|Nov-18-08|| ||CapAnson: I remember this guy as a little kid playing in scholastic events just a fw years ago in the US, now he's trashing world class GMs.. amazing.. I'm always astounded when I can beat little kids, then they just blow past me in ability..|
|Nov-18-08|| ||computer chess guy: 10. ♗b5 had been played previously and White did ok, for example Glek vs Votava, 2000. Caruana very accurately exploited Adams's weak pawns starting with 36. .. ♕b5.|
|Nov-18-08|| ||PhilFeeley: Weird castling. I guess after Anand doesn't do it in the WC, everyone else wants to try!|
|Nov-18-08|| ||PhilFeeley: <CapAnson> We have somebody like that here in Vancouver: Jonah Lee. He played in the World Juniors under-8 category and came in 7th (tied 5th on points) out of 80 players! (http://wycc2008.vietnamchess.com/in...) I played him once (and only once) and just managed to win. But I could tell he will progress beyond me. I hope he gets the chance. Canada isn't known for its chess players.|

My friend Jerry Giambo's son played Caruana in a kids tournament many years ago, and now Caruana defeats 2700-rated Micheal Adams.

Adams won the 2nd Ruy Lopez Masters tournament held in Mérida, Spain, 4–13 April 2008, scoring 5˝/7 to finish a half point ahead of Zhang Pengxiang. The tournament was an eight player round-robin with an average rating of 2616 (FIDE category 15).In August 2008, there was a second successive victory in the Staunton Memorial. Adams finished on 8/11, ahead of Loek Van Wely (7˝/11) and Jan Smeets (7/11). He followed this with a share of second place at the 4th EU Individual Open Chess Championship in Liverpool, joining Viktor Laznicka and Nigel Short on 7˝/10 (after winner Jan Werle, 8/10).
|Nov-18-08|| ||Shams: 10 of black's first 20 moves were knight moves|
|Nov-19-08|| ||GBKnight: Quite apart from the players, this looks like a superb and very thematic French Defence game by black. Maybe white was a bit too obliging, but black's position always seemed to be under control, which is not easy in the French.|
|Nov-26-08|| ||Honza Cervenka: Nice French in good old-fashioned positional style. If someone would ask me who played with black here and I did not know it I would have guessed that black was Petrosian.|
|Nov-26-08|| ||Honza Cervenka: <PhilFeeley: Weird castling. I guess after Anand doesn't do it in the WC, everyone else wants to try> This is nothing new in French. See J B Bednarski vs Petrosian, 1968 for just one example.|

Same line, opposite result
<slomarko: Adams is a "has been".>
Adams +3 -1 in this match-up, so I guess be is not.
