   Nov-22-17 FIDE Grand Prix Mallorca (2017) (replies)
 
HSOL: Someone might prove me wrong, but I think the draw frequency now is higher when the GP is Swiss rather than Round Robin format.
 
   Nov-08-17 Matulovic vs Ulf Andersson, 1972 (replies)
 
HSOL: According to the 1972 July ELO list which I would guess was published before the zonal, Andersson was already higher rated than Matulovic (2535 vs 2525). Also, Andersson had become a grandmaster during the last year before this game.
 
   Jul-30-17 Wesley So (replies)
 
HSOL: IF Carlsen enters and wins the Candidates, he then defends the World Championship by default?
 
   Jul-05-17 Dutch Championships (Women) (2017)
 
HSOL: Given Alina is affiliated with Romania according to FIDE, maybe you need to have Dutch FIDE registration so it's not enough to be a Dutch citizen (which I guess she is given her husband) to play in the Dutch championships?
 
   Jan-12-17 Karlheinz Hesselbarth
 
HSOL: Chessgames.com has often very few games compared to other databases. As an example, 365chess.com has 116 games with Hesselbarth. Your point stands though, they are from 2003-2007.
 
   Dec-30-16 World Blitz Championship (2016) (replies)
 
HSOL: Given the average opposition rating tiebreaker, wouldn't it be more fair if they discarded the opponents who finishes on the same points when calculating the average opposition rating.
 
   Nov-12-16 Carlsen - Karjakin World Championship (2016) (replies)
 
HSOL: HeMateMe: IMO Kasparov's world championship title only held the status of the world championship title in the eyes of the public (rather than the FIDE World Championship) because it was clear to most that Kasparov was the strongest player in the world.
 
   Nov-10-16 Piet Bakker
 
HSOL: In the IBM B tournament 1968 he finished last with 2 out of 11. In the Dutch championship 1967 he finished joint 10th with 3 out of 11. Other tournament results is joint 8th with 2 out of 9 in the IBM B tournament 1966 and last with 2 out of 9 in the Hoogovens B tournament 1962. In ...
 
   Apr-30-16 Ultimate Blitz Challenge (2016) (replies)
 
HSOL: I was surprised Kasparov didn't finish last. Caruana did a bit worse than I expected. <kellmano>: That annoys me too. Together with him saying similar stuff if the opponent play unsound openings. Other than that, I recommend his (Chessexplained) youtube channel. It's really good.
 
   Apr-27-16 US Chess Championships (Women) (2016)
 
HSOL: Regarding Melekhina's sub-par performance: The notion that you can't be competitive, which here I would say is performing about 2300, while having worked very long hours outside chess for several months I just don't buy. That Melekhina can't do it, being a 2300 player at her best*, is ...
