  Sneaky: Walk away for two minutes and suddenly the board reduces to heavy artillery.

  OhioChessFan: <Sneaky> no kidding. I spent 5 minutes cleaning out my car and missed more action than I'd sat through the previous 30.
Aug-02-17  Sally Simpson: It's because you swore Not Not.

Never seen the Bxb6 idea. thought sure Rxf6 was coming.

  chancho: Aronian playing like a killah.

I hope he wins the candidates and faces Carlsen.

Their styles would make for some great stuff otb.

  OhioChessFan: Let's see....a Lasker review.....White has better King safety with better Kingside Pawns. Black has 3 Pawn islands, although he has more advanced Pawns and consequently more space. Black owns a couple nice half open files. White's advanced b Pawn really isn't a threat. I'll call this even.

  Marmot PFL: Black recovers the pawn and gets rid of bad bishop and it looks even. white should have tried to keep the knight or bishop.
Aug-02-17  paavoh: @JBC: <Excuse me, but what is the obvious part of it and why so?> Sorry, English is not my native language. I just meant that getting at least a draw is <obviously> any player's wish for a good start. I do not think that a loss would ever qualify as <a good start> at this level.

And only now I see that <beenthere240> explained it much better.

  Sneaky: To retain complexity in the position, remove the rooks. To turn it into a textbook draw, remove the queens.
Aug-02-17  Boomie: Release the Karjakin seems to have a comfortable edge over Sviddled While Rome Burned.

  keypusher: 29.Qb3+ followed by Ra8 looks good to this simple mind.

  keypusher: I guess ...d3 is the answer.
Aug-02-17  Boomie: MVL has a nice thing going against the reigning champ. Plus the champ is getting into time trouble.

Should So lose this game, it will be interesting to see how he is able to shake it off. He has seemed a bit frail psychologically in the past, but has become tougher as he achieved some success. To win a world championship match, you have to be very strong minded. That means you can't let prior games nag at you. You have to forget it and attend to the moment.

  Sneaky: Carlsen has the draw in hand with 33...Qf4+ 34.Kh1 Qf1+ 35.Kh2 Qf4+ etc. I think he might as well take it, there's no winning this position. Too bad he can't play 33...Rg6 it's almost is a forced mate, except for that little detail of Qg8#.

  SirRuthless: An important draw for Carlsen and now his his hunt can begin. Cagey first round jitters should be gone now.

I think a draw is likely. Carlsen tries hard at Sinquefield.>

Astounding prescience!

It was part of a campaign promise made by Humphrey B Hoover:

<"Two acres for every woman, an ass for every man, a gold hunting rifle for pops, two cars in every garage and three eyes on every child. And a wall around the lot which they will pay for themselves.">

He was not elected.

Maybe if he said Mexico was going to pay for the wall, he would have won.
