|Apr-27-11|| ||parmetd: drawn.|
|Apr-27-11|| ||eternaloptimist: yes kamsky repeats as u. s. chess champ! he did a brilliant job of neutralizing his opponents chances to win against him!|
|Apr-27-11|| ||talisman: Congratulations Gata!!!!!!! Topa betta geeta ready. played quick and confident today.|
|Apr-27-11|| ||Nietzowitsch: I don't see how white could make any progress in this position.|
|Apr-27-11|| ||Nietzowitsch: Yeah, congrats Gata for taking the cup a second time!|
|Apr-27-11|| ||ADDADZ: White waiting for hell|
|Apr-27-11|| ||tpstar: <chessgames.com> Thanks for the live broadcast. =)|
That's great how you let everybody watch. With your new software, will this be the same for the future?
Black's Bb4 + Pa5 really clamped down the Queenside.
|Apr-27-11|| ||eternaloptimist: thx cg for letting us non-premium members get a freebee today! it's been a pretty long time since i've watched a live game on cg.|
|Apr-27-11|| ||ADDADZ: thank youشكرا|
|Apr-27-11|| ||Ezzy: Yes, congrats to Kamsky for defending his title, but Shulman went down without any fight whatsoever.|
|Apr-27-11|| ||Penguincw: Well it's a draw.|
|Apr-27-11|| ||Marmot PFL: Too easy without Nakamura.|
|Apr-27-11|| ||dahtah: naka too scared for a possible match with kamsky..|
|Apr-27-11|| ||boz: A Kamsky-Naka match would be a fascinating way to settle the US championship. Those St. Louis patrons should think about putting up a prize fund for such a duel. I know I'd be glued to my screen.|
|Apr-27-11|| ||boz: <Marmot PFL: Too easy without Nakamura.>|
It is remarkable how easy Kamsky made it look. Congratulations to Gata!
|Apr-27-11|| ||nolanryan: our muslim soviet beat our jewish soviet
we are lucky to have both players!
|Apr-27-11|| ||HeMateMe: I bet they both prefer Wendy's to borscht.|
|Apr-27-11|| ||Helloween: <boz>It would make for a remarkable match, as both are clearly the top two U.S. Players, and the clash of age/experience versus unbridled youth, playing styles etc. would make for great drama. I would thoroughly enjoy it, as well, and my money would be on Naka!|

"A guy is trying to kill you in chess. He is trying to maim you intellectually." -M. Ashley>
Umm, not for me, and if Ashley really feels this way against his opponents, I would rather to never study his games, follow his career, listen to his commentary or buy a single book. I imagine he doesn't actually feel this way, yet thought it sounded cool. Let's hope so.
As Bronstein says, such sentiments toward one's opponent add up to "the impoverishment of chess."
|Apr-28-11|| ||lost in space: The expected end - a draw. White failed to create any advantage out of the opening, was already defensive in the middle game (Nb3, b3, Qd1) and can be happy that white avoided to play on with 2 bishops vs bishop + knight.|

Yah. Where is Nakamura ?

"After he played e4, I realized it was almost done."
- Gata Kamsky
|Apr-28-11|| ||Everett: This line is similar to the Smyslov/Lasker lines in the Slav with black using b4 as an anchor. The biggest difference is the time saved/slow development by keeping the B home on c8.|
|Apr-29-11|| ||lost in space: Well, that mybe is right, but how to go on without 7. e4 and build up pressure. Any proposal? 7. e3 and then what?|
