Absentee: <SirRuthless: There is no time for that. He should make a few phone calls and see what can be arranged. I would.> You really think that's even remotely possible or was is just a joke?
 
   May-21-15 Caruana vs Gelfand, 2015 (replies)
 
Absentee: <leow: I looked at the clocks where both have less then 30 mins left for 29 moves. Isnt thay bad time control on both sides?> I find it weird too. Still, it's not as bad as yesterday's double time scramble or Ivanchuk's multiple losses on time in the Candidates 2013.

Absentee: <AylerKupp: "What is the difference between a computer telling you that a specific move wins vs. a grandmaster telling you that a specific move wins?"> The computer is more reliable.

Absentee: <Sally Simpson: Interesting to hear Lawson say he felt a strong OTB presence from Kapsparov wafting across the board. He also mentions when he played Carlsen in a previous series he felt nothing.> Maybe Kasparov should just go easier on the beans and garlic.

Absentee: But is he good with kids?

Absentee: <bobthebob: <Don't you know what MC says about this bufoon?> 1. What is a bufoon? 2. Maybe MC says "nice to see that HN wins at blitz without trying to cheat. He is a good role model". Game Collection: Carlsen's cheating attempts> You really do have a fixation, don't ...
