   Aug-11-15 Magnus Carlsen (replies)
Daisuki: I would rather that FIDE dumped the knockout format (not that it can't work, but it would require long matches in each round to make any sense to me, and I don't see this happening), i.e. the World Cup, at least as a qualifier for the Candidates (it could work as a qualifier for the
   Nov-21-14 Carlsen - Anand World Championship (2014) (replies)
Daisuki: <Kinghunt: Were my ears playing tricks on me, or did Anand ask Carlsen right after that yoga journalist's question if the bird of paradise was some kind of cocktail?> No, I heard it too, and I believe Carlsen responded by saying it was a posture.

Daisuki: Congratulations to Caruana for being the seventh player (and second youngest by each player's age at the time of his respective achievement) to achieve a 2800+ official FIDE rating. I hope he continues to do well and makes more progress with his game.
   Apr-26-14 Gashimov Memorial (2014) (replies)
Daisuki: <AylerKupp>, the live rating list agrees that Radjabov gained 10.5 points for his +1 performance over the first half, and I trust it by default. A +5 performance over the second half would thus gain him 10.5+(5-1)*5=30.5 more points, for a total of 41, and 2713+41=2754, as you
   Mar-30-14 World Chess Championship Candidates (2014) (replies)
Daisuki: Congratulations to Anand, who is the only "worthy" challenger out of this group according to the relevant games. An "in form" Anand seems statistically harder for Carlsen than Kramnik or Aronian are for him, so I'm hoping for an exciting rematch where Anand wins at least one game.
   Dec-11-13 Houdini (Computer) (replies)
Daisuki: -50/0/0 contempt factor/aggressiveness/cowardice Stockfish lost to Houdini in 56 moves, while -50/100/100 (the latter two being defaults) lost in 55 moves. Both games were 60'+30". I don't really see an easy way to make it drag out the game. I could play with pawn settings, but in ...
   Dec-09-13 Anand - Carlsen World Championship (2013) (replies)
Daisuki: Looks like I hit the jackpot. Anyway, it looks like Tata Steel is still a decent tournament...Aronian, Caruana, and Nakamura, and we'll see how much of his old rating Karjakin can recover as well as how much of the hype Wesley So lives up to. Not that those are the only relevant ...
   Dec-08-13 Stockfish vs Houdini, 2013
Daisuki: This game is #328 of nTCEC Season 1, which is listed as Stockfish 250413 vs. Houdini 3. After 19. f5: Stockfish 4: depth 38/54 -0.54 e6xf5 Bc4-d5 Bd7-e6 Bd5xb7 Ra8-b8 Bb7xa6 Rb8xb2 a2-a4 Be6-d5 Rf1-f2 Rb2-b3 Be3-d2 Rf8-a8 Ba6-b5 Bd5-e4 g2-g3 Be7-a3 Rc1-c7 Ra8-d8 Houdini 1.5a: depth
