Sep-30-05  Fezzik: Oh NOOOOOOO! Adams was my darkhorse pick for the tournament. I guess it really will be a two-horse race after this. Unless Moro wins, then it may be a one-horse race!
Sep-30-05  dippel: Analysis by Fritz 7:

1. 21.Ne4 b5 22.Nb2 e5 23.axb5 axb5 24.c3 Nf5 25.Qf3 Nxe3 26.Qxe3 Qd5 27.c4 Qc6 28.Nd1 =

  Robin01: If Black can get his f and e pawns moving then White is going to have an awful cramped position.
Sep-30-05  BipolarChessorder: Topalov has the more dynamic position now, after moro has frozen his queenside pawns

  Gypsy: <Sneaky: There's IM Day's b3 move.> It seems to me that Moro has switched once again. Currently he returned to playing against the "bad" Be7.
Sep-30-05  hoogovens: Moro looks virtually lost. His pieces do not cooperate, Topa has a great knight on d4 and looks very alive> He took defending lessons from Anand.
Sep-30-05  Ulhumbrus: Adams has resigned his game against Anand, I won't say more than that here.
Sep-30-05  Fezzik: I think it's too complex just now to say who's ahead. White's best chances lie in some sort of k-side attack, but Black seems to have the center and q-side under better control. Of course, I'm just a guppy in this pond.
Sep-30-05  chaital2005: <> Let us know when you post anand- adams game.....thanx
Sep-30-05  Fezzik: The consistent move for Black will be Nf5.

  Robin01: Does anyone have any idea why Black played 20...a6?

  JustAFish: <Klasuawitz> Na realidade, a "rainha" e' chamada 'dama'.

Tranlation: Actally, in portuguese, the 'rainha' (queen) is called "dama." In notation it is abbreviated "D". I followed the 1987 Karpov, Kasparov World Championship matches while living in Brazil and first learned chess notation in Portuguese.

Sep-30-05  jkiipli: <chaital2005: <fgh> good to see u here....U said u will eat two raw eggs with anand wins against Judit!!! I hope u must have followed ur words> who knows, maybe he always eats two raw eggs every morning regardless wether Anand wins or not...

  Catfriend: <Fezzik> 21..e5 is also an option
Sep-30-05  gomickeylol: Musta been luck!


Sep-30-05  hoogovens: ...e5!?
Sep-30-05  awalters869: looks like whites c pawn could eventually become troublesome --- black is more active with the pawns on the Q side and the K side is well protected against any counterplay from white
Sep-30-05  klausewitz: Thanks for Alexandrovm and fgh.
Sep-30-05  fgh: <chaital2005>: Sorry, but it was only related to my joke that Anand will lose to Kasimdzhanov in the first round. Which didn't not happen. :-)
