So now you are not only a scumbag but also a liar. Proof that you edited my post is here:

Mamedyarov vs Svidler, 2014

  perfidious: Poor, poor <ajile>.

Had I reproduced the post verbatim in that particular context, then the reader would have no idea of the identity of 'he' or what constituted 'it'. It is common courtesy to other readers to note, in parentheses, such.

If you wish to characterise my original post as mendacious, nothing I can do to stop you, but the mendacity here has been perpetrated by you. Your vicious accusations contain not one whit of truth and you would never dare make them if you were standing before me-or anyone else.

Mar-26-14  Moszkowski012273: Ohhhhhhhh don't take it personal. I'm willing to bet this "gentleman" is simply so unhappy with the cards life has dealt him, that he feels the need to act out whenever possible so he can avoid looking at his own stuff. This site is a huge part of his (probably very small) life, let him have it.
Mar-26-14  RookFile: Svidler's not going to win the tournament, but I like the fighting quality he's shown.
Mar-26-14  boz: I'm sure I have heard Kramnik say that he knows when his form is bad because he is missing things. This certainly seems to be the case in this tournament.
Mar-26-14  Moszkowski012273: Kramnik also said he's been sleeping like crap. That has to be affecting his game.
Mar-26-14  Petrosianic: It's probably BECAUSE of his game that he's not sleeping well. It's a vicious circle.
Mar-26-14  Moszkowski012273: VERY true....
Mar-26-14  csmath: Kramnik blundering has become a staple of his bad form. I'd say among the top 5-6 players he is the most prone to blunders. This could be just my perception but it does look that way rather bad. After all I won't forget him blundering mate in one against Fritz, I don't remember any other top player doing something like that.

  intuitivesac: "...among the top 5-6 players, he (Kramnik) is the most prone to blunders..."

Isn't this a little like saying that, among the last 5-6 Miss Universe winners, Miss Universe 2012 is the most unattractive?

Mar-26-14  ajile: <perfidious:>

Everything I said about your lie was true. And what I said about both games I still stand behind. Both games are Dutch openings but beyond that they are completely different variations. Anyone can see that (except apparently you) by carefully reading my original post in the first game. You screwed up and now you are doing damage control to regain your lost dignity. Perhaps now would be a good time to cut your losses and just admit you screwed up.

Mar-26-14  Jim Bartle: For what it's worth it looks like the opponents varied, not Svidler, and very early.

  perfidious: <ajile>, aka <unagi II>:

Review the content of your posts, then content yourself in the knowledge that your behaviour is that of a duplicitous wretch.

If this is insufficient, go to Rogoff and learn from such masters of the truth-twisting genre as <pipi>, <dice> and <OAS>. Their shining examples will guide the unenlightened to Nirvana.

Mar-26-14  Everett: <ajile: Reverse Larsen.
Very cool. Note how Svidler didn't go for the early ..e5 like he did last time he played the Dutch. Also he delays pawn pushes which allows a favorable transposition to a stonewall structure. White's 2 moves to combat the Dutch are either e4 or c4 and by the time he gets in c4 it's too late, Black has equalized easily.>

He didn't go for ..e5 because it wasn't there. Whites early play has to be taken into consideration. Kramnik's 2nd, 3rd and 4th moves are all far from typical responses.

Nonethess, Svidler clearly chose the Dutch in this game, and Kramnik's play clearly prevented Svidler to play "normally."

Mar-26-14  ajile: <perfidious:> Truth twisting? That's pretty hilarious coming from you.

No argument here since it's a different variation. That's the whole point. Will Svidler play the same early 8..e5 line again vs 2.g3? (or same position by transposition up to move 8?) I say no as my guess. My offer of a bet to the contrary still stands.

Mar-27-14  Ulhumbrus: One alternative to 30 Qc2 which Kramnik may have indicated is the fork 30 Ng6 followed by Nxe7+
Mar-27-14  Everett: <ajile> on your posting in the original game, you weren't clear. My sense when you said <opening>, you did not mean the entire Dutch, but the early ..e5 in that game.

But because you never clarified this, <perfidious> is very sensible in his argument. You say <opening>, and everyone on this site will think Dutch/English/French/Slav, etc. Since you meant a certain variation of it, I think the onus is on you to be more specific. Your general use of <opening> is not helping you make your point.

If there was any more clarification needed you just did it. Thanks.

  perfidious: Must be my lucky day! I've got two huge fans on this page, the dim-witted <ajile>, who cannot grasp simple writing concepts, and the maleficent <Moszkowski>, whose raison d'etre is to attempt to trash my games, though mercifully, those efforts have been crushed.

No sorry I'm not a fan of liars.

keypusher: Kasparov.>

Wrong! In 1993, Kasparov lost his tittle when split from FIDE. Karpov defeated Timman and reacquired the FIDE World Champion title. So, The current FIDE world champion from 16.October 2005 untill 13.October 2006 was Topalov. Read more!

Sad to see what's happening to Kramnik. Reminds me a lot of my result in Wijk where I would play normally and then suddenly blunder.>
