|Grand Swiss IoM (2019)|
The FIDE Chess.com Grand Swiss is an 11-round Swiss tournament taking place from 10-21 October 2019 in the COMIS Hotel and Golf Resort near Douglas, Isle of Man. The winner (or highest placed finisher if Carlsen and/or Caruana come out in front) qualifies for the 2020 Candidates Tournament. Tiebreaks, and not a playoff, will decide placings in the event of a tie for first place. The 100 highest rated players from July 2018-June 2019 were invited as well as 17 who qualified through various competitions and wildcards.
Players receive 100 minutes for 40 moves, followed by 50 minutes for 20 moves, then 15 minutes to the end of the game, plus a 30-second increment starting from move one. The total prize fund for the Grand Swiss is $432,500, with $70,000 for first place. (1)

|Oct-15-19|| ||Pedro Fernandez: Of course <AylerKupp>. <diceman> says <it is very likely>, however Magnus has been compromised in some of his games, and Fabiano too! Let's close this question.|
Now I want asking: Who will be the opositor of Caruana on Thursday? Well, he already played vs Hao, but Fabi has a higher rating than Hao, so I think Caruana vs Carlsen. Is this right?
A warm greeting for this couple of great friends.
|Oct-15-19|| ||Pedro Fernandez: Errata: <I want asking sounds horrible>, I believe correct is <I want to ask>. Is this right?|
|Oct-15-19|| ||wtpy: I have nothing against Carlsen, was just pulling for the old man.|
|Oct-15-19|| ||WorstPlayerEver: <Pedro Fernandez>|
It's no use asking me because I am Dutch, although I think it's correct :)
|Oct-15-19|| ||keypusher: < Pedro Fernandez: Errata: <I want asking sounds horrible>, I believe correct is <I want to ask>. Is this right?> Yes, same as Spanish, no? <Quiero preguntar... or Quiero saber...>. But in English <I am wondering...> or just <I wonder...> means more or less the same. <I want asking...> is not something people would say, but if they did, it would mean roughly <Someone should ask me...>. |
Simplest version of the question is <Who is Caruana playing Thursday?> but unfortunately I do not know the answer.
|Oct-15-19|| ||diceman: <keypusher:
<Who is Caruana playing Thursday?>>
Guess that means rest day?
|Oct-15-19|| ||me to play: <Simplest version of the question is <Who is Caruana playing Thursday?> but unfortunately I do not know the answer.> Not sure either, but Danny King was saying that it likely would be Aronian.|
|Oct-15-19|| ||perfidious: <wtpy>, remember the Robert Johnson classic <If I Had Possession Over Judgment Day>?|
<Lawd, the little woman I'm lovin' wouldn't have no right to pray....>
|Oct-15-19|| ||WorstPlayerEver: Results after round 6:
Caruana, Wang 5 pts.
Anton Guijarro, Aronian, Alekseenko, Carlsen, Grischuk, Maghsoodloo, Vitiugov 4.5 pts.
|Oct-15-19|| ||northernfox: <WPE> Thank you for the summary of leaders. I had difficulty with the official website.|
I assume there is a fairly large group of players at 4 pts?
|Oct-15-19|| ||WorstPlayerEver: http://chess-results.com/tnr478041....|
|Oct-15-19|| ||Messiah: I have never ever rooted this heavily for Maghsoodloo. Come on man, you are the best! Open wisely, according to your best preparation, calculate everything properly, be calm and patient, and WIN!|
|Oct-15-19|| ||chancho: Some pairings for round 7:
Grischuk Alexander - Caruana Fabiano
Aronian Levon - Wang Hao
Alekseenko Kiril - Carlsen Magnus
Anton Guijarro David - Vitiugov Nikita
Yu Yangyi - Maghsoodloo Parham
Kryvoruchko Yuriy - Anand Viswanathan
Fedoseev Vladimir - Karjakin Sergey
Shirov Alexei - Wojtaszek Radoslaw
Adhiban B. - Nakamura Hikaru
Jumabayev Rinat - Gelfand Boris
McShane Luke J - Kovalev Vladislav
|Oct-15-19|| ||Messiah: Sorry I meant Alekseenko.|
|Oct-15-19|| ||nok: <I have never ever rooted this heavily for Maghsoodloo. Come on man, you are the best!>|
As you wish. Me, I'll root for Alexeenko.
|Oct-15-19|| ||botvinnik64: What a great tournament with exciting pairings for Round 7 - who said Classical Chess is dead? Open tourneys rule!|
|Oct-15-19|| ||Tal1949: This is like old school chess-excitement on every board. Better than those closed prearranged tournaments!|
|Oct-15-19|| ||csmath: Magnus is black versus Alekseenko on Thursday. |
I really wnated to see Wang Hao versus Magnus as I think Magnus feels he needs to return one inspired ending win to Wang Hao and Wang Hao would not shy away from attacking.
But lets see what Alekseenko can do.
|Oct-15-19|| ||Pedro Fernandez: << diceman>: <keypusher: |
<Who is Caruana playing Thursday?>>
Guess that means rest day?>
Rest day is tomorrow Wednesday.
|Oct-15-19|| ||Pedro Fernandez: Hi <chancho>, I thought in Carlsen vs Caruana since in tie breaks rules first the rating is considered, so by consistency, the two highest ratings are Carlsen and Caruana. So the pairings are sorted? Thanks and greetings my friend!|
|Oct-15-19|| ||keypusher: <Messiah: Sorry I meant Alekseenko.> |
Nobody cares. You're making a fool of yourself in the most boring way possible.
|Oct-15-19|| ||parmetd: Pedro the rules also say the same player can't be floated twice in a row. Carlaen was already floated up last round to play Shirov.|
|Oct-15-19|| ||Pedro Fernandez: Hi <parmetd>, float? this word in Spanish means ``flotar'', i.e. what you do on the water or with a parachute, what has to do ``float'' here? Please, may you explain me? Thanks my friend!|
|Oct-15-19|| ||parmetd: Float is when a player breaks their score group. Floating down would be [Shirov] who did not play another 4/5 scored player. While floating up would be [Carlsen] 3.5/5 who played Shirov who was a higher score.|
I will do my best to explain this in spanish as well.
Es una situación específica en la que no hay suficientes jugadores en el mismo grupo de puntuación. El jugador que juega contra alguien con un puntaje diferente está "flotando."
|Oct-16-19|| ||Sally Simpson: ***
You are correct with float and 'parachute.'
When I was told I had a down float in the 'Grand' 1979 Open Air tournament at Baden-Baden I hired a light aircraft and jumped out at 3,000 feet.
I pulled the rip chord at 900 feet, gently glided into my seat, played 1.e4 and pressed my clock.
The players put down their pens and applauded.
(Eduard Gufeld nicked my parachute, cut it up and sold it as souvenir silk hankies to the tourists....Ah the good old days.)
