Feb-28-05  iron maiden: Six consecutive draws! Isn't Kasimdzhanov's play supposed to be uneven? Even his reputation is inconsistent!
Feb-28-05  kasim: Well I guess he draws because it is first time when he is invited to this kind tournaments, So right now he is just getting used to how to play againts super GM's. I hope we will see some wins in the next rounds.
Feb-28-05  iron maiden: It's not his first time; he played in Wijk aan Zee in 2001.
Feb-28-05  WillC21: <Acirce> Just out of curiosity, what do you do for a living? Or if anyone else knows, what does he do? I am very curious, for some reason. He is for sure the ultimate fan of chess!

Acirce is an Air-traffic Controller.

Feb-28-05  kasim: <iron maiden> it is not Linares. Beside now he has moreresponsibility than in 2001 or 1999 in Corus. After all he is Fide champion.
Feb-28-05  WillC21: <offramp> Serious or Joking?
Premium Chessgames Member
  offramp: Joking, sadly. I hope so anyway!

  cu8sfan: <Acirce is an Air-traffic Controller.> I don't think that's true but if it is I better not fly over Sweden with the air-traffic guy busy posting on a chess site instead of preventing plane crashes! (-;
Mar-01-05  WillC21: <cu8sfan> I was thinking the same thing! How in the world are planes going in and out of Stockholm if Acirce is always playing and thinking of chess!
Mar-01-05  kasim: <cu8sfan> nice shot.

  tamar: <offramp> has a wicked sense of humor. It is well known of course that <acirce> is not one player, per se, but a team of Swedish players, theoreticians, political scientists, and writers. No one person could analyse and post so much obviously :-)
Mar-01-05  WMD: <a team of Swedish players, theoreticians, political scientists, and writers> Sounds like the Nobel Prize Committee.
Mar-01-05  AgentRgent: Acirce is actually a SuperComputer...

A.C.I.R.C.E. (Advanced Computer Intended to Revolutionize Chess Everywhere.)

Mar-01-05  AgentRgent: Or maybe he's a secret Canadian activist...

A.C.I.R.C.E. (Advocating Communism Is Really Cool Eh?)

;-) j/k Acirce

Mar-01-05  AgentRgent: <qkey123> 17. Qf1 stops the attack.
Mar-01-05  Shah Mat: BOEING 747 x runway 12 CHECK


Mar-01-05  Saruman: <Shah Mat> How about A380 instead?
Mar-01-05  fgh: lol <AgentRent>!!!!
Mar-01-05  dankem: After all the small talk, I think <acirce> is now more than welcome to unveil some of the mystery...I'm kinda curious, too.
Mar-01-05  fian: lol @ AgentRgent.
Mar-03-05  AgentRgent: <fian: lol @ AgentRgent.> You must have seen me play chess... ;-)
Sep-26-06  positionalgenius: Interesting Marshall attack draw.Leko drew all 12 games at linares this year,but you can't say he didn't try to win this one.
