|Aug-14-17|| ||rogge: He's "eccentric, but harmless". You won't believe who wrote that first :)|
|Aug-14-17|| ||tpstar: Congratulations to Maxime Vachier-Lagrave who earned his smart academic education and then won the 2017 Sinquefield Cup thanks to his smart academic education. That was smart.|
Time to write some letters!
|Aug-14-17|| ||chancho: Caruana won Sinquefield in style several years ago,and word on the street was that Carlsen's days as champ were numbered and what happened Psyche! |
Maxime is playing outstanding, yes, but can he be this good in the candidates and the championship match vs Carlsen?
|Aug-14-17|| ||Appaz: <chancho> Oh, this had nohing to do with Caruana or MVL. It's just another obscure candid attack by <tipsy>, caused by his lack of detection of satire and salted with his infantile "threats" of "I know who you are".|
|Aug-14-17|| ||Dr Winston OBoogie: <Appaz: <chancho> Oh, this had nohing to do with Caruana or MVL. It's just another obscure candid attack by <tipsy>, caused by his lack of detection of satire and salted with his infantile "threats" of "I know who you are".>|
<Wesley So and his career were not helped by posting Tipsy Star songs about drinking urine.>
Yeah. His career has been downhill from there!
|Aug-14-17|| ||rogge: "Threatening" to write letters is indeed "eccentric, but harmless", he he :)|
|Aug-14-17|| ||Dr Winston OBoogie: Rogge.. And last seen on the rogoff page screaming https://m.imgur.com/r/HighQualityGi...|
|Aug-14-17|| ||rogge: Ha ha , I actually watched that episode earlier today :)|
|Aug-14-17|| ||Appaz: There are probably no members on cg.com involved in as many different controversies as <tipsy>, but typical for such characters - they have no clue about the reason for this. There are always somebody else to blame.|
|Aug-14-17|| ||tuttifrutty: <you're the @#$%*@!.>|
I agree...Wisdom is the most important thing mankind should possess but tease-star has none of it....Maybe someday...just maybe...
|Aug-14-17|| ||john barleycorn: <chancho: Caruana won Sinquefield in style several years ago ...>|
that is really a phenomenon.
After an outstanding tournament win the winner (not Carlsen) is promoted to the challenger status. Every number 2 in rating is regarded a challenger. Problem is that almost all of the top10 have been a number 2 at a certain time.
Despite what the rainbow posters write we have minimum of 9 challengers.
The next WCC is going to be hold as a simul.
|Aug-15-17|| ||perfidious: Caruana was anointed number one after that smashing win in this event several years ago--his ascent to that spot was regarded as a fait accompli, same as entering this event, a faction proclaimed the end of Carlsen's run at the top a done deal, as So might even overtake him in this version of the Sinquefield.|
Still waiting, a few years on, for Caruana's 'inevitable' takeover; will So have to also stew in the juices of his admirers before staking his post at the summit of Mt Olympus?
|Aug-15-17|| ||tuttifrutty: <<tuttifrutty: <you're the @#$%*@!.> I agree...Wisdom is the most important thing mankind should possess but tease-star has none of it....Maybe someday...just maybe...>>|
<Accidental comedy. He's the only bloke who asks the missus "Does my bum look big in this?".>
Haha...was that the day his bum went psycho?
|Aug-15-17|| ||Dr Winston OBoogie: <Haha...was that the day his bum went psycho? |
LMAO 😂 😂 😂
|Aug-15-17|| ||tpstar: Go Wesley!|
|Aug-15-17|| ||Nina Myers: <tpstar: Go Wesley!> Sinquefield Cup 2018!|
|Aug-16-17|| ||tuttifrutty: Go Wesley!> Sinquefield Cup 2015!- Dead last|
Go Wesley!> Sinquefield Cup 2016! Winner
Go Wesley!> Sinquefield Cup 2017! Dead Last
<Go Wesley!> Sinquefield Cup 2018!__________
Test your IQ... What will the answer be? Can anyone tell me???
|Aug-16-17|| ||tpstar: <Sinquefield Cup 2018> I hope Wesley recovers from jet lag by then!|
|Aug-16-17|| ||bubuli55: < << Aug-14-17 Appaz: There are probably no members on cg.com involved in as many different controversies as <tipsy> >> |
< tipsy > you know the saying. You run into an asshol in the morning, you ran into an asshoe. You run into asholes all day, you're the @#$%*@!. >>>
First deletion in over 5K kibs.
Well, I guess I'll have to be more careful with my words.
|Aug-16-17|| ||zanzibar: <<Sally> |
It took some convincing before they accepted <me was me>.
I am I, might have to put this in the memorable quote forum.
|Aug-17-17|| ||SugarDom: Condolence for the dismal, lackluster and so-so performance.|
Where's Madam Myers?
|Oct-10-17|| ||posoo: W O Z L EY
wat hapened to WUZLINGTON?
Where are da sicufunts!?
I LIKE to hear u now.
LOL wozley bloked me from his page a while ago sumon tell him WATS UP from da old posoo!
|Oct-11-17|| ||wordfunph: A player of true world championship caliber does not go from the top to the very bottom in just a blink of a chess eye. That is more like a sign of severe mental and psychological imbalance.|
|Oct-11-17|| ||Petrosianic: <wordfunph: A player of true world championship caliber does not go from the top to the very bottom in just a blink of a chess eye.>|
Nobody's done that. You're fudging your facts by labeling the 2780's as "the very bottom", when of course it isn't. Also, he was never at "the top", so that's a second fudge.
|Oct-12-17|| ||MadFaqirOfSwat: From tuttifrutty's post maybe it has reference to the last three Sinquefeld cup's results: last-first-last|
