Jun-29-07  Confuse: No comments for a Queen vs Two Rooks + minors all over ending? Well... Neat game! I'm not smart enough to appreciate Kramnik vs Leko's draw : (.

  keypusher: Posts to the effect of <I can't believe there are no posts about this game> always drive me up a wall, but <Confuse>'s post is nonsensical even for this genre, because:

1) The game was played today.

2) There are multiple posts about this game on the Dortmund 2007 page.

Jun-29-07  Marmot PFL: It was a neat game and very difficult. 42...Bc4 followed by c2 and Qe3 seems very strong for black.
Jun-29-07  Confuse: <pi guy>

Ahahaha nice! boy is my face red. ; ) I'm not going to edit my comment though so the world can see my shame : )


I know what you mean. But think about the context in which I was writing the message: The game played by Kramnik and Leko had well over 13 pages of posts(probably attributed to live game, but I have no doubt any game played by Kramnik in a recent tournament would garner more posts then one played by Alekseev/Naiditsch) and as for the multiple posts on the Dortmund 07 page I can admit I am not fond of browsing those very large page count comments, and so I simply looked to the game and on the side, there were no comments! (le gasp)

I apologize for driving you up the wall, but I wanted you to know that I definitely put some thinking into my post. Its up to you to decide whether I am sane or insane...Confuse bids you to have a nice day.

Jun-30-07  Atking: Strange that nobody comment on the similarity of this game and the last game of the match Carlsen vs Aronian. Aronian played immediately 11...f5 and got an advantage. Why Alexejew didn't play that move?
Jun-30-07  khursh: 43 .. bc4 was winning for Alekseev. I think psychology matters ... he was losing and was not able to shift his thinking from losing perspective to winning one.
Jun-30-07  percyblakeney: <43 .. bc4 was winning for Alekseev>

He could have played it also one move earlier, for example 42. ... Bc4 43. Rg1 c2 44. a6 Ne4 and black is winning.
