|Jan-17-13|| ||boz: In Sokolov-Aronian, Sokolov has sacrificed a piece for two connected passed pawns in the centre.|
|Jan-17-13|| ||Eyal: <chessdgc2> We were hoping that the live broadcast of cg.com itself would switch to Karjakin-Giri... but in any case you can follow all the games live at http://www.tatasteelchess.com/tourn...|
|Jan-17-13|| ||Eyal: <Suicide watch back up for Sokolov> Heh - after missing the win against Nakamura in the 2nd round he told the interviewer "If I don't kill myself tonight, I will live for a thousand years"...|
|Jan-17-13|| ||OneArmedScissor: Let's get a new game up in here|
|Jan-17-13|| ||FSR: <OhioChessFan: Wow, how many plies did Houdini need for that? Seems not much more than a Thursday puzzle.>|
It says "Depth = 22." Does that mean 22 plies? Its assessment of 23.f5 is now +1.11.
|Jan-17-13|| ||Cemoblanca: As I saw the Petroff today, I gave not more than 30 moves for this game. A clever "chess move" by both, but disappointing for the chess peeps outta there. Let's switch to Ivan VS Levon.|
|Jan-17-13|| ||Cemoblanca: Where the hell is Ivan??? :D The game is over! 0-1.|
|Jan-17-13|| ||Cemoblanca: Karjakin VS Giri: 17 moves are played. Time Control: 1:16 VS 0:12!!! ;) Man, what's going on here today! :D|
|Jan-17-13|| ||FSR: <OhioChessFan> At "Depth = 24," Houdini 3 now assesses 23.f5 as +1.27.|
|Jan-17-13|| ||whiteshark: Anand comments on this draw: http://www.youtube.com/watch?featur...|
|Jan-17-13|| ||poconochess: CG: PLEASE post another game.|
|Jan-17-13|| ||achieve: Very instructive comments by Anand; essentially that's all the commentary and analysis you need. |
Brilliant, just after the game, en passant, in 1.41 seconds!
Anand is BACK
|Jan-17-13|| ||achieve: 1.41 minutes!*|
|Jan-17-13|| ||LucB: <Cemoblanca: <LucB: <Cemoblanca: The video live stream runs on my iPhone <LucB>. Very comfortable. ;)>
Hmm maybe it's a MAC-PC thing. Time to borrow my daughter's MB pro! :D>|
I had the same problems with the Opera Browser, but after installing the Flash Player for Internet Explorer everything runs fine now. Just want to let you know.>
Thanks, I'll give that a try. I use Opera also, so it could be that..
|Jan-17-13|| ||Cemoblanca: No problem <LucB>. :)|
More info for this issue could be found here: http://my.opera.com/community/forum...
|Jan-17-13|| ||haydn20: Per Anand, MC played a drawish set-up and he (Anand) couldn't find satisfactory activity. Maybe 12. Bg5 Bd7 13. Bc4 Ng6 14. Qd2 keeps a small initiative?|
|Jan-17-13|| ||goldenbear: Has White really lost his chances here? If 24.Bc5, then 25.b4 Bb6 26.h4 looks good, intending h5 and R1e7. If I were Black I would be worried, but then again I'm not 2800 either.|
|Jan-17-13|| ||IndigoViolet: Ah well, back to mortality for Vishy. I await the inevitable video in which he bewails Magnus for steering the game clear of his computer preparation.|
|Jan-17-13|| ||FSR: Anand could've tried 5.Nc3, but he probably figured Carlsen had an improvement on A Zapata vs Anand, 1988 ready.|
|Jan-17-13|| ||bharatiy: did Carlsen chicken out today, he ran from getting into real fight!|
|Jan-17-13|| ||Fanques Fair: I think 18- Nd4 or even 18- Na4 could pose more problems for Carlssen, if only not to exchange everything on d5 and reach a drawn endgame.|
|Jan-17-13|| ||mrbasso: This is nonsense. Anand chickened out. 18.Na4 is nothing but 18.Nd4 was possible.|
|Jan-17-13|| ||Absentee: Likely a courtesy draw, since Carlsen was visibly ill.|
|Jan-18-13|| ||achieve: KKDEREK - exactly right.
<visibly ill> Rubbish comment. Young guy has sort of flu-like symptoms, - I didn't see him blow his nose, did he have a "temperature"? - and his rival would give him the soft treatment?
|Jan-18-13|| ||Absentee: I have to admit I didn't see him puke on the board either. We'll have to ask Anand.|
