MUGNUS is da world champoen of SMASHING and only fast chess maters. Sorey u all pursue something that will never make u happey.

  offramp: If Carlsen takes part in the World Rapid Championships, and comes second, what do we say about the guy who comes first?
Nov-30-18  posoo: Good question offramp. I am going to say that the proper appellation would be “World Rapid Champion.”
Dec-01-18  metatron2: Carlsen was so impressive in the rapid tie-breaks that I am not sure whether Carlsen with classical time controls would actually beat Carlsen with rapid time controls..

Maybe that extra time to think just gets Carlsen a bit out of focus, or causes him to over-calculate on the expense of his amazing intuition. I don't know, he just looks stronger to me when he plays rapid..

Dec-02-18  Justin796: In an article I read, Garry Kasparov said Carlsens play only drops off a small percentage when going from classical to rapid time control.....Other players drop significantly like Caruana...Carlsen no longer goes for the kill in classical

  Tiggler: <<Pedro Fernandez> Say $54,000 tax + $36,000 Hotel = $90,000, is a lot of money! I don't know whether U.S. Chess Federation also request a piece of this cake.>

Nothing could surprise me about what USCF might request, but I should be astonished if Fabi or any other intelligent person would comply. He is seemingly a very well mannered young man so he probably would refrain from the kind of uncouth reply that they might receive from one such as myself.

Dec-06-18  gokusano: <posoo: Good question offramp. I am going to say that the proper appellation would be “World Rapid Champion.”> This is a surprise. Posoo can write senile english!
Dec-06-18  SugarDom: OMG. What happened to <posso>? He's acting weird today.

I hope he's ok.

Premium Chessgames Member
  perfidious: Which constitutes a step up.
Premium Chessgames Member
  Tiggler: Da old posso's forum is closed for some reason, or I would post this there. On his bio he says <da old posoo hereby REQUESTS dat chusgums allow him to draw his own avatar.>

Well anyone can do that and send it in, so long as it is a 48x48 gif. But how can he draw? I thought he despised da draw.

I sure hope he's OK, too. One of my ALLTIME GOAT posters.

Dat he is generally less popular with the ladies.

Lol-took me a little while,which just made the feeling better.

That he is Anand's rightful heir.

Dec-07-18  starry2013: Carlsen is always in the mix in both rapid and blitz, whether he wins it or not he always shows he can compete whatever form he is in. One tournament obviously doesn't show who is the categorical best, particularly as it's always very close in the top places anyway. Ratings is always the best judge.

  Tiggler: <moronovich>:<Was born in Elsinore,Denmark,1953> I checked your bio, as you see, after reading your nice post concerning <Unknown soldier who missed a train in Odessa>. I liked it very much, but was led to believe that you spent time in the gulag as a result of your tardiness for a train while under the thumb of the Soviet Union. Never mind, I got the gist of your post, and commend you for it.

How fitting that our brilliant and poetic IM was born in Hamlet's home hamlet!

Premium Chessgames Member
  moronovich: Thanks <CHC> and <Tiggler> ! Elsinore was a great place to grow up.The water,the close connection to Sweden,the famous highway E45 just outside the door,the old houses and so forth.I could go on for hours :) And one correction <CHC>.I am not an IM,I only have an IM norm.
Premium Chessgames Member
  ChessHigherCat: <Moro> Just one more norm and you'll be able to say:


I've been reading "Riddle of the Sands" by Erskine Childer, which is a spy novel about that area of the Baltic and the North Sea. It sounds very beautiful. I recommend finding a translation if you want to read it, though, because even I have to look up a lot of the nautical vocabulary in English.

Premium Chessgames Member
  moronovich: Thanks for your tip <CHC> ! I´ll put that in my inner box,but currently I dont read a lot):
Premium Chessgames Member
  Tiggler: <moronovich>: <currently I dont read a lot> But you should! One of the pleasures of my retirement is that I have resumed reading 100 or more books a year. A few are heavyweight, but most are spy and detective novels that seldom last me more than 12 hours. And if it is sufficiently absorbing I can sit up all night finishing one, and then sleep well for half the next day.
Premium Chessgames Member
  Tiggler: Mention of Hamlet and Elsinore reminds me of a trip I took to Cawdor Castle near the Moray Firth in north east Scotland. The region is well worth a visit, with many other attractions: the river Spey, famous for sport salmon fishing as well as numerous distinguished whiskey distilleries, the broad windswept mountains of the Caingorms, beautiful lonely beaches, but beware: the sea will chill you to the bone unless you swim very vigorously.

  moronovich: <the sea will chill you to the bone unless you swim very vigorously.>

There is a reason for all those whiskey distilleries ;) The region sounds like a bit of heaven and it is on my bucket list.
