Jun-14-05  yunis: i dont see a win for white yet' dublled rooks on 2 rank with king coming for pressure would make a draw at least
Jun-14-05  dhotts: White wins with 28. Qf3!
Aug-19-05  woodenbishop: According to the profile of Rodrigo Vasquez, his highest rating ever achieved is 2542, yet the score card for this game shows his rank as 2642... so which is it?

  WannaBe: <Woodenbishop> That is highest rating achieved within this site's database. (At least that's how I read it.)
Aug-19-05  woodenbishop: <WannaBe> Since has in its database, a game played by Vasquez rated 2642, then by logic, shouldn't his highest rating in the database be 2642 and not 2542?
Premium Chessgames Member
  WannaBe: <Woodenbishop> That is a good point. Perhaps the page of Rodrigo needs to be updated. :-)
Aug-25-05  DanRoss53: Nice upset by White in what appears to be a case of superiour book knowledge (as demonstrated by 12. ♘d5!?)
Aug-25-05  Shams: An American tournament, and USCF ratings are significantly inflated at the top end. Probably every country has a bit different numbers-- it only makes sense to use FIDE ratings, which is probably what cg is doing.
Aug-25-05  Shams: compare to:

Nakamura vs Gelfand, 2005

Oct-26-05  ChessKata: I know Jake, he is friends with Nakamura.
