Mar-28-07  BadTemper: muhaha. my 3rd favorite opening:
Mar-28-07  BadTemper: wow thats bad. i feel better now having such a "terrible" rating. that is certainly the worst blunder ever made by a 2700+ rated player. even allowing a mate in one isnt as bad as blundering a piece this early and so basically.

Mar-28-07  BadTemper: should have been 8. Resigns.
Mar-28-07  MaxxLange: Nope. The worst is still <Christiansen vs Karpov, 1993;, played at classical time controls.

  chancho: Maybe Levon was thinking about that dance he had with Caoili when he dropped his Bishop.
Mar-28-07  argishti: yap. terouble results by aronian. man, this guy is just too chill with chess. and probably he was thinking something like that. meh, radjabov deserves this win completely. levon needs to focus more.
Mar-28-07  dehanne: Who cares? It's just rapid.
Mar-28-07  AAAAron: <dehanne><Who cares? It's just rapid> Ummmm, maybe, uhhhhhh, the people kibitzing on this site care. Just a thought.
Mar-28-07  AAAAron: 2. Bg5 and then leaving it hanging is brilliant! This opening should be called the Aronian Gambit.
Mar-28-07  micartouse: <Who cares? It's just rapid.> :) I guarantee Aronian cares.
Mar-28-07  diabloprancer: Awww, this makes me sad. Aronian is normally so good at rapid! Look at his first "notable game," the 19-move win over Sokolov!

Hopefully he'll rebound from this one...

Mar-28-07  Davolni: Before today's 2 games Aronian was +3 -0 =3 against Radja.....
Mar-28-07  Davolni: <micartouse> I am with you...:))) I think he does care... overall all that is happening today is going to be a history one day. All these games are going to be studied later, they are going to be archived and all that kind of stuff.....
Mar-29-07  ahmadov: Radja wins Aronian with black pieces in 25 moves. Not many GMs have managed to do so...
Mar-29-07  russep: what happened to Aronian in this game
Mar-29-07  Davolni: <ahmadov> yeah, u r right... Radja is the best player in the world... he managed to win Aronian in 25 moves.... not many GM's have managed to do so...
have you ever heard of the word "blunder"????
Mar-29-07  ahmadov: <Davolni: <ahmadov> yeah, u r right... Radja is the best player in the world...> Thank you for agreeing but I have never said Radja is the best player in the world...
