|Apr-27-12|| ||Atking: I'm not interested by some casual psychological problems between Giri and Aronian but I appreciate the deep analysis Giri did of the games Kramnik-Aronian (To my point of view this work shows a lot respect for both players.).|
|Apr-27-12|| ||Nightsurfer: <Anish Giri> is - as we learn from the most recent report http://www.chessbase.com/newsdetail... - a fan of SHOGI too, and the same is true for our Queen Almira Skripchenko and for Maxime Vachier-Lagrave: The three of them have battled out a SHOGI-simul against SHOGI-<Meijin> Toshiyuki Moriuchi at Paris in the autumn of 2011, please check out once more again the reportage http://www.chessbase.com/newsdetail... that has published the records of the games!|
|Apr-27-12|| ||Nightsurfer: In case that you would ask how SHOGI looks like: Herewith a feature that the German-language program of <MTV>!! has aired on that great Japanese version of Chess, please turn to the link as follows http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o9eZ... .|
And there you will see Rene Gralla play a short game of a demonstration against <Daniel "Budi" Budiman>, herewith more information about the latter: http://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Daniel... , who is a very popular TV-journalist who covers electronic games in <MTV>'s magazine GAME ONE together with his partner <Simon Krätschmer>, herewith more information about <Simon Krätschmer>: http://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Simon_....
Both <Daniel "Budi" Budiman> and <Simon Krätschmer> have been the presenters of that very production on SHOGI http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o9eZ... that has been aired by <MTV>.

<Anish Giri: "Picked up the point in nice style, after Sokolov blew up himself in an ugly Catalan.">
"Ugly Catalan". Instead of the main line of the Catalan 6...dxc4, Sokolov chose a rare continuation 6...Nc6. In the position after 8.Bb2, last year he lost to Avrukh (an expert in the Catalan) in the Classical Dutch Stonewall 8...f5. In this game against Giri he opted for 8...b6 (to stay in "an ugly Catalan") and introduced a novelty 10...a5 (10...Qd7 was played before).
After two consecutive Sokolov's bad moves 16...g5?! (better was 16...Ne7) and 17...Nd6?! (better was 17...dxc4) Giri stood clearly better. In an inferior position Sokolov blundered 28...Qxb5?? (obviously, he should have exchanged the queens 28...Qxc2).

And why is Magnus Carlsen not playing in this event, it there a new poster boy in town?

Congratulations and may all those presents keep coming. :D)
|Jul-17-12|| ||delftfan: @voratco <And why is Magnus Carlsen not playing in this event, it there a new poster boy in town?>|
He does not need GP as he has already been qualified as world no. 1 for the candidate (I presume)....or am I wrong???
|Jul-17-12|| ||Eyal: <He does not need GP as he has already been qualified as world no. 1 for the candidate (I presume)....or am I wrong???>|
You're wrong about him already qualifying, but not about (probably) not needing the GP - it's a bit confusing when there are several cycles going on simultaneously... Carlsen qualified for the upcoming candidates tournament (London, March 2013), but the GP belongs to the cycle after that, and Carlsen hasn't qualified for the 2014 (?) candidates yet. Still, most likely he's counting on qualification by rating to that event as well when the time (i.e., relevant rating lists) comes. For that to happen he just needs to do reasonably well in the tournaments he's regularly invited to, rather than play 4 additional tournaments.
Assuming there will be 3 rating spots* for the candidates again, I suppose Aronian & Kramnik, who aren't participating either, count on that as well. And, of course, if any of these three players wins the upcoming candidates tournament - which seems likely - he'll qualify as a challenger, even if he loses to Anand in the next WC match (like Gelfand qualified for the upcoming candidates).
* According to the published FIDE regulations 2 players qualify from the GP, so judging by what's been going on in recent years I suppose that in addition it's going to be the winner of the world cup 2013, 3 by rating, the loser of the next WC match, and an organizer's nominee.
