  Jim Bartle: You call these guys elite players? Ivanchuk missed a table-base win on move 112, and Leko on moves 145 and again on move 158! Embarrassing.
Nov-22-07  Messiah: Sry for my bad English.

During the transmission I was frightened by that Leko found that great draw with cca 0.5 secundum of thinking.

Nov-22-07  HOTDOG: 215 moves in about 5 minutes is amazing...

Nov-23-07  jamesmaskell: I think the TC was 4 minutes plus 2 secs increment per move. They must have been shattered after this game!
Nov-23-07  anandrulez: <Jim Bartle: You call these guys elite players? Ivanchuk missed a table-base win on move 112, and Leko on moves 145 and again on move 158! Embarrassing.> Its blitz my friend

Did you hear that whooshing sound? It was the joke flying over your head.

  acirce: "Blitz", so what? Thanks to the increment they had at least 2 whole SECONDS to think on every single move. Why would any 2750+ player need more than that? Standards are going down, I tell you...Fischer and Capablanca would have wiped the floor with these guys.
Nov-23-07  rover: Another boring draw. These so called "elite" players really need to try harder or we'll never see chess games on prime time TV.
Nov-23-07  apple pi: Is the footage of this game accessible to the public?
Nov-25-07  capablancakarpov: < Jim Bartle: You call these guys elite players? Ivanchuk missed a table-base win on move 112> A tablebase win with 8 pieces on the board? Are you from the future? Such tablebases donīt exist yet! Anyway, the full post was a nonsense.

  Jim Bartle: Thanks, it was intended to be nonsense.
Nov-25-07  capablancakarpov: In move 213 Ivanchuk missed a beautiful win with 213.Re5! Qc6(Qd8 doesnīt work) 214.Be4 Qd7 215.Bg6 and black must give the Queen for the Rook to avoid mate. Anyway, astonishing how this supermen can play so good and so fast, unbelievable.
Nov-25-07  Resignation Trap: <capablancakarpov> Did you finish a complete analysis to this game already? You are fast!
Nov-26-07  capablancakarpov: <Resignation Trap> LOL... Not, serious now, when i said that i was astonished about their play under such conditions, i wasnīt saying that their play was perfect, iīm sure that there are a lot of mistakes, what i wanted to say is that they play extraordinary well having only about 4 seconds of thinking per move.
Mar-22-08  Wone Jone: Are we there yet?
Jan-14-09  WhiteRook48: what a Stalemate swindle!
Feb-06-09  WhiteRook48: Nice game
Feb-20-09  WhiteRook48: was there any way that Ivanchuk could have avoided the draw?
