    draw because i said so

    ok. draw as I voted before

    It was just great to be able to say we played against Anand. I thought (perhaps wrongly) that we were not supposed to discuss moves before voting. Because it was hundreds of people voting, the move has to be the most popular, even if it is not the best. I found it fascinating. I was one of those who was pleased to suggest the draw. It's only a game (I always tell myself that if I don't win!).

    I'm surprised it wasn't Anand that won.  It was part of a set of simul games, though.

    Kasparov would have won. It's a real shame he retired... And coming back to this event, I think it was a real let down.

    It was sad. I'd rather have lost the game than seeing a draw by repetition. Is this the world champion? What a shame... FIDE should change many rules in order to avoid excessive draws, otherwise chess championships will become more and more boring - see what happened in Anand vs. Gelfand this year. Really, it was a shame. Was he in a hurry to do some other thing? Did he suspect there were players using engines? We weren't playing finely - it was a vote chess and I disagreed in some moves (especially from 10th to the end). I thought we should have made use of a potential space advantage on the king side and have pushed our pawns forward, and do not have them blocked by a pair of knights, but these are my thoughts and it was a vote chess. So, I was disappointed with the match.

    it was fun but I can't believe it drew so quickly

    His nickname is Drawnand and it is a simult.  I was positive the result would be a draw.

  • 20 months ago


    I was right! It was a draw!

    In my opinion it is going to be really hard to win this player. Some people say that all world can easily win because they can discuss what to do and vote. However,i don't think so because good players are rare. I mean, in The world there will be more bad players than good players and because of that we probabilly won't be able to allways choose the best (or Anand will choose better than us). And also he we will be able to see our discussions and see what we are thinking to do next.

    But I think is a unique opurtunity and a great iniciative from Chess.Com.
