Absentee: <Dionysius1: Oh dear - Kasparov is beginning to sound like an old retired blowhard.> Yes, he's been beginning to do that for the last 10 years or so.
   Dec-03-16 Carlsen - Karjakin World Championship (2016) (replies)
Absentee: <chancho: From the NY Times: <Lev Alburt: Its one of the highest-quality matches on both sides. Even the fact of many draws, almost all have been achieved in very sharp play. Both players are trying to squeeze something almost from nothing. Where other players would play ...

Absentee: <BOSTER: Black has dirty hole on e6.> Has this something to do with the need to use the toilet for more than 10 minutes?
   Nov-30-16 Magnus Carlsen (replies)
Absentee: There's Fressinet, I think, and surely many others. But under the circumstances Carlsen seems an obvious choice.

Absentee: <keypusher: I could throw my computer through the window right now.> If you throw it hard enough you might even hit Carlsen.

Absentee: <Knight13: <10 minute breaks between games.> What if someone needs to use the bathroom for more than 10 minutes?> Then they'd better use those 10 minutes to rush to a store and buy a pack of diapers.

Absentee: <optimal play: IMHO Karjakin played his best ever chess in this match and Carlsen played his worst!> Carlsen played as well as ever, and better than he did in the last match with Anand, to name only one event. Don't take my word for it, go through the games with an engine.
   Nov-27-16 Fidel Castro (replies)
Absentee: <twinlark: A reminder to people who are dumping on the memory and their idea of Fidel Castro's legacy that Nelson Mandela considered a great ally and a good friend.> They're just repeating the sales pitch they've been fed. It's not like it means something.

Absentee: <Griffidam: Jan suffers from the same problem as me. You can't be a top chess player if you're a comedian. You can never be serious.> He also suffers from a second problem: you can't be a comedian if you're as funny as syphilis.

Absentee: - Mind-readers - World-class lawyers - Padded-cell mathematicians - Psychics Only here!
