   Nov-26-13 Vladimir Kramnik (replies)
 
Bob726: Has Kramnik been solo #1 on the FIDE List ever in his history? I know he was #1 in Jan 2008 but he had the same rating as Anand (2799), only because he played more games was he ahead.

Bob726: Read https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/FIDE_... Tiebreaks section. So someone like dominguez could still catch topalov by scoring more game points (e.g. going 11/11 in the next tournamnet)
 
   Jun-17-13 Magnus Carlsen (replies)
 
Bob726: Anyone notice that all of his 4 losses this year have been with white? Is that alarming?
 
   Apr-02-13 World Championship Candidates (2013) (replies)
 
Bob726: If Aronian or Svidler had gotten just a half point more, Kramnik would have won the tournament based on tiebreak #1 (h2h between all tied players)
 
   Dec-03-11 Sergey Karjakin (replies)
 
Bob726: It's still doubtful. Kramnik would have to finish -2 for karjakin to qualify. If he finishes -1, he will be 2775.6=2776 and karjakin will be 2768.7=2769. They would have the same average rating for the two lists, but kramniks wins on the third tiebreaker(games played this year, ...
 
   Nov-25-11 Hikaru Nakamura (replies)
 
Bob726: He was actually solid with black and drew all his games with black. Somehow, he managed to lose 3! out of his 5 white games. Unbelieveable, really, as he shouldn't be losing to anyone with white at his level.
 
   Nov-25-11 Tal Memorial (2011) (replies)
 
Bob726: The difference between Karjakin and Kramnik was 48 points just a couple weeks ago. After today's result, Karjakin trails kramnik by only 17.9 (2768.7 to 2786.6)points. Of course, he has to close the gap to within at least 7 points, which still seems like a long shot, but at least ...

Bob726: Aronian - Carlsen 1/2 Kramnik - Nepomniachtchi 1/2 Ivanchuk - Svidler 1/2 Anand - Karjakin 1/2 Nakamura - Gelfand 1/2
 
   Oct-19-11 15th Unive (Crown Group) (2011) (replies)
 
Bob726: Carlsen is the best tournament player in the world currently, but certainly isn't "dominating". He beats lower players much more efficiently, but his record against the other top players in classical games is average. 2010-2011 vs Aronian +0,=3,-0 2010-2011 vs Kramnik +1,=2,-2 ...
 
   May-27-11 Leko vs Kramnik, 2004 (replies)
 
Bob726: Where do Leko go wrong here? Surely he shouldn't have lost the position on move 23. It seemed he already had a pretty bad position before he sac'd the exchange, so where do he go wrong before that?
