tomashevsky - alekseev

couldn't tomashevsky just force a winning king-pawn endgame with Re6+? i just played a quick line against fritz and won it easily.

Apr-09-09  PhilFeeley: Caruana wins another one! He's ahead of Ivanchuk in rp, I think.
Apr-09-09  hand banana: my bad, i didn't let it "think" enough. it was a draw after all.
Apr-09-09  hand banana: <Caruana wins another one! He's ahead of Ivanchuk in rp, I think.> ??

Rating performance: 2631

Rating performance: 2811

and that was all before today's round, in which caruana won against 2724 player, and ivanchuk drew 2623.

1.Re6+ Rxe6+ 2.fxe6 Kxe6 3.g5 and how does Fritz defend?

Apr-09-09  hand banana: <and how does Fritz defend?> b4, with c3 next, and after Kxc3, Kf5 holds the draw
Apr-09-09  virginmind: caruana the rising star
Apr-09-09  chessmoron: Xu Yuhua v Zhao Xue

What a game! A 5-move draw! Incredible.

Apr-09-09  Udit Narayan: <chessmoron> Fischer was right about the collusion at Curacao after all.
Apr-09-09  DCP23: <chessmoron: Xu Yuhua v Zhao Xue

What a game! A 5-move draw! Incredible.>

A nice game no doubt. But I don't blame them.

Xu,Yuhua - Zhao,Xue
Russian Team Championship Women Dagomys/Sochi (7), 09.04.2009

1.e4 e5 2.Nf3 Nc6 3.Bb5 a6 4.Ba4 Nf6 5.0-0 Be7 1/2

Now what's really funny about that game is that Playchess software identifies the opening as "C84: Closed Ruy Lopez: Unusual White 6th move".

Unusual 6th move indeed.

Apr-09-09  DCP23: Now while the Chinese gals were contemplating unusual 6th moves, Tatiana Kosintseva wins YET ANOTHER game, and is now on +5 (!) with no losses and a perfomance of 2701, which for a women-only event is quite incredible.
Apr-09-09  returnoftheking: Besides Caruana (no draws yet!!) Volokitin is doing quite well at this event. Last round he won again, be it from a somewhat weaker player.
Apr-10-09  virginmind: <DCP23> yes, bravo kosintzeva! also very nice face.
Apr-10-09  virginmind: <returnoftheking> incidently volokitin gets to play now with shirov, who is +5.00...
Apr-10-09  Andrijadj: How To Bomb Berlin Properly(Zhukov's Missed Opportunities) by Alexey Shirov...
Apr-10-09  PhilFeeley: It looks like Ivanchuk drew every game. Anybody know what happened to Caruana this round? Did he play?
Apr-10-09  Eyal: A Nice winning combination by Shirov over Volokitin:

click for larger view

(position after 41...Kb6)

42.Bc3 c4? (not noticing the threat, but it's probably lost for Black anyhow) 43.Rh8! Rxg7 44.Rb8+ Kc7 (or 44...Ka6 45.Rd1 and mate) 45.Rdd8 (threatening Ba5#) Be3 46.Bb4 1-0 (there's no good defense against Bd6# - 46...c5 47.Ba5+ Kc6 48.Rd6#).

Apr-10-09  noctiferus: Anyway, in their team, Grachev (who played today on 4th board), got a better ELo performance than Fabiano, 8 points higher.
Apr-10-09  noctiferus: <PhilFeeley>
he didn't play today. Saving his Elo performance?
Apr-10-09  Strongest Force: Is there anyone who keeps up with Fabiano Caruana's live rating that can tell me what his rating is after this event.
Apr-10-09  hand banana: <Grachev (who played today on 4th board), got a better ELo performance than Fabiano>

grachev got 2793
caruana has 2856
a bit better.

Apr-11-09  noctiferus: eventually I found the final standing table

but there are disagreements among the performance data reported in the same site.

Apr-11-09  praddy06: <Strongest Force>

Caruana's live Ratings
Russian Premier League - +18
Austrian Bundesliga - +7.4
German Schach-Bundesliga - -3.9

Current Rating - 2649
Live Ratings - 2670.5
