Feb-13-11  veigaman: Fantastic game, ding seems to have a brilliant future
Feb-17-11  JohnBoy: Actually, , while I very much like Ding and enjoy this game, it is rather canned. Ding plays the attack well, but it doesn't strike me as clever or original. Kind of like watching a Meg Ryan movie.
Feb-17-11  BishopsPawn: <JohnBoy>, I'm not a good chess player, but what more could you want than a win with the black pieces? I doubt that Mekhitarian felt like he was in a Meg Ryan movie!
Feb-17-11  Kazzak: Ooooooooh, JohnBoy!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The depth of your analysis is awe-inspiring!!!!!!!!!!!

Really. Deep, man!!!!!!!!!!!!


Meanwhile, what do we have here?
Did you actually go through the game, JohnBoy, there are lots of black oddities here - a quirky game, which might not look like much as you're running an engine alongside it, but white succumbed to complications here, while actually at advantage ...

Chess is a game played between humans, against a clock and each other.

Wicked excellent analysis. Kudos to JohnBoy for that.

As far as I'm concerned, it's already interesting at black's 9th move.

I am looking at the KID from the black side. Very tough to play!
