May-21-04  notyetagm: I just love the final position with those beautiful, centralized, sweeping bishops on d4 and e4.
May-22-04  Everett: Screw rating, this is a well-played game. 'Nuff said.
May-22-04  nutsaboutchess: had kaparov had a bishop ad knight in the endgame like black, would he have resigned because black has 2 pawns? assume they have same color bishops....
Nov-13-04  alexandrovm: the pair of bishops where too strong! Nice game!
Feb-02-05  aw1988: 3447 performance rating is way exaggerated. Even Fischer did not score that much.
Feb-02-05  iron maiden: According to my calculations, a perfect score against average opposition of 2644 is only something around 2700, but I'm not sure that's right either.
Feb-02-05  ConspTheory06: Guys you cant have a performance rating over 3000. That the highest any rating could ever get real or performance.
Feb-02-05  aw1988: Actually I believe Fischer had a 3100 something performance rating in his matches with Taimanov, Larsen etc (although I am very vague on specific details).
Feb-03-05  iron maiden: Close; his 6-0 against Larsen was 3060.
Feb-15-05  Strategic Joker: when ever u win ur added an extra 50 points to the performance , thats how u make it to 3447 :)-
Nov-26-05  aw1988: I really don't know why I said '3100 something'.

May-12-06  blingice: Thanks for giving us the FEN that is shown in the last move of the Java program...
May-13-06  notyetagm: <blingice> You are most welcome.
May-13-06  blingice: I'm still grateful. Thank you, you so very gracious man.
May-14-06  notyetagm: <blingice> Gracious is my middle name. And you are welcome again.
May-14-06  blingice: So then we are in agreement: I am thankful, and you are gracious.
May-14-06  notyetagm: <blingice> Yes, and my graciousness is exceeded only by your thankfulness.
May-14-06  Jim Bartle: From Woody Allen's "Love and Death":

Napoleon: This is an honor for me.
Boris: No, it's a greater honor for me.
Napoleon: No, a greater honor for me.
Boris: No, it's a greater honor for me.
Napoleon: No, a greater honor for ME.
Boris: Well, perhaps you're right. Perhaps it IS a greater honor for you.

May-02-08  positionalgenius: <3000 is the highest perf you can achieve> I think thats true. Karpov scored 11/13 in linares 1994 and had a 2985 performance. As far as fischer's performance in his 6-0 wins,I don't know.
Jan-05-09  Kasparov Fan01: Ivanchuk was doing well over 3000 performance in the first half of Mtel masters 2008, not sure of that's measured on the same scale.

It's possible, and Kasparov did a 3000+ performance a few years back in some rapid asia-euro tournament.

Apr-25-09  Kasparov Fan01: Kasparov's strength shown in full flight here. Great Game
Oct-02-10  Damianx: oh cause its possible if Tiger Woods shoots 20 under par each round that,s a whatever performance 4000 say if his a opponent shoots 20 over par each round it,s still a 4000 performance what rating the opponent has has no bering on how well he played
Jul-01-15  ToTheDeath: Notice how even with reduced material Kasparov is coordinating his forces to make threats, whereas black's are scattered to the four corners of the board. Little wonder he won in such devastating fashion.

  Zhbugnoimt: consptheory said 3000 was an insurmountable performance rating. 10 years later, it has been surmounted twice.
