Jul-01-04  Franz the Stampede: <ajit> I agree with your post too and it's kinda bad to read some stuff I'd expect only from stadium hooligans... And, yes, possibily there were better players that didnt make it to the finals (ivanchuk and grischuk among others) but this time it happened like this...
Jul-01-04  WMD: If Radjabov beats Adams, I'll concede that Ray Keene is a good chess author.
Jul-01-04  AdrianP: Mickey is the king of queenless middlegames.
Jul-01-04  mack: Whaaaat!? Adams won? Fantastic! It's amazing what can happen when you go to cut the grass and then come back.
Jul-01-04  WMD: What you got? A paddock?
Jul-01-04  iron maiden: Let's not forget that Radjabov lost the first game of the last match and still went on to win it.

  Gypsy: <tud: Gypsy : after Ne6 Kd6 white has to move ! And wherever he moves black gets better majority on the queen side. Pa2 is hanging also, hard to defend.> Sorry for not responding right away <tud>; I was called to tend other worthy causes. All I was saying is that with multiple more-less equal ways to proceed Adams' 38...Bd5 was keeping right with his Spider style.
Jul-01-04  mack: No, just a really bad lawn mower.
Jul-01-04  Lucky1: mack - Are you the mack that runs the ricochetrobots site?
Jul-01-04  Bobsterman3000: It's a good thing Radjabov wore the shades. It protected his eyes from the flashing, brilliant damage caused by Adams' two knights.
Jul-01-04  Marquis De Sade: Adams is on his game! I'm just waiting for him to bust out the Marshall.
Jul-01-04  PinkPanther: <Marquis De Sade>
Nobody will let him do that, he's nearly unbeatable with it.
Jul-01-04  jaime gallegos: and some people asked if M.Adams knows to play endings ... ;)
Jul-01-04  whithaw: Radjabov has scored 1-1 w/5draws vs kasparov, he is a super-GM.
Jul-01-04  PinkPanther: Yes, thanks to two monumental blunders by Kasparov.
Jul-01-04  Marquis De Sade: Yeah, pink you're right. But a win is a win is a win.
Jul-01-04  Marquis De Sade: Kaspy should follow Truman's advice and get outa the kitchen if he can't take the heat.

  offramp: I love these very rare games where black takes the pawn in the QG and keeps it right to the very end! It is still there on c4, look. It's laughing!
Jul-02-04  vonKrolock: even a regular teenager player should know that white is virtually lost if the black pawn 'c4' is consolidated in this type of Catalan... good victory for Adams, but deceptive Radjabov's performance
Jul-02-04  mack: <Lucky1> I'm almost certain that I'm not.

  tpstar: Future generations, make sure to appreciate the clever joke by <ughaibu> on Page 10 = "I don't think he'll want to cattle long either." Given the context, that was truly inspired. Nicely done!
Premium Chessgames Member
  offramp: <tpstar> I don't geddit!?! Surely it's just a typo for 'castle long'?
Jul-04-04  acirce: <offramp> Go back and look at the context.
Premium Chessgames Member
  tpstar: <offramp> I herd their fascinating discussion about livestock, but if you had no steak in the conversation, the point is moo. NOW do you geddit!?!
Premium Chessgames Member
  offramp: Right. Right... A pun.
