|Oct-04-05|| ||vmur2000: <chessgames.com> Please do something.I want to see Anand live and after todays match it wont be possible unless u do.|
|Oct-04-05|| ||me to play: <tamar> ok...thanks!|
|Oct-04-05|| ||tpstardefender: <Topalov-Kasimdzhanov> 1-0 Finally time for redemption!|
|Oct-04-05|| ||Gypsy: < YouRang: <Gypsy> Okay...Thanks. 65 ...Kc3, 66 Rg8 Rxe7 67 Rxg3+. I suppose at this point, black will win because his king is better placed, and he will likely force a rook exchange, eat white pawns and win. Is that about right?> You are right. (In fact, 65...Kc2 is even more accurate.)|
|Oct-04-05|| ||abcpokerboy: <sergeidave>, Steinitz won 25 in a row, Fischer's streak was 20 or 21, I can't remember which.|
|Oct-04-05|| ||sergeidave: <vmur2000: <chessgames.com> Please do something.I want to see Anand live and after todays match it wont be possible unless u do.> Chessgames.com is broadcasting the tournament leader's games only. At least that what they said last time. :)|
|Oct-04-05|| ||badest: <vmur2000> have you checked p166 - there are excellent instructions there - and the games are live (no kibizing though...)|
|Oct-04-05|| ||Richard Taylor: Topalov is a great player - I knew it would be hard for him against Judit as she is also very dynamic - Topalov is very deceptive -he often seems to play "bad" moves and they turn out to be good so to speak - is he like Korchnoi in style? A complex and elliptical player.|
|Oct-04-05|| ||sergeidave: Thanks, <abcpokerboy>. I Forgot about Steinitz|
|Oct-04-05|| ||badest: Surely in "modern-times" a winning streak of 20+ is impossible...|
|Oct-04-05|| ||jimbo2: fiscer beat old men. kasparov, Karpov eat him alive, and maybe topalov|
|Oct-04-05|| ||YouRang: Fischer won 20 in a row.|
|Oct-04-05|| ||Richard Taylor: < tpstardefender: <Richard Taylor> You're clueless. The tournament has 14 rounds and so far 6 rounds are finished, with Topi imitating 'hydra' for fun.> So there are 8 rounds - thank you - I have watched the games but was cofused by how the World Cahmionship was organised -so its a double rounder? No? |
You have to admit that a lot of people will be confused or "clueless" -after all where is Kranmnik etc?
|Oct-04-05|| ||Dionyseus: <Vmur2000> We did Topalov-Anand live, and you'll get a chance to see Anand-Topalov live later on the tournament.|
|Oct-04-05|| ||jimbo2: what was Spassky to the greatest world champions ever, top 8 or 10|
|Oct-04-05|| ||badest: I think the question is: Will Topa lose a game in this tournament... we should get some betting going ;)|
|Oct-04-05|| ||Daodejing: Steinitz won 25 games in a row. This was the longest winning run in chess history.|
|Oct-04-05|| ||prodigywannabe: Must be luck :-)|
|Oct-04-05|| ||jimbo2: Kraminick, can run from Garry, but I hope top plays this way agains Kraminick, top will kill him, with the chessmen.|
|Oct-04-05|| ||chessgames.com: Our policy for deciding what game to show is set up so that it's almost impossible for any one player to not be shown. We've seen two Anand games so far, and it's looking likely that we'll see Anand vs Topalov on Saturday.|
|Oct-04-05|| ||sergeidave: At the strenght Topalov's playing, I think Kramnik wouldn't even hurt Topalov, unless he physically grabs the king or the queen and throws it on Toppy's head or face or something... hehe...|
|Oct-04-05|| ||capablancakarpov: Actually Fischer won 19 in a row, not 20. That 20th victory was one over Panno without fight because Panno refused to play, so the streak was 19.|
|Oct-04-05|| ||Werewolf: żDo you think Topa will be able to beat a machine? Has he ever played against one?|
|Oct-04-05|| ||arielbekarov: Good morning Jafar! <Jafar219> You do really honour me with your kind words. Thank you very much! I have to work on my game collections, though. I have many interesting games in my collections, but I have to organise them better.|
I see that you are from Baku! I was in your beautiful city 1983, just before you were born as I can see.
Hopefully, I will be able to visit Baku again.
Great game Judit Polgar vs Veselin Topalov!
All the best!
|Oct-04-05|| ||roni.chessman: Even though Topalov can do such damage to the world's greats, i still doubt Topalov can beat Hydra. As we speak, Hydra's developers probably have more than 64 clusters of processors on that monster. It cannot be beaten on classical time controls given the normal circumstances.|
