Kibitzer's Corner
Feb-13-06  jperr75108: I see there is alot of interest in the German Championship.
Feb-13-06  jamesmaskell: Germany has good players but this tournament isnt exactly packed to the rafters with big names...Naiditsch isnt there for one and hes the only German I know of...
Feb-13-06  iron maiden: Lutz and Huebner were both absent too.

  Dim Weasel: The opening choices are much more varied compared to the absolute top events.
Feb-14-06  DutchDunce: I've been noticing this. At the very top these days, you have the Ruy Lopez, Petroff, Sicilian, English, Slav, Queen's Indian and Nimzo. That's pretty much it. g6-Indians (KID/Grunfeld), e6-QGD's, the French and Caro-Kann have almost disappeared. I don't know if it's a matter of wanting to be trend setters, or whether the latter group of openings is just objectively worse.
Feb-14-06  Jim Bartle: Openings seem to go in cycles, I guess. Players tend to follow the lead of the top players, such as Kasparov with the Scotch and Evans Gambit (so said Alexei Shirov), though I don't know how true that is with Topalov, Anand, and, uh, you know (a certain player now taking time off to get healthy). I definitely have noticed the shortage of QGDs in recent play. I haven't seen any Botvinnik anti-Merans at all, maybe because it's analyzed to death and the memorization required doesn't appeal to that many players.

  Dim Weasel: The life-cycle of some sharp opening variations may also be quite funny: first they produce mostly decisive results and are feared amongst players, but after getting thoroughly analyzed (being so dangerous) they sometimes turn into drawing weapons.
Feb-15-06  s4life: <jamesmaskell: Germany has good players but this tournament isnt exactly packed to the rafters with big names...Naiditsch isnt there for one and hes the only German I know of...>

What? Artur Yusupov is there...
