Feb-03-09  KingG: Apparently Svidler finished the game with more time on his clock than when he started.
Feb-04-09  shr0pshire: <KingG> Well that is how you know you are a super grandmaster. Super grandmasters can do things that mortal chess players can't, like beat Sefanova in 22 moves, and end games with more time on their clocks than when they started.

An interesting game anyway, although I am surprised Stefanova couldn't at least get through these preliminary complications. Although a little unusual it didn't seem incredibly daunting.

LOL! If I were sexist, I'd insert a joke or two about this game.

Feb-06-09  outplayer: 20...Ne5??
Feb-07-09  jhoro: <If I were sexist, I'd insert a joke or two about this game.>

and if she had the chance to play chess with you she would have kicked your macho sexists ass blindfolded.

she finished in the top 10 with 7/10 ahead of many able male players

Feb-07-09  jhoro: <20...Ne5??>

rather 18...Kg7?

18...Bb7 or 18...Ne5 were better, but probably still loosing.

Feb-07-09  KingG: To be fair to Stefanova, I'm pretty sure this was opening preparation by Svidler.
Feb-07-09  Ladolcevita: I think Stefanova could beat all the man upstairs....
Feb-07-09  waustad: 3 women tied for 6-11 there, Stefanova, Cramling and Dzagnidze, with +4.
Feb-08-09  kingsindian2006: kiddie game is down the street young lady
Feb-08-09  Jim Bartle: "kiddie game is down the street young lady"

...where Kramnik, Ivanchuk, Karpov, Anand and many other nice boys are playing.

Come on, everybody blunders or plays bad games now and then.

In classical chess of course. In blitz, I'd probably wipe the floor with her, really.

Feb-24-09  KingG: <JointheArmy> <In classical chess of course. In blitz, I'd probably wipe the floor with her, really.> Does she have a low online blitz rating?

That's called "good opening preparation".

One of the funniest comments I have seen on chessgames. I would say no more than maybe 5-10 chessgames members with at least 10 posts could beat her in a blitz match.

It's interesting that Svidler who once considered, whether fairly or not, somewhat lazy, has now demonstrated absolutely fantastic opening preparation in many games during the past 12 months.
