An Englishman: Good Evening: The online edition of the Sunday New York Times includes a game by this kid. It's a little scary to see a game like this by a player who still brings his teddy bear to the board.

Oct-15-08 wordcraft: On a totally different note: Just watched the post-game press conference. Pity those three girls who have to stand the entire time, smiling inanely. Someone should offer them a chair. Sure, they are paid, but I feel sorry for them. Some feminist should take up their cause. :-) Kramnik said he has won the second game in two of the last three matches. He's expert at delivering these little jabs.

Woody Wood Pusher: Whoever said that education is the ability to listen to anything without getting angry obviously never met <Floppy Mack>

dexterious: Anand now has Kramnik by his very small balls (which they must be - at least evidenced from his tepid play)

square dance: <dex> its interesting that you've given some time and consideration to kramnik's genitals. not because it would be interesting if you were gay. i was referring to the psychological makeup of a guy who sizes up the junk of men he hates.

Oct-21-08 Udit Narayan: In the middle of the press conference, Kramnik apparently lost his voice but, being the quick-witted gentleman that he is, took a Gazprom lady behind him by the hand and sat her down on his lap. Then he moved his lips close to hers and, as each journalist asked him questions, muttered broken English in soft inaudible whispers so that only his "honey" could hear. After several minutes, Kramnik smashed his goblet and chugged large amounts of vodka, just like a true Russian would do. When asked whether this was the end for him, Kramnik replied that the bottle was only half empty (or was it half full?) It was indeed very true: Kramnik's vodka bottle from which he had been chugging in an unrestrained fashion was half empty (or was it half full?)

spirit: The black rooks couldn't use the c file because of lack of space. The black knight tried entering the white king side in other to force an exchange (which could alleviate the space problem) but white prevented this. Lack of space is particularly troubling for knights. If we take out ...

spirit: <Indeed!! Totally dumbfounded, esp. on Kramnik, why he gave up on move 47 with 27+ min left?? At least 10-15 more moves can be played without much inferiority?! though the position is not good...> i totally agree with you, Kramnik had every reason to play on!
