  cu8sfan: All right! Chess.FM is up and running. Cool!
May-15-05  TheSlid: I think the Bishops have to come off first.
May-15-05  cheski: Just worked it out: b6 = N3 ?
May-15-05  TheSlid: <cheski> That would be my assessment!
May-15-05  ahmadov: It shows 01 36 32 for Pono and 01 21 59 for Adams. Am I making a mistake?
May-15-05  Jack Kerouac: Cheski-Yes!Old school annotation-speak.Which I've always prefered.And I think there is plenty of play in this game, but black needs to get his K-side pawns rolling.
May-15-05  Jack Kerouac: Rolling! Rolling! Rolling! Get them doggies Rolling!
May-15-05  cheski: <Jack Kerouac: Cheski-Yes!Old school annotation-speak. > Hmm. I beg to differ: I have in my hands a book by Mieses, written in 1892, in algebraic notation. That is what I call old-school, wouldn't you agree?
May-15-05  Jack Kerouac: Geez! I guess my schooling isn't as old as I thought!

  OhioChessFan: White will take the bishop with the rook. Undoubling pawns is not an issue right now.
May-15-05  cheski: <Jack Kerouac: Geez! I guess my schooling isn't as old as I thought!> Lucky you!!
May-15-05  Jack Kerouac: Cheski-Well, I have been on the road for a while...
May-15-05  Franz the Stampede: Just why didnt Spidey took the Bishop with the pawn in order to try to create an obstacle to Pono's passed pawn?
May-15-05  ahmadov: I also think that taking Pono's bishop with the pawn would bring more benefits for Mickey. Here, he finds himself in a more complicated situation to notch a win
May-15-05  mack: Bollocks to this, the footie's on.
May-15-05  Jack Kerouac: Inspiration for a chess song; goes a little like this:"Although I've tried not to, I think I'm hopelessly drawn to you.."
Premium Chessgames Member We're getting ready to switch to another game.
May-15-05  ahmadov: It is a shame, but I can see from the official web site that this is a draw with repetition.
May-15-05  Jack Kerouac: Hey!That ditty wasn't that bad!
May-15-05  ahmadov: Yes, it has been announced to be a draw
May-15-05  TheSlid: And now the scramble to find a TV showing the football...
May-15-05  Bossi: As I thought it ends on 1/2 - 1/2.
May-15-05  WMD: The players engineered a draw without making it look too obvious.
May-15-05  iron maiden: Rats, just as I get here to watch it, they draw. Maybe I haven't giving Ponomariov enough credit; it's no mean task to draw Anand and Adams with black on consecutive days.
May-16-05  acirce: 22.Rxe3+ is the first new move and White starts the repeating sequence in move 24. As close to a non-game draw it gets.
