Mar-21-05  Hidden Skillz: i thought 20.Nxd4 was tempting but unsure if it was the right move..it certainly was according to moro..
Mar-23-05  Akavall: Hmmm...If you look at the picture here http://www.chessbase.com/newsdetail... Scroll about halfway down the screen. You see that Svidler has Black pieces and Morozevich white. I wonder where chessbase got the picture. I hope they are not trying to feed us a picture from last year or just some random picture...

  acirce: <Akavall> Look at Morozevich vs Svidler, 2005 (the blindfold game from this year) and go to the position after 21.Bd1, then compare to the position on the screen behind them in that article. Must be from that game. I think the position on their board is from about move 9 of the same game - white queen on c1, knight on d2 etc - so it looks like post-mortem analysis of the same blindfold game.
Mar-23-05  Akavall: <acirce> I think you are right, this is the most logical answer.

What bothered me is that under the photo it says "The rapid games are conducted in a more traditional fashion". So chessbase is making it look like they are in fact playing a rapid game.
