Nov-13-08  achieve: 12...Nd3 and Black is OK, no?


Error in the score?

Moves missing?

Nov-13-08  achieve: Ah - here's part of the answer:

From the tourny page: <Eyal: <KingG: <VinnyRoo2002> I'm pretty sure they are using the boards you are talking about, but they don't seem to be doing a very good job recording the moves.>


<The players were playing too fast and not always placing the pieces accurately in the centre of a square. The technicians complained: why cant they move the pieces properly? How many times have we told them, but they won't listen... <(>>>

  perfidious: Maybe a fire alarm went off as Kamsky played his last move.
Apr-30-15  Xeroxx: noooooooooooooooo
Apr-30-15  morfishine: Ivanchuk spent so much time calculating 12...Nd3, he forgot this was a blitz game and his flag fell
Apr-30-15  Olavi: I love the quote posted by <achieve> in 2008. The players are there to accommodate & serve the technologue, not the other way round.
