Aug-12-12  frogbert: would've been more amazing if 6 of 10 would've been tied at +2, kinghunt...
Aug-12-12  Kinghunt: That was not a good wow.

  OBIT: I fully accept the argument that fighting draws are good chess. With that said, however, a draw rate of over 75% is intolerable.
Aug-12-12  Strongest Force: With 5 in playoffs, they should have round-robin blitz.
Premium Chessgames Member
  OBIT: 6 in the playoffs - Svidler joins the players with +1.
Aug-12-12  Strongest Force: Thx Obit. Svidler is a sneaky devil. :)
Premium Chessgames Member
  OBIT: This finish is another one of God's practical jokes.

  OBIT: <Strongest Force> Hmmm.... rearrange "devil" and add a couple letters, and you get "Svidler".

  tpstar: Great game Svidler!

Sr. Devil =)

Aug-12-12  jamesmaskell: Through ther magic of Google Translate: "More competition begins at 1 hour after the end of all political parties candidates". So I would guess that means the tiebreak is in an hour...

  Eyal: Funny how much better overall Svidler played during this tournament with Black rather than White (especially if one actually looks at the games and not just at their scores); reminds me a bit of his performance in the World Cup in this regard. And Grischuk's bad score against him continues.

  OBIT: <jamesmaskell> LOL on the translation. The programmers who designed the chess engines should tackle language translators next.
Aug-12-12  frogbert: alternatively that we're waiting for some political election. maybe the tiebreak is a political speech, and putin decides the winner?

  Eyal: According to Mark Crowther's twitter: <Russian #Chess Championship rapid playoffs postponed until 9am Moscow time 6am UK time [that's 1am EST]. Simply too many games to be played.> (

  kdogphs: <OBIT> That God's practical joke comment had me laughing incredibly hard
Aug-12-12  talisman: <<whiteshark> kinda of like that if i get a 3rd ex wife...OK let's not go there.
Aug-13-12  checkmateyourmove: Just when you think its a combo to win a rook , peter does it for position . The variation he chooses in this game , gives it a rose like smell .
Aug-14-12  vinidivici: wow wild game from svidler. Good game.
