  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!

  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?

Hmmm... psyche!

  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!

  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.

  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.

  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?

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.

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
