|Jul-03-11|| ||DarthStapler: I played in the World Open once|
|Jul-03-11|| ||HeMateMe: Does the winner get to ring the bell?|
|Jul-04-11|| ||parmetd: Currently Adams is leading with 6/7 followed by Van Wely, Kamsky, Harikrishna and Ehlvest.|
forced pairing should be Harikrishna-Adams
Either Van Wely or Kamsky will play Ehlvest. colors depending etc.
If you haven't seen Kamsky had a wonderful win over Lenderman in round7. What a sexy Queen endgame 71... Kc1!! slam.
|Jul-04-11|| ||parmetd: another gorgeous game is Matan's win over IM Mac Molner that followed Keres-Kotov 1950 until about move 16 where Kotov played gxh4? and Molner played Qe8|
|Jul-04-11|| ||LIFE Master AJ: http://chesstournamentservices.com/...|
|Jul-04-11|| ||LIFE Master AJ: After Round 7, Loek Van Wely leads with 5.5, second is Michael Adams with 5.0.|
|Jul-04-11|| ||LIFE Master AJ: Sorry - that was AFTER Round # 06, the results for R7 have not been posted on the W.O. website.|
|Jul-04-11|| ||parmetd: Yes I posted the standings for you AJ... read my post.
Van Wely 5.5/7
|Jul-04-11|| ||parmetd: Gata & Adams lead with 6.5/8
Harikrishna, Gareyev, Smirin, Kacheishvili, Robson trails with 6/8
Van Wely, Ehlvest and others with 5.5/8
|Jul-04-11|| ||parmetd: Gata has already played Adams and Kacheishvili
Adams has already played Harikrishna
So pairings should be
(colors may change just did this on basic td rules and the crosstable).
|Jul-04-11|| ||Strongest Force: Its kind of kool to have Adams playing.|
|Jul-04-11|| ||parmetd: Adams drew so now if Kamsky wins he is the sole World Open 2011 winner. If Kamsky draws against Smirin then there Adams & Kamsky share first with up to 2 more people.|
|Jul-04-11|| ||parmetd: Kamsky drew so Kamsky & Adams are the winners! Maybe 2 people can join them with wins.|
|Jul-04-11|| ||dx9293: Van Wely (5.5) defeated Kacheishvili (6), so the only people who can tie Kamsky and Adams now are Robson or Harikrishna, and they are playing each other. Otherwise, it will just be the two 2700s.|
|Jul-05-11|| ||tamar: Kamsky wins! He just won the armageddon game v Adams|
|Jul-05-11|| ||znsprdx: so where is the game?|
|Jul-05-11|| ||Sneaky: Kamsky vs Adams, 2011|
|Jul-05-11|| ||shogirules: E Most vs Kudrin, 2011 should be deleted, the game is posted twice and the result is wrong in this one. The correct score (I think!!) is E Most vs Kudrin, 2011|
|Jul-07-11|| ||kingfu: What in The Good Christ is an Armageddon game?
The pipe to left temple gambit?
The Drive by Gruenfeld?
|Jul-07-11|| ||kingfu: Why not play a Real Tie Break Match? It could be a few games. Why not MANY games? Let's Play Chess.|
Then we could go out for PHILLY CHEESE STEAK sandwiches.
Then we could go see where BENJAMIN FRANKLIN lived and wrote and helped to invent Life , Liberty and The Pursuit of Happiness.
Then we could go watch The Phillies play baseball.
|Jul-09-11|| ||Richard Taylor: Puchen Wang of NZ did well for a first attempt.|
|Jul-10-11|| ||Benzol: Yes <Richard>, he did well finishing in 16th place and ahead of two GMs.|
|Jul-11-11|| ||mahmoudkubba: From the saying from ChG.Com: Philadelphia, USA
Jun 28-Jul 4
Gata Kamsky and Michael Adams tied for first with 7/9 points, and Kamsky claimed the 2011 World Open Champion title by winning an Armageddon game... which game is that game???
|Jul-11-11|| ||shivasuri4: <mahmoudkubka>,click on Kamsky's name on top to see his games.In the 10 game list,game no.8 is the Armageddon game.|
|Jul-11-11|| ||laskersteinitz: I find it strange that Chessbase hasn't posted an article on this edition of the World Open. Honest oversight, or something else...?|
