A man lost.

Rubion: Nigel, looking forward to locking horns with Carlsen, Kramnik, and Anand in the the next few months?
   Jan-24-09 Corus Group A (2009) (replies)
Rubion: Who would have picked Ivanchuk, Morozevich and Wang Yue to be propping up the table over half way through the tournament? Not me that's for sure.

Rubion: You forgot that Anand also won the world championship tournament in 2007. I'd say that in terms of lifetime achievement Anand is way ahead of Topalov. Since 2005 they are more or less level pegging in tournament chess, but the big difference is that Anand has won and defended the ...

Rubion: Aronians 2753/5 was good enough for clear fourth in 2006, but now he is back in 9th. Retaining the same rating means going backwards in the ELO world.

Rubion: A delightful picture of Igor Khenkin:

Rubion: Adams wins, brilliant tactics at the end.

Rubion: What is the link for the live games? Thanks in advance

Rubion: In a way it is surprising that they invited back Topalov, Leko and Ivanchuk as they finished in the last three positions in 2007. You'd think there would be a principle of retaining the previously successful players but swapping out guys who didn't do so well to give others a chance.

Rubion: To be fair to old vanW he did beat Topalov in an earlier round, so is not a complete patzer. Plus his blunder today was less horrific than Carlsen's yesterday. Personally I think vanW has brings more to the party than many; Eljanov in particular has shown nothing so far.
