|Oct-09-07|| ||borkoto: Roiz is still hangin in there - amazing staff|
|Oct-09-07|| ||Mameluk: Radjabov´s KID seems impregnable.|
|Oct-09-07|| ||Mameluk: Ivanchuk sacrificed a piece and meanwhile Moro completely messed his position and should be happy for a draw.|
|Oct-09-07|| ||vlado23: <Mameluk> isn't Moro about to win?|
|Oct-09-07|| ||Mameluk: The problem is Roiz must win against Cheparinov to make it 3-3. So he will probably lose.|
|Oct-09-07|| ||borkoto: The best game so far in the tournament...Cheparinov vs Roiz - good attacking play - no draw rule|
|Oct-09-07|| ||SickedChess: Moro is trying hard to win this|
|Oct-09-07|| ||Mameluk: Now Van Wely erred with 36...Bf5 instead of simple Qxf7 and does not have many pawns right now. We´ll see if Moro can win this, he was completely winning before however.|
|Oct-09-07|| ||borkoto: Cheparinov has taken bigger scalps than \Roiz's - but Roiz is no lesser player -gootta give it to him|
|Oct-09-07|| ||borkoto: sadly Roiz is coming to a bitter end 0 - so much for his effort|
|Oct-09-07|| ||Mameluk: Chucky overpressed. It is not over yet, but quite bad.|
|Oct-09-07|| ||VishyFan: <chessmoron: Unbelievable, Xu Yuhua drew against the unstoppable Koneru Humpy which she is nearly 100 points below the Indian's ELO.> It was a GM draw....., Humpy's team has already won the championship and Humpy has won the individual Top board prize and she might have wanted to close this successful tournament safely...|
Humpy is gaining 10 ELO from this tournament.....
|Oct-09-07|| ||Mameluk: Ivanchuk lost for a team, because they were losing. So No. 1 not yet, especially when Anand seems winning. Moro seems definitely like a draw.|
|Oct-09-07|| ||slomarko: what the hell has Ivanchuk done? what was that Ne5?????|
|Oct-09-07|| ||chessmoron: Anand is 2800 flat after a 1 pt lost.
Ivanchuk will lose 3.2 ELO points. 2784
|Oct-09-07|| ||edwitten: the only explanation is that ivanchuk had to force matters for team reasons,because his play was pretty absurd.|
|Oct-09-07|| ||slomarko: indeed his play sucked|
|Oct-09-07|| ||notyetagm: <edwitten: the only explanation is that ivanchuk had to force matters for team reasons,because his play was pretty absurd.>|
Yes, I didn't understand that knight sacrifice by Radjabov. It didn't quite look sound but like you said maybe his team needed the win.
|Oct-09-07|| ||vlado23: the final position in Rublevsky vs. Tiviakov today is almost identical to Anand vs Grischuk, 2007 from Mexico|
|Oct-10-07|| ||CHESSMANIAC05: please stop hating on ivanchuk. nobody wins every game ya know.|
|Oct-10-07|| ||King mega: The former world champion petrosyan? and Szabo who lived in the early 20th century?!|
|Oct-10-07|| ||VishyFan: <chessmoron: Anand is 2800 flat after a 1 pt lost.> Anand is set to lose 2 ELO, so he is 2799 effectively....., I don't know if he is playing anywhere before Corus 2008...... I guess he will be stuck at 2799 for the Jan 2008 List....|
|Oct-10-07|| ||Aspirador: Did anybody check Ivanchuk-Radja. Must be an incorrect score. 38.Nxe5?? dxe5?? (Bxe5!) is certainly false.|
|Oct-10-07|| ||Aspirador: It was probably 38.Nxc5 dxc5. Makes more sense.|
|Oct-15-07|| ||notyetagm: <VishyFan: <chessmoron: Anand is 2800 flat after a 1 pt lost.> Anand is set to lose 2 ELO, so he is 2799 effectively....., I don't know if he is playing anywhere before Corus 2008...... I guess he will be stuck at 2799 for the Jan 2008 List....>|
<VishyFan> Any idea what Mamedyarov's effective rating is right now after this ECC performance and his 2/2 start at Essent?
