I suppose they are too enthralled by this live chess game to offer any comments.

Jul-20-18  technical draw: White has the two bishops, just like Kram..,uh, nevermind.
Jul-20-18  Marmot PFL: The black knight will be well placed once it gets to d5.

  Check It Out: While we are waiting for Giri's dazzler, his name reminds of that noise the Japanese gal would make while torturing her parylized victim with tiny needles slowly twisted in to their pain centers in that cult movie The Audition: "Giri giri, giri giri." Creepy.

  Check It Out: This looks like a BJJ roll between two black belts. You have to prod and manipulate, go here, go there, and look for a weakness or opportunity.

Exactly, I saw (as much as I could stand of) that movie here in Costa Rica, and the creepiest part was that the girls in the audience were giggling when she was doing the sado-acupuncture number!
