Kibitzer's Corner
Dec-12-13  Marmot PFL: Naka-Gelfand looks like a draw in a messy game where both probably missed wins.
Dec-12-13  SirRuthless: That was a fun game. Perhaps a little too much fun for both players.
Dec-13-13  Octavia: Its great how cg organised the groups - unfortunately I've got a fav in each group,it'd be nice if 3 of them make it into the final.

Gelfand had a quick = with Nakamura to relax before the next game.

Dec-13-13  Octavia: Nigel did 4 brill tactics against Sutovsky just now
Dec-15-13  fref: Interestingly, the two finalist came from the same group, which I had picked as the "Group of Death"
