I have just added a few more comments about the first round, and also wrote more detailed thoughts about the 2nd round. Welcome to read. :)

I don't expect gambling style from that round, especially because Estonian players usually do not gamble in important games, and Russian players do not dare to gamble against Estonia because the Estonian players know the answers to their tricks.

Hmm. Me too. I didn't expect gambling style too. Because Russian players usually do not gamble in important games, and Estonian players do not dare to gamble against Russia because Russian players know the answers to their tricks.

Maybe this one is more polit, how do you think? (-;

Maybe you can look at the history of TWC games, especially TWC 2004, then you know what I mean. You can see so many i6 opening tricks, etc. Our team was back them watching with pain how the Russian team collected easy points from those gambling variants as white against other teams, while the whole our team knew the answers to those variants. But when they played against us, they chose serious variants.

Yes, Ando, i will try to forget that i am so stupid, at least till the end of TWC :). I cant explain why i didnt see so easy defence with almost  40 sec left...

Ants, I am confident Estonia will become the World Champion!! You deserve this title more than anyone! Especially after so many years you have contributed to renju study and development!
Ando Meritee2008-05-01 01:42:05
And you have a great tie-break coefficient advantage - in case of equal points, Estonia wins the tournament.

unfortunately we didnt had no theory book about that 4th move..and I wasted my time studying other "halyava" variations...I just hoped that Wu Di played good fifth moves in the game against Ishitani..but fortunately the 8th move transisted  to i9...and I already lost in this position against Iio in A-tournament so of course i knew the win there now:D..I think the best 8th move was i8 and then my plan was to take k6 point and try to play positionally.
Ando Meritee2008-05-01 20:32:03
Andry you did well, I had confidence in you that you would come out from this difficult situation!! Well done!
