  SugarDom: Jobava has the psychological advantage with the draw with black.

He should press for a win in the next game against the punk who's much better than him in blitz.

Sep-13-17  Arconax: <SugarDom> I wouldn't call young Wesley a "punk" but yes, I do think Jobava has excellent chances of winning tomorrow.

  SugarDom: Don't even mention the name, it's unspeakable.
Sep-13-17  tuttifrutty: <<SugarDom> I wouldn't call young Wesley a "punk" >

I agree...but I would call Sugardom a punk instead...

<but yes, I do think Jobava has excellent chances of winning tomorrow.>

My crystal ball says BJ has a slim .0001% chance of winning.

Sep-13-17  Arconax: <fruitcake: My crystal ball says BJ has a slim .0001% chance of winning.>

I have more faith in <SugarDom>'s (and my own) assessment of tomorrow's game between Jobava and So than your "crystal ball" predictions, thank you very much.

Sep-13-17  tuttifrutty: We shall see...

  SugarDom: Jobava the Hut's stockfish is working just fine. He's receiving the morse code from his left shoe.

Putting the lights out on Punk Solo.

Sep-13-17  Nonnus: If only Joba can put his N at h5 and his heavy artilleries on the g-file
Sep-13-17  Nonnus: Current position looks very good for Joba. The g7 and h6 pawns are sitting ducks targets

  SugarDom: Jobava is ahead in tempo and clock. Always a dangerous combination.
Sep-13-17
Premium Chessgames Member
  SugarDom: Very high quality fight. No real blunders so far...
Sep-13-17  geniokov: I think it's a draw! White cannot make any chances to convert it into substantial advantage. The only advantage White has is computer evaluation.

Premium Chessgames Member
  SugarDom: Exactly <geniokov>. The idiots in the WS page is too slow in the uptake. That what happens when they ban people like us there.
Sep-13-17  geniokov: I was impressed about Jobaba's handling of White pieces!
Sep-13-17  geniokov: Jobava is a dangerous player. He must not be understimated. He is the same as GM Kiril Giorgiev!
Sep-13-17
Premium Chessgames Member
  SugarDom: But this is looking more like a draw than a decisive result.
Sep-13-17  geniokov: Correct Sugardom!

Premium Chessgames Member
  SugarDom: Rooks and pawns endgames with equal material are mostly drawn.
Sep-13-17
Premium Chessgames Member
  SugarDom: In other words it's a <technical draw>.
Sep-13-17  geniokov: After Black's..g5 then it would be draw!
Nov-16-17  waustad: This week the Austrian Bundesliga starts, with Jobava playing first board for Sparkasse Jenbach. Games are on live via http://chess-results.com/live.aspx?...
Nov-26-17  Ironmanth: Happy birthday, Grandmaster! Surely enjoy your daring and brilliant style. Cheers, sir!

That's quite a rating chart... What happened?

Aug-06-19  Troller: <alexmagnus: http://ratings.fide.com/id.phtml?ev...

Just noticed that as well - saw him on CB with 2584 and wondered if there was another Jobava. But I do not know of an explanation.
