|Nov-07-06|| ||Confuse: couldnt agree more <Kola>|
after all, it was Tal who said "Not to play for a win, at least with white, is to some degree a crime against chess" or something along those lines.

|Nov-07-06|| ||Atking: Yes a draw... but I can't see how White (Or Black) could improve ??|
|Nov-07-06|| ||atpenev: yes, they are shame for chess:(((|
|Nov-07-06|| ||Sannder: I think neither wanted to waste any energy on this, as it would be teriibly hard to win and points are much more likely to be harvested from the weaker players in the field.|
Doesn't make the game any more interesting though.
|Nov-07-06|| ||Caissanist: <points are much more likely to be harvested from the weaker players in the field.> Hmm, there doesn't seem to be a lot of weakness at this tournament. One wonders if either or both of these players have prepared a novelty against Carlsen and are aiming for +1=9.|
|Nov-07-06|| ||Akavall: At least it wasn't as bad as this game Shirov vs Mamedyarov, 2006, where Shirov went straight for the draw.|
|Nov-07-06|| ||dehanne: Leko should be invited to the Schlechter Memorial together with Svidler, Ribli, Sakaev, Kramnik and Huzman.|
|Nov-07-06|| ||Confuse: <you vs yourself> Thats too bad, however if you want to compare crimes...http://www.chessgames.com/perl/ches...|
Leko has a much larger criminal record =)
out of 1193
As opposed to Tal's which is out of
However, theres no reason to get touchy(I suppose I did a little ; )) . Both are great players and have their own style. I can appreciate a good Leko game as much as a good Tal game. good luck to Leko in the rest of the tournament.

|Nov-09-06|| ||hpdrifter: The only way the contestants of this game could be excused of their peacemaking was if their white flag waving was due to a guilty conscious over wasting Valuable Drinking Time.|
