   Oct-20-19 Nakamura vs Aronian, 2019 (replies)
Absentee: <Atking: <Messiah: <spingo> In this tourney the earliest possible draw offer can happen just after Black's 31. move.> Are you sure? One game of the top boards has just finished at move 18 draw agree.> The 30-move rule only applies to draws by agreement. The ...
   Oct-19-19 Carlsen vs Caruana, 2019 (replies)
Absentee: <keypusher: <Messiah: C'mon, Caru, TROUNCE the boy!!!!> I'm trying to think how miserable I'd have to be to (1) fervently wish for a chess player to lose (2) feel obligated to post my wish in public for all to see before every single game he played. Miserable enough to ...

Absentee: <beatgiant: Should I teach my daughter to play chess? Or will she just hear a lot of attempted humor about transgenderism or lab partners? (rolls eyes)> Teach her to make sammiches.

   Oct-15-19 Carlsen vs Shirov, 2019 (replies)
Absentee: <Messiah: The boy is winning - this is a sad day.> Are you some kind of performance artist or just oblivious to ridicule?
   Oct-12-19 Shirov vs Caruana, 2019 (replies)
Absentee: <Stonehenge: Classical games: Alexey Shirov beat Fabiano Caruana 3 to 1, with 1 draw.> With Shirov's most recent win being in 2011, I'd take that score with a grain of salt.
   Oct-09-19 World Cup (2019) (replies)
Absentee: <AylerKupp: I guess I was lucky most of the time. But I do have some scar marks around my neck for those times when I was not.> I doubt it. You can be lucky for a lifetime, but you can only be unlucky once.
   Sep-28-19 Reinhart Fuchs
Absentee: An interesting choice of name by his parents. Reinhart Fuchs (Reinhart the Fox) is a well-known trickster figure from German folklore.
   Aug-31-19 Sinquefield Cup (2019) (replies)
Absentee: <nok: <it seemed to me that during his interviews, including the final one where he congratulated Ding Liren for his victory, Carlsen was very down on himself for his relatively poor play and made no excuses for it whatsoever> Is he threatening to become a decent human ...
