   Apr-30-16 Ultimate Blitz Challenge (2016) (replies)
 
EGarrett: Was there an increment in this tournament or not? In the game where Kasparov flagged (I think it was against Caruana in the last few rounds), it seemed clear that he didn't have an increment. Yet I thought I saw it in other games and the description says it's 5 minutes + 3 ...
 
   Apr-16-16 Karpov vs Leko, 1995 (replies)
 
EGarrett: Leko's Immortal. No game exemplifies him better, let alone forcing an opponent the caliber of Karpov to enter his world in such a calculated and efficient fashion.
 
   Oct-17-15 Carlsen vs Kasparov, 2004 (replies)
 
EGarrett: This game can now be called "The Once and Future King."
 
   Apr-06-14 Aronian vs Anand, 2014 (replies)
 
EGarrett: The Aronian-Anand brilliancy game last year was called "Nerves of Steel." This one should be called "Nerves of Straw."
 
   Apr-06-14 Aronian vs Anand, 2013 (replies)
 
EGarrett: After 16...Nde5, black is hanging two pieces AND an exchange, and taking ANY of them will cause an immediate collapse for white. I've heard of poisoned pawns, but a poisoned Knight, Bishop and Rook, all in the same position...is just insane.
 
   Mar-04-14 Magnus Carlsen (replies)
 
EGarrett: So 23-year-old Magnus is 2881 with a 51-point gap over the World #2. At similar ages, Garry Kasparov was 2740 with a 35-point lead over the World #2 (July 1986), and Fischer didn't have an ELO list published (to my knowledge), but on the first FIDE List at roughly age 26 was 2720 ...
 
   Feb-17-14 Morozevich vs Tomashevsky, 2013 (replies)
 
EGarrett: To csmath, There are many things that might make a game great to someone. You seem to be trying to define it strictly as a feat of impressive calculation. But there are also things like determination and fighting spirit. Someone could easily view this game as great within that ...
 
   Feb-02-14 Nakamura vs Carlsen, 2014 (replies)
 
EGarrett: Whoever is saying that there's no such thing as a "non-human move" is falling victim to hindsight bias. It seems very understandable or easy to spot after the fact...once the computer has gone through millions of other possibilities and found it for you and presented it to you ...
 
   Dec-21-13 Carlsen vs Aronian, 2013 (replies)
 
EGarrett: The draw offer was directly after 46... Kb6. Here's a direct link to the moment in the official coverage: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UPrU...
 
   Dec-15-13 Ruy Lopez de Segura (replies)
 
EGarrett: Best thing is that he was literally a Bishop.
