Jan-15-05  Maroczy: Van Wely the forgotten man draws the great Morozevich. I'd like to see him pull off a couple of wins against Anand and Kramnik. Nahhh.
Jan-15-05  suenteus po 147: <Maroczy> I am predicting a win for van Wely in round 2 against Bruzon, so that would be a start :)
Jan-16-05  JimBean: Shouldn't 23.f4 win? He needen't move the R then and looks to be winning a piece at b7.
Jan-16-05  RisingChamp: I fail to understand how he wins a piece at b7.Nxb7 Qxb7 doesnt win a thing.
