Kibitzer's Corner
Jan-06-07  Karpova: Must have been terrible time trouble if Harikrishna managed to get checkmated after being 2 pawns up in a rook ending. 45...Re4 looks reasonable, doesn't it?

  sisyphus: To keep the context, both players were down to about 10 seconds (no increment). Still, with draw odds, you'd think Black might have held.
Jan-06-07  ahmadov: Must be a very sad day for Hari.
Jan-06-07  ahmadov: I hope the remaining moves will be added here. It would be interesting to see how Moro managed to deliver checkmate while being two pawns down.
Jan-06-07  soughzin: I think you should always have a small enough increment as to be able to move the pieces,even at incredible speed. Otherwise you have endings like this.
Jan-06-07  arifattar: Did he deliver a checkmate or did he simply capture the King?
Jan-07-07  sheaf: after re4 how on earth can you deliver a checkmate in 10 secs with only a rook. gotta be a helpmate
Jan-08-07  VishyFan: Hari's comments abt the armageddon game with Moro... <Coming to Armageddon game where I got Black and needed a draw to advance to the next round. It was a Marshal opening where he tried a new move with a5 which in my opinion is very dubious and I got a very good position out of the opening and a pawn as well when he blundered with Qd3. Hereafter in mutual time trouble we reached a position where I had rook + four pawns and he had rook + two pawns. Here I offered a draw thinking that a player of Morozevich caliber would agree, however he wanted to win the game in any case to advance to the next round. Of course it was very obvious that he was playing to win on time. <And I was left with 2 or 3 sec and I had allowed mate :).> Even if it wasn't mate he would have won it anyway as he had three or four seconds more than me. It was a pity that a match like this ended in this way. Anyway all is part of a game and it is a nice lesson for me how to play to win on time although I am not sure I would be good at it anyways:).>
Jan-08-07  nimzo knight: Interestingly, Moro made the blunder of all times in next round against Radjabov. Was it some guilt showing ;).
Jan-08-07  Total Blunder: And where are the other moves?
Jan-08-07  Ragh: <nimzo knight: Interestingly, Moro made the blunder of all times in next round against Radjabov. Was it some guilt showing ;).> Its what we call as the law of Karma ;-)
