|Mar-20-18|| ||offramp: It's a draw. Amazing. Superb fighting game.|
|Mar-20-18|| ||chessdgc2: Chessgames.com: Thanks for the cast! See you guys Thursday|
|Mar-20-18|| ||enochmeta: These were not "computer lines". fabs has no excuse for missing the play on the f-file that wouldve at least forced the exchange exactly what he'd prepared for and then he just psyched himself out!?|
Anyways, any master, or even expert should've been able to find that, we're not talking about a 20 move line of feints and retreats here.
|Mar-20-18|| ||ChessHigherCat: cocker: 66 Nf8+ Kg8 67 h6! was the last winning line|
I saw that on SF, too, looked like a killer. Caruana must have been exhausted after 6 hours was it?
|Mar-20-18|| ||An Englishman: Good Afternoon: Tough game. Exhaustion must have played a factor over the last 15-20 moves.|
|Mar-20-18|| ||chessgames.com: Thanks to everybody for participating in today's exciting chess fight. |
Please note that tomorrow is a rest day. The players will be back on Thursday, March 22nd, when we feature the critical game between the frontrunners, Mamedyarov-Caruana. We hope to see you then!
|Mar-20-18|| ||MissScarlett: Does anyone else here believe that chess players tune in to each others brainwaves?|
|Mar-20-18|| ||WannaBe: <MissScarlett> That is why, I dress like this at tournaments:|
Probably also why I am no longer allowed in tournaments.
|Mar-20-18|| ||Marmot PFL: <Caruana played well today.
He did everything Carlsen would have done, but more slowly.
At several moments he lacked the time to find the decisive tactical continuation; his opponent had time to defend.

|Mar-20-18|| ||ChessHigherCat: <MissScarlett: Does anyone else here believe that chess players tune in to each others brainwaves?>|
We all knew you were going to say that.
|Mar-20-18|| ||Imran Iskandar: Up to a point, Caruana's play in the endgame was Carlsenesque, but a combination of fatigue and time trouble caused him to miss the three winning chances presented to him.|
|Mar-21-18|| ||RookFile: Complex play. Ding Liren did well to get a draw out of this.|
|Mar-21-18|| ||morfishine: <Marmot PFL> Thanks for the quote. This was a tense and exciting game to watch. I noticed a couple of times Caruana went into what seemed like (at least for him) unusually long "thinks"|
These seemed to coincide with Ding Liren subsequently playing pretty fast. Obviously, Ding was using Caruana's time for his own benefit and was trying to gain more time on the clock
|Mar-21-18|| ||whiteshark: Did the late Bobby Fischer made the 1st move here? https://en.chessbase.com/thumb/71370|
|Mar-21-18|| ||WannaBe: <whiteshark> If the late Bobby converted to d4 =)|
|Mar-21-18|| ||Ulhumbrus: The initial sacrifice 13 Nxd5! is the means by which Caruana makes count his lead in development.|

|Mar-22-18|| ||cro777: China Intellectual Sports Network about Ding Lirenís play in this game:|
"Ding Liren's play is like the Huashan Mountain Trail!"
Mount Huashan (one of Chinaís five Great Mountains) is the most dangerous hiking trail in the world, featuring a death-defying cliff-side mountain climb that brings daring visitors to a tea house 2,160 m (7,087 ft) up on the mountainís southern peak.
On the mountainís southern peak there is a chess pavilion you can relax at:
|Mar-30-18|| ||Domdaniel: Innaresting. The Bogo-Cat - a cross between the Bogo-Indian (with ...Bb4+) and the Catalan (with g3) seems to have become Black's main line against the Catalan. |
When Pogonina played it against the CG 'World' team a few years ago it was still relatively unexplored.
But Pogo drew that game without much difficulty, and recently Black has tended to comfortably equalize in this line.
The arrival of the 'Modern Bogo' - 1.d4 e6 2.c4 Bb4+ - previously known as the Keres or Kangaroo Defence - may also be a factor.
|Mar-30-18|| ||Marmot PFL: <cro777> Awesome trail! Bet more than few turn back before the end.|
|Mar-30-18|| ||Marmot PFL: <When Pogonina played it against the CG 'World' team a few years ago it was still relatively unexplored.>|
She knew it but the team didn't. 1 e4 seems to be usually the best choice in such events as the main lines are more mapped out.
|Mar-30-18|| ||Marmot PFL: While the Chinese government claims nobody has died on the trail, other sources say as many as 100 people die on this trail per year!|
|Mar-30-18|| ||saffuna: I've done four of the ten trails listed. The descriptions are exahggerated. Only the final Half Done climb is really scary.|
|Mar-30-18|| ||Marmot PFL: I figured if it's in the US the trail can't be too dangerous (too much lawsuit exposure) even if it means marring the view with cables and hand rails.|
|Mar-30-18|| ||saffuna: Here's the Half Dome cable. Exposed and very steep.|
But the trail to the base is a normal mountain trail.
