali Baba thief story as introduction: http://www.telegraph.co.uk/arts/mai... |
|Jul-12-04|| ||vonKrolock: Nigel Short:<Kasim, the older brother of Ali Baba> lol, tamar - this article is a piece of fun, thanks! |
|Jul-14-04|| ||Dillinger: <46. ...Nc6? The final error, but FIDE time controls – which were introduced with the noble intention of selling more clocks – are conducive only to superficiality in the later stages of the game.> |
|Apr-24-05|| ||LIFE Master AJ: If you go to my website for "downloads" (http://www.angelfire.com/games3/AJs...), you can get a free "e-book" on this match. I have deeply annotated all the games. (You MUST have a current CB product - like Fritz - to read these files!)|
|Apr-24-05|| ||chessgames.com: Lifemaster AJ, there's nothing wrong with telling people about your website when it's relevant, but please don't make a habit duplicating the exact same post on different pages. I know that this page FIDE World Championship (2004) is not broken down into the individual matches, but perhaps it would be the best place to post your announcement. Thanks.|
|Apr-28-05|| ||LIFE Master AJ: Ohh-tay-bee.
