Kibitzer's Corner
Jun-14-19  sonia91: This is Artemiev's first round-robin tournament since his meteoric rise and first tournament as a top 10 player. He lost to Sasikiran in rd 3, but bounced back in the next roud beating Korobov.

After 8 rounds he and Fedoseev are tied for 2nd.

Jun-17-19  fabelhaft: This doesn’t look too inspiring:

Karpov Poikovsky (2019)/Wang Hao

Jun-17-19  fabelhaft: Also Mamedov had six very short draws.

Jun-18-19  paavoh: <Korobov vs Artemiev arm-wrestling>

Let's have this to break ties instead of Armageddon, or to discourage under-30-move-draws. Then chess could really be called a sport, and players would need to have an all-around prep ("mens sana in corpore sano").

<Korobov vs Artemiev arm-wrestling> <<paavoh> Let's have this to break ties instead of Armageddon >

No 10 minute Vs 7 minute discrepancy.

No black win, when he draws.

Sounds like a good idea.

Jun-18-19  sonia91: Looking at the last year's edition, I noticed that Artemiev finished on 3.5/9, and no Bologan this year, for the first time since the first edition perhaps.
Jun-18-19  Pedro Fernandez: <Sasikiran-Artemiev>

I'm still wondering why Artemiev allowed the opening of the column 'h' playing that horrible move 14...Bd6 ??

Even a child would have played 15.Bg3.

But Artemiev started playing badly: 6...e6 ?!

What is that? Why not 6...e5?

Later he played the dubious move 10...Qa5?! What does the queen there do in that square which is natural for the 'a' pawn?

That's why he played until he was given mate, because he deserved it. A tremendous beating by GM Sasikiran, indeed!

Jun-19-19  dumbgai: Not the greatest showing of fighting spirit in this tournament. I see multiple draws in under 25 moves.
