Kibitzer's Corner
Mar-07-07  csmath: Brilliant game by Deep Junior Singh. :-)

But indeed amazingly precise game, I don't think I have ever seen such a precision by "human" in Chigorin.

Mar-08-07  s4life: It definitely feels like white plays computer moves... but do you have any proof?
Mar-09-07  dasp3edd3m0n: Some of these moves definitely defy conventional logic...moves 35-37 in particular struck me as rather awkward.
Mar-09-07  csmath: I don't have any proof of course. This guy plays on 4th Parsvnath mostly like crap and then you see games like this. Sriram had no chance.

I used to play Chigorin a lot, it was the opening I learned and loved. This is a fantastic game by white. Black was schooled, I don't think even Anand can play this good except on rare occassion. The sheer precision of the final attack after this minor middlegame combination is stunning.

This is a great talent or more likely a good computer engine. :-)

Mar-09-07  Billy Ray Valentine: Well, apparently he's been accused of using computer assistance. Here is the article on

Mar-11-07  s4life: <csmath> Well, I was wondering if you had run some known engine and tried to see how it's evaluations matched with the actual play... I know it's time consuming to produce some kind of evidence that way though.

On the other hand, I totally agree with your comments regarding white's play in this game... precise.. too precise.

Mar-11-07  csmath: Yes, I did.

I don't ordinarily claim that here is "90% match with Fritz 9" and similar. What I believe is that when the game is played perfectly, meaning there is no a single imprecision and the execution is in accordance with top moves of computer engine then the likelyhood is that cheating occured.

Even the best players in the world regularly play here and there some inferior move, or some surprising "human" move (say Moro), or they miss complicated tactics etc.

Singh does not miss anything in this game, the final execution is brilliant. He also played flawless game against Koneru in a rather wild position. He did this again against Ibraev on Parnsvath.

I simply do not believe him, I do think he was a cheater but of course he is pressumed innocent until proven guilty.

However, I don't see his last 4 tournament performance as successful, except for Kalkota. Every one is below his rating, and every one except Kalkota is significantly below his rating.

He also need to play outside India. He promised to play Aeroflot but it didn't happen.

Mar-12-07  SniperOnG7: I don't care whether he was cheating or not...but how he/it coordinated the Rook, Queen and Bishop was astounding, aesthetic and extremely instructive!
