Hi, I'm one of those people who can edit player bios. If you bring my attention to a problem with a bio, I'll be happy to help.

   Billy Vaughan has kibitzed 1563 times to chessgames   [more...]
   Sep-01-19 Magnus Carlsen (replies)
Billy Vaughan: <parmetd: Ah <Billy Vaughan> stealing Giri's very unfunny line without giving credit?> Did Giri say this? I suppose I'll have to share credit like Newton and Leibniz
   Aug-29-19 Sinquefield Cup (2019) (replies)
Billy Vaughan: Listening to the commentary for the first time. I missed Yas saying "Carywana"
   May-30-19 FIDE Candidates (Women) (2019) (replies)
Billy Vaughan: It would've been interesting to do a sisters vs. sisters event between the Muzychuks and the Kosintsevas when they were active
   May-26-19 FIDE Grand Prix Moscow (2019) (replies)
Billy Vaughan: <Game Collection: 16-player KO, do we want this? At least one can count the games in it.> That's readable, though liable to scroll things horizontally. You could also put successive rounds below the previous ones under a "SEMI-FINALS" header, though that makes the ...
   Jan-29-19 Tata Steel Masters (2019) (replies)
Billy Vaughan: <Sokrates> I'm not delusional ;) but I thought it would be an interesting post for the rest of us
   Dec-14-18 London Chess Classic (2018) (replies)
Billy Vaughan: <Given Carlsen's age where he should be entering not leaving his prime, it is obvious that Carlsen is suffering from a medical problem.> Is it so obvious? I'm about the same age as Carlsen and also have less energy than I did five years ago. My friends tell me the same. ...
   Nov-29-18 Carlsen - Caruana World Championship Match (2018) (replies)
Billy Vaughan: <(he will be at 2833 on the next FIDE rating list, only a tantalizing 1 Elo rating point below Carlsen in Classic time control games)> FIDE still calculates ratings off the chart rather than the formula, right? I was under the impression there would be no change in ...
   Nov-02-18 Humpy Koneru
Billy Vaughan: It seems Humpy's making a return to chess after her marriage and the birth of her child. I'm surprised the chess media haven't picked up on this story.
   Oct-17-18 Sergei Tiviakov (replies)
Billy Vaughan: Here's my attempt to verify Tiviakov's streak. Tiviakov played in the Olympiad in mid-October of 2004, losing to Vladimir Georgiev in the second to last round. He later lost to Shabalov in the fifth round of the Isle of Man tournament, late September of 2005. Between these ...
   Oct-17-18 Ding Liren (replies)
Billy Vaughan: I think the actual truth is nobody has in any rigorous way documented anyone's streaks. There's probably some player somewhere who has a bigger streak than Tiviakov, too, maybe some region's local IM or GM who doesn't play anyone difficult (incidentally, a recent Chessbase ...
