Mar-19-04  shr0pshire: Thanks I always like viewing and analyzing rapid games as well as traditional time controls.
Mar-19-04  michlo:, what of the game in which Carlsen beat Karpov?
Mar-19-04  Stavrogin: will there be livechess today? At what site?
And: which will the match ups be?
Grateful for answers.
Mar-19-04  ruylopez900: Way to go Carlsen! Great showing, even though he's not contending for first. Beating Karpov....Drawing Kasparov I mean people at Linares were more then happy with results like that. Carlsen must be eccstatic!
Mar-19-04  Stavrogin: But Kasparov also beat him.
Is there a scoretable to be found anywhere?
And what will happen today?
Mar-19-04  Drstrangelove: <Stavrogin> heres some info
Mar-19-04  Stavrogin: I understand the games started 10 minutes ago... (correct?). Is there a site where I can follow the games live?
Thank you Drstrangelove, appreciate it. But the "live games" just shows the final standings on the karpov-game... Is it just that it hasnīt started yet?
Mar-19-04  Drstrangelove: I think they start at 3:00 est, but I could be totally wrong. If anyone knows... Heres the site though
Mar-19-04  MoonlitKnight: <michlo> The game where Carlsen beat karpov was 5-minute blitz, and the moves were not recorded, but he won a piece and simplified to an easy win.

<ruylopez900> Actually, Carlsen was just as much dissapointed by not winning as he was happy for drawing. He is a perfectionist, obviously.

Mar-20-04  ruylopez900: <MoonlitKnight> I stand corrected =D. At least he shows disdain for draws, even with Kasparov, unlike other GMs.
Mar-20-04  steven18: Anyone know what the first prize is for this tourney?
Mar-21-04  Drstrangelove: Kaspy beats Short 1.5-.5 It was interesting to watch, Short had a won posistion in game one and just gave it away to Kasparov and then Kasparov had a totally won position in game two and allowed a draw. Either way he walks away the champ so...
Mar-21-04  Pall: It was a nice tournament.(I was there and got autographs from Timman, Short and Kasparov). Overall a very good tournament. And I only watched a third of the blitz games so dont ask me about them.
Mar-21-04  TheTurk: -
i repeat for michlo and my self
"what of the game in which Carlsen beat Karpov?"
Mar-21-04  Calchexas: <TheTurk>:

Read MoonlitKnight's post above.

Mar-21-04  TheTurk: calchexas, yes yes, but why isnt the game posted here? id like to see it! its not even posted on carlsen's page.
Mar-21-04  Taidanii: Kasparov is tearing this one up. Rapid seems to be his forte'
Mar-22-04  Pall: The moves were not recorded. And even if you had the moves the computers were junk and they never showed anything correct.
Mar-22-04  ruylopez900: Congrats to Kasparov for getting back to his winning ways. Hopefully for him he can continue his run of good performance (ok, =2nd at Linares and 1st at Reykjavik isn't quite a streak yet). Good showing to Short as well, I do believe it's been a while since he competed at this level.
Mar-22-04  TheTurk: ruy: yes it has. chessbase was recently talking about how short would have to soon be back at the supergm level if he wanted any competition, considering the way he's been humerderlizing his opponents lately.
Mar-22-04  Taidanii: How old is Karpov now?
Premium Chessgames Member
  Benzol: <Taidanii> Karpov was on 23rd of May 1951 so he will be 53 this May.
Mar-23-04  Taidanii: Hmm...53 isn't so bad, I suppose.
Premium Chessgames Member
  tamar: <taidanii> Ages are interesting to compare. At Karpov's age right now, 52, Emanuel Lasker (born Dec 24,1868) was contesting Capablanca in Havana. It was a low point in his career, not winning a game, and considered surpassed by the new generation, but he came back to win New York 1924 ahead of Capablanca. So you never know...
Mar-24-04  ruylopez900: <tamar> Not only did he finish 1st ahead of Capablanca, but also what is considered the strongest field ever. Reti, Alekhine, Tartakower, Marshall, Yates, Bogojibulow, Edward Lasker, Janowski and Maroczy. Considering the whole field makes the win that much sweeter!
