After watching both play and seeing how similiar their styles are, who do you think is/was the better player, Davy or Kafelnekov? I think they are pretty much tied...what do you think?

PMK is but a pale imitation of the real thing.

Well, I hope nobody uses Kolya's SF performance as a reason, remember Kafelnikov's SF match vs. Hewitt in 2001, one of the most shameful ever.

There are reasons why Davydenko is called the Poor Mans Kafelnikov.

I was there and that was indeed one shameful performance. Kafelnikov might have won like 7 rallies in the entire match.

Yup.

Wonder if Davy will show up in Bejing like the true road warrior he is?

the only question is whether Davy will play any challengers between now and Beijing

This question may be asked only from people who did not see Kafelnikov play at his best.

He will be there.

Yevgeny is one of the most gifted.

Davy doesn't hold a candle, but I do admire his fighting spirit, something Yevgeny lacks sometimes.

Kolya is a very good player but Yevgeny is a good deal better.

Rare, there is consensus on MTF.

Kafelnikov was more talented, but Nikolay is a harder worker and still growing as a player. He could end up very successful, you never know.
