|May-17-12|| ||talisman: well vishy tried.|
|May-17-12|| ||Richard Taylor: < waustad: <RT>That was my guess too. >|
The joys of trivia!
Svidler tomorrow. Let's hope that they give him something to work with.
|May-17-12|| ||GiuocoPianoMan: Oh good. If Garry is here, I wont be the only one with rude comments. Got to love Kasparov.|
|May-17-12|| ||MarkFinan: I like draws like Indiana Jones likes snakes!!|
|May-17-12|| ||Sneaky: Wow, surprise visit from Kasparov would be great. Although I'm sure if he shows up it will only be to promote his latest project ;-)|
Thanks Natalia, see you again tomorrow.
|May-17-12|| ||OhioChessFan: Vishy win, over 42. There goes 400 chessbucks.|
|May-17-12|| ||Richard Taylor: Who is Kasparov?|
|May-17-12|| ||LIFE Master AJ: This has been my experience with 11.c4 in blitz on the Internet ... alot of draws, especially when playing someone who is determined not to lose.|
|May-17-12|| ||paulalbert: I just got here to discover everybody has already gone home. At least it was a Sicilian, which maybe is some progress. Although I am in agreement with the desirability of having a head to head match to determine the World Champion, the reality is that a fixed number of games and the consequent conservative match strategy ( rather than a required number of wins format which is just not practical from an organizer perspective ) can produce somewhat uninteresting games from a fan perspective, even if the objective quality and theoretical opening knowledge contribution is quite high.|
|May-17-12|| ||Mr. Bojangles: <Wow, surprise visit from Kasparov would be great. Although I'm sure if he shows up it will only be to promote his latest project ;-)>|
or promote his latest ego.
|May-17-12|| ||Domdaniel: I hope that this will put nonsense like 1.e4 out of contention for the rest of the match.|
e4 is far too useful a pawn break to waste on your first move.
|May-17-12|| ||Tabanus: Yes <Dom> besides it can be answered by 1...e6, so what's the point. :)|
|May-17-12|| ||samikd: <natalia pogonina> , <jennifer shahade> ,and the other Kibitzers.. did anybody talk about the possibility of <Ra6> instead of <Bh3> by White ?|
|May-17-12|| ||Marmot PFL: Doesn't matter what first move is played. All lines from the initial position have been so heavily analyzed that if a strong player wants a draw he has a good chance of getting it.|
|May-17-12|| ||boz: <Natalia Pogonina: I have also heard that Kasparov would show up tomorrow - surprise visit. Hope the information is correct, because it hasn't bee published officially.>|
I dare them to agree to an early draw with Kasparov glaring at them from the sidelines.
|May-17-12|| ||scormus: Damn! I was busy and only just tuned in, I see the game is finished and I missed it.|
|May-17-12|| ||technical draw: According to some Gelfand should have been losing by now, on the ropes, begging for mercy, confirming his air ticket to Israel, etc etc. Five games and all is the same as in the beginning. Anand lives in Spain, didn't I see him near the Iberia Airlines office?|
|May-17-12|| ||lost in space: again too late! Dammed space bar!|
|May-17-12|| ||HeMateMe: In game five, did the players deviate at all from earlier played games? In other words, are there any sort of TNs in this game five?|
|May-17-12|| ||Ulhumbrus: <Natalia Pogonina: I have also heard that Kasparov would show up tomorrow - surprise visit. Hope the information is correct, because it hasn't bee published officially.> Do you mean at this website or at the Tretyakov gallery?|
|May-17-12|| ||Ulhumbrus: 10 Bxf6 concedes the bishop pair.
An alternative to 13 g3 is 13 Be2 followed by Bg4 exchanging the white squared bishops.
If White cannot get enough useful work out of his KB after 17 cxd5, two alternative to 17 cxd5 are 17 Qxd5 and 17 exd5 followed by a3 or even f4.
|May-17-12|| ||kingscrusher: At least it was an exciting Sicilian variation today. |
Do you think Kasparov could beat one of these two players in a match format like this?!
|May-17-12|| ||boz: No one can know, Kingcrusher, but I am sure Kasparov would be prepared to take some risks.|
|May-17-12|| ||kevin86: Quick Draw McGraw couldn't draw quicker than these two. Maybe they should get paid by the hour.|
|May-17-12|| ||Abraxas79: This is why Chess can never be taken seriously as a sport or even serious competition. These two are a disgrace and embarrassment truly. Can you imagine sponsoring this ? What other sport can you think of where the players can just decide they really don't feel like competing today. Imagine paying thousand of dollars to go view a world boxing championship with ringside seats only to have the two boxers decide in the first round they really don't feel like boxing today, so the match is called a tie. LOL. |
We will probably get one decisive result before the "match" is completed. Wake up me when it happens.
