Sep-26-07  King mega: Another boo!
Sep-27-07  Miacat: Boo indeed. I put a small bet on Gelfand before this match at 37:1 to win the world championship tournament. He could at least make an attempt to win matches.
Sep-27-07  refutor: peopl who are complaining about gelfand's ambitions...i advise you to check out mig's comments on round 11

"The leaders take the white pieces. Will Gelfand try to make a move or is he going to try and sit on +1 to the end? Don't forget there's a huge amount of money on the line even in the middle of the pack. World Champion: 390,000 2nd place: 260,000 3rd place 182,000 4th place 130,000 5th place 104,000 6th place 91,000 7th place 78,000 8th place 65,000. The half point that separates 2nd from 5th could mean more than anyone outside of the top few usually makes in a year. Does that make you more or less conservative? Hmm. All I know is that Svidler, in clear last, should be playing like Nezhmetdinov's lunatic cousin at this point."

i imagine that is more incentive on gelfand to coast to a +1 than anything
