What do you think will be the openings for the anand vs gelfand match?

  • #1

    Based on what you know of these two players what do you think will be the openings for the world championship match.

  • #2

    The Petroff is just another opening... like any else.

    Boris is also an authority on the Najdorf, where Anand typically plays sharp English attack stuff.

    Gelfand's repertoire has been a bit predictable, but Anand can play pretty much anything, both as White and Black.

    The Slav or the semi-Slav.

  • #4

    Anand used the Grooonfield  and the Cattalllan a lot against Topalov.

  • #5

    The Grooonfeld will not be played against Gelfand, on account of Rb1 in which Gelfand is a self-proclaimed expert.

  • #6

    I really hope there is a Caro-Kann!!

    Maybe there will be a Nimzo. But it will of course, like all modern games, be dominated by the Sicilian.

    i think you,ll see a lot of slavs and siilian nadjorfs

  • #8

    I think you guys have pretty much covered it all...all I have to add would be the English.

    I can't see the Ruy...since Gelfand just loves the Petrof, but I certainly see a lot of Queen's Gambits...and Slav/Semi Slavs.

    Anand's fav is actually the Najdorv...but I think he will be unpredictable.

    Isn't discussion about whether that post was on or off topic also off topic?

    Clean yer taters! Yell

    There is no more pointless a comment than going on and on endlessly about "potateos" and poking fun at the Irish.

    lame

    I'm with VladBGhita. He had a point and @ Andy and Chris, cool down fellas, why do we need all this here. Let's move on. Smile

    I think Anand will play 1 c4

    Do you really think they want someone who calls corri a bitch as a mod?

    I'm sure they don't.

    I'm sure he meant it in the nicest possible way.  As a dog, I'm sure you can understand.

    I really can't believe they'd make VBG a forum mod. He has zero sense of humor and irritates everyone he comes in contact with.

  • #16

    and the endless condescending attitude...I forgot that. The truth doesn't irritate me: You do!  Why don't you just go away and stop hectoring people. The phony erudition and the snotty attitude and passive insults to otherwise harmless people shows a really rotten disposition.

    I seriously doubt that you have any reason to consider anyone else on this planet an Untermensch.

  • #18

    Go to hell you creep.

  • #19

    Wow, what a condescending, narcissistic prick.
