Kramnik does not flinch

[lang_nl]Opnieuw was het Topalov die met een theoretisch nieuwtje kwam vandaag, die hem inderdaad wat voordeel opleverde. Maar Kramnik wist langzaam maar zeker te equalizen door simpelweg zijn stukken op optimale velden te plaatsen, terwijl Topalov misschien iets te voorzichtig speelde vandaag.[/lang_nl][lang_en]It was Topalov again who came with a theoretical novelty today, which indeed gave hem some opening advantage. But Kramnik slowly but surely equalised just by putting his pieces on optimal positions, while Topalov probably played a bit too conservatively today.[/lang_en]

[lang_nl]Topalov-Kramnik
WK-match (04), 2006

Voor zet 40 had Topalov een paar keer de mogelijkheid e3-e4 te spelen. Susan Polgar vroeg Yasser Seirawan: "Yasser, do you think Topalov would be taking more chances with a move like e4 before if he did not lose the first 2 games?" Seirawans antwoord was: "I'm SURE that your confidance get's zapped by the two losses.... Without those losses, Topalov would have probably gotten in e4 by now."

Wat me hierop brengt: GM Susan Polgar geeft uitstekend online commentaar op haar blog; IM Malcolm Pein doet hetzelfde voor TWIC, GM Inarkievs?Ǭ†opmerkingen op de?Ǭ†offici?ɬ´le site zijn PGN-files om te downloaden en Seirawan doet zijn job voor Playchess (Chessbase dus) met video's maar daar moet je voor betalen.?Ǭ†Zetten en tekst kunnen wel gratis bekeken worden.?Ǭ†ICC heeft natuurlijk ook live coverage maar ik weet niet zeker of ze ook commentaar hebben.

Wch match (04), 2006

Before move 40 Topalov could have played e3-e4 a few times.?Ǭ†Susan Polgar asked Yasser Seirawan: "Yasser, do you think Topalov would be taking more chances with a move like e4 before if he did not lose the first 2 games?" Seirawan's answer was: "I'm SURE that your confidance get's zapped by the two losses.... Without those losses, Topalov would have probably gotten in e4 by now."

Which brings me to this: GM Susan Polgar gives excellent online commentary on her blog; IM Malcolm Pein does the same for TWIC, GM Inarkiev's?Ǭ†remarks at the official site are PGN-files to download and Seirawan does his job for Playchess (Chessbase that is) with videos but for this you have to pay. Moves and text can be?Ǭ†viewed for free.?Ǭ†ICC also has live coverage but I'm not sure if they do commentary.

ICC geeft ook commentaar bij de partijen. Vandaag waren het IM Bill Paschall and IM Dr. Danny Kopec. Ze zijn te horen via chessfm (onderdeel van ICC: www.chessclub.com/chessfm). Tegenwoordig alleen te beluisteren voor leden. Daarnaast kibitzen veel titelhouders hun visie mbt de partij op de server.

En Sakaevs commentaar op e3-e5.com schijnt ook goed te zijn.

Susan is spamming audience on ICC with her link... ICC had radio coverage with IM Paschall and IM Kopec, WCN had audio broadcast with GM Mikhalevski
