Dec-14-12  RookFile: This is an odd game. Rogoff would be the first to say that if he was in his prime, he would have no business even playing Carlsen. I wonder how this game even happened.

  Jim Bartle: You'll love this, RF. I think it was at George Soros' house.
Dec-15-12  RookFile: As long as Barney Frank wasn't there, I'm ok with it.
Aug-01-13  GumboGambit: Good showing by Rogoff, brushing off the rust. Its funny that the article mentioned the blitz clock was not working properly. Kind of like the US economy.

Dec-26-13  Degatz1971: Rogoff had not played for more than 30 years. At his comeback here he achieved a draw against the future world champion and had chances to get even more. Ok, it was "only" a blitz game, but: Chapeau !
