Bureaucrat: Abdel, hehehe! I like it!
 
   May-12-15 Magnus Carlsen (replies)
 
Bureaucrat: <Appaz: Proclaiming Carlsen to be the greatest ever of anything is a bit premature in my opinion, and I say that as a big Carlsen-fan.> By "greatest endgame player" I guess most people think of the strongest endgame player of all time, not the player with the greatest ...

Bureaucrat: <Certainly Anand would play.> I doubt it. But such a match would be great!

Bureaucrat: <Apparently there will be a big focus on (...)> Yeah, that's "exceedingly funny". I guess using massacred kids to crack a joke makes great satire. What a disgusting scumbag.

Bureaucrat: <chesssantosh: What happens after 52...a2?> 53.Ra7. If Black takes the Bishop, White wins the Rook endgame.
 
   Apr-17-15 Anand vs Carlsen, 2015 (replies)
 
Bureaucrat: I think it was simply a blunder by Carlsen, but good defense after that.
 
   Feb-19-15 Zurich Chess Challenge (2015) (replies)
 
Bureaucrat: What does "in pure chess terms" mean?
 
   Feb-11-15 GRENKE Chess Classic (2015) (replies)
 
Bureaucrat: Lambda, you are right. "Absolute playing strength" makes no sense at all. If ratings at the top increase because the players get better, it's because they get better compared to the average player, not because their "absolute strength" increases. In other words, there must be a ...
