Jan-04-06  hintza: <tamar> Haha :)

<TIMER> Sometimes great things happen accidentally!

Premium Chessgames Member
  tamar: <Timer> Your assessments are shrewd, or at least I agree with most of them :)

Ponomariov-Rublevsky could produce high quality chess, as both are peaking right now. Edge to Pono, as he has experience getting together a team to maximize his preparation.

Jan-05-06  refutor: the top bracket is the strongest easily, who knows though...i might underestimate carlsen all the way to the finals ;)

leko should win the second

not sure about the third

and in an upset, i predict bacrot to come out of the fourth

Jan-05-06  veigaman: In the first round in tripoli Aronian and carlsen played and it was an extremely difficult match for both player and aronian was able to win just in the last game of the series!. I think Carlsen can be a painfull nail!
Jan-05-06  Udit Narayan: Those Candidate matches look very interesting. I am looking forward to some exciting chess!
Feb-04-06  jamesesq: itedig to use the aethesis!

Yes but I dont have the symbols on my keyboard.

You pack of kinky kipper robbers...

Feb-13-06  Bobak Zahmat: Carlsen will survive Candidates and qualify for 2007 Worldchampionship.
Feb-13-06  talisman: what if baseball would drop the world series and go to a 8-team tournament? i think fide loses a lot when you eliminate the championship match. you lose a lot of history.if it's tournament excitement they want=CANDIDATES TOURNAMENT,then a CHAMPIONSHIP MATCH.sounds like the old days.
Feb-13-06  Jim Bartle: I agree with talisman. Interzonal/candidates/championship match is the way to go. Best part is the tension grows over time, not just for two weeks.

In fact, baseball has really diluted its excitement by expanding the playoffs from 4 to 8 teams each year. So many teams qualify that real pennant races between good teams just don't exist any more.

Feb-13-06  Bobak Zahmat: I think no matter what happens, the next World Championship tournament will be played.
Mar-07-06  s4life: <refutor: the top bracket is the strongest easily, who knows though...i might underestimate carlsen all the way to the finals ;)>

The strongest? only because of Aronian. He has it easy here... two has-beens and an unexperienced kid won't hold him.

<leko should win the second > Maybe Polgar pulls an upset here... hopefully.

<not sure about the third > The third one is actually the strongest and most balanced bracket. Hard to predict, but Pono has a slight advantage

<and in an upset, i predict bacrot to come out of the fourth> Rather than an upset it seems the most natural outcome.

Mar-07-06  iron maiden: Obviously a lot can change in six months, but here are my predictions for the first set of matches, with regard to the players' current form:

Aronian-Carlsen 3.5-2.5
Leko-Gurevich 3.5-1.5
Ponomariov-Rublevsky 3.5-2.5
Gelfand-Kasimjanov 3.5-2.5.
Bacrot-Kamsky 3-3 (I would give Kamsky the better chances in tie-breaks) Grischuk-Malakhov 3-3 (Grischuk wins tie-breaks)
Polgar-Bareev 3.5-2.5
Shirov-Adams 2-4

Apr-06-06  Bobak Zahmat: Aronian vs Carlsen will surely be the greatest match of the Candidates. Those two are well suited for each other, it can go all the way. Both have great growing potential. I think the match will be decided in the tiebreaks.
Apr-06-06  Bobak Zahmat: Leko should obviously beat Gurevich without too much difficulties.

Ponomariov vs Rublevsky is also hard to predict, but Ruslan has the edge of playing more this kind of games.

Gelfand vs Kasimzhanov is very interesting match. But Gelfand should be able to win this mini match.

Apr-06-06  Bobak Zahmat: Bacrot will easily beat Kamsky. Since Kamsky has returned at the top stage, he has had a hard time and Bacrot is a enormous talented player.

Polgar vs Bareev will probably the first decisive match. Polgar should prove herself as the leading femal player.

Grischuk is also a bit too strong for Malakhov probably, but he has still do it of course.

Last but not least, Shirov vs Adams, well this is gonna be one the most attacking matches hopefully. Adams in good form should come out as winner.

Apr-06-06  babakova: If Kamsky gets closer to his old form, Bacrot will not have an easy opponent.
Apr-07-06  Bobak Zahmat: <babakova> That can be true, but only time will learn. By the way they play against each other also at MTel Masters, so let's wait and see.
May-22-06  John Abraham: Kamsky is back in the driver's seat !!!

May-22-06  cotdt: ponpmariov will have a hard time against rublevsky, and kamsky will crush bacrow like he did to kramnik and short.
May-25-06  Bobak Zahmat: It is still unclear whether the Candidates will be played and if so when it will take place?
Aug-14-06  Bobak Zahmat: I was really looking forward for the Candidate Matches, but I think the suggestion of possible cancellation is correct. I guess if the Candidates won't take place in October, or for my matter in 2006, FIDE will have a huge problem. Because then we can be sure next year's Worldchampionship Tournament also be cancelled.

FIDE has focused all their attention to the Kramnik - Topalov match, but they think other players forgot the Candidates. The later FIDE gives explanation, the worse the problem gets. If FIDE fails to organize the Candidates, I think we might get a even greater chaos in the Chess World than we already have.

Sep-26-06  samsal27: <If FIDE fails to organize the Candidates, I think we might get a even greater chaos in the Chess World than we already have.> I hope not.
May-29-07  scholes: what was carlsen final place in this tournament ? he beated several of players who are playing in candidates
May-29-07  Karpova: Place 10 after losing to Kamsky:
Jul-23-09  returnoftheking: Ponomariov tied here and lost the additional rapid games - a bit like recently at Donostia. If only he'd be (even more) strong at rapid-he'd be winning titles again in no time!;)
