Linares: a theatre of one actor

Eight rounds of the tournament with the participation of top players of the world made it clear that at the moment Kasparov has no worthy rivals. Having spared the feelings of J. Polgar, the 13th World Champion beats men without mercy. His score is +4 now. It can be envied only as nobody can emulate him. Polgar with her respectable 50% goes second. All the others are on the same level, each of them having lost one game to Kasparov. The rest two rounds wonít change anything considerably. The plot of the event is quite tiresome. No sensations, no intrigue. Perhaps a knock out tournament in Linares would be more interesting for amateurs. Why not invite more people there? Kasparov proves only that water is wet. The rest of the show is absolutely colourless. The young Grischuk performs not astonishingly, however well. He even defeated Karpov. What else can I report to you Ė I donít know. They will write about Kasparov without me, and other participants are no more than a guard of honour for the greatest champion on earth.
