   Jan-08-18 Fischer - Spassky World Championship Match (1972) (replies)
 
HSOL: A brief check on wikipedia. In 1972, Fridrik Olafsson, later FIDE president, were the only Icelandic GM. Gudmundur Sigurjonsson was their 2nd in 1975 and then in the mid-80s they got several more. If GM norm performance has stayed the same rating-wise, IIRC 2600+ performance basically,
 
   Jan-03-18 Magnus Carlsen (replies)
 
HSOL: Presumably because neither Carlsen or Nakamura mind earning a few bucks in the process?
 
   Dec-30-17 World Blitz Championship (2017) (replies)
 
HSOL: AylerKupp: chess-results.com has Grischuk gaining 24 points. But Jobava gained 100+ points to close in on 2700. And a Russian FM, Esipenko also gained 100+ points and is close to 2700.
 
   Dec-23-17 L Engels vs E Eliskases, 1941 (replies)
 
HSOL: I would say you're both correct, since Eliskases was Austrian BUT he was also German champion and represented Germany in the Olympiad. What I definitely didn't know before checking his chessgames page was that EE also was Hungarian champion.
 
   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.
