Oct-21-05  kvcs: Looks like Carlsen didn't manage his time well.
Oct-21-05  iron maiden: Well-played by Bruzon. When Carlsen was forced to give back the piece his position seemed to just fall apart. Hats off to for today's relay.
Oct-21-05  kvcs: A3CP=> Concludes this game with these variations===>

[29 Rb3] 'she' says: 29 -- Rg6 30 Rb7 Nd7 31 Qb5 Qe6 32 Bg6 Bc3 33 Ra7 Qe1+ 34 Kg2 wins

On [29 Rb3 Qh4], then 30 Rb7 Nd7 31 Rd7 Bf6 32 Rf7 a5 33 Rf8+ Rg8 34 Qf6+ Qf6 35 Rf6 wins

And after [29 Rb3 Qh4 30 Rh3]. this: 30 -- Qf6 31 Qh5 Qf7 32 Ng5 Qg8 33 Bg6 Ng6 34 Qh7+ Qh7 35 Rh7+ Kg8 36 Rb7 wins

A3CP is the code-name that <KVCS> gives to a well-known Chess software. It stands for 'A-Certain-ChessPlaying-Computer' and was run today on 60 seconds. You can see the 29 July 2005 Computer Ratings of Svenska schackdatorf÷reningen [SSDF--Swedish Computer Chess Association] by going to: ***

A3CP is listed there under 'her' own name; above #130 [the magical 2200-master rating] and below #47 [the mystical 2600-grandmaster rating].

Oct-21-05  firebyrd: <underrated: ... that sucks> Losin' to Bruzon with black should be no cause for big grief in itself. Magnus is doing OK here so far, with 3/7 he is performing about a little above his rating.

I guess both top seeds Ivanchuk and Nisipeanu are unhappier than Magnus at this moment...

Oct-21-05  azaris: Instant classic?

  Gypsy: It is hard to figure out Carlsen's idea behind <26...Bxb2?!>. I can find no stings after 27.Rb1 Qb4 28.Be4..., nor afer 27.Rb1 Be5 28.Bxc6 Bxh2 (28...bxc6 29.Qxe5+) 29.Be4...
Oct-21-05  underrated: <firebyrd> i am also a bruzon though, it is hard to not like any of the younger players. you want to see them all do good, its only when the get old and greedy and cocky that you can start to dislike them...(i wont mention any names because im in a good mood)
Oct-21-05  acirce: Fascinating game (from both sides)! Magnus thought that 20..Rd4 21.e7 Nxe7 22.Nf7+ Kg8 23.Nh6+ with perpetual check would have been better than what he played, and probably so.
Oct-21-05  Kaspablanca: Oye chico! lo que pasa e que el cubano Bruzon e muy fuerte chico.
Oct-21-05  Gabriel315: lol @ Kaspablanca... Tambien el fue contra un nino chico, no jodas... Ya el lo tenia ganado despues de empezar el juego. No tenia chance el tipo ni con los ojos cubierto

  cu8sfan: <with perpetual check would have been better than what he played> I estimate it would have been better by half a point. (-:
Oct-22-05  lopium: What a strange Spanish! ahahazz. Claro que Bruzon es fuerte al ajdrez, tambien esta mayor que Carlsen, y perder contre este ni˝o puede ser una vergŘuenza inmensa para un hombre como Bruzon. Estoy feliz que ganˇ Bruzon, esta muy lindo! ahahahzz!!!
Dec-02-05  Neurotic Patzer: <lopium> I don't think it would be a shame for anyone to loose to Carlsen and I think it has been very well established that age is not an issue (at least when it comes to young players)
Oct-17-09  RandomVisitor: After 23...Nc6 black is lost. Perhaps 23...a5 holds.
Oct-17-09  dannygjk: Maybe Carlsen is ok after 24...Rb4, and if 25.Rf7, then return the piece: 24...Rb4 25.Rf7 Be6. eg, 26.Qe6, Qg5 27.Bc6, bc 28.Rg1, Qe5

Oct-17-09  costachess: ...
I think that the best black move is

20. ... h6

If 21. Nf7+ the black answer is Kg8

Oct-17-09  WhiteRook48: 30 Rh3!
Oct-18-09  m0nkee1: is too complex for me to understand...
but was 14.. g5 a mistake? seems like Carlsens position collapsed from an attack he started?
Oct-19-09  dannygjk: Thanks RandomVisitor, I see after further study of the position, it looks hopeless from move 24. So I looked at move 23 and 23...b6 resulted in a position with R, B, 4 P vs. r, b, 3 p. White's extra P a passed P on f-file. Even there, a struggle for Black to draw. Most likely a white win, but maybe hope if black can force exchange of the R's.

  Biroldo: Cuban chess is one of the strongest in America and the world as well...with Bruzon, Dominguez and several others already approaching the 2,800 rating barrier.

  Pedro Fernandez: Here SF8 announces 30.Rxb7 (no 30.Rh3), threatening the mortal 31.Rxh7+ and mate in twelve.
