Kibitzer's Corner
Nov-29-12  fisayo123: This boy's chess ability and prep is insane.
Nov-29-12  Alesavio: Yes, an impressive game in computer style. I think that only Carlsen can stop this boy, for the time being!
Nov-29-12  AuN1: i guess you missed the part where he lost to morozevich earlier in this very same tournament.

  perfidious: <AuN1>: You've got it all wrong; that never happened.
Nov-29-12  Garech: Going by the database, this is the first time that Fabiano has used the Scandinavian - looks like a surprise weapon that worked a treat!


Nov-30-12  hugogomes: <perfidious>: How can you say it never happened, when it did?! Morozevich vs Caruana, 2012
