|Sep-29-05|| ||keypusher: Wow, 1...g6. Wonder if <IMlday>'s and <Ray Keene>'s will have anything to say about this one! Anyway, nice to see something other than the usual.|
|Sep-29-05|| ||Snow Man: Hell yeah dude! Svidler is THE MAN!!|
|Sep-29-05|| ||Hidden Skillz: once i saw g6 i thought svidler would get outplayed but i was wrong|
|Sep-29-05|| ||Gypsy: God forbid to play this position for a win! -- It seems that Kasim just wants to fly the rournament under the radar, never ofending anyone by actually playing for a win. In contrast, Topalov plays lesser advantages for all that they are worth; and then some.|
|Sep-30-05|| ||AdrianP: Cf. P Charbonneau vs Lahno, 2004|
|Sep-30-05|| ||ChessKata: I generally as a rule play all of my tournament games out, myself. If the game is really a draw then it should not matter if it is played out. course I might lose, but I'd still rather play it out.|
|Sep-30-05|| ||csmath: This is not much of a game. Interesting how little ambition Kasim has. Instead of trying to play for a win he goes for the simplifications with 13. Nd5. One cannot blame Svidler doing the same thereafter. This is a draw in his interest.|
It has been also a long time since Austrian Attack was played in a high level game for a WC.
|Sep-30-05|| ||euripides: According to Nigel Short on chessbase, Kasim was hoping to win the ending but went wrong with 23 Kc1 instead of b3. http://www.chessbase.com/newsdetail...|
|Sep-30-05|| ||Marvol: <csmath>, if you read that article on Chessbase, you will find Kasim to have had quite a different state of mind...|
|Sep-30-05|| ||refutor: kasim should have played on. svidler got the better of this draw i believe.|
|Sep-30-05|| ||tud: Another good endgame refused by the players. And we are questioned why we remember with love Fischer. I bet Svidler has a great vacation in SanLuis, eats well and watches (but not much playing) cricket, soccer and chess. The danger for him is to become too fat.|
|Sep-30-05|| ||rexeterna: <tud: The danger for him is to become too fat.> How true.|
|Sep-30-05|| ||bush: Kasim = was he wearing the same suit/pants in rounds 1 & 2? what a cheapskate!! must have stunk like hell. that is, if my eyes weren't deceiving me.|
|Sep-30-05|| ||John Abraham: I do believe that Kasparov wore the same suit through every round of Linares 2005.|
You can check the photos of Linares 2005 at Chessbase website :-)
|Oct-03-05|| ||refutor: <chessgames.com> is there an option to turn the game pictures off?|
|Oct-03-05|| ||chessgames.com: <refutor> Funny you should mention that; we're working on it now. It will be ready the next time we update the preferences page, which should be in a few days. Our concern is that users without high-bandwidth may not appreciate the large photographs. With the option set, you'll have a link to the photo instead of the photo itself.|
|Oct-03-05|| ||refutor: that's great...either you guys can read my mind or i should be on the development team ;)|
|Oct-03-05|| ||John Abraham: Kasimdzhanov (disgusted): "Ugh. What's that smell?"|
|Oct-17-05|| ||OverDjinn: The Pirc is largely underestimated. Short wrote in his review that it was almost an insult to play it at this level, Rogozenko once told me during a game that it was “too easy to crack,” and I’ve heard Kramnik describe it as unusual and probably unsound. Despite all the nasty talk, top players like Gurevich, Chernin, Bologan, Ivanchuk, Hickl, Timman, Benjamin, Gelfand, Seirawan, Miles, Smirin, Khalifman, van Wely, Nunn, Smyslov, Shirov, and Svidler have used it, off the top of my head. Silman claims the opening is so interesting that he has considered returning to tournament chess to try it out. I just don’t see why everybody is so eager to jump on the bandwagon and deride the Pirc! If it is unsound, it is only so to a degree that matters to 2700 players, and what kind of justification do the rest of us have to shirk it on those grounds?|
