Aronian versus Kramnik

    Smile Good-luck (should work !)

    So, who now thinks that Kramnik deliberately played like a monkey in that first game as a tactical ploy?

    I admired Kramnik today. Iron-psychology. No way could imagine playing that game against all the black-pieces today ! (& it took it's toll on Aronian in the end)

    I unfortunately didn't get to see the game live today (work) but I went through the game after work. The Queen is a very powerful piece, but it was very impressive considering that at one point he was playing against a rook, a knight and a bishop.

    Of course he would disagree; he's far too stupid to understand how big an idiot he is.

    Don't think chocolate pacifies him much...

    It doesn't make any sense at all, monkeys have been banned from competition as they are far too talented.

    I have heard that there are monkeys who have solved chess in another dimension or something.

    I've only heard about how monkeys can now type the complete works of Shakespeare.

    There is a guy on this very site who writes better than Shakespeare. If only we all had honers classes.

    And it only takes them an unimaginable amount of time.

    And I guess they have to be in a room. I don't recall why they can't type in a tree.

    Game four of the K&A match has started a few minutes ago. Aronian is playing white, and we have our second Berlin defence of the Spanish opening. Kramnik is not invincible with that defence. I thought the second game of the match was quite tense when this opening was played, even though it was the only draw thus far.

    We're on move 17, and Houdini evaluates the position as even. Could be a very interesting endgame. I really like endgames lately, so this suites me just fineSmile
