May-15-05  Jack Kerouac: Geez! I guess my schooling isn't as old as I thought!

  OhioChessFan: White will take the bishop with the rook. Undoubling pawns is not an issue right now.
May-15-05  cheski: <Jack Kerouac: Geez! I guess my schooling isn't as old as I thought!> Lucky you!!
May-15-05  Jack Kerouac: Cheski-Well, I have been on the road for a while...
May-15-05  Franz the Stampede: Just why didnt Spidey took the Bishop with the pawn in order to try to create an obstacle to Pono's passed pawn?
May-15-05  ahmadov: I also think that taking Pono's bishop with the pawn would bring more benefits for Mickey. Here, he finds himself in a more complicated situation to notch a win
May-15-05  mack: Bollocks to this, the footie's on.
May-15-05  Jack Kerouac: Inspiration for a chess song; goes a little like this:"Although I've tried not to, I think I'm hopelessly drawn to you.."

May-15-05  ahmadov: It is a shame, but I can see from the official web site that this is a draw with repetition.
May-15-05  Jack Kerouac: Hey!That ditty wasn't that bad!
May-15-05  ahmadov: Yes, it has been announced to be a draw
May-15-05  TheSlid: And now the scramble to find a TV showing the football...
May-15-05  Bossi: As I thought it ends on 1/2 - 1/2.
May-15-05  WMD: The players engineered a draw without making it look too obvious.
May-15-05  iron maiden: Rats, just as I get here to watch it, they draw. Maybe I haven't giving Ponomariov enough credit; it's no mean task to draw Anand and Adams with black on consecutive days.
May-16-05  acirce: 22.Rxe3+ is the first new move and White starts the repeating sequence in move 24. As close to a non-game draw it gets.

May-16-05  PinkPanther: <iron maiden>
Yeah, that game was 99% theory. It's nothing I couldn't have done with the black pieces.
May-16-05  ajile: 4.D4 transposing into a Panov Attack is the best way to beat the Caro-Kann. Liquidating the center with cxd5 just helps Black equalize.
May-17-05  jotaefe: Invito a los hispanos a hacer comentarios.
May-21-05  espanol 2005: que buena idea, ahi va mi primer comentario en espanol, siempre he considerado la defensa caro-kann como inferior, fischer por ejemplo nunca la usó, y no se me olvida tampoco la ultima partida entre leko y kramnik por el campeonato del mundo, donde leko desde la apertura estaba en ligera desventaja usando la caro-kann, a la postre perderia, y tantos jeugos con caro-kann desastrosos

puede ser una defensa muy solida, pero es muy arriesgada a la vez, el sacrificio de caballo clasico, el ahogamiento para las piezas negras en muchos casos, en fin, yo nunca juego caro-kann

<acirce> Excellent post. Perhaps that means that if the goal is to avoid draws, the rules have become even more radical.

Mar-09-06  acirce: Yes, but why anyone would consider draws as such a problem is beyond me.
Mar-09-06  ughaibu: There are always people who haven't read the book.
