Dec-07-14  Strongest Force: Is there another rd?
Dec-07-14  Strongest Force: Who will he get in rd 10?
Dec-07-14  SimonWebbsTiger: Guess he'll get Naroditsky or Lendermen. All US clash in rd. 10
Dec-07-14  SirRuthless: Nakamura crushes Fabiano with black. If he doesn't choke in the last round vs Anand,he is uncatchable.

  chancho: <Sir Ruthless> Anand?

Vishy bends over and lowers his trousers whenever he sees Naka.

Dec-07-14  SirRuthless: I don't know. They are playing in the final for a reason. The pressure will be on and Anand is a classy player so he might do something here. It would be the first time he has even beaten Nakamura in a FIDE rated event in any time control though in 20 tries.
Dec-07-14  Strongest Force: SWT, those two probably have '0' respect for Nak; familiarity breeds contempt
Dec-07-14  schweigzwang: One of them will get his sixth White.
Dec-07-14  Absentee: <chancho: <Sir Ruthless> Anand?

Vishy bends over and lowers his trousers whenever he sees Naka.>

That's an image I really don't want in my mind.

  chancho: Naka wants it Lush N Lavish:

Dec-07-14  schweigzwang: What's that? Hack-a-delic?
Premium Chessgames Member
  chancho: haha...
Dec-07-14  Strongest Force: Anand is lost
Dec-07-14  Strongest Force: Slightly sloppy tetechnique by Nak
Dec-07-14  schweigzwang: Great tournament for Nak.

  chancho: How on Earth does Naka do it?

He keeps slapping Anand silly.

Carlsen would probably pay for the formula. ;-)

Dec-07-14  Strongest Force: Maybe Nak wants to torture him a little:)
Dec-07-14  SimonWebbsTiger: tomorrow is blitz, the 9th a consultation game event with VIPS and then we get the action proper on the 10th.
Dec-07-14  Strongest Force: 9.5/10 Bravo Nak!!
Dec-07-14  SirRuthless: I don't think the blitz is a real blitz but I am not sure... I think it is a tandem event.

  chancho: All were brought before him, and with the exception of one player who was mercifully spared, the rest were sacrificed on the slab of Rapid play. Muahahaha...
Dec-07-14  SirRuthless: Yea, I guess the cream rises to the top eh <Pulo y Gata>?
Dec-07-14  schweigzwang: Could end up Giri all alone in second on 8.5.
