  whiteshark: I wouldn't dream of posting sth. like that.

Go Economists, ftw!

Apr-05-10  notyetagm: <Sularus: GO GRISCHUK !!>

Two losses for Grischuk in three games. :-(

Russian Team Championships (2010)/Alexander Grischuk

Apr-05-10  Don Cossacks: The Russian Wooden Hadron Collider is for real!!!
Apr-05-10  percyblakeney: Just like Grischuk Ivanchuk isn't having a good event, apart from the loss against Pono he has all draws against opponents with a considerably lower rating.
Apr-05-10  percyblakeney: Potkin gave Caruana a Monday puzzle with 30. Re1:

Potkin resigned after Qc1+ (Qxc1 Nb3#).

Apr-05-10  kurtrichards: <Potkin-Caruana> 30. Re1?? and an easy win for Caruana with 30...Qc1+ mating. Maybe 30. Rb4 would hold.
Apr-05-10  wolfmaster: Where is Nakamura?
Apr-05-10  ajile: <wolfmaster: Where is Nakamura?>

Seriously. I thought anyone could play here. In fact how come I wasn't invited?

Apr-05-10  redwhitechess: Actually how many team the elites get invited? for example Ivanchuck seems everywhere (in team playing).
Apr-06-10  larsen959: Forza (GO) Caruana!! ;-)
Apr-06-10  kurtrichards: <Forza (GO) Caruana!! ;-)> Double thumbs up.

  HeMateMe: A comment from Natalie Pogonina:

"...in the men's section there are sixteen 2700+ players, that's about 50 percent of all grandmasters of that caliber in the world. Their games are something to be considered."

That does put things in perspective. Its a great event.

Apr-07-10  Harvestman: Movsesian seems to be playing a Leningrad Dutch sort of set-up, with a tempo extra as white. Interesting choice.

By the way, is it just me, or are there fewer Sicilian openings being played at the top level these days?

Apr-07-10  Sularus: ^^

I think it is also because at the highest levels, 1. d4 is played more often nowadays. I am not sure about this though. It is my own hunch.

  Troller: Earlier, Nepom won yet another game, this time as Black against Kovchan. He has been playing on a very consistent high level lately and should break the 2700 barrier pretty soon if he keeps it up.
Apr-08-10  e4ia: This is a tremendous rich fighting game still in process at this post, about 12:30PM EDT; be sure to go over it!

Ponomariov vs Khenkin only 2597

typical relay delays and sponsor site "down" at this post;
