Dec-08-06  percyblakeney: So Topalov leads 3-1 with two games to go.
Dec-08-06  CoryLetain: <Doktorn> To be honest I didn't see the Qh2 move untill I gave it good look. I was doing the same thing. Looking at a bunch of moves on the queenside.
Dec-08-06  TurkChess: Topalov is a much more better player. This is a normal result. Topalov is the strongest active chess player.
Dec-08-06  princeofdragons: <TurkChess> WRONG! Topalov is NOT the strongest active chess player despite his rating. Anand is.

  technical draw: Let's find a middle ground. Let's just say I am the strongest active player. I can bench press 285 lbs.
Dec-08-06  CoryLetain: Topalov is a really good chess player. So is Anand. I'm not sure who is better. There both entertaining as well.
Dec-08-06  Aspirador: I think that simple blindfolding is not enough to prevent cheating in the modern computer ages. The players should be blindfolded, earfolded and in bondage. I ask for a Bondage Chess World Duel!
Dec-08-06  Agent Bouncy: Why is Chessbase promoting this stupid blindfold gimmick publicity event, while completely ignoring the recent real grandmaster chess competition in Cuba won by Ivanchuk??

  BishopofBlunder: <technical draw: Let's find a middle ground. Let's just say I am the strongest active player. I can bench press 285 lbs.> But I can bench press 286.
Dec-08-06  14 Dog Knight: Wrong! I am the strongest player; I haven't taken a bath in six days.
Dec-08-06  14 Dog Knight: I think chessbase is promoting this over Ivanchuk's tnmt because it draws more interest and gets more needed publicity in the general population. And the participants are more interesting.
Dec-08-06  14 Dog Knight: If they ever do have a bondage world chess match, I suggest one between me and Shakira...
Premium Chessgames Member
  BishopofBlunder: I could beat Shakira with one hand tied behind...oh never mind...
Premium Chessgames Member
  technical draw: Anyone remember Haystack Calhoun?
Dec-08-06  Confuse: bondage world chess match? now i've heard everything.
Premium Chessgames Member
  BishopofBlunder: It would sure make it more difficult for Kramnik to go to the bathroom. In fact, I don't think I want to be a player's second for that type of match...
Dec-08-06  Nightranger: < 14 Dog Knight: If they ever do have a bondage world chess match, I suggest one between me and Shakira... >

Good choice. Not sure this is a spectator sport though. :)

Dec-08-06  Agent Bouncy: I posted my previous comment several hours ago, and I see that Chessbase has just created a site for the Cuba tournament won by Ivanchuk. Thanks! Even though the event ended more than a week ago, I'm glad to see the games.
Dec-09-06  notyetagm: <princeofdragons: <TurkChess> WRONG! Topalov is NOT the strongest active chess player despite his rating. Anand is.>

We'll settle this dispute next month at Corus.

Dec-09-06  code13: Anybody actually watching the games? They seem to have started using thinking time quite early. Out of book or just positions these players rarely play?
Dec-09-06  percyblakeney: Draw in game 5, Topalov 3.5-1,5 up before the final game.
Premium Chessgames Member
  thegoodanarchist: I'd pay to see Kosteniuk play in one of those matches <Aspirador> was talking about.
Dec-09-06  Doktorn: And finally Polgar got a win. Final score 3.5-2.5 in Topalovs favor.
Premium Chessgames Member We finally got to uploading the game scores for this match. Sorry about the delay.
Sep-22-13  DrAttitude: Two of the most aggressive players of the 2000's and 2010's. Six Games. Six Sicilian. Yes!
