Jan-28-07  shr0pshire: ooh what a spoiler you are Kosintseva. This game cost Nepomniachtchi first place.
Jan-29-07  DutchDunce: YES! YES!!! Hahahahaha, I am very glad for this last game. A fitting punishment for someone who chooses to underrate and undertitle himself. The chess world does not need any more "fake provisional" players.
Jan-29-07  Shams: dutchdunce what the heck are you talking about?
Jan-29-07  Karpova: <DutchDunce> ridiculous accusation. Please provide some evidence if you can.

  tpstar: Excellent counterattack by Black. 16 ... d5 was well timed, then 17 ... d4 closed the center with tempo. I wonder if 19. h4 would have improved, maybe inducing 19 ... f6, or else Black could have tried 19 ... a5 & 20 ... a4 anyway. White set up cute back rank tricks, but 34 ... Rxc4! broke through on the Queenside decisively.
Jan-30-07  DutchDunce: <shams, karpova> What I mean by this is that, this person has no business ruining other people's ratings by playing below his real rating. We saw this happen with Wang Hao, and now we are seeing it with Nepo. I just don't think it's fair to other players.

What makes you think he played below his real rating? Do you think he ruined his rating on purpose before playing in Corus? If so, please prove it if you can! Do you blame him for not having enough GM norms so that he was still an IM (though not connected to the rating but mentioned in your first post)? Or do you blame him for the organizer's decision to invite him for Corus C and not Corus B?

I just don't think that your groundless accusations are fair to this young player. It's well-known that younger players are often underrated. In 2004 Magnus Carlsen with a rating of 2484 won Group C in front of people like Pavasovic (2615), Gagunashvili (2583), Popov (2580), Pavlovic (2548) or Smeets (2505) so he must have been even worse. Man, you must hate Carlsen and his last place (shared with Shirov) in Group A must have pleased you!

Feb-17-07  DutchDunce: Point taken. I apologize, and retract my rude and judgmental statement.
