Nov-25-11  14DogKnight: Now that FIDE will begin ratings lists for Rapid and Blitz games, Nakamura can crack the Top Five...maybe. But I think his only chance to be World Number One is if they rate Bullet chess.
Nov-25-11  Karnatakiaditya: <ulhumbrus> He probably means 'Bishops of opposite color'.
Nov-25-11  firebyrd: BTW, ChessBase is really on the ball, with, headlined: "Tal Memorial R9 – Aronian and Carlsen share first", and already reporting Nepo-Aronian 1/2-1/2
Nov-25-11  Everett: Bishops Of Opposite Color

  SteinitzLives: Whites' K can try to move to the Q side, but I just don't think it will make a difference.
Nov-25-11  Everett: <First TB is apparantly number of black games, and Carlsen has 5 to Aronian's 4.>

And what were the results for white and black in this tourney?

Nov-25-11  Ulhumbrus: <Everett> <Karnatakiaditya > Thx. I thought that it might mean some chess computer or chess club or something
Nov-25-11  Strongest Force: Maybe Nak should quit Kaspy and take Poker lessons from Ylon...and maybe I can get a finders fee :)
Nov-25-11  Everett: I count 3 wins for white, 6 for black. Hmm....
Nov-25-11  Ulhumbrus: The move 70 Bd7 may have let slip any remaining winning chances. In order to have winning chances Nepomniachtchi had to take the risk earlier of advancing either the f pawn or the b pawn

  Peligroso Patzer: < ... what were the results for white and black in this tourney?>

Interestingly, of 10 decisive games so far, no fewer than 6 were won by Black (including three 0-1 results in the third round).

  SteinitzLives: If Naka sells out to Kaspy (doing absolutely everything he suggests, without push back) he will become a better player (on chess training practice and life improvements alone) not to mention increasing actual chess knowledge.
Nov-25-11  Everett: Choosing poker over chess may be practical, but I sense any spiritual growth in either may only reside in the latter. Then again, when making a living on it, one tends to get lots more practical of course.

  Peligroso Patzer: <Everett> Svidler won today with White, making it four White wins over the course of the event.
Nov-25-11  Ulhumbrus: Does Ian Nepomniachtchi have any Scottish relatives?
Premium Chessgames Member
  SteinitzLives: No players has won two games with black.
Premium Chessgames Member
  SteinitzLives: At last, the R and P ending!
Nov-25-11  Everett: <PP> thank you for the correction! He beat Kramnik?
Premium Chessgames Member
  whiteshark: All ♖endgames are draw
Premium Chessgames Member
  SteinitzLives: Ian has become a very popular name in many cultures now. (maybe it started when people began to Google 007 movies).
Premium Chessgames Member
  Peligroso Patzer: <Everett> Kramnik, already somewhat worse and low on time, blundered on moves 35 and 36 and lost today.
Nov-25-11  Everett: A credit to both players. Aronian was pushed to the edge here by Nepo.
Premium Chessgames Member
  SteinitzLives: All done, good tourney for Aronian, and Nepo.
Nov-25-11  Everett: <    Peligroso Patzer: <Everett> Kramnik, already somewhat worse and low on time, blundered on moves 35 and 36 and lost today.>

Thank you. On a different thread I asked if you felt there was some especially good endgame books out there, since you seem to have a keen interest I this part of the game. Any suggestions would be much appreciated!

  chancho: Naka turns 24 in early December.

Even with all the Gazza lessons, it might not make a difference.

Naka would have to focus in ways that we already know are not to his liking.

Garry was/is so fanatical in his approach...
