  Eyal: <Radjabov-Wang Yue was a very quick draw and the reason seems to be that the Azeri grandmaster got confused about the opening. His opponent surprised him with the Queen’s Gambit Declined, which the Chinese had only played twice before in 2007, and despite the fact that he had played the position himself several times before, Radjabov apparently mixed up some moves to end up in a theoretical position that’s impossible to search for in the database because White is supposed to have the move there.

[see Opening Explorer, where it's <White's> turn to move - the same position reached in the game with 12.Bg5]

Bailing out with 13.Bxf6 and 14.d5 was a boring but understandable choice.> (

Yet another example of one of Radjabov's main weaknesses - the quality of his opening play as White...

  ROADDOG: <The game between Wang Yue and <Peter Leko> was mind-numbingly tediously to the extent that I rather feel both players shoud receive zero points for it.> <Malcolm Pein> Insert Radjabov in lieu of Leko and I think the statement applies to this game also.

  reyjf: No one seems to want to give Wang Yue any credit for his play.

  Marmot PFL: As Larsen used to say, I see no initiative, but maybe white can draw with a quick d5...
Oct-04-09  manakin: <reyjf> the way he's playing, i wouldn't be surprised if his bank refuses to give him credit
Oct-04-09  manakin: you go through this game, and you get the feeling both players as if thought to themselves: "what a mess! all those pieces all over the board, how can you think straight? let's get this cleared away, and that one too, oh, and this horsy thing...yeah baby, this chess game's fun..."
