|Feb-02-07|| ||classF: <RandomVisitor> is Rybka saying that white had the advantage but resigned? or should it be -0.71 and -0.69?|
|Feb-03-07|| ||RandomVisitor: <classF>Black has the advantage. For some reason I edited out the minus signs by mistake. |
The chess program "arena" scores positions as positive favoring the side to move. I had just completed changing the minus signs for the Shulman-World game and I got carried away here.
|Feb-07-07|| ||patzer2: Nickel's win is impressive. However, White's play is not so strong and does little to counter Black's straight forward plan of building up a strong Kingside attack.|
Seems to me that Karpov's plan of 16. Rc2 and subsequent play in Karpov vs Z Almasi, 1996 suggest White is far from impotent in countering Black's aggressive play in the 12...f5 line.
Yet, I must admit that nothing I've seem so far suggests an outright refutation of the 12...f5 line by White. Still, the fact that strong GMs and Masters have avoided this line, and the inherent weakness it creates on ...e5, makes it IMO suspect as a winning try for strong correspondence play.
|Mar-04-07|| ||Thorsson: I don't think White resigned at all. He does stand worse, but the position is not resignable. Artur had some RL problems at this point and simply stopped playing chess. His games were all scored as losses.|
|Mar-04-07|| ||classF: yes, it looks like Artur forfeited three games in the event. |
This crosstable has too many symbols
1, 0, =, l, w, L, W, - and +
|May-27-07|| ||Richard Taylor: No Black is better but not winning. f5 seems ok The weakness on e5 yes but Black heads for f4 to attempt to break open the King side|
