Mar-19-13  Shams: <Check It Out> Love it.

<SamAtoms> The others:

2 ...the curtain was up.
3 ...Someday I intend to read it.

Mar-19-13  Maatalkko: Kramnik is trying to pull a Carlsen. So far he has successfully gone from slightly worse and passive to slightly better and active over the span of 20 moves, but can he duplicate the part where he confuses a world-class player into blowing a drawn game? Kramnik does not regularly execute that part.
Mar-19-13  DcGentle: The key here is to create imbalances of any kind, of course only these favoring oneself. ;-)

  OhioChessFan: People pretend to like the Beatles artsy fartsy later work for the same reason really stupid people who don't play chess are attracted to a chess site. It makes them feel good about their pseudo-intellectual selves. If people were consistent, they'd be just as enthralled with classical music as they are with the Beatles.
Mar-19-13  kellmano: <aylerkupp> that's why I prefaced it with admiration for him. Just rankles a little bit that is all as the rest had to qualify. He's a great player and seems a good lad. There will be no tears from me if he wins.
Mar-19-13  lost in space: Kramnik needs his first win or MC and LA are too far away. But this position is not a good base to win a game. Over-pressing would lose - as often.
Mar-19-13  Caissanist: The Beatles were the Bobby Fischer of music. They might or might not be the best ever, but there was a time when they seemed to be bigger than music itself.
Mar-19-13  Travis Bickle: draw is coming.
Mar-19-13  lost in space: and Mozart was the Carlsen in music.
Mar-19-13  Travis Bickle: <Caissanist: The Beatles were the Bobby Fischer of music. They might or might not be the best ever, but there was a time when they seemed to be bigger than music itself.> Very interesting comment!
Mar-19-13  lost in space: Yeah, here the draw idea: 48...Ng4 49. Qe4 Nf6 50. Qe3 Ng4 -->1/2

  tpstar: <Just rankles a little bit that is all as the rest had to qualify> At least this DRR is eminently more fair compared to 2005 when Radjabov only needed $1,000,000 US and an official state sponsorship to become the official challenger. Then Kramink beat Topalov, and that all went away.

Kirsan must be loving this tournament. Fighting chess in every round.

  OhioChessFan: Interesting <Caissanist> but there's no maybe about Fischer.
Mar-19-13  Marmot PFL: 3 time repeat coming it seems
Mar-19-13  DcGentle: <lost in space>: Kramnik, who got that far, won't give in to a draw so easily here, and I guess that Radjabov knows it.
Mar-19-13  Marmot PFL: Well I picked them all right today but the odds were so bad I didn't feel like betting.
Mar-19-13  Robed.Bishop: They've drawn.
Mar-19-13  DcGentle: Ok, draw, then Kramnik was too tired. He cannot be content, I bet.
Mar-19-13  The Snark: Pink Floyd owes part of their sound to Alan Parsons, who engineered "Dark Side of the Moon ".

  chessgames.com: Thanks to everybody for participating in today's live broadcast quadruple-header. The action continues tomorrow at 14:00 GMT (10:00am USA/Eastern) with our featured game Ivanchuk-Carlsen. Hope to see you then!
Mar-19-13  lost in space: Next game with white is already a must win game for Kramnik already to keep the pave with MC and LA
Mar-19-13  DrAttitude: Bobby Fischer was the best chess player ever. <Caissanist> There is no maybe. The Stats and History are out there to prove it.
Mar-19-13  Caissanist: My vote is for Kasparov, but I don't think we need to rehash that discussion for the 10,000th time. Appreciate the kind words, I'm glad you guys liked the analogy.
Mar-21-13  Abdel Irada: <SamAtoms1980: <OneArmedScissor: People hold the Beatles in godlike status because they were the last relevant thing to come out of England.>

You can make a very strong case that Pink Floyd picked up right where the Beatles left off.>

And there are those who persist in seeing merit in Sting and the Police.

Mar-21-13  Abdel Irada: <OhioChessFan: People pretend to like the Beatles artsy fartsy later work for the same reason really stupid people who don't play chess are attracted to a chess site. It makes them feel good about their pseudo-intellectual selves. If people were consistent, they'd be just as enthralled with classical music as they are with the Beatles.>

Thank you, <Elvis>.

Spoken, of course, without a trace of envy or bitterness.
