Kibitzer's Corner
Mar-19-07  percyblakeney: Well defended by van Wely, Radjabov's position looked threatening for a while but it was probably never more than that, and the last 20 moves or so black is winning.
Mar-19-07  argishti: i dont understand why would rajabov go on where he is down a piece and has a pawn on c2 to deal with.

  plang: Probably because it is a blitz game.
Mar-19-07  KamikazeAttack: or arrogance
Mar-19-07  MrPatzer: Or maybe he couldn't believe that Van Wely was actually winning.
Mar-19-07  Confuse: Agree with all statements above... Radjabov really lacked respect for Van Wely after their blindfold maybe?
Mar-20-07  Ashram64: or he just pissed off! come on..that's what hot-rod teenager do these days.
Mar-20-07  Marvol: Maybe Radjabov thought it was a blindfold game and was hoping for van Wely to drop his pieces.

Nice win by Kingloek, now let's hope he gets onto the score board in the blindfold games, too.

Mar-20-07  aragorn69: A well deserved win. And a well deserved loss too!
Mar-22-07  argishti: hey, dont bring radjabov down. He is a fine player, and had a bad start at this tournment.
