Kibitzer's Corner
Mar-13-08  chessmoron: Congrats to Wang Hao and his great win against Caruana.

Congrats Hannes Stefansson, and Wang Yue

Mar-13-08  dumbgai: A great recovery by Wang Yue, who lost in the first round to a 2300 FM.
Mar-13-08  pawnofdoom: Wang Yue will lose a few points, but Wang Hao is just getting closer and closer to 2700
Mar-13-08  chessmoron: Actually Wang Yue will gain a tiny 2.1 points since he score 6 wins.
Mar-13-08  playerXchess: I don't think rating points will be such a big deal for him. He's probably about 8 points down from January.

He can forget this one, and start focusing on the 2-year long Grand Prix Series - which really matters.
