Apr-14-06  Knight13: Pretty suprising how Ivanchuk can keep his 2700 rating when he's drawing against all these 2600s...
Apr-14-06  Ivan23: Chucky is +4 =5 at Kusadasi and is projected to win 1 ELO point so far.
Apr-14-06  acirce: Shows how very difficult it is even for great players to win big swisses like this, and why you can't expect them to do that other than now and then. Ivanchuk is performing above his rating and still is a whole point behind the leader, sharing 2nd place with 4 other players.
Apr-14-06  yalie: did anyone else notice .. no topalov / anand in Dortmund this year. only Kramnik / Leko among the regulars.
Apr-14-06  AlexandraThess: Kiril Georgiev is playing very strong in the endgames.Maybe the best player in the endgame at the moment. If you don't believe -check his games!
Apr-14-06  walker: something is wrong with the applet. is it me or the site is down?
Apr-14-06  Ivan23: <walker> I don't have any problems with viewing games today.
Apr-14-06  Ivan23: Belov-Kozul drawn too, look like I'll have a good day prediction wise.
Apr-14-06  mang00neg: Ivanchuk wins in perhaps the most straight-forward GM game I've seen.
Apr-14-06  Ivan23: Ivanchuk-Berescu 1-0

Kozul remains in lead with 8.5 and Ivanchuk trails by 1/2 point

Apr-14-06  whatthefat: Oh dear, I've gone from 3/4 winning bets yesterday to 0/7 today, lol! Damn this thing is addictive! :)
Apr-14-06  notyetagm: <whatthefat: Oh dear, I've gone from 3/4 winning bets yesterday to 0/7 today, lol!>

Chessbookie tells you: Where's my damn money?

Apr-14-06  notyetagm: How many rounds is this tournament?
Premium Chessgames Member
  WannaBe: <notyetagm> If you are winning in the ChessBookie Game there are not enough rounds, if you are losing, too many!
Apr-14-06  notyetagm: <Wannabe> The bookie always wins in the end, baby. :-)
Apr-14-06  OhoBoho: Breaking news: Topalov vs Kramnik in September
Apr-14-06  OhoBoho:
Apr-14-06  Ivan23: Last round pairings on top boards:

Kozul (8) - Izoria (7)
Belov (7) - Ivanchuk (7,5)
Inarkiev (7) - Nikolic (7)
Georgiev (7) - Gurevich (6,5)

Apr-14-06  Maroczy: Former European champion Macieja has played some tough draws vs. Jobava, Shanava and Gurevitch. He's having one of his best efforts in a long time.
Apr-14-06  notyetagm: <Ivan23: Last round pairings on top boards:>

I thought this tournament was 13 rounds? This is only rounds 11.

Apr-15-06  Ivan23: <notyetagm> Only 11 rounds will be played. Last round today, tie-breakers in Sunday and closing ceremony and departures in Monday (hence Apr 4 - Apr 17).
Apr-15-06  Ivan23: Kozul-Izoria drawn after 5 minutes and 10 moves played. Ivanchuk needs a win with Black in an Exchange Slav against Belov to share 1st place with Kozul.
Apr-15-06  whatthefat: Well, I decided to give Georgiev one last chance to win me back my chessbucks. Unfortunately, I overlooked the fact that HE'S SOFT AS ANYTHING AND CAN ONLY LAST 9 MOVES AS WHITE!! Ahem... excuse me.. getting all worked up here...

Serenity now.

  keypusher: Belov appears to have no objection to a draw, but Ivanchuk seems to be trying to win.

<whatthefat> LOL. Glancing over Georgiev's games so far, I am sure he was very tired.

Apr-15-06  whatthefat: <keypusher>
Yeah, I know, it's actually a pretty impressive result for him. Just a shame he had to cost me about a grand of imaginary money along the way.
