Jul-27-05  Medusa: First of all he hasnt make " 3 or 4 recently" he has make a lot more, and they have been BIG ones, the kind of blunders that players 0f 1900 will do, and he is supossed to be the champion of the wolrd, and he should play like that.

And second yes its non of your business.

Jul-27-05  aw1988: It's my business if you intentionally bad-mouth the players. What, I'm going to let you? No.

Also, name more than 3 or 4. I only know of Kramnik-Topalov Corus, Kramnik-Topalov MTel, Anand-Kramnik Corus. Any others?

Jul-27-05  OneArmedScissor: <Medusa>
How can you possibly say that this is "non of your business", when, in actuallity, it is none of yours either. Who made you an authority as to who is allowed to comment on a chess or not? As far as I am concerned, your opinions of are no consequence.
Jul-27-05  Medusa: aw1988:First of all, you dont allow me or not, i say what i think about a player, i dont insult anyone so chessgames wont delete my messages,he is the only one to LET ME speak

anand-kramnik petrov defence on mtel, and some others i dont remember now, and however those blunders are supossed to be made by a 5 minutes player of 1900 not by a gm supossed to be good.

And the point its not if he has make 5 or 20, the point its that those are horrible, are in the openings, they show how bad player its Blundermnik, and like it or not, he draws too much, he blunders too much, he plays boring chess, and doesnt deserve to be a champion. like it or not.

make me laugh a lot, you let people or not to talk about gms, jaajjajajajaajajajaj

OneArmedScissor: another funny clown

thanks folks you are very funny

Jul-27-05  aw1988: <AgentRgent> Close to.

<tpstar> Eh, non-chess related?

<Medusa> You clearly have not seen his other games. I'm sure Kramnik the "classical draw champion" would smash you to smithereens.

You cannot simply play "boring chess" nowadays. You have to be somewhat agressive.

By the way, he blunders more than others? Hmm. Petrosian had a few, Lasker had a few, Kasparov has had a few himself (note Kasparov your hero). No chess player, not even the world champion, can play without blunders. The next time you make a stupid statement your comments will fall on deaf ears.

Jul-27-05  Medusa: You are so funny my friend, please keep writing me replies, and to mr clown agentrgent, thanks again, he says a funny thing in the right moment, thanks man the most funny part was: "Everyone has slumps, and Kramnik is a world-class player"

of course he is a world class player, he is the Classical Draw Champion, he plays the most boring chess in the elite, he blunders much than other players, and he decreases his ELO extremely fast and easy, i see his dominance in the elite.

Jul-27-05  aw1988: Right, you have deleted your post and posted a new one. That counts. Good bye.
Jul-27-05  aw1988: And I am sorry <tpstar> for continuing, I just like to give people chances. It is dropped now.
Jul-27-05  Knight13: <And the point its not if he has make 5 or 20, the point its that those are horrible, are in the openings, they show how bad player its Blundermnik, and like it or not, he draws too much, he blunders too much, he plays boring chess, and doesnt deserve to be a champion. like it or not.> What the hell are you talking about!? He wouldn't be the champ or GM if he blunders! And Kramnik isn't a bad player! And he deserves to be called a champ. And he's a better player than you. Far much better.
Jul-28-05  mynameisrandy: <Please>, if all of you put him on your ignore list, no one will ever have to deal with him. As it is, I can't ignore his posts even though he's on my list because people quote them or make comments on them and I end up reading them that way. C'mon, it's all or nothing, we all need to be in this together. Put him on ignore!
Jul-28-05  Badmojo: I like this Medusa... he doesn't like Kramnik, good, neither do I. If he had more fighting spirit, he'd have more fans. I have no respect for any player who plays to make draws. The only time I'm satisfied with a draw is when I don't deserve one.

Kramnik is the disease and people like Medusa are the cure.

Jul-28-05  MedusaBack: Thanks for those words Badmojo, that gets out of all this sickness here , some people here its retarded, and yes Leko, Kramnik, Anand they dont deserve any respect for they short draws, specially kramnik who its the worsest draw king of all.
Jul-28-05  aw1988: <MedusaBack> Game Collection: Interesting Kramnik games
Jul-28-05  Knight13: <MedusaBack> Hey hey hey. Calm down. I'm not a Kramnik fan but I respect Grandmasters, including Kramnik. I don't care about short draws. They're still games.
Jul-28-05  Medic One: I've always got to stick up for my guy! Medusa, why do you think you might actually know something about chess?

The truth is that he's the champ. Sorry, but he is. Until someone beats him. Leko didn't. I'm pretty sure you couldn't. I don't think you could beat anyone except for the scrubs that call you patzer.

Just because he beat the almighty Kasparov all you kramnik haters want to discredit everything he does. That just looks like hate in my opinion.

So Medusa, when ever you get a game on this sight, let alone actully get a somewhat respectable rating to make the comments that you do. Stick to the begginer table at whatever weak little web sight you play at.

Anytime you would like to call me out and play me, you just let me know. See what type of chess you play since you know how catagorize everybody elses chess.

Jul-28-05  aw1988: I have ignored 'MedusaBack', but isn't it funny how he insulting Kramnik is none of my business yet he comes back on a new handle? Would it be appropriate to say- it's none of HIS business?
Jul-28-05  notyetagm: <Medic One: ...The truth is that he's the champ. Sorry, but he is.>

That is too funny! The shampion is playing so badly that you feel the need to <apologize> for the fact that he is the champion. That is very, very sad.

Jul-28-05  Medic One: <nevergoingtobeagm> Is that your only reply? Let me ask you, what does your name mean? Does it mean that you're on your way to being a gm? I can't quit figure it out.

I think I'm going to rename you. <nevergoingtobeagm> sounds a lot better. More realistic. Don't you think?

  tpstar: 8 ... Ng4!? was an interesting try, uncovering an attack on the Nd4, thus 9. e3. Yet Black's development was lagging, also the Ng4 was left hanging. So White's 2 Pawn sacrifice led to Black's Queen being attacked by minors and eventually trapped (23. b5! Ne5? 24. Rc3). Good quality game for blitz.
Jul-28-05  Dres1: Hey Tpstar... your comment is out of place here.. this is the petty arguments page.

<OneArmedScissor: another funny clown >

Good job refuting anything I said. Cry more cause you suck?

Nov-11-05  Queens Gambit: I loved the way Kramnik uses his queen.
Nov-16-09  k009ris: Why the personal attacks guys?
I thought those comments were supposed to be chess related. I scored pretty low on this game (32) ,
and wasnt there 3 fold repetition?
Now i now why, it was a blitz game!
Ng4 is pretty good for blitz if one does not react right white get get under attack!
Nov-16-09  Whack8888: Haha, it would be awesome if people actually talked like how the comments are in this game.

Would make a funny play I think!
