Six pawns! Do you know what that means? There are only eight to begin with.

   Nov-28-14 FIDE World Championship Tournament (2005)
Absentee: Closer in strength to whom, WHEN? In 2005-2006 Topalov was by all evidence stronger than both. He was first at Linares 2005 (ahead of Anand), Mtel Masters 2005 (ahead of Anand and Kramnik) and 2006 (ahead of Anand) and Corus A 2006 (tied with Anand).
   Nov-28-14 Carlsen-Anand World Championship (2014) (replies)
Absentee: <IndianFan> You still aren't making any sense. If you don't like Carlsen's style, that's fine. But claiming that it's ugly and chess should be played differently is just plain stupid, do you get it? What you're doing is rationalizing a massive dose of butthurt, because ...
   Nov-26-14 Magnus Carlsen (replies)
Absentee: <HeMateMe: I'm not a detractor. I just think a career resume is more important than what a 23 year old has done lately. Tal was world champion at a younger age than Carlsen, but I wouldn't put Tal in my top five ever. His career results don't justify it, and neither do MC's.>
   Nov-25-14 Garry Kasparov (replies)
Absentee: Running the same campaign as always.
   Nov-23-14 Carlsen vs Anand, 2014 (replies)
Absentee: <caissafan1963: Anyone have this up on an engine? Curious as to its eval.> Houdini 4 on FIDE's official site gives it as dead equal (0.04-0.19).
   Nov-22-14 Anand vs Carlsen, 2014 (replies)
Absentee: <Sally Simpson: Also the player seeking the win may be at +0.50+ but is willing to accept -0.50 just so long as the position is complicated enough to give his opponent a tough series of only moves to find.> It doesn't quite work like that. When an engine evaluates a position ...
   Nov-20-14 Carlsen vs Anand, 2014 (replies)
Absentee: <Marmot PFL: < Surprisingly lackluster effort by Magnus Carlsen. You'd think he'd want to win another game with White and clinch the match, but apparently not.> That's what I was betting on, and lost.> Me too. Let's class action Carlsen.
   Nov-19-14 Anand vs Carlsen, 2014 (replies)
Absentee: <Pedro Fernandez: Harrwitz Attack. Attack? Where? A super solid line with zero creativity, that's what I saw.> There are no monsters in the Frankenstein-Dracula either, and no offal in the Fried Liver.
   Nov-18-14 Carlsen vs Anand, 2014 (replies)
Absentee: <Chessinfinite: btw, tell me how do you 'push' for a win in that ending?> From which move? Up to a point, there were concrete winning possibilities over the board. After the pawns were gone, there clearly was no play left and Carlsen was just putting Anand through the ...
   Nov-15-14 Carlsen vs Anand, 2014 (replies)
Absentee: <SirRuthless: <Absentee> @#$% off @#$%*@!.> I can't decipher the third word.
