  cu8sfan: Hi y'all, especiall <acirce>. We talked about Moro not losing any games with classical time control this year. Here's his only loss.

I found it in the German chess magazine "Schach", October issue. It's been annotated by Emil Sutovsky himself on seven pages. Maybe if I find the time I will give his analysis for some of the moves.

Oct-31-04  RisingChamp: This is the sort of game you would expect from these two hyper-aggresive players.
Oct-31-04  acirce: Thanks <cu8sfan>. But was it really played this year? gives it as 2003, and looking at it is indeed counted during the Apr-Jul period, but it still says <2003-10-18>

  cu8sfan: I have my information from the chess magazine. Now I went to look at the 4NCL home page. Here's the result of division 1, 11th round: When checking out the schedule I found that round 11 supposedly was played on May 23rd 2004:

Sutovsky wrote in the chess magazine: This game was played in the last round of the ... Four Nations Chess League. My team Guildford needed a win to claim the championship title...

Oct-31-04  acirce: Okay, good research, so you're definitely right then. :-) Thanks again!
Jul-27-05  PinkPanther: Yeah, I think Adams' rating was too high for that to have been played in 2003, his name is right under Moro's on that chart.
Jan-10-17  cyclemath: There's a thread on Facebook today where this game has come up. It's entitled 'What is the furthest you have ever travelled for a single game of league chess?' The posts are mainly confined to journeys within the UK, but Emil Sutovsky has stepped in to say that he travelled from Tel Aviv to Birmingham to face Morozevich in this 4NCL game.
