   Jun-28-17 Grand Chess Tour Paris (Blitz) (2017) (replies)
Absentee: <Keyser Soze: <absentee> Oi?? AFAIK, Shirov <was> the qualify winner beating the same hypocrite Kramnik in a qualify match.> Shirov beat Kramnik in a previous cycle (if you want to call it that, it was only one brief match). All proposals for a Kasparov-Shirov ...
   Jun-27-17 Grand Chess Tour Paris (Rapid) (2017) (replies)
Absentee: Caruana used to be one of the best at rapid. He was ranked #1 for about a year in 2014-2015 and near the top until recently. In FIDE World Rapid Championship (2014) he also had a better TPR than Carlsen despite finishing half a point behind him. He was atrocious at blitz, though, ...
   Jun-20-17 Altibox Norway (2017) (replies)
Absentee: <activechess55: How does one avoid brain fatigue?> 4. Don't be jet-lagged.
   Jun-16-17 W So vs Aronian, 2017 (replies)
Absentee: Oh blimey, they got to move 23!
   Jun-16-17 Karpov - Fischer World Championship Match (1975) (replies)
Absentee: <<Petrosianic: <Absentee>: <I don't know how you got to that conclusion> 1) Todicav agreed that Fischer was an all-around genius, not just a chess genius. 2) keypusher (and others) pointed out that he had no accomplishments outside chess. 3) You countered that ...
   Jun-15-17 Karjakin vs Aronian, 2017 (replies)
Absentee: <Sally Simpson: Hi Lads, Sorry to pour cold water on the discovery of the century, but what player has won the majority of their games by never going...> the toilet?
   Jun-11-17 Kramnik vs Nakamura, 2017 (replies)
Absentee: <BOSTER: Strange, but white king is more open than black king.> Yes, you really really really want Kramnik to lose, or at least not to win, we got it already.
   Jun-10-17 Nakamura vs M Vachier-Lagrave, 2017 (replies)
Absentee: <Marmot PFL: <SirRuthless> easy to prepare against a one-opening player and nakamura is pretty good at preparing sharp lines.> I'm not so sure it was preparation at all. Nakamura was already thinking by move 12 and in the end used only a little less time than Lagrave.
   Jun-09-17 Magnus Carlsen (replies)
Absentee: Perhaps Carlsen vs Yu Yangyi, 2015 ?
   Jun-08-17 Carlsen vs Nakamura, 2017 (replies)
Absentee: Kramnik-So looks interesting now.
