|Apr-08-18|| ||An Englishman: Good Morning: So Black Rook and White Bishop have been tied down to the defense of weak pawns, and White's King hasn't a point of entry. The Black King can't wander away from the defense of the g pawn. Black's Bishop can't try Bg5-e3-f2 because of Rh7-h4. They look well and truly stuck.|
|Apr-08-18|| ||FSR: Now it suddenly looks like Black is in trouble, although the computer as usual says that Black can hold.|
|Apr-08-18|| ||An Englishman: Good Morning: And as I wrote my last post, Black allowed 61.Rg7. Unless I missed something else *yet again,* Vitiugov will sacrifice both c-pawns for the g3 pawn, probably after ...Rd2+ to drive back the King.|

It is so great looking on telly at the pluperfect American courses, especially when "the rain it raineth every day" in Britain.
For Scots and Irish people golf is a very social thing, a Dad might take his son out for a thrash around the links. It is not an elitist thing, despite what it says on the ball.
|Apr-08-18|| ||offramp: Sorry, the ball says Titleist, not elitist.|
|Apr-08-18|| ||ChessHigherCat: When are you guys going discuss the splendid tiger hunting in India, C. almighty! As a pseudo-representative of the cockney crowd, I sez take the bloody g4 pawn I sez!|
|Apr-08-18|| ||BOSTER: White can't take on g4 because after Rg2 and Kf7 the mobility of the white rook is limited.|
|Apr-08-18|| ||offramp: Where are we now? I am up to <Ihrem Ende eilen sie zu,
die so stark in Bestehen sich wähnen>.|
|Apr-08-18|| ||FSR: <ChessHigherCat> On 63.Rxg4 Rd8! intending 64...Kf7 leaves the rook with nowhere to go. Then 64.Rg6 Kf7 65.Rh6?? runs into 65...Bg5+ 0-1.|
|Apr-08-18|| ||FSR: Drawn! Brilliant defense by Vitiugov. <Sob>|
|Apr-08-18|| ||ChessHigherCat: <FSR> Thanks, I didn't analyze it, I was just imitating the cockney crowd. Tayk the bleeeeding pawwwwn!|
|Apr-08-18|| ||chancho: Vitiugov is a pretty strong player.
I hope he gets more invites.
|Apr-08-18|| ||offramp: <chancho: Vitiugov is a pretty strong player.
I hope he gets more invites.>
He has been bloody impressive so far.
|Apr-08-18|| ||ChessHigherCat: <FSR> By the way, do you mean "sob" boohoo or S.O.B.?|
|Apr-08-18|| ||Pedro Fernandez: <<chancho>: Vitiugov is a pretty strong player. I hope he gets more invites.> Hi <chancho>, hi friend! Yes, <penguin> told me about this great player as I didn't know much about him. BTW, with the exchange of rooks the draw now is even easer, IMO. Greetings!|
|Apr-08-18|| ||Pedro Fernandez: Indeed Carlsen was a bit stubborn, but OK!|
|Apr-08-18|| ||Keyser Soze: <pedro> indeed. And he had to be. Was a great chance to catch Faniano. Now he will probably have to win with black pieces|
|Apr-08-18|| ||Keyser Soze: *Fabiano|
|Apr-08-18|| ||fisayo123: With the way the chess world is structured at the moment Vituigov won't get more invites. He's only playing here because he won the open tournament last year.|
|Apr-08-18|| ||Antonio Ernesto: Vitiugov is for me the real hero of this tournament.|
My hope is for his winning tomorrow against Caruana!
Go on Vitiugov!
|Apr-08-18|| ||hoodrobin: <Antonio Ernesto> I would bet on a draw.|
|Apr-08-18|| ||FSR: <ChessHigherCat> I meant <boo hoo>. Can't really call Vitiugov an SOB for defending well, although maybe I should anyway.|
|Apr-08-18|| ||Justin796: Usual suspects is the worst movie ever..the point of a movie is to tell a story...not tell a story made up in someones head..most..overrated p.o.s. movie ever|
|Apr-08-18|| ||Keyser Soze: Vitiugov is one of the strong Russian GMs for quite a while but somehow he is not very regular on those top closed tourneys.|
|Apr-08-18|| ||keypusher: I don’t have any patience for <2014 Carlsen would have won this> posts...but this was disappointing. He got a favorable ending and dissipated his advantage completely over the next nine or so moves, choosing a bad plan. Weird.|
