Nov-22-07  Jim Bartle: You call these guys elite players? Ivanchuk missed a table-base win on move 112, and Leko on moves 145 and again on move 158! Embarrassing.

  Messiah: Sry for my bad English.

During the transmission I was frightened by that Leko found that great draw with cca 0.5 secundum of thinking.

Nov-22-07  HOTDOG: 215 moves in about 5 minutes is amazing...
Nov-22-07  Jim Bartle: Put those fingers in the whirlpool...
Nov-23-07  jamesmaskell: I think the TC was 4 minutes plus 2 secs increment per move. They must have been shattered after this game!
Nov-23-07  anandrulez: <Jim Bartle: You call these guys elite players? Ivanchuk missed a table-base win on move 112, and Leko on moves 145 and again on move 158! Embarrassing.> Its blitz my friend

Did you hear that whooshing sound? It was the joke flying over your head.

Nov-23-07  acirce: "Blitz", so what? Thanks to the increment they had at least 2 whole SECONDS to think on every single move. Why would any 2750+ player need more than that? Standards are going down, I tell you...Fischer and Capablanca would have wiped the floor with these guys.
Nov-23-07  rover: Another boring draw. These so called "elite" players really need to try harder or we'll never see chess games on prime time TV.
Nov-23-07  apple pi: Is the footage of this game accessible to the public?
Nov-25-07  capablancakarpov: < Jim Bartle: You call these guys elite players? Ivanchuk missed a table-base win on move 112> A tablebase win with 8 pieces on the board? Are you from the future? Such tablebases don´t exist yet! Anyway, the full post was a nonsense.
Nov-25-07  Jim Bartle: Thanks, it was intended to be nonsense.
Nov-25-07  capablancakarpov: In move 213 Ivanchuk missed a beautiful win with 213.Re5! Qc6(Qd8 doesn´t work) 214.Be4 Qd7 215.Bg6 and black must give the Queen for the Rook to avoid mate. Anyway, astonishing how this supermen can play so good and so fast, unbelievable.
Nov-25-07  Resignation Trap: <capablancakarpov> Did you finish a complete analysis to this game already? You are fast!
Nov-26-07  capablancakarpov: <Resignation Trap> LOL... Not, serious now, when i said that i was astonished about their play under such conditions, i wasn´t saying that their play was perfect, i´m sure that there are a lot of mistakes, what i wanted to say is that they play extraordinary well having only about 4 seconds of thinking per move.
Mar-22-08  Wone Jone: Are we there yet?
Jan-14-09  WhiteRook48: what a Stalemate swindle!
Feb-06-09  WhiteRook48: Nice game
Feb-20-09  WhiteRook48: was there any way that Ivanchuk could have avoided the draw?
