Jul-23-13  Fish55: After their draw, Wang Yue remains at +4, Shulman at -4.
Jul-24-13  Caissanist: Nice result from Tatev Abrahamyan, whoever she is, scoring 3.5-1.5 against a Chinese women's team rated 100-200 points higher than she is. The rest of the American women got massacred, of course.
Jul-24-13  dumbgai: Tatev is from the LA area and was quite active in the local tournaments there before getting more international invites. She's a streaky player, capable of beating higher rated opponents but also susceptible to sub-par play.

Jul-24-13  notyetagm: Lenderman vs Wang Yue, 2013

44 ... ?

44 ... ♗h3-g2!! 0-1 <attack defender: b1-sq>

<fisayo123: 44...Bg2!! What an unbelievable move to end a complex struggle. Wang Yue is starting to regain that form that made him a top ten player a couple of years ago.>

YES!

Go China!

Jul-24-13  dumbgai: <notyetagm> The funny thing is that Wang Yue could have played Bg2 on the previous move, or even the move before that, with the same effect. When you can't get escape from the same winning tactic with two moves to spare, it's fair to say that your position was hopeless.

Still beautiful, just slightly delayed beauty. :-)

Jul-25-13  Mudphudder: On the same note though, Lendreman surely didn't see Bg2 earlier either...otherwise he would've taken counter measures.

Yes, Wang Yue's brilliant 44 ... ♗h3-g2!! is a perfect example of the <REMOVAL OF THE GUARD> tactic.

Or, as NM Dan Heisman calls it, <THE UNDERRATED REMOVAL OF THE GUARD>: if your defender can be taken or attacked then it is not a defender but rather a <TARGET>!

GM Baburin in Chess Today CT-204(4641):

<In this round Chinese men showed poor endgame technique.>

46 ... ♕c6x♕f3? (Baburin)

<It's a strange decision for a 2700+ player - the rook endgame is drawn (at least theoretically), while with queen's on the board White's defensive task would be pretty difficult.>

Jul-26-13  notyetagm: China-USA Chess Summit (2013)

USA was *demolished* today in the rapids.

I think the women went like <+1 -12 =2>. And the men didn't do much better.

EGADS!

Jul-27-13  dumbgai: According to the CG main page:

<China crushed, winning the classical 31-19 and the rapid 70.5-29.5.>

That is a total blowout, a much wider victory margin for the Chinese team than would be expected from their rating advantage.

  Albums Dummyflap: not so surprising given that a few of the US players normally play classical chess exclusively.

  HeMateMe: In all fairness, it wasn't our varsity squad out there. Top women Krush and Zantonski weren't there. No Gata Kamsky or Nakamura.

That said, it was good experience for Shankland and Lenderman, they got their feet wet

Jul-30-13  geeker: After such an overwhelming rout, I have to conclude we've seen the last such "Summit" event.
Jul-30-13  AsosLight: Useful for USA to get used to the fact of being inferior to China. Makes for a softer landing.
Chess events is a good start.
Jul-30-13  notyetagm: <AsosLight: Useful for USA to get used to the fact of being inferior to China. Makes for a softer landing.>

Yes, we should just accept our new role as servants to our Chinese overlords. That way our feelings will not get hurt as much.

:-)

Jul-30-13  Catholic Bishop: <geeker: After such an overwhelming rout, I have to conclude we've seen the last such "Summit" event.> C'mon, this is only chess. They can still play Go or Xiangqi next time, or even Dota
Jul-30-13  notyetagm: <Catholic Bishop: ... C'mon, this is only chess. They can still play Go or Xiangqi next time, or even Dota>

No doubt we would lose a Go match 100-0.

  Natalia Pogonina: Matches against China are never easy.

<In all fairness, it wasn't our varsity squad out there. Top women Krush and Zantonski weren't there. No Gata Kamsky or Nakamura.>

In all fairness, China had their B or even C-teams playing. No Wang Hao, Ding Liren, Li Chao, Bu Xiangzhi, Ni Hua, Yu Yanggyi...

Hou Yifan, Zhao Xue et al. were absent as well.

Aug-06-13  YouRang: Oops - add another for the U.S. Men -- the U.S. won 8 games:

Xiu Deshun vs Lenderman, 2013

Aug-17-13  visayanbraindoctor: I would like to see a Scheveningen type match-up between China and India with Anand participating.
Aug-26-13  hellopolgar: Home page description: "China crushed, winning the classical 31-19 and the rapid 70.5-29.5." is grammatically correct, but I think crush is <usually> used as a transitive verb. So it makes sense to say <China dominated>, or if you must use crush, <China crushed the USA>.
