   Sep-25-17 Aronian vs Ding Liren, 2017 (replies)
 
Beholder: <Richard Taylor: I assumed that Ding Liren and Aronian would both now meet up in the Candidates.> You assumed correctly. Both finalists from the World Cup qualify for the Candidates. That does not in any way preclude them from fighting in the final for the World Cup trophy ...
 
   Sep-25-17 J L Watson vs Kosteniuk, 2017 (replies)
 
Beholder: It's elementary, my dear Watson!
 
   Sep-20-17 M Vachier-Lagrave vs Svidler, 2017 (replies)
 
Beholder: While in this particular instance, taking into account the knockout nature of the event, Peter's peaceful disposition could perhaps be more justly criticized than is usually the case, it should also be noted that when the draw offer came Svidler has had 18 minutes on his clock ...
 
   Sep-18-17 Kramnik vs Harikrishna, 2017
 
Beholder: <ReneDescartes: Kramnik hss got to be the greatest exponent of passed pawns ever to play the game.> <HeMateMe: greatest "proponent"?> Also greatest imponent.
 
   Sep-17-17 World Cup (2017) (replies)
 
Beholder: <Domdaniel: MVL wins. Sorry to see Peter go (the last of the Russians!)> Not only was Svidler the last of the Russians, but also the last of the players of, shall we say, middle age (and incidentally, of a comparable age to myself). So I am triply sad to see him go -- he also

Beholder: I'm already bracing myself for something like... <The term 'Aronian' may be somewhat ambiguous, but it is definitely not a clear-cut, to-be-taken-for-granted, synonym for Aronian as Beholder implied.>
 
   Aug-19-17 St. Louis Rapid & Blitz (Blitz) (2017) (replies)
 
Beholder: <Appaz: It's of course all in the eye of the beholder> It sure is, can confirm.
 
   Aug-01-17 Biel (2017) (replies)
 
Beholder: In a classical control tourney that includes Morozevich, Ponomariov, Leko, Bacrot, Navara, all accomplished Super-GMs with a long list of accolades behind each, Hou Yifan is now in solo lead after 8 rounds played. Exciting times we live now in, ladies and gentlemen! I distinctly ...
 
   May-10-17 Grischuk vs M Rodshtein, 2017
 
Beholder: <Grischuk found all the strongest moves under extreme time pressure> That's his modus operandi.
 
   May-10-17 Russian Team Championships (2017) (replies)
 
Beholder: Check out Rozum - Kramnik as well. The way Kramnik makes a 2600 GM, who's playing White to boot, look like an idiot is nothing short of amazing. And hilarious.
