  HeMateMe: Kaz won one of those FIDE world championship tournaments about 15 years ago, didn't he? I think there were three FIDE yearly champions: Kaz, Pono and another fellow who was probably top 25 at the time, but not much higher than that.
Oct-26-17  jphamlore: Why didn't Inarkiev against MVL's Sicilian Najdorf at least probe whether 6. .. ♘g4 was a de facto draw offer?

E Inarkiev vs M Vachier-Lagrave, 2017

Nov-11-17  waustad: This week should see some very lopsided scores. One of the better matchups is Bremen vs Hamburg, where on every board Bremen has a slightly higher rated player, but they are all close.

<HeHateMe> Alexander Khalifman is the person you were thinking of as the other FIDE champ.

  Tabanus: Umm.. 16 teams, each team with 8 players each round, 15 rounds. That's 8 x 8 x 15 = 960 games when finished.

And 8 x 8 x 4 = 256, so CG has all games so far.

Nov-19-17  waustad: As usual I'll put in a link to the German Frauenbundesliga site. Some travelling partners have played already and some haven't so the cross table doesn't really tell who is leading that well.
Jan-02-18  waustad: FYI, many games that are hard to find from the FBL are on One needs to know how they spell names, but if you can spell one participant, the tournament becomes available.
Feb-04-18  waustad: Baden and Solingen have each tied a match, so they are tied for the lead with 15 MP, though Baden has a lead in game points. They play each other on February 25th.
Feb-04-18  waustad: Looking at the chess-results site, I noticed that Dragnev has played all GMs and has a performance rating over 2600. Perhaps he'll get the norm that he just missed in Gibraltar to cinch the GM title.

  whiteshark: <Tabanus: And 8 x 8 x 4 = 256, so CG has all games so far.> Now it's 8 x 8 x 8 = 512 ;)
Feb-25-18  waustad: Solingen beat Baden today, 4.5 - 3.5 with the only decisive game being LíAmiís victory over Naiditsch.
Mar-11-18  waustad: With today's loss by Solingen against SV 1930 Hockenheim, Baden Baden has retaken the lead, having more game points than Solingen. The Baden vs Hockenheim match on April 29th may decide the winner.

  whiteshark: <waustad: The Baden vs Hockenheim match on April 29th may decide the winner.> Baden won with 5:3. Today and tomorrow are the final rounds in Berlin.

Baden and Solingen both have 23 team points and Solingen is only one (1) board point ahead, but with tougher opponents (vs no 6+8) compared to for Baden (no. 10+13).

  whiteshark: I see in the playing venue there's also the final of the German School Chess Championship u16 underway.

It's great for the kids to see their idols playing the very next table.
