|Oct-13-17|| ||PhilFeeley: Globus should have won at least one of their games, but they were all draws. Are they starting to fade? Losing their enthusiasm for this event? Their 6th round pairing should be even more difficult.|
|Oct-13-17|| ||PhilFeeley: More draws on the top boards today.|
|Oct-13-17|| ||PhilFeeley: I take that back. Not looking good for white on board 6.|
|Oct-13-17|| ||Sokrates: Thanks for the response, <AK>. Appreciated!|
|Oct-13-17|| ||ajile: Seems to be an increase in Black openings featuring the Pirc-Robatsch-Modern complexes. With decent results for Black which is interesting.|
Alternatively other secondary favorites (mine) like Benoni-Dutch and QID seem to be less popular and less effective.
|Oct-13-17|| ||BOSTER: < Sokrates>:<whether MVL will become a participant or not>.
If we look at a GP series of four chess tour as a game, I'd say that MVL and Radjabov have a good pos, because they are still in the game.|
|Oct-13-17|| ||nok: even Naka has a chance, provided Carlsen doesn't play and his rivals bomb.|
|Oct-14-17|| ||PhilFeeley: Final round: Kramnik gets Inarkiev. Globus will have a hard time winning this overall, especially if Odlar Yurdu does well against AVE Novı Bor. If Globus wins and Odlar Yurdu loses, then Globus wins the event. But if Odlar Yurdu ties, then they tie Globus for the overall ranking. I don't know who wins then.|
|Oct-14-17|| ||PhilFeeley: BTW, they haven't met frequently, but still:
<Classical games: Vladimir Kramnik beat Ernesto Inarkiev 3 to 0.
Including rapid/exhibition games: Vladimir Kramnik beat Ernesto Inarkiev 4 to 0, with 1 draw.
Only rapid/exhibition games: Vladimir Kramnik beat Ernesto Inarkiev 1 to 0, with 1 draw.>
|Oct-14-17|| ||PhilFeeley: Drawish opening, the English. Maybe Kramnik is tired of the whole thing.|
|Oct-14-17|| ||Sokrates: Thanks, <BOSTER>. I'd say a candidate without MVL wouldn't be right. He is one of the very VERY few who could muster a tough challenge for the Norwegian, perhaps even THE one with the best prospects. In comparison with his competitors I am not sure he is the best - Aronian, Caruana, So, Mamedyarov etc. are equally strong on a good day, but relatively to Carlsen, I think he may be the fittest. |
Gentlemen, what is your opinion?
|Oct-14-17|| ||Schwartz: Aronian or Caruana looks like a fun match. MVL, Kramnik, Ivanchuk also could be good matches.|
|Oct-14-17|| ||jphamlore: Where did Karjakin go wrong as Black defending a Nimzo-Indian versus Grachev? Is he already in big trouble once the rooks get exchanged off and he's left with bishop and knight versus the two bishops?|
|Oct-15-17|| ||whiteshark: <jphamlore> check COMPUTER ANNOTATED SCORE OF THIS GAME
B Grachev vs Karjakin, 2017 ;)|
|Oct-15-17|| ||LameJokes55: <Sokrates:Gentlemen, what is your opinion?>|
I agree with you about MVL. He is a player with all-round capabilities. He has risen and stayed into top 5. He is one of those, who can give Carlsen a run for his money.
The trouble is, his qualification is not certain for the candidates.
Among Shak, Grischuk, MVL and Radjabov; only two can qualify. The first three are my favorite players. I don't mind any two of them getting through.
However, no one would begrudge Radjabov his place if gets through on merit.
Candidates is one hell of a tough tournament. I hope, whoever gets through makes World Championship a riveting and captivating spectacle.
|Oct-15-17|| ||sonia91: Podium:
1. Globus, RUS
2. Alkaloid, MKD (2016 champions)
3. Odlar Yurdu, AZE
|Oct-15-17|| ||HeMateMe: I love this photo
|Oct-18-17|| ||Sokrates: Thanks, <sonia91> for the result. Which, I am sorry to say, cannot ignite my enthusiasm, since neither of these club names form an identity in my mind. My bad but am I the only one who cannot get exited by club chess tournaments?|
|Oct-18-17|| ||WorstPlayerEver: Mercenaries.|
|Oct-18-17|| ||SandyJames: Hi friends, can anyone link me to a recent game by Aronian where he played Rh4 early in the opening and won. Thank you!|
|Oct-18-17|| ||moronovich: <SandyJames: Hi friends, can anyone link me to a recent game by Aronian where he played Rh4 early in the opening and won. Thank you!>|
It was Aronian-Nepomniachtchi,St Louis 2017.
|Oct-18-17|| ||SandyJames: Thank you,|
|Oct-18-17|| ||BOSTER: Aronian with Rh4 in game Aronian vs Navara.2017.|
