  SirRuthless: Had black played 36... Rd7 he probably would have won.

Great back and forth game. Black outplayed white in the opening, blew it at the time control and white had a nearly winning edge and proceeded to blow it once the time trouble had ended. Nice to see early novelties in the Makogonov KID at this level.

Aug-11-17  Ulhumbrus: 5 h3 moves a pawn in the opening. It may make it easier for Black to equalize, if it does not actually pass the opening advantage to Black, but if so, Black has to find a way to benefit from the tempo. Nakamura finds an interesting way to make use of the tempo. He attacks White's centre by ...c6 and ...d5 and perhaps gains the upper hand after Caruana goes too far trying to gain the advantage.

Do you even understand the plans for both sides in the King's Indian, and why h3 is often played? You're essentially attempting to offer generic beginner advice to the strongest players in the world, as if you know better than they do. It's laughable.

What's even more laughable is that you've been doing this for so many years and still haven't learned anything.

  perfidious: <Monocle....Do you even understand the plans for both sides in the King's Indian, and why h3 is often played?>

The pearl of wisdom which did it for me was when <uluseless> slagged the Keres Attack when delivering himself of his views on one of the Kasparov-Karpov games; not, of course, that those titans know anything about the game.

<....You're essentially attempting to offer generic beginner advice to the strongest players in the world, as if you know better than they do. It's laughable.>

Risible, but not terribly amusing; he and his insufferable nonsense have long since found their way to iggydumb.

Aug-13-17  Monocle: Ah yes, "disturbing the kingside pawns without necessity", a classic. I'm just amazed that he's still doing it. It takes some dedication to be wrong every day for 10 years.
