Kibitzer's Corner
Nov-16-08  Blaise99a: How on earth is this a drawn position?

It is after time-control. Though earlier some of the moves looked rushed. Does anyone know the story here?

Nov-16-08  percyblakeney: Dominguez played into a prepared line here and was an hour behind around move 20. He blitzed out good defending moves and after 36. f4 he even got a big advantage. It looks as if he could have played on here since the c-pawn seems to be a bit dangerous but a draw with black against Kramnik is a good result.
Nov-16-08  cannibal: Actually I had some hopes that Kramnik would finally have his head free after Bonn, and get going here. But his form is - let me use a strong word - simply laughable. He clearly had the deeper preparation, he was up against Dominguez, not Anand, and still he had some difficulties getting a draw with white. His 2008 is just inexplicable.

Nov-16-08  Woody Wood Pusher: <Does anyone know the story here?>

Sure, Drawnik has decided to overhaul his chess since losing to Anand and removed the last obvious mistake he was making.

Now he plays for the draw with white as well as black.


Nov-23-08  MindCtrol9: No Kramnik,nobody is going to beat Leinier easilly.He is just inspired by the best,and he has the talent in every aspect of the game.
Nov-23-08  hitman84: Nice game by Dominiguez! It's obvious that he is in great form after winning the World Blitz Championship. I read somewhere that he has been invited to Linares and Corus A. Could anyone confirm?
