  tpstar: I'm glad Adams spurned the early repetition with 22. Qf3 but there wasn't much to work with on either side. A respectable draw.
Oct-07-05  Ezzy: Every single picture I have seen of Adams so far; he looks absolutely depressed and fed up as if he just wants to go home. I challenge anybody to find me a picture where he has just a slight smile on his face. But then again he has only scored 3 points in his last 14 games, with no wins. He looks a broken man. Wow, this chess is tough at the top when you are not winning.
Oct-07-05  WMD: <Every single picture I have seen of Adams so far; he looks absolutely depressed and fed up as if he just wants to go home.>

That's just his normal expression. If you saw him waiting for a bus, that's what he'd look like.

Oct-07-05  euripides: h6 is a beautiful and interesting move. A very interesting game for all Sicilian fans.
Oct-07-05  iron maiden: <Ezzy> Here's a closeup of Adams smiling (near the bottom, you probably won't recognize it at first). http://chessbase.com/newsdetail.asp...
Oct-07-05  Caissanist: Why did Svidler give the pawn back with 32...Rg8? After 32...e5 he would have had to suffer a little, but a pawn is a pawn.
Oct-07-05  Ezzy: <iron maiden: <Ezzy> Here's a closeup of Adams smiling (near the bottom, you probably won't recognize it at first).> Isn't it obvious. He's only smiling because his hands are covering the evidence of his sexual arousal because he's standing next to Judit Polgar; or perhaps it's Nigel Short causing this smile!! :-)
Oct-07-05  PinkPanther: <Ezzy>
3 points in his last 14 games? What are you talking about?
Oct-07-05  Ezzy: <PinkPanther> 2.5/8 San Luis and 0.5/6 against 'Hydra' - I think that adds up to 3/14.
Oct-08-05  iron maiden: You're not counting his even score in Dortmund.
Oct-08-05  THE pawn: It's really sad for adams though, I wouldn't see him as a world champion, but I was hoping he would get a better score and better games. Well, it's not like he has anything to prove, everyone knows he's extremely talented, but I think he's in a serious need of a break.
Oct-08-05  Ezzy: <iron maiden: You're not counting his even score in Dortmund.> Oh yeah. Forgot about that! :-) I am from the UK so I do support Adams. Shame on me for missing this in between tournament(which I actually watched, would you believe!) I think watching his sad expression all the time is 'spacing me out!'

  paavoh: @Caissanist: <Why did Svidler give the pawn back with 32...Rg8? After 32...e5 he would have had to suffer a little, but a pawn is a pawn.> Perhaps he was a bit afraid of White getting the Rooks lined up on the g file, and g6 being a weak square. Rg8 ensured a clean way out.

By the way, I see you are just one posting away from an even 1000 kibitzes! Go for it!

h7-h6 against Mickey [Adams] in San Luis.>
