Sep-07-14  waustad: A win today over GM Arkadij Naiditsch must rank as one of the best results so far in his young career.

Sep-15-16  ketchuplover: muchas gracias for helping team usa win Olympic gold in Baku :)
Sep-05-17  SugarDom: Our prayers are with you.

Go Matthias, bring down the arrogant and haughty!

Sep-06-17  epistle: Always remember his weakness: you can HURT him by draws. So just play solidly, boringly and safely. Any appearance that the game leans towards a draw will create a mental imbalance in his head, resulting to bad decisions. That is the way to play him.
Sep-06-17  Nina Myers: Shoot for the moon, Matthew. Even if you miss, you'll land among the stars.
Sep-06-17  wordfunph: Hit the chess playing mooncake!
Sep-06-17  SugarDom: No mistakes from both sides up to move 18, but his opponent may exploit the isolated pawn of Bluebaum in the d-file, that's why the Engines have white ahead by 0.25.
Sep-06-17  Nonnus: Bluebaum can draw this.
Sep-06-17  SugarDom: Bluebaum's opponent may try to draw 2 games and attempt to win in the rapids tie-break. Bluebaum's rapid and blitz rating are not impressive at all.

However, Bluebaum's opponent need elo points to qualify for the candidates and that may cause him to overpress. Let's hope so, lol.

Sep-06-17  wordfunph: Very nice draw indeed. Napakasakit brother ed.
Sep-07-17  Pulo y Gata: Another excellent draw! Keep them coming!
Sep-08-17  Kapmigs: mababa ang rating niya sa rapids at blitz. bentahe si gm so dito.
Sep-08-17  Pulo y Gata: He gains confidence with every draw. Next he will have white and will hit the jackpot
Sep-08-17  SugarDom: Looks like draw again in game 2 of rapids.

Go Bluebaum.

Sep-08-17  Pulo y Gata: If you draw against an overrated player, it is already a jackpot
Sep-08-17  SugarDom: Bluebaum's raw coolness is unsettling his opponent.
Sep-08-17  wordfunph: He is giving the dumpling the blues
Sep-08-17  wordfunph: ok lang yan Matias. Bawi na lang next game. Or at least pahirapan mo para mapagod
Sep-08-17  SugarDom: Bluebaum has done his job, spoiling the enemy's chances to qualify for the candidates via ratings.
