Sep-25-09  percyblakeney: Maybe Kasparov did learn something from those training sessions after all...

Sep-25-09  A Karpov Fan: Some good games here. I surely wish i could play blitz so well -lol-
Sep-25-09  returnoftheking: <Magnus Carlsen beat Anatoli Karpov 4 to 0, with 1 draw>

Carlsen is not a particular good blitz player and imo this just shows how weak Karpov has become compared to the real elite. Cracks like Grischuk, Morozevich, Karjakin would probably toast all three of them in blitz without too much effort.

Sep-25-09  zatara: <..according to Mig he meant that the quality was terrible..>

We r talking about blitz games here..I think the quality was <at least> as Kasparov described it..decent..

Sep-25-09  DEEPERGRAY: Kasparov one lost in blitz was a won game. Kasparov was off but not that off. At least by result unfornately I haven't reviewed the blitz games - lost my internet connection on my pc (using blackberry right now at work) due to my landlord stupidity

  HeMateMe: Did they have any add on time increment in this, or was it just a straight 5 minute time control?

I was thinking, in game 2, if there was a time increment, Kasparov should have won more easily with a two pawn advantage, 2 connected passed pawns. It looked like he was making the kind of quick, scatter moves you make in blitz when there is a fixed time and you can't quite find the threadk or, when you have the time advantage, play ANY safe move to run out the clock.

Sep-25-09  returnoftheking: After a thorough study of this match I conclude that the draw in 17 was the best game..
Sep-26-09  Kaspablanca: The joke match finally is over, thank God.

  mahmoudkubba: Well as I am trying to see the games more deeply, I was thinking of how many times the person(s)/team(s) in front of the player knows that he/she/they has/have/had to loose the game/match/tournament/dest/..etc. In that they / us were right in calling the other player Al-Raseel, i.e. the answering player. (nearly translation by me, yet it has many other words to be said). In that manner there is/are at least another two players oponents to the real game that is if they were playing chess to answewr you in real blitzes not at all in mentioning trainings, theories ...etc. Still wonder what was all this abt? really wants to know that at least at the utmost in the heavens 2 days later than its official starting HaHaHa. That is later than the last day of the last creature on the laboratory earthy galaxy HaHaHa
Sep-26-09  SetNoEscapeOn: <Kaspablanca>

The only joke was the way you kept coming on here, going on and on like a silly little idiot about how unimportant the match was... If your aim was to earn your way onto a few ignore lists, I'm sure you succeeded.

  mahmoudkubba: Any how sometimes even a whole tournament is of a fact having the direction of it a horizontal line or an equational mathematical line ...etc between the players. That is the two players in a single match r playing for a reason on a horizontally basis on the board, so in that such case whoever wins is/r not important and sometimes they had to play in their highest powers for such a reason(s). Still tryiong to figure out the main reason(s) of the meeting especially that I have a feeling it was not the money at all. Even with little money r around for the such meeting. Like the one in 1993 bet. Spassky and Ficher still not knowing excatly why apart from the other five famous questions: (those 6 r Why, where, which, when, who, what not on a special tabulation). So any body can help me even on this site where the reasons r really so hidden but using the secret codes of chess game the lovely game of ever.
Premium Chessgames Member
  mahmoudkubba: Also the other important fact arising is/r that the chess board and the pieces might be used in and for different matters. Like my discovery and project and dissertation of the discovery game. Any idea please ...
Sep-26-09  zarg: <returnoftheking: Carlsen is not a particular good blitz player>

ROFL, even the Carlsen bashers, should know he is rather good in BLITZ. Take a poll among the elite, and ask how they they would fancy facing Carlsen in a blitz play-off.

<Cracks like Grischuk, Morozevich, Karjakin would probably toast all three of them in blitz without too much effort.>

Nonsense, at e.g. Tal Memorial Blitz 2008, where only Anand, Aronian and Topalov of the big guns was missing, Carlsen was well ahead of your guys:

Tal Memorial Blitz (2008)

and Karpov was ahead of Moro.

Sep-26-09  redsoxnation: On a personal note is heartwarming to know that although Kasparov and Karpov were utterly different in personalities and personal philosophies all during their fierce chess rivalry, when Kasparov was arrested by the Putin-gang in Russia while campaigning for democracy, one of the few people who came to visit him in prison was Karpov.
Sep-26-09  Kaspablanca: Karpov only had 1 win, lost a game on time. Seriously, what was the big deal on this match?. This was a joke match and i dont care what Setnoescape on think.
Sep-27-09  AnalyzeThis: Well, it's just more proof of the superiority of Bobby Fischer. He didn't push a pawn for 20 years, and came back and played at 2630 level. Karpov these days is struggling to maintain 2600 strength.

  kingfu: Only ONE question: How much money were K and K paid to play? Anybody? Anybody?
