Kibitzer's Corner
Feb-07-07  Bobak Zahmat: Before looking at the game, I have to say this guy Ilya's performance at Moscow Open group B has impressed me much.
Feb-07-07  Bobak Zahmat: Wow, this guy plays really great chess. Really dynamic play, even with the Black pieces.
Feb-07-07  Bobak Zahmat: Perhaps this battle will be played much more between this two chess wonderboys in the future.
Feb-07-07  sitzkrieg: To me it looks more like he was playing/fighting for a draw. Nothing special this game. But who won the wch boys under 12 (dnt it be 10?) in 2005?
Feb-07-07  ianD: He at least figured out how to salvage a draw in an inferior position against stronger opposition. Smart if not awe-inspiring.

  alexmagnus: It can't be U10, Negi was 12 in 2005.

  JointheArmy: <alexmagnus> It says U12 not U10
Feb-07-07  Themofro: Why did white not simply trade queens? Why avoid it? With the queens gone white has at least a draw, but with the queens on the board you never know.
Feb-07-07  sitzkrieg: <themofro> white prob. still trying to win there.

<JTA> Alex answered a question of me (mine?).

Feb-08-07  miketwyble2: Have also read the report on chessbase and just played through the Negi game for a look. It's pretty impressive for age group and looks ahead on similar things from Kasparov , Karjakin etc.

  alexmagnus: I just found out Nyzhnyk took 1/5 in that U12 World championship - I guess the score against rated opponents is meant since normally you play more than 5 games in these tournaments.

  beenthere240: Article in today's (2/18/07) ny times showing a game of Nyzhnyk against D. Dubov in which he won with black playing a Scandanavian. The author of the article, McClain, says that Nyzhnyk plays a wide variety of openings, making it hard to prepare for him. He is 10 years old but was permitted to play in the B group, which he won 8.5/9 -- GM level. Note in this game he had a 2100 pt rating. He plays holding a teddy bear, which has to make the thrill of losing against him even more memorable.

  beenthere240: BTW Nyzhnyk was 8 years old or possibly 9 when the above game was played, which should be taken into account when dismissing the quality of his play. I thought he handled the 30. Nxd5! shot quite well.
