|Aug-06-06|| ||suenteus po 147: Wow, the mighty tactician is out-tacticed!|
|Aug-06-06|| ||acirce: This is not the reason 5.Qc2 isn't popular. :-) You're not supposed to play 5..Bb7 6.Bg2 c5 (or 5..c5 6.Bg2 Bb7) as you often do otherwise but rather 5..c5 6.Bg2 Nc6! and later ..Rc8 turning White's queen somewhat poorly placed on the c-file.|
|Aug-06-06|| ||Oprenovic: 13... Nb4?
maybe already the decisive mistake; until then the game seemed to be equal
|Aug-06-06|| ||AlChess: Great win Boris my old son.Glad to see you can still beat the best!!!|
|Aug-06-06|| ||euripides: A very decisive win. It's amusing to see the QID collapse in tatters when Black puts his pawns on black squares and allows his white-squared bishop to be exchanged.|
|Aug-07-06|| ||tamar: Aronian leaves a knight en prise from move 14 to 20, then a rook en prise from
24-28, and gets no takers.
Is that some kind of record?
|Aug-08-06|| ||Honza Cervenka: Good game of Gelfand. Btw, it seems that Boris is not Aronian's much favoured opponent. Under classic time control Levon still has no win against him and he lost a game already in 2003: Gelfand vs Aronian, 2003|
|Aug-12-06|| ||AlexandraThess: A brilliant lesson from Boris Gelfand which shows that Aronian is really a bit overrated..|
|Aug-12-06|| ||positionalgenius: Aronian the "computer" is outplayed.Wow.
<Alexandrathess>I would not say overrated,just he needs solidity to his game.
|Aug-24-06|| ||Chess Lou Zer: Does anyone know how many rating points Aronian lost in this tournament?|
|Aug-24-06|| ||Albertan: Hi Chess Lou Zer. I just used Chessbase 9 to determine that Aronian had a performance rating of 2555 in this tournament (206 rating points below his rating entering the tournament).His rating entering the tournament was 2761. Maybe someone knows how to use this information to calculate how many rating points he lost.|
|Aug-24-06|| ||nikolajewitsch: He should lose around 20 rating points from the tournament.|
|Aug-24-06|| ||slomarko: aronian is not his true himself after being punched at the olympics!|
|Aug-24-06|| ||chessarmenia: whoa, lets not get too hasty on the aronian bashing; just this week, aronian beat svidler in a fischerrandom tournament,the same one anand and radjabov were at, so maybe hes coming back|
|Aug-24-06|| ||slomarko: fischerrandom isnt chess|
|Nov-04-06|| ||DUS: and Fischer isnt chess player.... (?(((:
