  perfidious: <Marmot> All just fluctuation, as some here have had him tipped as the next (obvious) 2800 player, same as it was Naka, not so very long ago.

Time will tell.

  eternaloptimist: Grischuk & Jakovenko would be two excellent coaches for endgame improvement!
Feb-17-13  Marmot PFL: Caruana has a very bright future. One player I thought would pass 2750 but instead dropped some points is Nepomniatchi. I can't say why unless he has competing interests because I think he has the talent.

  perfidious: Anyone can play the role of frontrunner, but Anand showed the heart of a lion to win this event.

Well done!

  andrewjsacks: Thank you, <CG> for the fine, and even added, coverage of this interesting event.
Feb-17-13  csmath: Caruana kept on playing last 10-15 moves in hope that Fridman would get stroke.

Ha ha, good one! :D

  morfishine: Too bad, no wins for Fridman.

Interesting, Naiditsch tied Anand and Caruana for most wins (3), but had far and away the most losses (5)...ouch

  eternaloptimist: Anand showed two of the reasons why he is the world champ in this tourney. He has nerves of steel & is great at winning when he really needs to win. He pulled off a dramatic comeback by making up a lot of ground at the end of this tourney & passed Caruana to win it!! Kudos to Anand!!
Feb-17-13  FadeThePublic: a solid pawn up with bishop vs knight and the better position against a player rated much lower than you and the tournament on the line...wow MC would have won in like 12 moves from that position....maybe he just has poor nerves cause I could have won that.
Feb-17-13  Refused: <csmath: Fabiano is probably disappointed that in the last two rounds he got half a point while Anand leapfrogged him but that is life. Anand played better chess by far and is winning toutnament deservingly so.>

Well, Caruana should dance out of the tournament hall. He scored 2/2 against Naiditsch from games, that could have easily ended with 0/2. Caruana had his fair share of luck in this tournament. It'S all a matter of perspective I guess. Getting caught in the last two rounds is tough, but looking back at some games, he will be more than happy with his score.

Feb-17-13  SirRuthless: Pathetic display from Caruana. Horrid endgame.
Feb-17-13  King Radio: Actually, it was pretty well played by Caruana until his mistake at move 65...understandably, he can't be expected to play as mistake free as SirRuthless.
Feb-17-13  FISCHERboy: What's the purpose of 39.... g5?

  Gregor Samsa Mendel: <FISCHERboy>--It looks to me like 39...g5 gets rid of Black's doubled pawn.

Me too. Anand is a great player, who does not always get the credit that he deserves.

His interview after today's game was very revealing, in that he was extremely critical of his own play. Anyone should learn from their losses, but only a few can dissect and learn from their wins.
