Kibitzer's Corner
Nov-24-07  pawnofdoom: Yay! Another no-move game for everyone to spend pages ridiculing! I think Iturrizaga failed to show up after one hour. Flight delay? Or maybe he was too scared to face Svidler. Lets see if he shows up tomorrow
Nov-24-07  syracrophy: Maybe this poor guy got scared when he saw the name of his opponent
Nov-25-07  grebenarov: Tough game! Well fought! Good job Svidler!
Nov-25-07  fgh: Svidler uses the Danailov - Topalov gambit, as first introduced in Kramnik vs Topalov, 2006.
Nov-26-07  blazerdoodle: The Toy/Dan Gambit! Accuse your opponant of cheating, and hope he quits! It would be funny if it weren't what Topy/Dan were trying to do!
Nov-26-07  grebenarov: I heard Iturrizaga spent about 20 min thinking on the 1st move. Then a handshake followed. Iturrizaga realized he had no chance. After the game Peter was in good mood and they analyzed for some time.
Nov-28-07  Laocoon: Yes. In such an incredibly complex position, I can easily understand why Iturrizaga chose to throw in the towel.
Dec-07-07  karnak64: Um, does anyone know what really happened?

Dec-13-07  meteficha: This opening is becoming more common.
Dec-13-07  cotdt: Complex position indeed. There are literally trillions of variations!
Dec-20-07  grebenarov: You're right cotdt. This position is really unpredictable!
Dec-26-07  GannonKnight: I have to play this one out on a board, because I can't visualize all these moves.
Dec-26-07  veigaman: <Maybe this poor guy got scared when he saw the name of his opponent> he is great telent but unfortunately he had problems to get there
Jan-26-08  cionics: The pressure, the pressure!
Jan-27-08  nanobrain: White lost. A full point was give to the Black player. He got a point in a chess tournament. In a chess tournament one gets points winning or drawing chess games. In a chess game, at least one move should be made. There can be no chess game if no move is made. Or if there was only one player. So there was no chess game here. In fact, it's possible that no player for the white side ever showed up. So how come black got a point here? And in a chess tournament at that?

And in a chess tournament at that?> That IS in fact the best decision: one player fails to appear - give the other one the full point. If that was not the rule, imagine what it would be if someone who for some reason intentionally does not show up just to prevent the other player to get any points? Say he got paid or something. That would be utterly unfair!
Feb-27-08  sallom89: this novelty needs to be analyzes more and more by engines!
Apr-24-08  hedgeh0g: Interesting play by both sides with neither staking an immediate claim to the centre. This game is revolutionary!
Jun-12-08  Udit Narayan: I think I would default too if my opponent was Peter Svidler!
Sep-14-12  Abulherar: i can't believe it!!!
