|Jan-24-17|| ||1971: <alexmagnus> That's obviously preferable and more efficient. I couldn't find those find performance ratings though. I figured looking up the formula and calculating them myself would take the same amount of time as simply posting the results, which do paint a clear picture.|
|Jan-24-17|| ||talunanIM: 1971@you like boyz especially Carsen. Go send him a love SMS and I'm sure he wouldn't mind a gay patzer who is an age pensioner since 1971 ;()hehe|
|Jan-24-17|| ||SirRuthless: <1971> I think you need to seek professional help for your affliction.|
|Jan-24-17|| ||1971: I am the professional.|
|Jan-24-17|| ||Eduardo Bermudez: An excellent example of how to defeat the world champion !|

Kind of like the games discussed here:
< keypusher: <SirRuthless: <JohnBoy> He could use his winnings from the 2015 US Championship to pay Saric and Naiditsch to show him how it's done. They seem to have Carlsen under lock and key.>
I'd love to sit in on those training sessions. "You wait for him to sacrifice a bishop, then respond strongly, but get into terrible time trouble and let him get away and wait for him to screw up again. Alternatively, keep an eye out for Bird's Defense.">

|Jan-25-17|| ||yurikvelo: 5 mistakes in a row - not a Carlsen style...
|Jan-25-17|| ||Penguincw: Video analysis of this game: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6a1....|
|Jun-22-17|| ||frogmanjones: This game should be called "Rapport Card"|
|Jun-29-17|| ||offramp: Today's pun is "Rapport Cart" which is based on the phrase "Apple Cart" because here Mr Rapport most egregiously "upsets the apple cart" of world champion Magnus Carlsen.|
In fact the apple cart of Mr Carlsen's position was as upset as one of those apple carts that appear out of nowhere in a James Bond high speed car chase.
|Jun-29-17|| ||WorstPlayerEver: Think Carlsen missed 29. Rb6|
|Jun-29-17|| ||offramp: <offramp: Today's pun is "Rapport Cart"...>|
It has now been changed to "Rapport Card", as <frogmanjones> suggested. A pun on "Report Card".
|Jun-29-17|| ||Eusebius: Surprisingly clear game.
Wonderful how the two connected knights secure White's defence at the end. While Black is not able to resolve his weakness on 8th rank.
|Jun-29-17|| ||WorstPlayerEver: <let's look at all the top players in <2016, Classical, 2700+> Carlsen: +14 -3 =27 | 44 | 62.5%
Kramnik +9 -3 =34 | 46 | 56.5
Nakamura +23 -12 =52 | 87 | 56.3%
So: +8 -2 =39 | 49 | 56.1%
Anand +11 -5 =35 | 51 | 55.8%
Caruana +14 -7 =48 | 69 | 55%
MVL +7 -5 =26 | 38 | 52.6%
Karjakin +9 -7 =48 | 64 | 51.5%
Aronian +8 -9 =40 | 57 | 49.1%
Giri +10 -13 =72 | 95 | 48% >
Interesting. Seems to be the case that Giri and Naka were most active in 2016, when it comes to classical chess. Carlsen least active. Even less active than the 'oldies', Kramnik and Anand.
Sign o the times? Carlsen's classical rating slowly declined since he scored his top rating. Just saying. Is it a coincedence we are drowned in rapid/blitz nowadays?
Take notice; nothing between humans does exactly happen coincedentally.
|Jun-29-17|| ||WorstPlayerEver: PS maybe it's also interesting to notice that when you try to erase something in a text editor, first it goes too slow and then suddenly incredibly fast. |
Most annoying, but you know.. how these things go in the human world: someone programmed the first text editor in 1969 (NB in Hotel California) and the rest is copy&paste+pretty useless additions because people haz work to do: Arbeit macht frei. History.
Voilá, state of minď of development anno 2017; no progress but decline.
|Jun-29-17|| ||Ironmanth: Great game!|
|Jun-29-17|| ||ColeTrane: CG already fixed the pun typo|

|Jul-28-17|| ||Clashero1880: <1971> Sounds like an ass, but he's right|
|Jul-28-17|| ||tuttifrutty: <No, it must have been his claim that Carlsen loses more than anyone else that opened up the world of truth for you. Except he used lifetime records. That includes games from back when all the players were around 9 years old. If you think that's interesting or relevant results, you're more biased than I thought.>|
< I simply set the parameter to 2009>
It's only correct to include lifetime record...setting parameters like year 2009 seems like you pick the time to suit your ideas. That's the truth...no questions asked.
|Jul-28-17|| ||WorstPlayerEver: Lol 22... d3 is positionally such a bad move. It just makes the White LSB strong and vice versa. Gives White an option to play e4-e5. I wonder why I am not the champ ☺|
|Oct-05-17|| ||ZackyMuhammad: Carlsen greatest lose|
|Mar-25-18|| ||Everett: I really like 29.Rb6, a nice puzzle|
|Apr-01-18|| ||mys2: <1971> they are just a bunch of jealousy anw|
|Apr-01-18|| ||ChessHigherCat: <ColeTrane: CG already fixed the pun typo>|
Now all they need to do is fix the pun. There's no double meaning so it's not even a pun at all. <Magnus fails to rapport> would work.
