Extractions: I suppose Joe Gallagher thought there was little to play for, but an 8 move draw was most disappointing. There are only 45 games and this meant 2% of the tournament was non-chess. The draw between Mark Hebden and Pentala Harikrishna was a fair one. The other three games went somewhat longer. Krishnan said he was winning but went wrong on the 34th move when he should have guarded against a sharp check which he overlooked. Peter Wells nearly went wrong in the first time scramble against Nicholas Pert. However, all it meant was that the game was prolonged. Irina provided us with the longest game of the whole congress. She was once again ground down in the endgame due to an accretion of small advantages. That game continued even beyond the bishop, knight and king against bare king endgame between Irina Tetenkina and Wu Li. The lad defended, she found the win, but too slowly. He claimed a win by the 50 move rule when she had mate in one. CHALLENGERS Thus the Macedonian gained a grandmaster norm. Heather Richards won with Black in the last round against Ed Formanek (USA) who first started playing in the Challengers in about 1970, although it is many years since he played here. Thus Heather secured her final woman international master result, over-scoring the requirement substantially.

Extractions: Irina Krush December 24 - ) is an American chess player. Born in Odessa USSR (now in Ukraine ), she is widely known for her series of chess training videos, the "Krushing Attacks" series. Krush gained a measure of fame both inside and outside chess circles during the well-publicized "Kasparov versus The World" chess competition in 1999. Garry Kasparov played the white pieces and the Internet public voted on moves for the black pieces, guided by the recommendations of Krush and three other young chess experts. On the tenth move, Krush suggested a stunning novelty, for which the World Team voted. Kasparov said later that he lost control of the game at that point, and wasn't sure whether he was winning or losing. In addition to discovering a new move, Krush displayed great patience, tact, and generosity while participating in the bulletin board discussion of the game. Due to her social skill and tireless work on behalf of the World Team, she gradually became the focus of all the team's analytical efforts. The analysis tree she maintained gained considerable authority, and the recommendations therein were chosen by the team for more than twenty consecutive moves. Even grandmasters rated considerably higher than her began making primary reference to her analysis tree. Thanks to Krush's efforts, the team worked in a more coordinated fashion than in any Internet game before or since. Unfortunately, on the 58th move, her recommendation was inexplicably delayed from appearing on the

Extractions: The link to this article was sent to me by Ed Seid, Global Chess Server admin (not sure if this is Ed's title or if this is part of the name of the website), on January 30, 2002. Thanks, Ed! Late one chilly Autumn evening, a cluster of men at the venerable Marshall Chess Club in the Village are playing speed chess, trying not to seem anxious, looking for any excuse not to play Irina Krush. A 17-year-old self-described 'chess nut' and internationally recognized master, Krush is expected to play that night against a dozen players in a simultaneous exhibition. 'I would sign up to play her," says club manager Larry Tamarkin, "but I don't want to embarrass myself any more than I have to." The collective fear of Krush is not altogether unfounded. She admits that her talent for the game can put people off. "It's gotten so that when I meet people now, I don't even tell them what I do," Krush explains. "More than 50 percent of my life is playing chess. So to leave that out when I meet someone, well, that's a big part of me to leave out." Just a year ago Krush became the youngest female international master. In 1999, she and three other young players faced off against three-time world chess champion Gary Kasparov in a match followed by thousands around the world. Though the official title of the Internet tournament was "Kasparov v. The World," the match was quickly dubbed "Kasparov v. Krush," because she so dominated the play. In 1998, at the age of 14, she became the youngest woman ever to win the U.S. Women's Chess Championship.

They even released pairings for the first round (Excel format). You can't expect too many upsets on the first 20 boards, which are mostly devoid of GM vs GM play, but in a two-game mini-match with a fast time control we'll probably have a few anyway. I still remember the look on Frenchman Olivier Touzane's 2368-rated face when he beat Vishy Anand with black in the first game of his round one match in the last FIDE KO in Moscow, 2001. (That's him on that very day on the left. The arm around him belongs to his fellow French representative Vlady Tkachiev.) It was a fun but short-lived celebration as Anand wiped him out the next day and then won the rapid tiebreak. Leko also lost a first-round game, to Watu Kobese. Getting back to the Libya pairings, only the Kazaks have the bittersweet certain knowledge that one of their three representatives will be eliminated and one will make it to the second round. Amazingly with 19 Russians in the field, none will meet in the first round.

Commentary by IM Greg Shahade We tied our record of 18 players in the Tuesday Night Masters. We had three new players this week as well. The strongest of them was GM Alex Wojtkiewicz (no offense Gregory and Woody), who has been missing from the New York chess scene since enrolling in UMBC. The other two newcomers played in my last US Junior Closed Championship. They were none other than Gregory Braylovsky and Shearwood (Woody) McClelland. Also one of our regulars, Lev Milman ,was absent this week as he is going to the Pan Ams in Argentina. Lets wish him the best of luck, if he can win that he gets an automatic bid into the WORLD JUNIOR championships. Below is the list of players for this week GM Igor Novikov ROUND 1 Things went as expected on the top boards, as all of the GMs won. On the lower boards things were not so easy, as a few of the stronger players were nicked for draws. Irina Krush, despite her new hairstyle, had the same result as she did the last time she played a draw with Furdzik. Privman was able to defend a difficult position and get a draw with Lapshun. The biggest surprise was the qualifier, Ervin Matthew, scoring the draw against Justin Sarkar.

Extractions: Chess players around the globe have accused Microsoft of ruining an internet game between Russian grandmaster Garry Kasparov and the rest of the world. They say the company messed up a move they posted on a special website where the world champion was taking on all comers. The participants say the mistake cost them at least a highly-respectable draw and may even have denied them victory. But Microsoft rejects criticism of the way it has managed the four-month-long Kasparov vs the World game, saying the cyberclash has been conducted within the rules. In the game, which started on 21 June, Kasparov holds the white pieces and makes a move every other day. The World plays with black and its pieces are moved on the basis of a vote by internet users. They are offered a range of options posted on the Microsoft site by several young chess experts, who also receive suggestions from net surfers. The row centres on move 58. One of the options, proposed by 15-year-old US women's chess champion Irina Krush, did not appear, because she had server problems when posting the move by e-mail. Consequently, internet users could not vote for her suggestion and chose what turned out to be an inferior option.

For the last four months, chess addicts and duffers worldwide have engaged in a struggle to beat the world's top chess player, Garry Kasparov, in the ongoing chess game Kasparov vs. the World, presented by Microsoft's Gaming Zone. Every two days, Kasparov, playing White, makes a move. Then, chess players who have signed up with MSN get to vote on an answering move. On each turn, "the World" makes the move that gets the most votes from the chess players who've signed up with MSN. (According to Microsoft, 6,000 to 10,000 players vote on a typical turn.)
