Kibitzer's Corner
Sep-09-08  Udit Narayan: Against such dangerous opposition, Anand makes a comfortable draw and even appears to have the better position. Really Anand's defensive capabilities are of another dimension.
Sep-09-08  shintaro go: What a forgettable tournament for these two...
Sep-09-08  VaselineTopLove: Anand seems to have developed a chess hex against Radjabov and Aronian from amongst the newer players...
Sep-09-08  itsankush: It looks like that these two are not in a mood to win a single game.
Sep-10-08  ahmadov: <itsankush: It looks like that these two are not in a mood to win a single game.> It is simply a difficult tournament...
Sep-10-08  supertimchan: Forgettable? -1 is not that bad really, considering the average rating of this grand slam.
