|Oct-28-18|| ||PhilFeeley: Yes, stronger opponents, beating Rapport and drawing Kramnik, Nakamura and MVL.|
|Oct-28-18|| ||virginmind: Deac drew with black against Aronian.|
|Oct-28-18|| ||Dionysius1: Fair enough. I'm rooting for Gawain Jones. No losses and beat Aronian. Playing above his grading. And I like the Welsh.|
|Oct-28-18|| ||Marmot PFL: Xiong is a pawn ahead but I don't see an easy win if Jones keeps the queens on.|
|Oct-28-18|| ||PhilFeeley: I agree Jones deserves a good finish. I guess not everyone can get it.|
Draw on board 1. I guess we're headed for a playoff.
|Oct-28-18|| ||Dionysius1: Ah well. A draw it was in the end. Not a very satisfying result for Jones or Xiong I expect.|
|Oct-28-18|| ||PhilFeeley: What's with the spate of non-castling? Is this a new secret strategy?|
|Oct-28-18|| ||MissScarlett: I blame the malinfluence of the overrated Pillsbury.|
<Hazz>, if you're reading this....I'm joking, I'm joking.....jeez...lol
|Oct-28-18|| ||PhilFeeley: No rapids in the playoff, just blitz. Looking forward to it.|
|Oct-28-18|| ||Boomie: <PhilFeeley: No rapids in the playoff, just blitz. Looking forward to it.>|
Could be a while. Naka's game might go over 100 moves.
|Oct-28-18|| ||Boomie: Eljanov resigned. Now Kosteniuk is mopping up against a guy who apparently won't resign. The playoff whould start within the hour.|
|Oct-28-18|| ||Boomie: And they're off...It's a King's Gambit, Fianchetto line.|
|Oct-28-18|| ||sonia91: <a guy who apparently won't resign> I would have played on too in a B vs R ending|
|Oct-28-18|| ||Boomie: Rado draws first blood. The 2nd game is a Sicilian.|
|Oct-28-18|| ||Boomie: Arkady unleashed a piece sac and is dominating.|
|Oct-28-18|| ||Boomie: Time for Armor Get It On. Rado has white.|
|Oct-28-18|| ||siamesedream: Congratulations to <GM Radosław Wojtaszek> and his wife <IM Alina Kashlinskaya> for winning Isle of Man 2018!|
|Oct-28-18|| ||PhilFeeley: Arkady played a risky King's Indian when all he needed was a draw. It backfired. Congratulations to Radoslaw and his wife Alina for making it a perfect family affair.|
|Oct-28-18|| ||sonia91: Many congratulations to the couple!
Alina also achieved a GM norm, as her performance is 2705: http://chess-results.com/tnr385685....
|Oct-28-18|| ||sonia91: Speaking of GM norms, poor Semyon Lomasov (second highest-finishing non-GM, behind Kashlinskaya) narrowly missed it at a 2599 performance: http://chess-results.com/tnr385685....|
|Oct-28-18|| ||morfishine: Great showing by GJones|
|Oct-28-18|| ||JimNorCal: Also, great showing by young Jeffery Xiong.|
|Oct-29-18|| ||PhilFeeley: The look on Kosteniuk's face! It says, "Bozo should have resigned 50 moves ago."|
|Oct-29-18|| ||0ZeR0: Well done, Wojtaszek and Kashlinskaya. Sto lat!|
|Oct-30-18|| ||malt: Well done Wojtaszek,
I was mainly watching the Grischuk v M Vachier-Lagrave game in the final round.
