|Jun-16-12|| ||Tadeucouto: Great !
congratulation, mrs. Mac'Shane!
|Jun-16-12|| ||lost in space: <<whiteshark:> It should be enough for a win, shouldn't it?>|
It should! Shouldn't it?
|Jun-16-12|| ||apple scruffs: what a thrill!|
|Jun-16-12|| ||lost in space: 1:0! I should!!!!!!!|
|Jun-16-12|| ||Chessmensch: Dear and Glorious Position!!|
|Jun-16-12|| ||Check It Out: Well done Luke!!|
|Jun-16-12|| ||Pedro Fernandez: Mate in twelve says Nalimov|
|Jun-16-12|| ||Cemoblanca: Everyone thought that Vlad will win this, because there's no dancin' McShane! :D|
|Jun-16-12|| ||AuN1: hopefully kramnik comes back with a vengeance tomorrow. i'm afraid he'll be extra cautious and conservative though, which he usually is after he loses. i wonder what sort of mood caruana will be in. i don't think he'll give kramnik many chances. |
a real shame for kramnik; with a draw today he'd have been in excellent shape heading into the last two rounds with a half point lead over the field. now he's in a dogfight which isn't his specialty. he's much better as a front runner.
|Jun-16-12|| ||BlackSheep: Congrats go out to Mr. Mcshane|
|Jun-16-12|| ||RMKvdS: Where is the dancing Rook McShane?|
|Jun-16-12|| ||Memethecat: In hindsight kramnik should have took the draw, but I'm glad he didn't & we got to see a raw exciting human game.|
|Jun-16-12|| ||QueentakesKing: <AuN1> Copy.|
|Jun-16-12|| ||apple scruffs: <Chessmensch: Dear and Glorious Position>|
An allusion to Taylor Caldwell's novel about St. Luke, "Dear and Glorious Physician." Why did't I think of it first? Anyway, good one, Chessmensch, and I think that should be the pun for this game.
|Jun-16-12|| ||AuN1: typical kramnik; a no show after he loses. the grace and humility which other players display is not his forte.|
|Jun-16-12|| ||Marmot PFL: Kramnik skips the press conference. He must be exhausted.|
|Jun-16-12|| ||kb2ct: |
Glad they are playing it out, but slow and steady should do it.
|Jun-16-12|| ||Cemoblanca: Tomashevsky VS Moro 1:0!!! Wow! Now we have 5 players with 4 points (Moro, Magnus, Radjaboy, Vlad, Caruana)...|
|Jun-16-12|| ||jaseemalikt: The amateur who defeated Carlsen, Aronian and Kramnik!|
|Jun-16-12|| ||chessgames.com: Thanks to everybody for participating in today's live chess broadcast. |
After today's round we find ourselves in a massive 5-way tie for the lead among Radjabov, Kramnik, Morozevich, Caruana, and Carlsen all with 4/7. The final two rounds will be telling!
Stop by tomorrow morning at 7:00am USA/eastern for the exciting round #8 of the 2012 Tal Memorial. Our featured game will be Carlsen-Tomashevsky.
|Jun-16-12|| ||SamAtoms1980: <RMKvdS: Where is the dancing Rook McShane?>|
You should probably be a pro if you want to have your own rook. And this is coming from somebody who is generally in favor of each player having his own dancing rook.
|Jun-16-12|| ||Chessmensch: Thanks <apple scruffs:> I'm glad someone got it. In another game I once tried 'How are things in Nakamura"? but no-one seemed to pick up on that.|
|Jun-16-12|| ||Cemoblanca: <SamAtoms1980> Well, in my view McShane earned 2 dancin' photos today! :D|
|Jun-16-12|| ||AuN1: <Stop by tomorrow morning at 7:00am USA/eastern for the exciting round #8 of the 2012 Tal Memorial. Our featured game will be Carlsen-Tomashevsky.>|
last place vs. = 1st?
isn't there a more pertinent match up?
|Jun-16-12|| ||Pedro Fernandez: An end really hard to play. Now chess machines are unable to predict this result. IMO Electronics haven't any chance vs 100 billions/sec of bio-chemical nervous synapses working at 12% of its capacity. (CF.
