Sep-28-17  jphamlore: That wasn't mere "sportswear" Ding Liren was wearing, especially the sport jackets. I suspect those were the jackets worn when China won two of its biggest events with Ding Liren on the open team: The 2014 Olympiad and the 2017 FIDE World Team Championship. Ding Liren was representing China with pride.
Sep-28-17  sonia91: <jphamlore: [...] China won two of its biggest events with Ding Liren on the open team: The 2014 Olympiad and the 2017 FIDE World Team Championship.> China first won the World Team Championship in 2015.
Sep-28-17  k009ris: Just to clarify:I don't blame the players for poor quality chess games, It's the organizers who impose short time controls, as they want to wrap up their events on time. But I think we all lose when the artistic element in chess becomes the least important.And take a look at the games from the last world championship:boring as hell, then a mistakes in rapid games ... But the worst idea I think is deciding top chess events by "armageddon" blitz, stupidest think I've ever heard of.Maybe they should try mixing classical chess and Fischerrandom in tie breaks..

  WannaBe: I don't understand how short(er) time controls (which it really is not) affects finishing the event 'on time'.

One game a day, third day for tie-break.

How would (longer/shorter) time control affect the finish of the event? Would a game require 26 hours to finish?

Time control was 90 minutes for 40-moves and 30 minutes (each move +30s)

40 moves + 30s per move would give you 90 minutes + 20 minutes = 110 minutes, it's only 10 minutes less than 2 hours per side.

Longest game was 130 moves which works out to be 3 hours and 5 minutes, I doubt both players sat there for 6 hours and 10 minutes. Probably plenty of time left on the clock when the game ended.

One of the shorter game was 7 moves. (Maybe you can blame the organizers for this game, too.)

  perfidious: <sirgormless: I'd love to see the guys screaming "blunderfest" give live commentary on a GM game with no engine help for a 2600+ GM audience. I'd pay to watch the GMs struggle to keep gfrom laughing at the poor fool who thought he could tell them what's going on without deep and mostly concrete justification.>

This once, we are in complete agreement--that would doubtless prove highly amusing.

Sep-28-17  The Kings Domain: Imagine if Kovalyov made it to the finals and won. The tournament was a farce.
Sep-28-17  qkxwsm: funny how all aronian lost rating in all three categories despite winning the tournament
Sep-29-17  MadFaqirOfSwat: Better than losing points and not winning
Sep-30-17  Sally Simpson: My take on the event.

  WorstPlayerEver: <Of course White did not play 1. Qxb6 stalemate but 1.Qa6+ 1-0.>

<Sally> It's Qxb3

Sep-30-17  Sally Simpson: I was wondering when someone would notice that.

(OOPS!)

Thanks W.P.E. corrected.

at least 1 (one) reader ...

Oct-01-17  Sally Simpson: Hi J.B.

:)

My one reader. I love him. It's taken him over 700 reads since Thursday to spot my...ahem... deliberate mistake. He's slacking.

I've been told some scan it quickly to make sure I have not panned one of their games or exposed their opening trap.

One guy there has pulled off the Blackburne Shilling trap Muhlock vs B Kostic, 1911 over 100 times! You can imagine the message I got when I warned everyone.

I also advise falling for the trap with this line.

F Adeyemi vs Z Ahmadov, 2008

That was my 257th one. (I get paid...so is it a blog or column?) It's meant to keep me out of mischief on here and the other handful of other sites I haunt....but somehow it has not.

I always seem to be to in S*** with someone, the only thing that varies is the depth.

Oct-02-17  Absentee: And why is he congratulating Carlsen on the World Cup page? Is he mocking the world champion?

  MissScarlett: Nobody can say Azmai looks like a gypsy. That's a nice whistle.
Oct-03-17  Chessinfinite: From the Guardian news -
"Theresa May said the UK could not understand US gun laws.".

..as has every other leader in puzzlement.

  Petrosianic: <JustAnotherMaster: the GREATEST just one [sic] his 29th SUPER Tournament.......>

Isle of Man was not a Super Tournament.

And Karpov won over 150 International Tournaments, so Carlsen still has a way to go.
