Kibitzer's Corner
Oct-30-07  Bobak Zahmat: A superb game by Morozevich. Unbelievable how great this guy plays versus a 2700+ player.
Oct-30-07  pacelli: Amazing that classy, solid, potential world champ Akopian can lose to reckless player like Moro. But Moro is genius!
Oct-30-07  Riverbeast: Morozevich is beautiful. He's been a breath of fresh air in the chess world ever since he arrived at the top levels.

Just when people say computers have ruined chess, there's no more creativity in the game, etc., a guy like him comes along and shows how rich the game still is.

He may never become world champion (he said in an interview he's not even sure if he wants to) but he has brought something new to the game. He is a genius.

Oct-30-07  ounos: I'm just amazed by White's opening. Can this work? I'm at move 8, anxious to see the rest of it!
Oct-30-07  pacelli: <Riverbeast> <He may never become world champion> Anyone who dares to play the way Moro does cannot even dream of becoming a world champ, dude:-) But he'll be a champ in many ppl's books for sure.
Oct-30-07  syracrophy: <Riverbeast: Morozevich is beautiful. He's been a breath of fresh air in the chess world ever since he arrived at the top levels.>

You're exaggerating so much. He's not that good. You have to see between more and better players

Oct-30-07  acirce: <Just when people say computers have ruined chess, there's no more creativity in the game, etc., a guy like him comes along and shows how rich the game still is.> You don't need Morozevich to know that those silly notions are more than absurd.
Oct-30-07  Shams: <more than absurd> don't meet one exaggeration with another one. there is a grain of truth in riverbeast's comment.
Oct-31-07  myra: Amazing Moro!!!
Oct-31-07  hovik2003: I don't want to disrespect Moro's fearless and pleasing style of play, but Akopian must have been on some kind of hallucinogenic to divert to a opening like this and after 10th move take the road to the wonderland which Moro is such a specialist and vertuso in it.

  tamar: Akopian starts out just trying to batten down all hatches-most notably the h file with ...g6- while Moro starts lifting rooks and making dark square inroads.

By move 29 Moro has his four pieces on the third and fourth rank, while his King seemingly exposed early has never moved.

Oct-31-07  Riverbeast: <You're exaggerating so much. He's not that good. You have to see between more and better players>

Yeah, okay syracrophy.

Nov-03-07  Broon Bottle: I'm so glad that Moro has bounced back after Mexico. I had feared that he would be down hearted. He reminds us all why we love this game. Congratulations to John Nunn at the world problem.
