  chancho: Gotta give the kid credit, he played an outstanding game.
Dec-04-07  Kleve: Wow... I love playing the King's Indian, and this was a brilliant attack! Wish mine looked like that...
Dec-04-07  AlexandraThess: Poor Wang :( What a pitty - he lost so important game to a player whom he outclasses.
Dec-04-07  Landzhev: saying that wang outclasses Chepa is certainly not the smartest thing to state publicly... outclasses him based on what?

Not really. Besides getting knocked out -- Cheparinov is unofficially 15 points ahead of Yue at 2717 to 2702.

Dec-04-07  Jim Bartle: A chestnut comes to mind...ah yes: "It's not enough to be a good player. You have to play good chess."
Dec-04-07  grebenarov: Guys what do you think? Was it possible to predict the win for sure at move 26? Chessbase.com says: "26...Bxa3! Simple and nice." I personally don't see anything so simple here. In any case: Congratulations to Cheparinov!
Dec-04-07  Jim Bartle: "Simple and nice." With a knight under attack, black throws a bishop and a rook into the fire. I guess it's not that tough to see black will get a piece back and leave the king isolated, but it got complex after that. (For me at least)
Dec-04-07  ivan999: Somebody calling himself Martin posted that on Susan Polgar's blog.

A translation from Bulgarian:

A unique event happened in the playing hall at Hanty-Masiisk. Until now over 500 games were played for the past week and upon the end of each game the players were quick to exit the hall and start focusing on the next battles and relax. This was not the case, however, with Wang and Cheparinov, who after shaking hands upon the games end, put all the pieces on the board again and played multiple blitz games for a few hours. The entire public surrounded them. A real gesture towards the chess game and fans, unseen from the time of Capablanca.

Dec-04-07  lew morski: Cheparinov moves ahead. I guess being a assistant of Topalov let him improve his play. It's funny that prize for winning Khanty-Mantijsk is Toppy, now waiting for challenger.

Dec-05-07  apple pi: <This was not the case, however, with Wang and Cheparinov, who after shaking hands upon the games end, put all the pieces on the board again and played multiple blitz games for a few hours.> Now that's stamina!!!
Dec-05-07  fligorna: Is it truth? The Khanty winner will play with TOPA??
Dec-05-07  dumbgai: I'm quite sure Cheparinov wouldn't have played the extra blitz if he didn't have a rest day in between. :) Even though I was rooting for Wang Yue, Cheparinov's play is very impressive in this game. A match between him and Topalov would certainly be very interesting.
Dec-05-07  ikipemiko: Chepa was the clear favourite in this mini match!
I think that the future of chess is in the hands of Sergey, Magnus and Ivan - and it will be bright future!

  Honza Cervenka: <Chepa was the clear favourite in this mini match!>

Cheparinov is very talented player but his rating is somewhat lower than Wang Yue's (despite of the fact that Wang Yue is the younger of them) and his score with Wang Yue was 0:2 before this minimatch according to games in this database. Chepa was hardly "the clear favourite" here.

Dec-05-07  ikipemiko: Yes, Chepa has a lower rating and has a negative score against Wang but it seems that you didn't watch Chepa of lately (last year).
Dec-05-07  badest: Well, if the "live" rating is correct, Chepa actually had 10p or so higher ELO than Wang (before the mini-match).
Dec-05-07  s4life: <Jim Bartle: "Simple and nice." With a knight under attack, black throws a bishop and a rook into the fire. I guess it's not that tough to see black will get a piece back and leave the king isolated, but it got complex after that. (For me at least)>

I am happy to see Chepa reach new heights while being true to his uncompromising attacking style.. good luck tomorrow!

Dec-05-07  cotdt: Cheparinov is as hot as ice. If you've ever been to heaven, this is twice as nice.
Dec-05-07  jhoro: <ikipemiko: Yes, Chepa has a lower rating and has a negative score against Wang but it seems that you didn't watch Chepa of lately (last year).> Ivan lost both games to Yue this year in July. I don't think there are clear favourites in any of the pairings though i find Ivan's been playing very solid chess in this cup so far. this game in particular looks very nice

  Mateo: g3 was the good move but Wang Hue didn't play it at the right time. 26.g3 was too late, allowing a brilliant double sacrifice. But 25.g3 was good, before the Bishop arrives on the a3-f8 diagonal. If 25...Bf8? (25...Nh3) 26.gxf4 Bxa3 27.bxa3 Rxa3+ 28.Kxa3 Qb4+ 29.Ka2 Ra8+ 30.Na4 Rxa4+ 31.Qxa4 Qxa4+ 32.Kb2, White has some material edge.

IGM Rozenko says on Chessbase that 23.Ka2? was the turning point. I think is wrong. 25.Rd2? was the blunder giving Cheparinov a winning attack, meanwhile 25.g3 holds.

Dec-05-07  halloween: So, what about the underpromotion on move 40? Was that really the swiftest way to a win for Chepa... or was he trying sadistically to prolong the torture?

Yes it was.
