Jan-31-09  mikedressner: I put practically all my money on Carlsen and my projected payout is 965 Chessbucks so go beat Smeets up Carlsen like you are now
Jan-31-09  Woody Wood Pusher: Even if Carlsen tips the whole board over by mistake, 45 minutes should be enough here!


Jan-31-09  waustad: We may be in for the kill on this one.
Jan-31-09  rogge: Aronian-Moro next? ;)
Jan-31-09  Marmot PFL: Lots of draws today but not here (as expected). I was surprised Adams lost already however.
Jan-31-09  mikedressner: g5!! Crafty says
Jan-31-09  mikedressner: Tons of !! for Carlsen but none for Smeets haha yes I know I made the right bet
Jan-31-09  waustad: Times may be off. Sites don't all agree so times could have been messed up during the period that there was no transmission.

  Domdaniel: Choices, choices ... 28.Ng5+ or 28.Ne5+ or 28.Qd6 or just 28.Rxe7+ ...?

Looks like the Boy Wonder had another choice in mind! Wild position for Black with only 11 mins.

No suck out for Smeets this time I think!

  Domdaniel: Or, ahem, 28.b4. But why force a marginalized knight back into play?
Jan-31-09  waustad: The official site give 1 minute for Smeets now.

Jan-31-09  mikedressner: oh yeah!! rock it!!!
Jan-31-09  Woody Wood Pusher: Wow nice job Carlsen!
Jan-31-09  waustad: He may win this tournament yet.
Jan-31-09  mikedressner: One little thing how about Schachbundesliga
Jan-31-09  Karpova: Rybka 3: <(28. g5 Rybka Aquarium (0:00.18)+8.30|d10 )>

Jan-31-09  mikedressner: Isn't chessgames going to broadcast Schachbundesliga

  Domdaniel: Draw the first eleventeen games and then finish with a flurry of wins when everyone else is exhausted? One way to win a tournament, I guess.

Does anyone know if Carlsen has played this 1.e4 c6 2.c4 line against the Caro before, with whatever move order? And when he eventually plays d4 does it transpose into a kind of Panov?

Premium Chessgames Member
  perfidious: <Domdaniel> Once White plays d4, it is a Panov, and if, instead of Bb5, he plays Bd3, it can lead to main lines of either the Nimzo-Indian when Black plays ....Bb4 or the QGD Semi-Tarrasch if Black puts the bishop on e7.
