Kibitzer's Corner
Jan-28-18  siamesedream: Congratulations to <GM Santosh Gujrathi Vidit> for winning Tata Steel Chess Challengers 2018.
Jan-28-18  John Abraham: with Hou Yifan scoring at the bottom of the table in the Master section and the only two females here, Harika and Olga scoring similarly at the bottom of the table in the Challengers section, it is no small wonder that the ignorant masses continue to discuss the topic of women's chess inferiority on the professional stage.
Jan-28-18  dumbgai: Not a big surprise that 2500 rated women would struggle against 2600-2700 rated men.
Feb-16-18  Everett: Which is why more deserving chess-players should be invited to these events based on ability and results. You know, merit.
