Kibitzer's Corner
Premium Chessgames Member We now have the 2005 Czech championship games online. David Navara won this event on tiebreaks.
Feb-15-05  iron maiden: After Nakamura, Volokitin and Cheparniov, he's the fourth teenage winner of a major national championship in the last few months.
Feb-15-05  weirdoid: Boy, Milos Jirovsky drew all of his games! And not a single one of them even reached move 30! Look at Vokac vs M Jirovsky, 2005 in particular. I guess even the likes of Leko, Kramnik and Gelfand could learn something from this guy.
Feb-15-05  yoozum: Coming home from school to Czech on the results of the games was painful. The amount of short draws was unbelievable.
Feb-15-05  fgh: Does somebody know how many points is Navara scheduled to win after this tournament?
Feb-16-05  nikolaas: +4.1
Feb-16-05  Mameluk: It´s always hard to play your friends, and Karlovy Vary is so beautiful town, but if you want to see really super drawish tournament, see Czech championship 2004.

So Navara gains 4 points with 8/11 and loses 5 points from 0,5-1,5 against Shirov. It is evidently easier to gain elo from three 5 round tournaments than from one 15 round. I wonder whether is this right. I know that it´s because some exotic player would be rated 3200 after scoring some 25 of 27 in their national championship but still...

  WTHarvey: Best finish of the bunch is Petr Haba vs Jiri Lechtynsky, imo.
