Aug-02-06  cuendillar: An intriguing triangle is completed. Carlsen-Morozevich 2-0, Morozevich-Volokitin 2-0, Volokitin-Carlsen 2-0.
Aug-02-06  Kelvieto: Moro's hasn't made a single draw so far in this tournament! This was probably more unlikely than the Carlson-Morozevich-Volokitin triangle
Aug-02-06  NormanLuis: It's crazy, no draw for 9 rounds for Moro!!!!!!! I guess tomorrow's game will be decisive too.
Aug-02-06  wallytherhino: dortmund is a category 19 event. what category is this event?
Aug-02-06  aragorn69: <<Confuse:> In any case, Morozevich is rock, Carlsen is paper, and Volokitin is scissors.> Well put!!! LOL
Aug-02-06  chessmoron: <wallytherhino> Biel is Category XVII (17).
Aug-02-06  wallytherhino: <chessmoron> thank you! Moro would still dominate even at a higher category of tournament and his proven that. Moro is so amazing when he is feeling his chess mojo.
Aug-03-06  crazy monk: <I am beginning to think that "Sparkassen" must be German for "Festival of Draws".> with drawko and svidraw, I'm not surprise at all at the draw rate. (48% and 46% drawing rate respectively). Surprisingly Kramnik don't deserved the "drawnik" title, his drawing rate only 42.6% just slightly higher than average GM (40-42%).
Aug-03-06  Manequinho: How could Radjabov accept a draw in the tenth move? Many times we don't see "fair play" in chess. The man could reach first position if he beat Moro! Ending in second place is being the first from the lasts...
Aug-03-06  mikejaqua: <Manequinho> Raja could only have gotten 6.5 points by beating Moro. And Moro already had 7. So Moro has 1st place locked up going into this final round.
Aug-03-06  DCP23: <Manequinho>: <How could Radjabov accept a draw in the tenth move?>

He did not ACCEPT the draw, he OFFERED it.

<Many times we don't see "fair play" in chess. The man could reach first position if he beat Moro!>

No, he could not. Moro is on the 1st place REGARDLESS of the outcome of this game.

Aug-03-06  Manequinho: Yeap, my mistake. I thought Moro had 7 points after this draw.
Aug-03-06  Manequinho: Anyway, if I spent real money in a beting for a game like this I would be really mad...
Aug-03-06  mikejaqua: I do note though that Carlsen can catch up to Raja now that Raja has taken this draw.

Aug-03-06  gmgomes: How strong is Pelletierīs attack against Volokotin?
Aug-03-06  jhoro: <21...Rd8 is very sharp.> Pelletier saw the deadly 22.Red1 . game over for Volokitin
Aug-03-06  charms: 22. ♖ed1 ♖xd1 23.♖xd1 ♖xa2?! 24. ♕h6 ♖xg2+ 25. ♔xg2 ♗b7+ 26. ♔f1 ♗a6+ looks drawish, impo.
Aug-03-06  jhoro: <charms> in your line the move is 24.Qe5 instead
Aug-03-06  charms: jhoro, not Qe5, but 24.Qd5! is strong indeed. Maybe Black can play 22.- Qc8.
Aug-03-06  suenteus po 147: Volokitin is desperately burning all his time to find a drawing resource in the position.
Aug-03-06  aragorn69: <Aug-03-06 jhoro: <charms> in your line the move is 24.Qe5 instead> Even the funny 24.e4 wins!!

  Peligroso Patzer: <suenteus po 147: Volokitin is desperately burning all his time to find a drawing resource in the position.>

Indeed. He's now down to around 40 seconds per move for the next 19 moves.

Aug-03-06  aragorn69: And now let's hope, Pelletier finds the pretty 23.Qe5!! Rxg2+ 24.Kf1 Qb8 25.Bxf7+!!
Aug-03-06  charms: 23. Qe5 is a beautiful finishing blow.
Aug-03-06  jhoro: <not Qe5, but 24.Qd5!> Qd5 is not even close. 25.Qd5 Rxg2+ 26.Qxg2 (26.Kxg2 Bb7 pins the white Queen)
