   May-09-19 Grand Chess Tour Cote d’Ivoire (Rapid & Blitz) (2019) (replies)
DirkMcCallahan: Incredible finish in the Amin-Nakamura game!
   Dec-05-18 Tiggler chessforum (replies)
DirkMcCallahan: <Tiggler> Thank you for your work on this! Of course, as others have pointed out, the games aren't truly independent trials (particularly in a case such as we saw in the 2018 WCC rapids), but it's quite interesting to see the theoretical breakdown, and I'd be curious to
   Nov-29-18 Carlsen - Caruana World Championship Match (2018) (replies)
DirkMcCallahan: <beatgiant: <DirkMcCallahan> Yes, you are confused. If Carlsen's chance of winning or drawing is .63, then <Carlsen's> chance of losing would have to be .37.> Of course; you're right. But I'm still not sure how Carlsen can have a .63 chance of winning OR ...
   Nov-28-18 Carlsen vs Caruana, 2018 (replies)

   Mar-27-18 Grischuk vs Caruana, 2018 (replies)
DirkMcCallahan: <morfishine: I'm not sure what demons Grischuk is seeing; it looks like he had the simple 48.Rxb2 cxb2 <49.Rb7>> I'm guessing 49...Rb8 would be the move.
