  Penguincw: Well that's a nice way to bounce back from yesterday's, events: a win. So's decisivesness streak continues, as he remains tied with Holt for fewest draws in the tournament (1).
Apr-11-15  Junbalansag: Akobian's win yesterday was a shame.So never cheated him. he motivated himself that was why he was scribbling. Some rules need to be reprobated to save the sports.

The world needs fewer reprobates, not more of them.

Apr-11-15  druukee: It looked like a game between players of a different class. Probably just a bad effort by Gata. Nice win by So.

We must all be alert, for we all know the world needs more lerts.

Apr-11-15  Bartacus: White's 11th move Nc3 seems harmless at first glance, but I think the correct plan was Nbd2, which keeps an eye on e4. White wasted time with his knights, putting them on squares that couldn't do much.
Apr-11-15  Pulo y Gata: Gata was simply outplayed. Maybe the forfeiture put enough fuel on Wesley to play better. Another win tonight and I'd say his chances at Gashimov are improved.
Apr-12-15  bubuli55: Wesley wins G 10 ! Impressive win against Kamsky. Congratz!

Wait. Kamsky just stood up and he's with the arbiter!

The arbiter asked Kamsky ... Did you get distracted? Was he taking notes?

Kamsky without hesitation said ... No. I just need to fart.

So. The arbiter stinks!

  HeMateMe: no farting at the board! Kamsky is given final warning by arbiter....

  patzer2: The final shot 56...Qa6+! combining the skewer and knight fork tactic would make for a good Monday puzzle.
