Nov-22-03  PinkPanther: I'm going to refrain from laughing about this game. I'm still trying to come to grips with the fact that Leko lost to a guy rated 350 points below him. No wonder he doesn't play the Caro-Kann anymore, bad memories I guess.

  technical draw: Watu Kobese is a rising South African star. This is just a sample of his skills. Watch out for him in the future.
Oct-31-04  refutor: <no wonder he doesn't play the caro-kann anymore> lol that's kinda ironic a year later ;)
Dec-15-05  Greginctw: looks like a reversed philidor.
Dec-15-05  Akavall: There is always this game.

Anand vs O Touzane, 2001

Perhaps the shortened time control had its effect...

Jun-16-06  Whitehat1963: OUCH!! 343 Elo points difference!
Dec-10-06  wellywells: Watu is a great South African I am proud of you. Your Rook for Bishop exchange was brilliant to say the least.
