Kibitzer's Corner
Apr-03-05  Rocafella: I can safely say this isn't a great game, especially by the player's standards
Apr-03-05  hintza: I wouldn't take blindfold games too seriously.
Apr-04-05  Rocafella: <hintza> yes i suppose you're right but every game should be played with maximum effort :)
Apr-04-05  hintza: Of course! I don't remember saying anything about effort...:-)
Apr-04-05  Rocafella: yes sorry hintza lol :o) but I have to take these games seriously anyway, unless I'll get in the habit of throwing games ;) lol
Aug-17-05  notyetagm: Moro turns Kramnik into a pin cushion.
Nov-13-05  SuicidalKing: I wouldn't think that the strength of a super grandmaster diminishes much, if at all, when playing only one blind fold game.
Nov-13-05  who: <SuicidalKing> I'm afraid that's just wrong. See Kramnik vs Shirov, 2001 for one instance, although there are many.
