   Jan-16-18 Kramnik vs Svidler, 2018 (replies)
DWTaylorSr: Just played through this game and I just don't see the game ending threat white has !!!Can someone enlighten me? I mean black's in bad shape no doubt, but there is no pc. hanging, mate threat that I can see, so why resign? Not taking anything away from Kramnik.I just don't follow
   Jan-15-18 Tata Steel (2018) (replies)
DWTaylorSr: Jones is here because of his finish in last year's Tata Steel "B" group. But then he went on to have a bad year in 2017. Shows sign of being a premier player, but I really think he is just outclassed in this event. But congrats on the good start!!!
   Dec-04-17 London Chess Classic (2017) (replies)
DWTaylorSr: Here's the problem with this type of tournament. Everyone is too familiar with each other. Fact#1. No incentive to perform at a higher quality level if all financials are guaranteed! Fact #2. True, attendance is going to dictate the future of these tournaments. Fact #3.Ilike the ...
   Sep-25-17 Tarjan vs Kramnik, 2017 (replies)
DWTaylorSr: Very true about Tarjan from the 70's.A very good and upcoming player of the times. He had an outstanding result in, I believe the 1974 Olympiad ,wining a medal for the US. After that he just faded from the chess scene .I saw where he made a come back of sort in some Midwest ...
   Sep-24-17 Aronian vs Ding Liren, 2017 (replies)
DWTaylorSr: Don't count Aronian out just yet. I know everyone thinks the Chinese players are heads and shoulders above other players, but I think you may in for a disappointment!!! I really like Aronian's chances here and in the Candidates matches. Good luck Lev!!
   Aug-29-17 Carlsen vs M Vachier-Lagrave, 2017
DWTaylorSr: Just got done playing this game.I was impressed by the complexity of the play. Looks like Carlsen missed some shots, played some moves I didn't understand at all,but this was a very good game by two excellent players. Look for Vachier - Lagrave to be Carlsen's next challenger for
   Jul-09-17 Li Chao vs Svidler, 2017 (replies)
DWTaylorSr: I saw the 17th move also, and thought what is Chao up to.But then when you work it out, Taboo!!! Svidler did well to decline the gift?! Still, I'm not too impressed with Chao's endgame play. Looks as though this aspect of his game needs some work. Solid player.
   Nov-30-16 Carlsen - Karjakin World Championship (2016) (replies)
DWTaylorSr: Congrats to both players. Hard fought Classical match. Look for SK in the future cycles. Like <Mimorri > commented on the match, I'm from the old school matches of the past. I don't mind the new style of matches except for the 12 game classical format. This really ought to ...
   Nov-26-16 Karjakin vs Carlsen, 2016 (replies)
DWTaylorSr: < eddie.fianchetto> Ever play any of Carlsen's games? Your comments sound like ignorance on your part. Why don't you go through about 20-30 games, and maybe you'll get educated to how hard this game really is. Add the stress on time controls, money ,travel and let's not ...
   Nov-25-16 Carlsen vs Karjakin, 2016 (replies)
DWTaylorSr: <7he5haman> Thank you for a very good insightful post about the game. Well thought out and well written. I agree totally with you. Well done!!!
