|Oct-04-05|| ||offramp: Leko is playing in quite lively style - he is just not winning.|
|Oct-04-05|| ||aw1988: Everyone in this tournament, even the tail-enders, are playing absolutely brilliantly, it's unfortunately just those who "get there first".|
|Oct-04-05|| ||roni.chessman: Tell me about it...Kasimdzhanov's play is far superior than during Linares 2005. He seemed mightily intimidated there. |
In fact, if i didn't see Kasimdzhanov's name there, I'd say he's good enough for the 2700 club.
|Oct-04-05|| ||csmath: It looks like Kasim missed something here, I did not check this game but it seems Kasim might have had something after the opening and it looks that Leko never had anything.|
Leko's winning ambitions here are, it seems to me, over.
|Oct-04-05|| ||THE pawn: I agree with the fact that kazim plays good chess, and leko is not that bad too, don't forget that if it wasn't for his mistake, he would have one against topalov ( but chess is a game of mistakes so...)|
|Oct-04-05|| ||John Abraham: Hmm I don't like the picture. This is supposed to be a photo of the Kasimdzhanov-Leko game, not just of Kasimdzhanov.|
|Oct-04-05|| ||OJC: The picture shows one of Kasimdzhanov's subtle techniques. He doesn't let his opponent see into his eyes while he's thinking. If only Benko or Korchnoi had thought of that they wouldn't have to wear dorky sunglasses against Tal or Karpov|
|Oct-05-05|| ||DutchDunce: It works in poker, too. Only thing is, there's not really anything to read, because you can't see your cards.|
|Oct-05-05|| ||Mateo: Kasim played sound chess as usual until move 37 at least. There it seems to me he made a small inacurracy, 37. Qe2 ?!, and Leko could free his game with 37... d5. I think he should have played 37. Qf5 gf 38. Nf6. For instance, 38... Bg7 (to cover h7) 39. Ng8 Kg8 40. Nc3 (xd5) .|
