|Aug-01-18|| ||offramp: At move 47 surely this is a win for the knight.|
|Aug-01-18|| ||Bobby Spassky: There are still three Carlsen Svidler games listed for this tournament.|
|Aug-01-18|| ||Georgy1954: Is a mistake! This is Carlsen-Georgiadis (last round of Biel 2018). I am a little bit disapppointed with CG for the cover of this tournament.|
|Aug-01-18|| ||chancho: <Georgy1954> The reason it's not running so smoothly is that the guy who usually runs it, died about 8 days ago.|
|Aug-01-18|| ||maxi: After 46.a4 the logical move is 46...bxc, to open lines to the suffocating bishop. The position seems drawish to me. Maybe I am missing something.|
|Aug-01-18|| ||Bobwhoosta: I'm sorry to hear of the passing of Daniel Freeman. I never knew him, but have benefited from his project for most of my adult life.|
|Aug-01-18|| ||Ironmanth: Offering deepest condolences to the staff, members, family, and friends of Daniel Freeman. Just now being made aware of his passing. He befriended me early in June; this comes as a real shock. Thanks for all you did for chessgames, sir. RIP, Daniel.|

"up to speed" is sure an understatement. I don't envy him his task. I imagine it's a steep learning curve to fill in all the gaps.
In complete honesty tho.. I think if we all knew sooner what happened, there would have been a lot less grumbling and complaining. Our momentary inconvenience is trivial in the big picture. As for myself, I would not have been critical. But I'm happy to be here and suffer the bumps in the road while the CG team goes through the transition.
God speed CG! ty for your efforts

Thank you, well said.
|Aug-04-18|| ||vigneshanand: Nd2, Nxc4 to follow from Magnus. Nice technique to out-maneuver Svidler.|
|Aug-06-18|| ||SCUBA diver: There is something wrong with this site.|
|Aug-06-18|| ||Yorkshire Fog: <SCUBA diver> Please have a look at Biel (2018) (kibitz #304) and Biel (2018) (kibitz #306)|
|Aug-07-18|| ||lost in space: Will this Carsen rook dance forever?|

sooner or later he will figure out how to reset it. One would get the impression the live game thing has some special coding that he can't decipher. He may have to hire an outside programmer to come in and get it back on track. Argh.
|Aug-07-18|| ||lost in space: Hope the outside programmer will come soon! Poor Carlsen! Shaking the head for weeks can cause brain damage! Ask Angus Young from AC/DC|

Biel (2018) (kibitz #122)
|Aug-07-18|| ||sfm: Carlsen plays Nf3 5 times in this game, but it is not the same knight. Right after doing it last time Black resigns.
Aha! I will now include this in my arsenal of guiding rules:
"You should frequently move a piece (back) to a square where you earlier have had a piece of the same kind."|
|Aug-09-18|| ||JimNorCal: Someone said this game had finally been stopped.
|Aug-11-18|| ||docbenway: Clearly this game has been trapped in a defective chronosynclastic infundibulum as its five minutes were up a long time ago.|
|Aug-11-18|| ||Jack Kerouac: Well. While you wait, chess community, there is this:
|Aug-12-18|| ||JimNorCal: The days, they just roll on by, don't they?|
|Aug-12-18|| ||TheBish: We must be in a time warp. Went through a wormhole or something. It's dejavu all over again.|
|Aug-12-18|| ||zanzibar: <TheBish> I checked your profile, it looks like you've been away for a bit.|
<Daniel Freeman>, the webmaster and leader of <CG>, has died in the interim:
Daniel Freeman (kibitz #288)
