   Dec-03-18 Ding Liren (replies)
Caleb554: I think if Ding is at his best, and Carlsen is little off colour as he was when he played Caruana, Ding has a much better chance of beating Carlsen I think. Ding has a slightly better grasp of Dynamics in the position, though Carlsen's positional understanding more than compensates
   Nov-23-18 Carlsen - Caruana World Championship Match (2018) (replies)
Caleb554: I think Carlsen is clearly the favourite now. He has white tomorrow, which he should make a comfortable draw to save some energy for the rapid portion of the match. I don't think Caruana would be inclined to play very sharply in the final match with his white pieces. Though, he ...
   Nov-19-18 Caruana vs Carlsen, 2018 (replies)
Caleb554: <starry2013: Nakamura also said that Caruana is really great at calculating things when there are just a few options, but give him loads of options and he doesn't do as well. If it goes to rapids Carlsen would complicate things I expect and with the limited time it could change ...
   Nov-15-18 Caruana vs Carlsen, 2018 (replies)
Caleb554: <Count Wedgemore: Carlsen's king retreat shows how misguided his whole king excursion has been, starting with 20...Kb6. > He had two back to back whites. No reason to sweat after queens were off. The position was dynamically equal with Caruana up a pawn. Equalizing meant ...
   Nov-14-18 Carlsen vs Caruana, 2018 (replies)
Caleb554: < Optimal Play: How about the next question at 4:00 regarding the video supposedly showing Fab's openings. > I think there was a Petroff in there with a couple of Novelties in the training video. Anand vs Caruana, 2018 He played Petroff and sacrificed a piece on Move 13 with ...
   Nov-06-18 Kasparov vs Karpov, 1990
Caleb554: Kasparov's wins are quite impressive. But the fact remains Garry leads Anotoly by only 2 points in their head-to-head classical matches. Kasparov is better than Karpov by only a small margin.With little bit more luck and mental focus, Karpov could have won one more world ...
   Oct-05-18 Ding Liren vs J K Duda, 2018 (replies)
Caleb554: Ding has more natural talent and feel for the dynamics than Caruana or even Aronian. Maybe if Ding is mentally strong enough and focused, he can beat Carlsen someday. I am not too hopeful about Caruana winning world championship because Caruana's style is more closer to Carlsen. ...
   Sep-07-18 Karpov vs Kasparov, 1993 (replies)
Caleb554: leka: I think you are not correct in your comparison of today's crop of players to that of older generations. Radjabov beat Kasparov when he was 15 or 16. Carlsen drew with Kasparov and was seriously pressing him in a rapid game when he was 13. Computers have bought a lot more new ...
   Sep-07-18 Kasparov vs Anand, 1995 (replies)
Caleb554: Anand was a little unprepared for this tournament. Kasparov had Kramnik as his second, though very young and in his late teens, was already one of the top players in the world. Kramnik also had the capacity for extraordinary preparation and togather with Kasparov, it was little too
   Aug-29-18 Capablanca vs Tartakower, 1924 (replies)
Caleb554: Capa's engine was pretty damn powerful
