Nov-10-17  Chizoad: Obviously a blunder in a drawn position, but Topalov was out of time from what I can tell. No increment in these games...

  Domdaniel: All games should have increments now. Sudden death is barbaric.
Nov-10-17  posoo: BARBORIC? NO! da playors have da RITE to SMASH ON until da FLAGING OF AGES.

Da INCRAMENT is acualy VERY CHEAP as it removes da LIGHTENING and SMASHING dat lots of playors hapen to ENJOY!

maybe i am borrobian!

  HeMateMe: the wedge pawn was fatal, even without a back rank attack.

  Domdaniel: <posoo> Oh no, you're worse than borrobian (or even barbarian - supposedly derived from 'bar-bar', which was what strange languages sounded like to the ancient Greeks).

Perhaps sudden death is tartaric ... like the acid of that name?

But in fact what players 'enjoy' is irrelevant, beside the point. Every chess player will suffer in the long run. Yes, even you, <posoo> ... you will be beaten and outmoded just as Carlsen and So will.
