A few of us play our guts out to win a game others appear to just give up when position is difficult.
In past I have had difficult positions when most thought I was lost but due to a lot of work managed to find drawing position.

Ref this game.

Another game I drew by the skin of my teeth due to lazy opening play by me.

And a couple of things to note from that game.

It has been noted a few times the lack of commentary in this years event. I did notice the amount of commentary that was in that game. I don't think that is a coincidence. People are not going to comment much on games where they feel like one or both of the players are not trying that hard in the game.

Secondly, comments by Salvador :sad:

It all seemed more fun then,dont understand why players are reluctant to comment on various games.(exclude Matt on this).:smile:

I think I posted this before, I'm always weary of giving to much away in my comments which may influence the game.

Yes Barnard is sadly missed in his lively comments on games,but he will live on like all good chess players who enriched the game.
