Jun-04-09  Billy Ray Valentine: I assume this was a blitz game?
Jun-04-09  chillowack: Why do you assume that? Because Pelletier got so badly outplayed?

He played as though he was terrified of Karpov. Karpov played beautifully.

  plang: No, it was not a blitz game. It was from the annual Biel tournament: 6 player double round robin. Karpov finished 2nd a half point behind Anand.
Jun-04-09  Brown: <he played as though he was terrified of Karpov. Karpov played beautifully> Is it easier or harder to play beautifully if your opponent is terrified of you?
