|Aug-29-14|| ||perfidious: <Shams> Engine evals are mightier than God. Doesn't matter whether the position suits one's taste or other such foolish considerations. These top GMs and engines can play their games while we play ours.|
|Aug-29-14|| ||Appaz: Quite hairy variations from Stockfish whether 21.Rf7, 21.Qxd3 or what ever. These players are in a jungle. And clock is ticking.|

|Aug-29-14|| ||MarkFinan: <annihilator: most comments are just about what stockfish's saying. guys, you can do better than that. talk about what YOU think about the game, don't worry about being wrong, we're just chatting.>|
For once. I got nothing!?LOL.
I've just joined the game and feel more confused than as anyone here is, let's see what the engines saying so I can get with it!
Still true though, lol ✌
|Aug-29-14|| ||Penguincw: Obviously, Aronian won yesterday, and MVL lost. However, it looks like tables will turn:|

Doing a body count, white is up a pawn, but on the board, is probably up a king.
|Aug-29-14|| ||HeMateMe: I choose John Belushi over Tom Hulce.|
|Aug-29-14|| ||Reisswolf: In my experience, a pawn battery on the g-file is not as useful as a rook battery.|
|Aug-29-14|| ||Penguincw: After 22.hxg4, white has triple pawns. Not the first time Carlsen has triple pawns this TOURNAMENT:|
M Vachier-Lagrave vs Carlsen, 2014 (16...bxc2)
Well, I gotta go, but I hope Caruana can convert this advantage. MVL has already done so.
|Aug-29-14|| ||boz: MVL with a big win over Aronian.|
|Aug-29-14|| ||notyetagm: MVL just *crushed* Aronian in 35 moves. Aronian was lost way before then.|

I choose Chris Farley over John Belushi.
|Aug-29-14|| ||HeMateMe: Is 24...Qxg3 feasible? Black could get a tempo here.|
|Aug-29-14|| ||Pedro Fernandez: 23...Kxh8 seems obvious.|
|Aug-29-14|| ||Raymond Ouyang: It's going to be a draw.|
|Aug-29-14|| ||boz: 23...Qxg3 looks more like a snow plough than a queen.|

As a sub-patzer I have no clue about what is going on in these games at most times so I am always amused at how badly I don't understand...
I don't know what they put in the water in St. Louis, but these games are incredibly interesting and "non-typical" (whatever that means) and that most games are like this.
Also, for those that don't like the commentators, as a patzer, I think they are great since they explain things that I didn't always understand - or at least didn't figure out very quickly.
|Aug-29-14|| ||zanzibar: Funny kind of castling Caruana did today.|
|Aug-29-14|| ||ajile: <HeMateMe: Is 24...Qxg3 feasible? Black could get a tempo here.>|
How should I know? I just threw my computer out the window per forum members wishes.
|Aug-29-14|| ||Shams: <ajile> Good man! You'll thank us later. :)|
|Aug-29-14|| ||Pedro Fernandez: Yeah! My bad as the knight can be captured later.|
|Aug-29-14|| ||Shams: Wow that was quite an impressive win today by Vachier-Lagrave. "I got greedy," says a genial Aronian in the post-mortem.|
|Aug-29-14|| ||ajile: 25.e6?|
|Aug-29-14|| ||estrick: Yaz says, "Carlsen just looks lost"|
