|May-29-18|| ||offramp: Thanks, chessgames.com. Karjakin-Carslen has just finished at move 41, so we moved here and it's only on move 17. It looks like an interesting game.|
|May-29-18|| ||ChessHigherCat: g5 looks kind of forced, isn't it?|
|May-29-18|| ||Mateo: I don't know why Black didn't play 17...Rxg4.|
|May-29-18|| ||ChessHigherCat: ChessHigherCat: I guess it wasn't but this way black wins the g pawn.|
|May-29-18|| ||ChessHigherCat: Mateo: Uncle StockFish says 1) +0.41 (24 ply) 17...Rxg4 18.Ng5 Bxg5 19.hxg5 Be4 20.Qe2 Bf5 21.Re3 Rxg5 22.Re1 h6 23.f4 Rg6|
|May-29-18|| ||Count Wedgemore: White will probably lose the f-pawn also, which looks terribly weak. I rate this position as fairly equal.|
|May-29-18|| ||ChessHigherCat: They both have serious back-rank weaknesses but white's look worse for some reason|
|May-29-18|| ||ChessHigherCat: i think Rb8 Rxa7? Bxc3|
|May-29-18|| ||An Englishman: Good Evening: The simplification hasn't simplified the problems both players face. I would hate to have either side of this game. The isolated pawns give both players a convenient excuse for a quick draw, e.g., 21...Rf4; 22.Rc5,Rc8; 23.Ra5,Ra8 et cetera.|
|May-29-18|| ||ChessHigherCat: Count Wedgmore was right about the f'g f-pawn.|
|May-29-18|| ||Mateo: 21.Ra5 is also a mysterious move at least for me. For some mysterious reason, he allows Black to catch the 'f' pawn.|
|May-29-18|| ||BOSTER: White and black rooks have no any coordination.|
|May-29-18|| ||ChessHigherCat: Count Wedgemore exercises complete telepathic control over Caruana and he predicted that C would lose the f-pawn. Simple as that.|
|May-29-18|| ||BOSTER: Black'd consider the sacr Bxc3.|
|May-29-18|| ||ChessHigherCat: Mateo: Maybe Ra5 ties down the rook on a8. If black plays Rb8 as I suggested, now white can play Nd4, and Bxd4 would undouble whites pawns and leave the black a-pawn defenseless.|
|May-29-18|| ||moronovich: Drawn officially ½-½ ):):):|
|May-29-18|| ||moronovich: Very interezzzzzzting games today.|
|May-29-18|| ||ChessHigherCat: That was too early for a draw! Don't they have these strict "Sophia" rules that prohibit players from talking and offering each other draws?|
|May-29-18|| ||moronovich: <CHC>
I think move repetition beats everything
|May-29-18|| ||ChessHigherCat: Doh, I see, they moved so fast I didn't even notice the repetitions!|
|May-29-18|| ||ChessHigherCat: <Mateo> Sorry, you're right, 21. Ra5 was a bad move. Rc5 would have been better.|
|May-29-18|| ||Count Wedgemore: <ChessHigherCat: Count Wedgemore exercises complete telepathic control over Caruana..>|
Uhhmm..it is part of a top secret US/Norwegian mind control project. I wish I could tell you more..
We better not talk about this again.

Okay, just listen to my ultrafrequency message here (played backwards of course):
It's pretty entertaining if you like audiobooks.
|May-29-18|| ||moronovich: It is ok <CHC> !|
I see the Rogoff as the village bar.
A bar were the bar is very low.
Btw:I miss Costa Rica at the World Cup.And remember how great you performed last time.So close you came against the Dutch,almost going through to the semis!
An incredible performance by such a small nation...Was it Boleanos who played for FC Copenhagen !? I think so.
|May-29-18|| ||ChessHigherCat: <moronovich> You need to find a better bar! Did you ever go to Polymagoo or Le Cloître in Paris? Now those were bars! And the Serbian bouncer Ivan would have decorated the sidewalk with Boring Propaganda's splattered remains.|
As to Soccer, my wife forced me to watch all three hours of that match against Holland when they went into all those penalty kicks or whatever (I'm not a huge soccer fan but I admit it's pretty to watch). Close but no cigar.
Anyway, this conversation simply won't do:
