http://www.bidmonfa.com/informacio_...;

Wow, tremendous comeback by Adly. Great clutch wins down the stretch, reminiscent of Dr. Lasker.

He deserves to become the new World Junior Champion, the first from Africa I do believe that would make him.

Oct-15-07  pawnofdoom: Adly is great at this. After losing his first game, he goes off to win 6 or 7 games in a row. After suffering another loss, he falls behind, gets a few draws, and is now back in first place! What a comeback!

Meanwhile, I hope Wang Hao will suddenly decide to stop drawing his games and win. I really want a Chinese player to win this championship for once, and all Wang Hao has to do is win his next game, and that Adly and Popov don't. Unfortunately, Wang Hao has a game as black against 2nd seed Stellwagen, and it won't be an easy game.

Nah, I don't think Wang Hao will win it now. Probably either Adly or Popov will win their White game and that's all for Wang Hao's chances.

Besides, the next best thing to a Chinese winning the World Junior Championship is an African (Egypt) winning it. :-)

Go Adly!

Oct-15-07  Jim Bartle: Adly vs. Leko would be interesting. I guy who never draws against a guy who seems to draw all the time.
Oct-16-07  Atkins: <Jim Bartle: Adly vs. Leko would be interesting. I guy who never draws against a guy who seems to draw all the time.> Mightbe interesting. Adly will learn how to draw... (I'm jocking) In fact I'm happy to see Adly fights for the title. Chess is really becoming international.

  superuser171: Congrats For Ahmed n our Egypt...Great performance & fighting spiriy by him
Oct-16-07  Marvol: <Jim Bartle: Adly vs. Leko would be interesting. I guy who never draws against a guy who seems to draw all the time.>

In the last WCCship, Leko drew 10 of his games, as did Anand, Kramnik and Gelfand, while Svidler even drew 11.

In the candidates' matches he beat Gurevich +3 =1 and then Bareev +2 =3.

In Dortmund Leko drew 6 of his 7 games, as did Alekseev, Anand (again), and Carlsen.

In Morelia-Linares, he drew 10 of his 14 games, as many as Topalov (!), two <less> than Svidler (him again) and Aronian (!), and only one less than Anand (him again) and Ivanchuk.

In the Amber blindfold section he drew 6 of 11, two less than Carlsen, one less than Svidler and Ivanchuk and as many as Gelfand; in the rapid section he drew only five games finishing third, drawing equal or less games than <everyone> except the bottom-three finishers Vallejo, Radjabov and van Wely.

And he won the ACP rapid with overall stats of +6 =6, -1.

Hardly stats that would qualify him for being very drawish compared to his peers.

Congratulations to the new World Junior Champion Adly! :-)

Oct-16-07  notyetagm: Wow, the new World Junior Champion Adly did not play a single(!) draw in the 13-round tournament: +10 -3 <=0>.

  Chnebelgrind: Adly is the first World Junior Champion of the African continent http://encyclopedia.thefreedictiona... Congratulations!
Oct-16-07  ahmadov: <notyetagm: Wow, the new World Junior Champion Adly did not play a single(!) draw in the 13-round tournament: +10 -3 <=0>.> So, chess is not going to be boring in the future as some people assume... :)
Oct-16-07  Riverbeast: Congratulations to Adly he played some fantastic chess. My favorite is his game against Melkumyan - but many of his wins in this tournament were simply brilliant
Oct-16-07  dumbgai: Everyone, check out the game Mongontuul-Soumya from the final round. Truly incredible endgame (though filled with time-inducted blunders)!
Oct-16-07  Jim Bartle: "Hardly stats that would qualify him (Leko) for being very drawish compared to his peers."

My apologies. I had the impression Leko was the drawmaster among the elite. Who would be a better example—Ulf Andersson?

Oct-16-07  Marvol: <Jim Bartle: My apologies. I had the impression Leko was the drawmaster among the elite. Who would be a better example—Ulf Andersson?>

Ulf is THE drawmaster alright, but hardly elite. Svidler seems to be the elite player with the highest % of draws lately (as you can already feel from the stats I gave, where he outdrew Leko thrice).

Leko used to draw more but has spiced up his game a bit the last few years.

Oct-16-07  capablancakarpov: Congratulations Adly, this win is very important for the development of chess in Africa!
Oct-17-07  Pinoychess: http://pinoychess.informe.com/forum...
Oct-17-07  notyetagm: Simply amazing that Adly did not play a single(!) draw, going +10 -3 <=0>.

World Junior Championship (2007)/Ahmed Adly

Oct-17-07  joebuck: <frogbert:

the real shocker, however, was the winner, which indeed happened to be adly, who recovered brilliantly after his two defeats. for a 2494 to perform nearly at 2700, winning 32 rating points along the way, was something i didn't expect at all.>

Cut and paste from the Negi forum.

  Joshka: <Riverbeast> <(Nakamura excepted)> No he is not, he was born in Japan, not a native American. Think there is only ONE native American (North) under 40 in the USA. He just received his GM norm, his name escapes me.
