|May-24-07|| ||chessmoron: Vassily Ivanchuk really need this and hopefully he gained a bit of points here. My God, he is dropping points crazy.|
|May-24-07|| ||chessmoron: 72% Drawfest.|
|May-24-07|| ||Knight13: Cool nice to see my favorite player FINALLY winning a freakin' tournament!|
|May-24-07|| ||Dr.Lecter: <chessmoron> But Ivanchuk is getting a bit old, like Short is, to be playing with the real top guys, like Kramnik, Topalov, or Anand. I'm pretty sure he can win a bit weaker tourneys easily, though. I'd like to see Ivanchuk winning more super-tournaments, cause I'm fond of him, too.|
|May-24-07|| ||keypusher: <Dr.Lecter: <chessmoron> But Ivanchuk is getting a bit old, like Short is, to be playing with the real top guys, like Kramnik, Topalov, or Anand.> Ivanchuk is about six months older than Anand.|
|May-24-07|| ||Dr.Lecter: Oh, really? I thought he was way older than that. Never mind, than. Take out Anand from my list.|
|May-25-07|| ||Chess Classics: Jeez, no wonder Ivanchuk is winning this tournament. I mean, look at the competition. I haven't even heard of any of the others except for Kamil Miton.|
|May-25-07|| ||BIDMONFA: 42nd Capablanca Memorial (2007)|
Round 6, leader Vassily Ivanchuk 5 points
|May-25-07|| ||JointheArmy: <chessmoron> How many points is Ivanchuk going to lose next list? Also Bruzon needs this not Ivanchuk, he's down to 2620 already.|
|May-25-07|| ||Knight13: I don't thinK Ivanchuk's gonna lose ANY points in this tournament unless he gets blown off by a 2500 or something.|
|May-25-07|| ||keypusher: <Dr. Lecter> <Oh, really? I thought he was way older than that. Never mind, than. Take out Anand from my list.>|
Does this mean Anand will be too old to play against Kramnik and Topalov starting six months from now?
|May-25-07|| ||ganso: It's surprising that Bruzon is at the bottom. He and Dominguez are strong, about 2660, tops among the Cuban players.|
|May-25-07|| ||Mameluk: Dominguez is much better last year or two.|
|May-25-07|| ||percyblakeney: Bruzon has a bad sequence in the Capablanca Memorial after +0 -2 =8 last year and +0 -2 =4 at the moment in this edition.|
|May-26-07|| ||BIDMONFA: 42nd Capablanca Memorial (2007)|
Round 7, leader Vassily Ivanchuk 5'5 points
|May-26-07|| ||savagerules: What a weak tournament to honor Capablanca, they should call it the Ricky Ricardo Memorial Tournament instead.|
|May-26-07|| ||technical draw: "You have some splaining to do Lucy, uh, savagerules"...|
|May-26-07|| ||IMDONE4: Ivanchuk's competition in this tournament wasn't weak; Most players were rated in the mid to high 2600s. Anyways, congrats Ivanchuk on winning the tourney.|
|May-26-07|| ||Caissanist: I believe that the tournament still has two rounds to go.|
|May-26-07|| ||ganso: Looks like Dominguez and Ivanchuk played a 15 move draw in round 6 or so. Dominguez earlier played an even shorter draw with Bruzon. No comprendo, given Dominguez's mediocre results in tournament. I guess he's given up and is happy with a +1 (but he shouldn't be!).|
|May-26-07|| ||Dr.Lecter: <keypusher> OMG! You're driving me crazy. OK. Let me clarify. I think Anand is a real good player and has a chance in winning any tourney, just as much as Topa or Vlad. BUT, I think he might be becoming too old to participate in big tournaments in 2-3 years. Ivanchuk, an exception, because he seems to have nervous problems or something, and maybe, just maybe, can't concentrate as much as other players. Possible explanation: Age. |
Hope I was clear this time around
|May-27-07|| ||BIDMONFA: 42nd Capablanca Memorial (2007)|
Round 8, champion Vassily Ivanchuk 6'5 points
|May-27-07|| ||percyblakeney: After Ivanchuk's win in round 8 he has won the tournament with one round to go and will at the moment gain around a dozen points.|
|May-27-07|| ||Mameluk: Ivanchuk gains some points from here, bundesliga and russian liga. What can be his next rating? My experienced guess is around 2755, which may not be enough for top 5 but pretty close to No. 2.|
|May-27-07|| ||Wolfgang01: What's more interesting to me: Why does Vassily Ivanchuk not play with the candidates tournament? There are at last two to four players obviously with a lower rating than his. Vassily will also have his reasons.|
