|Jan-27-19|| ||JohnBoy: <Chicgirl> - can you give a link to Giri bashing Sam st Batumi?|
|Jan-27-19|| ||chancho: <JohnBoy> https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z1U...|
|Jan-27-19|| ||Mudphudder: LOL I'm actually surprised Giri accepted his resignation. Giri was so close to another draw!!!!|
|Jan-28-19|| ||torrefan: This is a game where black lost <because> he is a grandmaster.|
|Jan-28-19|| ||JohnBoy: Watching/listening to the Shankland interview at Batumi - plus the Giri insert - I donít see this as Giri slamming Sam. Itís a rather honest statement. SS is new to the 2700 club and will need to establish that he belongs there.|
This tournament helps quite a bit. An even score is damned solid. And he could easily have been up 2.
|Feb-02-19|| ||DonChalce: how is this not a draw?|
|Feb-02-19|| ||parmetd: <DonChalce> It is. See above for interview with Giri confirming Shankland resigned.|
|Feb-02-19|| ||ChessHigherCat: Okay, but let's shut up about it now, the poor guy will probably be haunted by it all his life anyway.|
|Feb-25-19|| ||offramp: <Jan-26-19 Cedroke: What a Tata Steal.>|
Well done, User: Cedroke!
|Feb-25-19|| ||perfidious: It is ironic that, despite this gift late in this event and Giri's pacific tendencies receding to some degree, he still found himself unable to overtake Carlsen for first overall.|
|Feb-25-19|| ||OrangeTulip: What a nasty comment, perfidious. Giri played again a great tournament, but Carlsen played even better.|
|Feb-25-19|| ||HeMateMe: why did Shank make the middlegame recapture that left him with double isolated 'b' pawns? Those pawns were useless.|
|Feb-25-19|| ||moronovich: <HeMateMe: why did Shank make the middlegame recapture that left him with double isolated 'b' pawns?>|
Shankland is a clever man.
If he hadnīt recaptured he would have been a piece down.
Last time I checked,the same rule applies for N.Y.
|Feb-25-19|| ||HeMateMe: he could have recaptured with the Knight on d7? why mangle your pawn structure?|
|Feb-25-19|| ||moronovich: All comes with a price.Try to investigate why Shank does as he does.You can be shure he has his reasons.|
|Feb-25-19|| ||Muttley101: <perfidious: "It is ironic that, despite this gift late in this event and Giri's pacific tendencies receding to some degree, he still found himself unable to overtake Carlsen for first overall.">|
This isn't even irony.
|Feb-25-19|| ||The Kings Domain: Nice play by Giri, smooth and efficient.|

I think you may be right. A better word would be "noteworthy" which is nothing like "ironic".
|Feb-25-19|| ||offramp: Today's Pun is credited on the home page to User: rcs784, but it is incongruously, mockingly, paradoxically, ridiculously, sardonically, satirically, twistedly, unexpectedly and wryly the creation of <Cedroke>.|
|Feb-25-19|| ||rcs784: <offramp> Yes, of course the title belongs to <Cedroke>. I just thought somebody should submit it as GOTD. It's not my fault CG.com gave me credit for it.|
|Feb-25-19|| ||OhioChessFan: I thought it might have been coincidentally entered by someone who didn't know it had already been mentioned. It happens. In any case, it's a very nice pun.|
|Feb-26-19|| ||offramp: I was not impugning anyone's veracity or traducing his or her propriety. I was simply making a post avoiding the word "ironically".|
|Feb-26-19|| ||perfidious: So long as my voracity is not questioned, makes no difference to me--I can work up a fair appetite now and again.|
|Mar-12-19|| ||kamajiro: Draw °° 55..kd6°= the black king can not be expelled from c8 ,stalemate|
|May-17-19|| ||Howard: NIC said that Giri had read Shankland's "body language" and suspected that Shankland was getting ready to resign. So, he kept playing rather than offer a draw. And it paid off !|
