hmm sokolov blundered at last
I think Carlsen's has his nose in front now, with a win against Sokolov. Everybody else on 3½ made draws.
Another day at the office . . .
Grandelius is doing pretty well in the B-section... he has been paired up every round (ie: every game has been against a higher-rated opponent) and he has a 50% score... a performance rating 50 points higher than his published rating. He lost today (round-6), but his round-5 game was pretty spectacular.
Grandelius has excellent theoretical knowledge, but I am no fan of his playing style. Today he wasn't able to get something out of the coffehouse play that Arkadi decided to throw at him, and in the end he made a childish blunder, in an equal position.
Richard Rapport is playing really great in the B tournament, my guess is that he will be the next 2700+ big name.
Oh, and that old fart, Jan Timman (aged no less than 62) is doing remarkably well- congrats!
3 months ago they played a game. That's what this topic is about.
But now there is an upcoming world championship match between the two. That will take place in November, 7 months from now.
...a storm is coming...
Still how much time left for the game to start?? Anybody?
