|Nov-27-14|| ||pinoymaster77: PYG,
So en toto Vishy's former Trainer GM Thipsay thinks AGE was a factor, while Anand shares its also a matter of NERVEs, mabigat yun kasi how does one overcome that? Need a team of pshycologist / mental experts team for the preparation?
Interesting observation naman from Fabiano that he thinks the Sicilian Paulsen did Vishy in, hmmmm... Im in no position to comment, mga analysts mas may K
For the next 'Challengers' circle' of Anand Caruana Aronian Grischuk, who would have the upperhand? Lets see sa next World Cup / Candidates Matches
|Nov-27-14|| ||Pulo y Gata: No, no. Nerves is also connected to age. Didn't a veteran GM mention this in one of your get-togethers? You feel the pressure more, and sometimes your hands tremble. |
Carlsen was more forthright:<"Anand has been a very strong player, a great champion, no doubt, but he is about to turn 45.
"His nervous system is weaker than before, and that was one of the deciding factors".>
Note the use of <has been> and the conclusion of age.
|Nov-27-14|| ||pinoymaster77: Ayun ang age factor, di ko na tanda ahehe.
Si AFGM ba nagsabi? Because at present day, I tend to still separate the 2 (age and nerves) with my impression of AFGM, he has indeed aged, but seems to me steady pa rin sya, or maybe keeps a 'cool outlook'. Whats still fresh with me are the 2 BOGMs where he qualified for the last 2 Olympiads eh.
But then again AFGM is an exception, as at age 62 he can still compete and keep up with the younger ones in Open competition, not yet time for the Seniors chess competitions.
|Nov-27-14|| ||pinoymaster77: Saka 45 pa lang pala si Vishy, and > 15 yrs gap nila ni AFGM, impression ko nag abot sila ni AFGM but maybe that time AFGM was in his 30s while the emerging Anand was in his teens...|
Kung tutuusin, 'bata' pa si Vishy for the sentimentalists, but maybe too much to ask for, kung sa current World Championship level ?
|Nov-27-14|| ||bubuli55: To AFGM Eugene at buo ng iyong pamilya, kasama ang lahat ng GETS, |
|Nov-27-14|| ||kardopov: It will be a miracle if Anand can get past ahead of the blood thirst youngsters. For me, he will be one of the past champions, no more, no less. It will be difficult for him to compete against young guns because of his age. He'll be two years older come next cycle and surely will improve numerically with his age but not with his skill.|
|Nov-27-14|| ||Pulo y Gata: That's the very thing that was said of him before he bulldozed his way during the Candidates to win the right to challenge Carlsen. Someone has to step up if he does not want to see Carlsen-Anand III.|
|Nov-27-14|| ||pinoymaster77: bubuli55, Ive been reading about the nationwide protests as offshoot of Ferguson incident, and hopefully the snow and rain is not in your part of Texas.|
|Nov-27-14|| ||pinoymaster77: PYG / Kardz,
Siguro observe pa din elite events na laruan Vishy with the youngsters / 2800 club. Will he also start playing in the World Cup, its not peanuts money and might be worth his time.
|Nov-27-14|| ||Nf3em: Maligayang bigayang-pasasalamat sa lahat diyan sa US ... lalo na kila sir <iskubadayb>, sir <bubuli>, sir <minicooper>, atbp. |
|Nov-27-14|| ||Nf3em: sa mga nasa Pilipinas, nalalapit na ang kaarawan ng karamihan sa ika-30 ng Nobyembre ... peace!|
|Nov-27-14|| ||kardopov: kardopov: I will not rule out the possibility of another stint and surely a great miracle if it happens. But he will be two years older by then, one of the weakening factor, and have to contend with the surging caruana, the strongest player touted as the worthiest challenger to maggy. Caruana wasn't around during the time anand is buldozing the opposition in the last candidate.|
|Nov-27-14|| ||kardopov: After the two sound beating from Maggy, I don't think Anand has enough gas left to motivate himself for another fight. If he won't have stellar performance in his future events this coming year, then it is all over for for him.|
|Nov-27-14|| ||Pulo y Gata: But this was a better performance than their first match! At least he won a game and could have even won another in game 6. God knows what would have happened if he won that pivotal game.|
Surely Carlsen is a difficult opponent for him. But we will see. Maybe he could pull off a miracle. Very difficult, but it won't be a miracle otherwise.
But I wonder if this group called BW-GETS has any party before the year ends. I want to attend and meet people. :-)
|Nov-27-14|| ||perfidious: <Pulo y Gata> We would not be speaking of the sixth game if not for the monumental double blunder, for that would have gone down as a prosaic win; at the same time, Carlsen missed a golden chance in the very first game. Hypotheses of what might have been are always possible, if not necessarily fruitful in nature.|
|Nov-27-14|| ||Nf3em: <But I wonder if this group called BW-GETS has any party before the year ends. I want to attend and meet people. :-)> me too, it's been quite some time already since the last one that I attended ... too bad I'll be there for a very short vacation just before christmas :(|
|Nov-27-14|| ||Pulo y Gata: <perfidious> You are quite correct, and doubtless arguments and counter-arguments could arise for those who are willing. I was just saying that Anand had a better chance this time than on their first match, and in the scale of importance, game 6 was a definite game-changer. Kramnik, who knows a thing or two about chess match pyschology, had this to say:|
<Svidler: How do you recover after such a blunder?
Kramnik: In my experience, you don't!>
IF Carlsen lost that, it surely would have been a big blow to his confidence (the effect to Anand's confidence is, perhaps, inversely proportional). But we can only imagine. :)
|Nov-27-14|| ||bubuli55: PM77. Salamat. Ayos lang dito. Medyo tama ang kalamigan. |
Salamat din, NF3em :)
|Nov-28-14|| ||perfidious: <Pulo y Gata> You are likely familiar with Fischer's blunder in a simple pawn ending against Letelier, a line easier by far to see than what went in game six recently.|
Have you ever played through Redolfi-Fischer played the following round, a weak effort by Black in which his opponent blundered in a won position and handed over a full point? If someone like Fischer could encounter difficulties bouncing back from such an error, might happen to anyone.
|Nov-28-14|| ||torrefan: <We would not be speaking of the sixth game if not for the monumental double blunder,>|
It was not a double blunder. Carlsen made a move which could have cost him the game. That was a blunder.
Anand didn't see the winning move but he was not necessarily lost after that. So that was only a blinder, not a blunder.
|Nov-28-14|| ||SugarDom: I make a lot blinders, but not blunders. har|
|Nov-28-14|| ||spawn2: One of the most loved PBA player and one of GM Eugene's fellow Pagpupugay awardee, Samboy "Skywalker" Lim was rushed to the hospital last night when he collapsed in an exhibition game.|
Let's offer a prayer for his immediate recovery.
|Nov-28-14|| ||bubuli55: Basta gamyang bigla na lang nagkolaps at walang medical problems gaya ng diyabitis kadalasan sa puso yan|
|Nov-28-14|| ||pinoymaster77: Nabasa ko nga spawn2 sa spin.ph yung kay Samboy. Playing in a legends game pala, and he has history of asthma.|
Our prayers for Samboy's recovery.
|Nov-28-14|| ||pinoymaster77: Dun sa yearenders will watchout for the regular Fiancheto / ETCF event, sana ok sa skeds.|
