|Jul-10-04|| ||tanginamo: i see...well, i'm guessing either a Sicilian (Kan or something else) or a Petrov or even a Caro-Kann. |
|Jul-10-04|| ||PinkPanther: Can any please tell me what he was thinking when he made that exchange sacrifice? I see absolutely no justification whatsoever for it. He makes an exchange sacrifice and then resigns 10 moves later....rightt.... |
|Jul-10-04|| ||acirce: <PinkPanther> It would have worked well without White's f4, so he probably just missed or miscalculated that. |
|Jul-10-04|| ||apple head: adams stop monkeying around with this patzer finish him once and forall in game 5 and 6!!! |
|Jul-10-04|| ||tamar: <Panther> I think Acirce got it right earlier. Adams just missed f4. Without that tactical shot, he could have pressured the weak pawns enough to draw. |
|Jul-10-04|| ||ConspTheory06: does anyone know how many games are in this match? |
|Jul-10-04|| ||Capafan9: <Consptheory06> 6 games in the match. First four are completed. Kasim holds a 2.5-1.5 lead. If it winds up tied, then they go into a series of rapid chess tiebreaks. |
|Jul-10-04|| ||PinkPanther: <acirce>
Yes, you're probably right. This is really annoying me though, Adams is just throwing games away. And be honest, does anyone here really want Kasimdzhanov to win? Does anyone here really think that would be good for chess?
|Jul-10-04|| ||PinkPanther: What we have here is basically what was going on in the Kasparov-Fritz X3D match, two games remain, Adams must win one and draw the other to draw the match and go into the tiebreaks. Hopefully he can do what Kasparov did, tie this thing up and take his chances from there. |
|Jul-10-04|| ||drcdwil: <PinkPanther> Nothing wrong with Kasimdzhanov winning as I see it. Good chess is good for chess and if he is playing well, good. In addition, he may inspire others that think that a ceiling exists the prohibits players from reaching the top. Inspiration for upcoming players may be the biggest prize of the championship. Adams will have much success even if he loses here. |
|Jul-10-04|| ||PinkPanther: No, I don't mean that. I mean do you honestly think that would be good for the chess world and for the unification process? I'd rather see 4 Super GM's duking it out for the crown, than 3 Super GM's and Kashimdzhanov. Not to mention he stands no chance against Kasparov....which would basically be a "waste of time" match, because we all know what the outcome would be. |
|Jul-10-04|| ||tamar: The danger I see if Kasim wins is that Kasparov might disregard his obligations to play. With Adams there would be public pressure and a desire to see a match. This has happened before. Remember, Kasparov got away with not playing Shirov, and also persuaded FIDE to cancel the match with
|Jul-10-04|| ||kurathedog: Not bad if Kas wins.
Remember, he wasn't given a chance against Topolov and he pulled that off.
Wasn't given a chance against Adams and you see the results.
Sure Adams made some questionable moves - but sometimes that happens when the opponent puts a lot of pressure on. If Adams has trouble with the pressure from Kas, the other Kas (parov) will be a lot lot worse. My point is that the chess there won't necessarily be better.
|Jul-10-04|| ||kurathedog: tamar,
out of curiousity and my ignorance, why would Kasparov not play Kasim especially if people think that would be an easy win for Kasparov?
|Jul-10-04|| ||shr0pshire: Lol, <Pink Panther> You think that Kasim stands no chance against Kasparov after taking out Ivanchuk, Grischuck, Topalov, and probably Adams???? Are you kidding me and yourself by saying that? Kasim has faced the hardest competition in the tournament, and found a way to win the key games. |
Suck it up, and learn that Kasim is in the elite class of Super GMs after this performance.
How many more super grandmasters do you want him to knock off before you will give him some credit?
|Jul-10-04|| ||acirce: By some miracle it seems that all these super-GM's have suddenly blundered much more and generally played much worse than usual. Kasparov on the other hand never blunders and is always in top shape. |
|Jul-10-04|| ||drcdwil: <PinkPanther> Yeah, I see your point but the "new" guy always has to break in somewhere. He might be the next "Kasparov" and provide us all with years of great games so we have to give him a chance. Chess is the great equalizer in that the pieces are aligned the same way for everyone (initially anyway!). |
|Jul-10-04|| ||drcdwil: <shr0pshire> If the potential match with Kasparov doesn't include blitz or rapid, I think will be especially bleek for Kasim. |
|Jul-10-04|| ||AgentRgent: <Kasparov on the other hand never blunders> ahem.. Kasparov vs Radjabov, 2003 |
|Jul-10-04|| ||acirce: <AgentRgent> Yes, I was being ironical. There are many more examples. |
|Jul-10-04|| ||tamar: <kurathedog> Kasparov likes to pick and choose who he plays. He didn't play Shirov even though he has never lost to him. He wants money and prestige at this stage of his career, and may see a way to get another title shot without playing a non-elite player. Just my opinion though. |
|Jul-10-04|| ||shr0pshire: I am not saying that Kasim will beat Kasparov, but he deserves respect for what he has accomplished in the KO tournament. |
To completely disregard him like <Pink Panther and others> do, is irresponsible at best.
No chess game is perfect. Errors are made in every game. And to sugar coat the losses of Topalov, Ivanchuk and Grischuk, by saying that they made mistakes dissrespects what Kasim has accomplished.
Kasim is taking names and is raising some eye brows in this tournament. Too bad people like to bliss in their ignorance.
|Jul-10-04|| ||ajit: <Agentrgent> Acirce was joking for sure. |
|Jul-10-04|| ||PizzatheHut: I think Kasparov would play if part of the prize was a free arm shaving. |
|Jul-10-04|| ||uponthehill: <WMD> <FIDE's motto translates as We are all one people>|
Not exactly. We are one family, rather.
