lek: If 23. Bd5 then Kh8 24. Bxc4? Ng5-f3 25. Rxf3 Nxf3 26. Kg2 Nxd2, losing the queen and the game for white.

lek: Congrats to Magnus the Magician! I thought that he was better all through the game and didn't understand the fuss. Anyway, this really proves that he can make it the whole way through.

lek: <Maroczy> My favourites to win are either Radjabov or van Wely. Really, van Wely is one to count on, how can one consider him a weak GM? And compared to most others, he is absolutely flawlessly dressed! Most handsome world champion of the year: a contest between van Wely and ...

lek: Magnus has said that this is the game of his with the most esthetic combination, the combination that gave him the best feeling, although he gave away the victory towards the end of the game. Obviously, what he likes is 22. Nxf6! Kxf6 23. Rxd6!! And now if 23... Qxd6 then 24. Qxe3 and ...

lek: <I am quite politically involved and tend to get carried away> Just a few comments on your political involvment, acirce. You once said that Norway is lucky, we have Magnus and we don't belong to the EU. I certainly agree with respect to Magnus, but unfortunately we don't belong to

lek: <the fact that the U.S. has supplanted Europe as the primary center of economic, cultural and military power. In Western Europe in particular, there's all sorts of former colonial powers that would love to have the power and influnce of the U.S., but will never get the chance.> My
 
   Jul-22-04 Norwegian Championship (2004) (replies)
 
lek: <poktirity>: Simen is retired because of injury, in the leg I think. He was a striker at the Norwegian national team under the reign of the famous and quite controversial trainer Mr Egil "Drillo" Olsen. I ask myself whether his chess suffered because of his football career and ...
