  AylerKupp: <<WDenayer> It would be the second time that the Mozart of chess will be unable to win the classical chess part. It has to come with a psychological cost. Not good.>

And yet Carlsen will retain his title and get 55% of the 1 M Euro prize fund. That extra 100 K euros should more than balance any psychological cost

Glad to do so. I just hope that you don't misfire as often as I do.

  Dionysius1: Hi <AylerKupp> <Given the closeness of their pre-match Elo ratings at Classic time controls I don't see why anyone is surprised at 7 straight draws> I do understand. But 3 wins each and a draw would be so much easier to sell!

  zanzibar: <<AK> What I want to know is, if he's been a member since Sep-23-96 and has never kibitzed, what constituted his "sighting" on Oct-16-06? Does anyone have any thoughts? Or should I ask poor <Sargon>?>

He last logged into his account then, that's all.

Damn, he was a member of this site before it existed.

  Sally Simpson: Norwegian Woodpusher was once put forward as a pun to a Carlsen game.

Carlsen vs Bacrot, 2010 (kibitz #40)

They eventually went for Norwegian Wood.

It was a joke cause AK typed in "96" instead of "06".

So did I. ;)

Nov-18-18  optimal play: This time the Queens stayed on past the 30th move but were exchanged soon after, with the game then quickly being drawn.

Oh well, we'll see what happens tomorrow.

  vonKrolock: <"I had one chance to play actively but I didn’t entirely believe in it,” said <Carlsen>, referring to his choice to castle (15. O-O) instead of Nce4. “Castling is essentially just an admission that the position is equal. I was also looking at f4, which is interesting but probably nonsensical.”> (apud 'The Guardian')

Nope. They went for "Norwegian Would"!

The "Norwegian Wood" GOTD title is used here:
