Kibitzer's Corner
Dec-01-04  DanielBryant: 26.Rc8!! Definitely keep an eye on this kid.
Dec-02-04  offramp: Yes, and 25.Rc7! He is only 11 years old, and it is about time we had another major representative from India; they should have at least 5 or 6 players in the top 100, not just two. Young Indian players may give up chess young for maths or - more likely - computer programming. It is a shame but they have to earn money.
Dec-02-04  Shams: yeah at 2167 he seems JUST A TAD underrated, doesn`t he!

offramp I think you`re probably right about promising Indian juniors being steered towards engineering careers and the like, but at the same time think of just how unfathomably popular Anand is. He was voted "sportsman of the century" in India. (No jokes about the lack of competition.) He is the most celebrated chess player in the world, without a doubt. Now, if you are a young Indian lad and Anand drops a word to your parents about your potential-- I think your chances of being allowed to stick with the game are pretty good. Wouldn`t you agree?

Dec-23-04  Whitehat1963: Which move is better, white's 25th or 26th?
Dec-23-04  cade: The 25th is better. 26th is a continuation of the idea of the previous move.
Jan-28-05  Noyan: I agree, Negi is an up and coming star. The only thing, Negi is a she. Looks like another Humpy Kuneru is on her way...
Jan-28-05  RisingChamp: ?????!!! Parimarjan Negi is a boy.Parimarjan is noway a girls name,and besided I have seen pictures of him.What made you think hes a girl?
Jan-28-05  RisingChamp: Offramp the atmosphere abt chess is exactly the other way round from what you express.Chess is seen as a very great thing here(unlike a nerdy activity as it is perceived in USA)and parents are very encouraging.Furthermore in fact kids are dropping out of school to concentrate on chess e.g Harikrishna who left school at 5th std for chess.
Feb-14-05  Noyan: You're right he's a boy. A commentator made me think Negi was a girl. That's why.
