   Mar-28-16 World Championship Candidates (2016) (replies)
Isbjorn: <optimal play: As much as I admire Vishy, I'm glad we've been spared Carlsen-Anand III Karjakin doesn't have a hope against Magnus, but it should still be an interesting match.> Totally agreed about Anand. He's been at the top for a long time, but it's clear he won't be the ...
   Sep-07-14 Magnus Carlsen (replies)
Isbjorn: < bobthebob: <Anand did earn the right to play for the title fair and square.> doesn't matter. if Carlsen didn't play, then Anand would have competed for the title against Karjakin. The title is not an entitlement. It only belongs to Carlsen until the next match when 2 ...
   Sep-04-14 Sinquefield Cup (2014) (replies)
Isbjorn: Big congrats to Caruana. Also, nice of Carlsen to play a ballsy variation against Caruana. I was hoping for a decisive result (either way), but at the least the draw very hard fought.
   Aug-12-14 Chess Olympiad (2014) (replies)
Isbjorn: <SirRuthless: If Carlsen is goofing around and playing whatever just to spice things up, the emotion and reasoning this behavior is stemming from is not positive. For some players the Olympiad is the best it is going to get in their chess careers. To piss all over the opportunity
   Jun-13-14 Norway Chess (2014) (replies)
Isbjorn: < john barleycorn: < aliasniamor: Isn't this (even if he wins today) the worst performance of Carlsen for like 4 years?? I was a litte shocked that he missed the win yesterday. He must be human after all.> Nah, he is hiding his preparation for the match with Anand in ...
   May-01-14 Gashimov Memorial (2014) (replies)
Isbjorn: <Kinghunt: I have updated my tally of tournament wins by player. With this victory, Carlsen has now won 21 supertournaments, <equal> to the career totals of Topalov and Anand. Here is the full list: Kramnik: 23 Topalov: 21 Anand: 21 <Carlsen: 21 > ...
   Feb-02-14 Zurich Chess Challenge (2014) (replies)
Isbjorn: <Bobwhoosta: <asiduodiego> I think I could agree that one of Carlsen's relative weaknesses could be defense. IN his defense, I'd like to point out that he hardly ever gets any practice. ;-P> I note that you say "relative weakness", but I still don't quite agree. ...
   Nov-19-13 Anand - Carlsen World Championship Match (2013) (replies)
Isbjorn: The Anand - Carlsen match is quite over yet, but I think the most interesting opponents for Carlsen would be Kramnik and Caruana.
   Apr-02-13 World Championship Candidates (2013) (replies)
Isbjorn: <BadKnight: my personal opinion is that FIDE is a big joke, and they are incapable of coming with a reasonably stable cycle. the organization is run by lunatics who change things at their whim.> Yeah, the lack of stability is laughable. They should pick a system and stick to ...
   Aug-25-12 de Firmian vs N J Patterson, 1978 (replies)
Isbjorn: <Octal: Does 19 Bf6 also work?> 19. Bf6 was my move too. It allows a queen trade so I don't know how good it is.
