   Oct-21-08 Anand - Kramnik World Championship Match (2008) (replies)
DukeAlba: After losing two games as white, I think Kramnik will lose his nerve and lose the rest of the match. Kramnik now atleast has to grab 3 wins and 4 draws. Anand will not drop more than two games in my opinion, I'll be surprised if he loses one.

DukeAlba: Who is the real <WannaBe>? What <WannaBe> doesn't want you to know is that he once had a questionable affair with Elmer Fudd... Is this the rabbit you want running CG? <WannaBe> doesn't want you to know that he was actually

DukeAlba: <sentriclub> I might find myself thinking the same about 2...a6. But then again Nc6 was what I would have played myself so now we'll see what comes out of it. But I trust in the collective judgement of the team and I think that we'll get through anything that GMAN throws at ...
