Kibitzer's Corner
Mar-31-13  John Abraham: Svidler beat Ivanchuk, and Ivachuk beat Carlsen, but Carlsen beat Svidler. So the best chess player in the world is obviously Peter Leko
Mar-31-13  Fish55: Ivanchuk has a special opening prepared for Kramnik. 1.f4 and if 1...e5, 2.g4
Mar-31-13  adrboliveira: <John Abraham> Hilarious!!! :D
Mar-31-13  Just Another Master: Chucky takes another dive tomorrow, Carlsen is gonna have to play great to beat Svidler.
Apr-01-13  morfishine: <John Abraham> Your logic is irrefutable

  Bobby Spassky: Actually Carlson and Kramnik both lost. An amazing April fools joke that was real.
Apr-01-13  RookFile: Svidler keeps getting better and better. He is a great chess professional.
Apr-02-13  bvwp: I like Svidler because he likes cricket so much. Striking that he's done much better than his ranking would suggest (which would have made him seventh out of eight).
