Kibitzer's Corner
< Earlier Kibitzing  · PAGE 3 OF 3 ·  Later Kibitzing>
Feb-04-13  Strongest Force: Nyzhnyk's opponent just left a piece hanging and the young GM didn't take it. Moral of the story: don't trust the relay.
Feb-04-13  AuN1: nice start for young nyzhnyk. one of my favorite up and coming young talents.
Feb-04-13  waustad: It gets rather confusing because they have 6 tournaments going on at once. Chessbomb seems to have some games from a few different sections thrown together which made it more difficult to figure out what is going on. From the results server: it seems that Section G is a Scheveningen system event between two sets of women. Section B is a Swiss for women and what we have here is Section A, the open Master event. It was described as a "men's" section but there are at least 2 Indian women in it.
Feb-04-13  Ezzy: The big shock is that the number 2 seed Denis Khismatullin (2655) is on 0.5/3 with a rating performance of 1990!!

He lost against FM Tsydypov Zhamsaran (2384) RUS and lost against FM Yuferev Oleg (2306) RUS

He then made a draw with WFM Bharathi R. (2099) IND

So after 3 games has already lost 21 Elo points. OUCH!!

Feb-04-13  Strongest Force: When Rauf was 14, I started talking to him on ICC. It was one of his incognito accounts and I thought he was Nak. To make it short, he has the attributes of a saint to put up with my  BS
Feb-04-13  waustad: I was mistaken. Sections F and G are round robins of young players, F is boys and G is girls.
Feb-05-13  Strongest Force: Today is queen-trouble day. Rauf gains one and Nyzh loses one.
Feb-05-13  Refused: <PhilFeeley: So I guess neither Inarkiev nor Potkin showed up?>

Is it possible that they were recruited as seconds for the candidates?

Wasn't Potkin friends with Grischuk? But that's mere speculation on my part.

Feb-06-13  Strongest Force: Raufy going for some of his trademark craziness after only about 10 moves. It has all been seen before but one always wonders what will happen when a granade explodes in a minefield.
Feb-06-13  iqbalianpawn: hello guys.. Anybody knows the format of the tournament.. Its 75 players and everything seems mixed here...
Feb-07-13  Blunderdome: I think it's a Swiss, but some games are missing from CG's database.
Feb-08-13  Strongest Force: I was transfixed with Nyzhnky's KID up until 22..Nh7(?). I had to move to Vishy-Fab after that.
Feb-08-13  Ezzy: <iqbalianpawn: hello guys.. Anybody knows the format of the tournament..>

9 Round Swiss.

Feb-08-13  PhilFeeley: I don't know why <> can't get the table right. has them all.
Feb-08-13  Ezzy: <PhilFeeley: I don't know why <> can't get the table right. has them all.>

They do the table by the amount of games available for their database. A lot of the games aren't immediately available.

Feb-09-13  Strongest Force: Raufy loves the dragon Sicilian.He loves it so much, he played it with white in round 8.
Feb-10-13  PhilFeeley: <Ezzy> Why do they even bother to put the standings up then? They make no sense. There are lots of tournaments where lists just the names of the competitors, so this one would be a good candidate for that format.
Feb-10-13  Eyal: <There are lots of tournaments where lists just the names of the competitors, so this one would be a good candidate for that format.>

Actually, they have a "default" format for each event, but you can easily switch between them - it's a matter of changing "&crosstable=1" to "&crosstable=2" at the end (i.e., Moscow Open (2013) to Moscow Open (2013)).

Btw, the correctly updated standings can be seen at Right now, going into the 9th (and final) round, there are 7 players who share the lead with 6.5 points - Nepomniachtchi, Maletin, Mamedov, Savchenko, Kokarev, Khairullin & Smirnov.

Feb-10-13  Refused: Congratulations to GM Savchenko for winning the Moscow Open with 7.5/9
Premium Chessgames Member <Why do they even bother to put the standings up then?> We have no way of knowing in advance how well the official site will be when releasing PGN. You are right: we should remove the scoreboard and revert to the list of names, and we did. Hopefully the missing games will become available soon.

And congratulations to Boris Savchenko.

Feb-11-13  John Abraham: Congrats Savchenko. Nepo came close, he is a fantastic player as well.
Feb-13-13  kellmano: Savchenko is a genius. I recommend playing through his games to anyone. Creative as hell.

I know nothing more about him than this.

Feb-16-13  Beholder: <kellmano> Perhaps there are some particularly creative games of GM Savchenko you can recommend? I'd appreciate if you point out a few.
Feb-16-13  kellmano: Hi <beholder>

This one is fairly typical of his style:

B Savchenko vs A Goganov, 2011

Feb-17-13  Beholder: <kellmano> Thank you. Indeed a very unusual game.
